Hair Führer gives us a master class in how to spin his defeat on the resolution that funds the government through September but includes no money for any of his signature issues or priorities:
[Trump] said “this is what winning looks like” and rattled off parts of the spending bill he liked: “After years of partisan bickering and gridlock, this bill is a clear win for the American people. We brought lawmakers together from both sides of the aisle to deliver a budget that funds the rebuilding of the United States military, makes historic investments in border security, and provides health care for our miners and school choice for our disadvantaged children. Very importantly, there is no long-term bailout for the insurance companies that the Democrats desperately wanted to subsidize, donors, the badly failing Obamacare.” He said that “we are beginning to build the wall,” cajoled House Republicans over the health care bill — saying “I think it’s time now” for the bill — and talked up the Air Force football team, which was standing behind him for the conference. And he mentioned he spoke with Bob Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots.
