Democrats withdraw offer to fund Trump's border wallTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) -Democratic members of the US Senate have withdrawn an offer to fund the construction project of US President Donald Trump’s border wall along the southern border with Mexico.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer confirmed on Tuesday that the offer to discuss funding for the controversial US-Mexico border wall had been taken back due to what he said was Trump’s failure to follow through on the outlines of an agreement discussed last week.

Reports said Trump and Schumer had discussed a $31 billion package to pay for security measures along the southern border, far larger than the amount the US president had told lawmakers he would need to fulfill his signature campaign pledge.

"We're going to have to start on a new basis and the wall offer is off the table," Schumer told reporters, saying that the offer was initially "part of a package."
