Possible Budget Deal Falls Short of Trump’s Demands

President Donald Trump soon could be getting a budget proposal that doesn’t include his demands to fully fund a border security wall, according to reports late Monday.

Trump was just about to participate in a rally in El Paso, Texas, on Monday night when he heard that a tentative deal was reached.

Congressional negotiators have been meeting for the past couple of weeks to try to avert another partial government shutdown. Negotiators reached a deal late on Monday that includes $1.375 billion to build 55 miles of new border barriers, the Associated Press reported in the evening.

Trump is unlikely to sign such a proposal if he sticks by his demand for $5.7 billion to build over 200 miles of wall along the southern border.

The funds will also be for vertical steel slats called bollards, instead of for a solid concrete wall.
