Trump is ‘giving in’: Fox News declares government funding deal a ‘big victory for Democrats’

Published

on

On Friday, lawmakers reportedly agreed to a tentative deal to reopen the federal government, after 35 days during which 800,000 federal workers were unpaid and major airports warned they would have to start redirecting flights.

President Donald Trump will not be getting his funding request for a wall met.

On Fox News Friday, the network’s chief White House correspondent deemed the deal a major loss for Trump.

“If the president agrees to a three week continuing resolution with no funding for border security, but there’s an agreement to negotiate, that’s something that Nancy Pelosi has been floating for a couple of weeks now,” Fox News reporter John Roberts said. “That’s something Lindsey Graham floated a couple of weeks ago that the president rejected out of hand.”

“So if that’s what he agrees to, it’s difficult to see this as anything but the president giving in to Democrats on Capitol Hill,” Roberts concluded. “Because he has been so insistent about the fact that any deal to reopen government needed to include money. Not just for border security, but for a border wall as well. If he gives up that significant piece of it, I would say that’s a big victory Democrats.”

In a new low, last week he threatened the federal funding of two states over their reasonable moves to facilitate mail-in voting," the newspaper noted in an editorial published online on Memorial Day. "What does it say that the head of the world’s leading democracy is so intent on undermining that democracy?"

On Monday, during his observance of Memorial Day, former Vice President Joe Biden donned a face mask in accordance with CDC guidelines — a contrast with President Donald Trump, who has frequently refused to wear a mask even in some places that require them.

But Fox News senior analyst Brit Hume went out of his way to mock how Biden looked wearing it.

On Monday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) announced he was revoking his endorsement of Ted Howze, the Republican candidate for California's 10th Congressional District, per Politico.

“In light of Mr. Howze’s disappointing comments, Leader McCarthy has withdrawn his endorsement," said McCarthy spokesperson Drew Florio. "As the Leader has previously stated, hateful rhetoric has no place within the Republican Party."

Howze's support within the Republican Party leadership has collapsed after a series of racist Facebook posts were unconvered, in which he called Black voters "political slaves," compared young immigrants to pedophiles, and said Muslims are incapable of being good American citizens.
