In an interview with “PBC NewsHour,” White House Director of Strategic Communications Mercedes Schlapp admitted that $1.3 billion of border funding was “obviously not going to be enough.”

Schlapp stated, “We know that the vice president, as well as the president, presented an offer to the Democrats. The Democrats said no. Democrats are stuck on the $1.3 billion figure. That’s obviously not going to be enough. In what they’re proposing right now, there is absolutely nothing, there is no funding for the border wall. And we’re talking about really, physical barrier.”
