President Trump should not sign the continuing resolution, ALG launches

Dec. 20, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging President Donald Trump to not sign the continuing resolution without adequate wall funding:

“President Donald Trump is exactly correct. At the outset of this Congress, House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell promised to provide $12 billion to $15 billion to fully fund the wall. Now that we’re at the end of this two-year Congress, there is one last chance for them to fulfill this pledge, and it makes little sense for them to squander it. Should the short-term continuing resolution pass, President Trump should exercise his constitutional power to not sign the bill, shutting down part of the government, and negotiating a better deal. The failure of Congress to provide even basic security at the border by fully funding the wall is inexcusable and irresponsible. Americans for Limited Government has launched to support this President in his attempt to restore sanity to our nation’s funding priorities.”
