Former senior White House aide Marc Short on Monday questioned if there will be a “pressure point” to prevent a government shutdown over border wall funding.
“What is different with this shut down is typically it’s a full government shut down,” Short argued on CNN’s “New Day.”
He continued, “You’ve already funded all the men and women in uniform, you funded HHS and basically entitlement checks, so the pressure point to bring this to a close — I don’t see. It’s a very different shutdown. It’s a partial shutdown that’s basically funding homeland security, and Democrats want to dig in on their opposition to the border wall, the president wants to get his $5 billion for border wall and I don’t see a resolution where there’s a pressure point that brings this to resolution.”
Short later added President Donald Trump will be willing to give “less” considering the end of the Republican-controlled Congress is approaching.
