As budget deadline looms, Trump pushes border wall funding
WASHINGTON - With a budget deadline looming, President Donald Trump plans a whirlwind of activities seeking to highlight accomplishments, And he'll do it while putting fresh pressure on congressional Democrats to pay for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, even if that pressure risks a possible government shutdown.
Trump approaches the symbolic 100-day mark for his administration this coming week juggling a renewed health care push and his demands that a must-pass government funding bill should include money for the wall.
The 100-day mark falls on Saturday, the same day government could shut down without a budget deal. Trump has announced a rally in Pennsylvania that day.
