Jim’s Rant For The Day. Trump’s Golden Rule.
If I am understanding BPEarthwatch correctly, Trump now controls the government’s gold for the next eight months.
The Omnibus Bill he just signed was not a Budget bill, a hard allocation on how that money must be spent. Instead it was a Omnibus bill, designed to cover the government spending for the rest of the year. However, it is just suggestions on how to spend all that money, and Trump gets to decide how it will ultimately be spent.
Therefore, if he wants to defund the FBI during this period and instead build the wall, he can. Wow, did Congress screw up!
