A top Dem in the U.S. House of Representatives is urging that Democrats include money for the wall that President Trump is asking for.
According to The Daily Wire:
Minnesota Democrat Rep. Collin Peterson said in an interview this week that the Democrats should give President Donald Trump the money that he wants to build the border wall on the southern border.
Peterson, the Chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, told KFGO’s “News & Views” on Tuesday that “when I bring up what I have to say [to Democrats], they look at me cross-eyed.”
“Give Trump the money,” Peterson said, adding that he would “give him the whole thing … and put strings on it so you make sure he puts the wall where it needs to be.”
“Why are we fighting over this?” Peterson continued. “We’re going to build that wall anyway, at some time.”
The rep attempted to clarify his position stating that the money for the wall should only be included with strings attached.
