Reviewing the Vice President’s Commentary

Pence appeared on a segment of ‘CBS This Morning.’ During this time on the show, the vice president explained his take on the latest shutdown of the United States government. His remarks subsequently read as follows:

“He was determined to get the funding to build a wall and secure our border; he was willing to take a stand to accomplish that.”

Pence then explained why Trump elected to sign legislation which will keep government open until February 15, 2019.

“We were told that they were willing to work with us. They were willing to fund a barrier at our southern border and to address the other priorities that the president laid out.”

President Trump and members of his administration have ongoingly articulated the importance of funding for his promised border wall.

Another Government Shutdown?

As February 15th gets closer and closer, more and more Americans are pondering the likelihood of another government shutdown. Similarly to before the government shut down, both President Trump and the Democrats are sticking by their mandates.
