President Trump got a big win Thursday night when the House of Representatives voted to include funding for the wall in the short-term continuing resolution that will keep the government open.

According to The Daily Wire:

The U.S. House of Representatives approved $5.7 billion for President Donald Trump's proposed border wall on Thursday night after Trump said that he would not sign a short-term continuing resolution approved by the Senate because it did not include funding for the wall.

"House approves $5.7 billion for President Trump's border wall, sending bill back to Senate and raising risk of partial shutdown," The Associated Press tweeted.


Funding for the border wall passed 217-185 along party lines and now goes to the Senate for a vote.

President Trump took to Twitter yesterday to share his thoughts:
  The House Freedom Caucus also issued a statement via Twitter:
  Trump is urging the Senate to get the spending bill including the funding for the wall passed no matter what they have to do to make it happen. It remains unclear if they will include the funding or not.
