Trump supporters were nervous.
It looked like the President might back down on his threat to shut down the government over funding his border wall.
But then Rush Limbaugh left his audience speechless when he told them about one phone call with Donald Trump.
Limbaugh was one of many Trump supporters in conservative media urging the President to veto any government funding bill that did not fund the border wall.
As of Thursday night, it looked like Trump might sign the legislation.
But then after a White House meeting with House Republicans, Trump picked up the phone and dialed up Limbaugh.
Limbaugh excitedly told his audience that Trump told him he would veto any bill that did not fund the wall.
Conservative talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh revealed on his program that President Donald Trump informed him that he was prepared to veto a government funding bill if it failed to include wall funding.
“The president got word to me 20 minutes ago that if it comes back to him without money, if whatever happens in the House and Senate comes back to him with no allocation of $5 billion for the wall than he’s going to veto it,” Limbaugh told his listeners on his radio show just moments after Trump met with members of Congress on Thursday.
Trump supporters cheered this decision.
The Republicans would have no leverage once the Democrats took over the House on January 3.
Establishment Republicans tried to fool Trump into thinking a fight starting February 8 would be more advantageous for Trump.
That was rubbish.
Shutting down the government now is Trump’s only chance to win funding for his signature border wall proposal.
