Unless you lived under a rock in 2016 you’ve heard President Trump’s unbiqoutus slogan #MAGA, or Make America Great Again.
Trump’s even announced his slogan for the 2020 race Keep American Great (KAG), but there is a new acronym that is taking Washington D.C. by storm.
“NBAT” stands for Never Bet Against Trump and the President is showing everyday why that’s true.
When the so-called “Omnibus” spending bill was passed by Congress, it looked like another Swamp-Thing and a huge waste of money.
While on paper is seemed terrible it turns out President Trump might have a few tricks up his sleeve.
Reported on The Gateway Pundit:
“Trump pulled a fast one on Democrats. This is not a budget, it’s an omnibus spending bill. Which means Trump can ignore Congress’ instructions on where to spend the money allocated. Trump can take the money and spend it however he wants- just as Obama did. Trump can use that precedent to ignore the bad Democrat priorities in this omnibus bill and instead redirect the money to his priorities- like the wall with Mexico.
My DC insiders report Trump can use his presidential powers to declare the wall with Mexico a “national security emergency” and redirect $25 billion of military spending towards building the wall. And as a bonus, there’s enough new military spending in this omnibus bill to reinvigorate the U.S. military that Obama almost destroyed through neglect.”
While it will take time to see exactly see what happens, Trump appears to be looking for outside-the-box ways to pay for #MAGA priorities any way possible.
One should also note that Trump has seen criticism or feet-dragging on almost every aspect of building the border wall, leaving many to speculate he would have to sign a deal in favor to the Democrats to get funding. Trump the deal-master may very well have pulled a fast one on the Democrats with this most recent move.
