Conservative radio presenter Rush Limbaugh, speaking to "Fox News Sunday," said the spending compromise bill recently signed by President Trump to prevent a further partial government blockade has not occurred. was that a disguised effort by some Republicans to torpedo his bid for the presidency of 2020.
"Both parties have people still trying to get rid of Donald Trump," Limbaugh said, saying the Democrats were also working to secure "a permanent subgroup of voters," "uneducated" "and" do not even speak "English. He continued: "I have read this bill.This spending bill is outrageous."
Limbaugh rejected claims that Trump was unduly influenced by right-wing media figures and "wackos" – a charge that has resurfaced in the midst of the ongoing dispute over the financing of borders.
At the end of last year, a host of prominent conservatives, including columnist Ann Coulter, exiled Trump for appearing to yield to his threat of signing no spending bill without funding. Trump responded by dropping Coulter on Twitter, then reversing the proceedings and insisting that the fence project get money for a 35-day partial government shutdown.
"It's only an extra effort to keep trying to diminish the president, diminish President Trump, because someone who does not know what he's doing, can not do it." without the help of the hogwash, "said Limbaugh to host Chris Wallace. "It's not at all his way of governing, and there's no one doing what I do that has anything to do with developing a policy for that." President."
On Friday, Trump said he was declaring a national emergency on the southern border, taking advantage of executive powers in order to divert billions of dollars toward building a wall, even though it "s not the same. he had signed a funding program to avoid a new closure with only $ 1.4 billion for border security. – far from the $ 5.7 billion that he's been asking for for a long time for the wall.
The compromise bill, which was passed overwhelmingly by the House and Senate last week, provided for sufficient funding for the construction of only 55 kilometers of barricades, and not for the approximately 200 kilometers that the House- Blanche had asked.

The bill, which required three weeks of negotiations between negotiators, has funded an additional 5,000 beds that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) can use to house illegal immigrants. But in an effort to lobby the agency for it to hold fewer illegal immigrants, Democrats ensured that the bill did not include funding for the 2,000 ICE agents. additional requests by the Trump administration, or 750 border patrol agents also sought.
Several Republicans, including Texas officials Dan Crenshaw and Chip Roy, voted against the bill, saying it was not properly treating the flow of illegal immigrants and drugs across the border. Roy called the bill "dummy" and said the funding bill "calls into question the meaning of the emergency declaration".
"We have an emergency – it's an invasion."
For his part, Limbaugh said the Democrats' resistance to even minimal border security measures was not sufficiently taken into account. In an interview last week, the candidate for the prospective Democratic presidency, Beto O 'Rourke, called for the destruction of existing border walls. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democratic presidential candidate, said that she "could also support" this position.
"We have an emergency – it's an invasion," Limbaugh said, citing the flow of thousands of illegal immigrants – many in organized caravans – who continue to approach the US border.
"The very existence and definition of American culture, American society, the rule of law – why no one speaks about the fact that millions and millions of people are illegally violating the law here and that the Democratic Party wishes this to happen? " Asked Limbaugh.
The spending compromise bill will undermine the White House and produce no results at the border, Limbaugh added, adding that this may well be the intention of some Republicans.
"The reception centers of newly arrived foreign illegal aliens, as well as all kinds of medical care – the purpose of this bill, I think, was eventually to be used by Democrats and some Republicans to tell the American people: "You see, elect President Trump was useless, worthless, he can not protect you, he can not stop us, he can not do what he said that he was going because we hate him so much that we will not allow him. Do it – that's what this bill is, "said Limbaugh.
Urged by Wallace for his vicious criticism of the radical actions of the executive, former President Obama, Mr. Limbaugh said, "What Obama did was to advance the existing problem. .. Yes, I'm opposed to it, but mainly because of what he was doing with these measures. " executive powers. "
The efforts recently unveiled by the FBI and the Justice Department to begin discussions on Trump's ouster in 2017, continued Limbaugh, only reinforce his point of view. Fox News first reported on Sunday that FBI senior lawyer James Baker had testified in camera in front of the Congress in front of detailed witnesses of alleged discussions between senior officials of the Justice Department regarding the issue. 39, invoking the 25th amendment to remove Trump from office, claiming that he was informed by Deputy Attorney General Rod. Rosenstein said two members of the Trump cabinet were "ready to support" such an effort.
The testimony was delivered last fall to the oversight committees and the judiciary of the House. Fox News has confirmed excerpts from the transcript. He provided additional information on the discussions that took over in Washington, while FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe re-examined the issue in interviews promoting his next book.

"People, simply because they do not like a man's hairstyle or where he comes from, have decided that the decision of the American people was invalid and have started a systematic process to remove him from his post.This is a silent coup d'etat, "said Limbaugh. "These guys, if you ask me, should be those who are in jail."
When asked who would probably be the Democratic presidential candidate of 2020, Mr. Limbaugh sided with former Vice President Joe Biden. Although Biden did not officially announce his candidacy, an informed source told Fox News on Thursday that he was almost certain to run.
"The favorite would probably now be Joe Biden, 77, a plagiarist, nicknamed" plugs "- I think that's the guy they probably think he's the leader in polls in. this moment, "said Limbaugh. "But there's going to be a lot of people, they're going to be taunting, it's going to be fun to watch, there's a lot of power … They're ahead of the game, and I do not think that's will be as easy as they think.
