Cassandra Fairbanks for the Gateway Pundit reports, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has blocked a third bill to reopen most of the government without funding the wall.
The Hill reports, “the Senate GOP leader didn’t explain his objection from the Senate floor but he has warned for weeks that he will not bring up a government funding bill unless it’s the product of an agreement between congressional Democratic leadership and President Trump.”
After McConnell turned down another House-passed bill on Tuesday, he stated that it would be pointless to approve a vote on any spending bill that does not have support from President Trump.
“In a situation like this where the president in my view is in the right place trying to get the right outcome… of course not,” McConnell told a reporter when asked if he would try to reopen the government with a veto override.
