Participants said there are a number of options to avoid a partial suspension of Trump’s $ 5 billion claim for its border, but GOP legislators are in the dark as to what the president should actually sign.
“I do not know a particular plan yet,” Texas Sen John Cornyn, the second-ranked Republican Senate, said when he left McConnell’s office.
Question about Trump would sign a short-term measure to fight in January, Cornyn was still in a loss.
“I’ve heard that as mentioned,” Cornyn said on a short-term financial statement. “But I do not know if the president should sign it.”
With only four days to go until funding expires for a large part of the government, including the Home Security Department, Republicans grow impatiently – and worried – about the lack of strategy from the White House.
GOP negotiators have worked to design options for the White House, but now they have not received a green light to move on to any of them, because the president believes he must have $ 5 billion in border financing to print on some agreement. Sources start by acknowledging that the solution may need to be a short-term agreement to extend funding at current levels – or face the partial state shutdown. But these sources say that a final decision has still not been made – mainly because of the president.
GOP senators say that Trump seems to be able to exert the greatest pressure on Democrats and force them to cave by financing his border. But Republicans fear that they will suffer from the political backlash if there is a shutdown over the wall.
“I really do not know, and I do not think anyone does,” said a GOP Senator for the president’s thinking. “I think he plays this game to the end because he thinks he can get a better hand.”
The Senate added: “I think Republicans do not want to see that we are blamed.”
Then. Richard Shelby, an Alabama republic and chairman of the affairs committee, suggested that legislators could get a signal from the White House on Monday night, but he was not sure what it would be – or if it would happen.  “He may be receptive to doing nothing. Let it throw away,” Shelby referred to Trump, told reporters after arriving from a closed door meeting with McConnell. “I do not know.”
Among the options is a short-term point to the new year that would freeze spending levels for 25% of the federal government before a deadline of 21 December. In recent days, negotiators have played with several combinations of long-term options that may include increased funding for border security through other mechanisms – some Democrats have made it clear that they are likely to oppose. Another option that has become liquid continues the funding of the Department of Homeland Security – the bill in the middle of the wall struggle – for one month, while continuing long-term funding for the six other unlawful appropriations.
