Published

on

Fresh off of winning the Florida GOP straw poll, Herman Cain appeared on CNN’s American Morning Monday to discuss his sudden momentum in the presidential race, as well as the current battle on Capital Hill over disaster relief funding.

“I would make sure that FEMA got the money it needed, and if I had to go find the offsets later, go find it later,” he said, without directly calling out the House GOP. “Stop playing with peoples’ tragedies. These are real people we’re talking about.”

Cain added: “We’re going to have a gentleman’s agreement that we will find the offsets, rather than finding the offsets right in the middle of it and making it a political football.”

Published

on

President Donald Trump's pledge to build a wall at the southern border with Mexico has been a huge winner with his base. But there is one group of people who are not happy: the Texans who actually live in the region where the wall would be built.

According to the Washington Post, many people in the region have no intention of letting the federal government seize their land to construct the wall, like Afghanistan war veteran Salvador Castillo of Brownsville, who received a letter from officials demanding unlimited access to and use of his land, which gradually escalated into a lawsuit.
