Possible Budget Deal Falls Short of Trump's Demands

"A young man who's got very little going for himself except he's got a great first name". 'We had a massive crowd and my competitor had very few people'. Moving money from one account to another could be challenged in court, but top White House officials have said they are prepared for legal challenges. Ted Cruz, has yet to announce his intentions to run for president.

President Donald Trump is boasting about the size of the crowd attending his rally in El Paso, Texas, versus that for former Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke.

"'People are so eager to believe the worst of us in border towns, ' said Ness-Garcia, a family law attorney and founder of Women's March El Paso".

Congressional leaders say they have a deal to fund border security and avoid another government shutdown.

He tried to reset opinion in his favor late Monday by castigating Democrats who've lowballed his request for $5.7 billion in wall funding and sought to limit deportations by cutting funding for detention space at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The agreement includes $1.375 billion for physical barriers, but not a wall, according to a source familiar with the details.

It was altogether fitting that President Trump's rally Monday night in El Paso was something of a circus. O'Rourke may also have to contend against former vice-president Joe Biden. Beto O'Rourke in his hometown.

Trump saved his most direct attacks for O'Rourke, who is among a growing group of contenders directly challenging Trump over immigration and other issues. The emerging agreement was announced by a group of lawmakers, including Republican Senator Richard Shelby and Democratic Congresswoman Nita Lowey, after a closed-door meeting.

The aide said none of the money would be for a "wall", which Trump has been touting since he launched his campaign for president in 2016.

Watch: Remember When Donald Trump Wanted Mexico To Pay for the Wall?

"Thanks to a powerful border wall in El Paso, Texas, it's one of America's safest cities", Trump told the cheering crowd later during his speech.

Earlier Monday, O'Rourke told journalists the West Texas city was safe prior to the wall and, in fact, crime has slightly gone up since it was erected.

El Paso had a murder rate of less than half the national average in 2005, a year before the most recent expansion of its border fence. Federal Bureau of Investigation crime data suggest violent crimes began declining there in 2006.

The clash in El Paso came as Trump and some of his Democratic opponents are engaging one another directly in the run-up to a general election that is more than 600 days away.

An animated O'Rourke saluted migrants who walk "2,000 miles" to try to join the "idea that is America". Now they will need the support of Trump, who must sign the legislation.

In a taped interview with Oprah Winfrey in NY, O'Rourke, 46, appeared to be leaning toward a 2020 campaign for the White House but said he would make his decision after consulting his wife and three children. We have the chance to tell [Trump] and the country that immigrants commit crimes and violent crimes at a rate less than [people] who are born in this country.

O'Rourke said the protesters are calling for protecting DREAMers and welcoming asylum-seekers with "open arms" as well as making sure "we really live our ideals and our promise to one another". But Trump said "that's not the relationship I have with my people". "U.S.!" and "Build that wall!" to drown out several demonstrators who interrupted Trump multiple times. But going by the jubilation of an El Paso crowd that was happy to trade in the usual "Build the Wall" signs Monday for ones emblazoned "Finish the Wall", you might not want to bet on it.

And after pointing the finger at 2016 rival Hillary Clinton - without evidence - as a source of Russian Federation collusion, the crowd reprised the "lock her up" chant. He's not setting policy nor saying anything new. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and others.

Fox News host Sean Hannity broke into his network's coverage of the rally to call the spending negotiators' deal "garbage".

Trump's has previously claimed El Paso was one of the country's most unsafe cities prior to the construction of a government-sanctioned fence dividing the city and Ciudad Juárez in Mexico.

"Democrats have got to stop being so angry and they've got to start being partners", Trump also said, despite much of his rally criticism being aimed at his opposition party.
