Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway appeared on Sunday’s edition of “Fox & Friends” on Fox News, and one of the topics discussed was President Donald Trump’s dinner with “Chuck and Nancy,” aka Senate and House Minority Leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.
In the interview, Conway insisted that the White House is not budging on his border wall promise.
“The president has made clear, including this week, that if there’s no funding for the wall, no deal can be made,” she said. “He said it as plainly as possible for all to hear. Those are the president’s words, take it to the bank.” Conway then continued by arguing that the Democratic leaders are not framing the argument about bipartisanship in a realistic way.
“Secondly, bipartisanship is a means, it is not an end, it is not a goal or an objective here,” she added. “It is a vehicle by which you get things done, particularly when you need 60 votes in the Senate for certain matters, so this is what good negotiators and deal-makers make, but President Trump’s ideas prevailed.”
