Durbin: Trump’s ‘Outlandish’ Border Wall a ‘Political Stunt’

Sun, 04/23/2017 - 15:56

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), said President Donald Trump’s proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall was “a political stunt.” Durbin said, “The Democrats in the house and the senate are ready to work and cooperate with the White House to keep the government open. But we told the president weeks ago, don’t try any political stunts, don’t put any poison pills into this process. Let’s just do the responsible important work of funding this government. We know what this wall is all about. This was a promise made by the president during his campaign. Don’t you remember he said the Mexicans were going to pay for it? Now we know it’s going to cost 20 to 70 billion dollars for this wall. We have Democrats and Republicans all along the border opposing this deal. It’s a political stunt, an obsession for the president that should not shut down our government.” He added, “I hope the president will back off. To think that he would consider shutting down the government of the United States of America over this outlandish proposal of a border wall which we can’t even pay for at this point and is opposed by

ABC’s Jon Karl: In First 100 Days, Trump Has ‘Fallen Dramatically Short’ of the Standard He Set

Sun, 04/23/2017 - 14:31

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” ABC News chief Washington correspondent Jon Karl said President Donald Trump had “fallen dramatically short” of the standard he set for his first 100 days during the 2016 presidential campaign. Remarks as follows: Well, on one hand, George, Donald Trump has truly shaken up Washington and he has big plans for the rest of the year. But by the standards that he set for himself during the campaign, there is no question that he has fallen dramatically short in the first 100 days. Just take a look at this. Back in October, he offered what he called a contract with the American voter. This is ten specific promises, ten pieces of legislation, that he promised to introduce and, quote, “fight for their passage within the first 100 day of my administration.” Well, George, only one of those has even been introduced. And that is repealing and replacing Obamacare. And obviously, that hasn’t passed. There is one area where there has been a significant impact though, in the first 100 days, and that’s on regulations. Cutting, rolling back regulations that Obama put in place, especially on the environment. His economic team believes this is already having

Sun, 04/23/2017 - 13:29

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said President Donald Trump’s proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall could be paid for with improperly paid tax credits that go to “mostly Mexicans.” Partial transcript as follows: STEPHANOPOULOS: You sound quite confident right there. Do you have any evidence that Mexico is going to pay for it? SESSIONS: Well, we’re going to get paid for it one way or the other. I know there’s $4 billion a year in excess payments, according to the Department of the Treasury’s own inspector general several years ago that are going to payments to people — tax credits that they shouldn’t get. Now, these are mostly Mexicans. And those kind of things add up — $4 billion a year for 10 years is $40 billion. There are a lot of ways we can find money to help pay for this. But in the long run… STEPHANOPOULOS: How are you going to… SESSIONS: — they’ve lost those… STEPHANOPOULOS: — account for that money? SESSIONS: What’s that? STEPHANOPOULOS: How are you going to account for… SESSIONS: Well, we just… STEPHANOPOULOS: — that money?
