特朗普总统力争边境墙拨款

更新时间:2018/11/29 8:06:39 来源:本站原创 作者:佚名

U.S. President Donald Trump says he would "totally be willing" to partially shut down the government next week if he does not get more funding for a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border to thwart Central American migrants from entering the country.

美国总统特朗普表示,如果他不能得到更多拨款建造美墨边境墙,以阻止中美洲移民进入美国,他将“完全愿意”部分政府部门下周关门。

The U.S. leader told the Politico news site he is insisting that $5 billion for wall construction be included in measures Congress needs to approve to keep several federal agencies open after their current spending authority expires December 7.

这位美国领导人对Politico新闻网站表示,他坚持要将50亿美元的建墙拨款纳入需要国会批准的、维持一些政府机构在12月7日预算授权到期之后继续运营的拨款案中。

Opposition Democrats have said they will approve $1.6 billion for the wall, leaving the two sides far apart.

反对党民主党人表示,他们将批准16亿美元用于建造隔离墙,与总统要求相距甚远。

"I don't do anything ... just for political gain," Trump said. "But I will tell you, politically speaking, that issue is a total winner. People look at the border, they look at the rush to the police, they look at the rock throwers and really hurting the people, the very brave border patrol folks. I think that it's a tremendous issue, but much more importantly, is really needed. So, we have to have border security."

特朗普说:“我做任何都不会只是为了获取政治利益。”他说,“但我告诉你,从政治上讲,建墙这件事是皆大欢喜。人们看着边境,看着警方的行动,看着投掷石块的人,那真的伤了人,那些非常勇敢的边境巡逻队员。我认为这建墙是一个巨大的问题,但更重要的是,是确实需要。我们必须拥有边境安全。”

Trump was referencing a Sunday confrontation at the border in which migrants hurled rocks at U.S. Border Patrol officers, with agents repelling the crowd with tear gas.

特朗普总统指的是星期天在边境地区发生的对抗,当时移民们向美国边境巡逻队员投掷石块,特工们用催泪瓦斯驱逐人群。

Even as Trump voiced his determination to win congressional approval for the $5 billion in initial funding for a wall estimated to cost more than $20 billion, he told The Washington Post in a separate interview that he could find other ways to build the wall or add more security along the border.

尽管特朗普表示他决心赢得国会批准的50亿美元的初始资金用于建造预计将花费超过200亿美元的边境墙,他在另一次华盛顿邮报的采访中说,他可以找到其他方法来建墙或加强边境安全。

"I think that's been shown better than ever in the last short period of two weeks that we need a wall," Trump told the newspaper. "I see the Democrats are going to want to do something, because they understand, too. Those pictures are very bad for the Democrats. We're not having a wall because of the Democrats. We need Democrat votes to have a wall."

特朗普表示,“我认为,过去两周的短暂时间里比以往任何时候都显示出我们需要一堵墙。”他说, “我看到民主党人会想要做点什么,因为他们也明白。这些图片对民主党来说非常糟糕。我们没有边境强是因为民主党人,我们需要民主党人投票才能建起一堵墙。”

House Speaker Paul Ryan, leader of the current majority Republican bloc in the House of Representatives, told reporters Wednesday that after the nationwide congressional elections in early November, "hopefully ... Democrats realize that a secure border should not be a Republican thing, it shouldn't be a Democrat thing, it's just good for the country. To actually secure our border."

众议院议长瑞安周三告诉记者,在11月初的国会中期选举结束之后,“希望......民主党人意识到安全的边界不应该只是共和党的事情,也不应该只是一个民主党人的事情,这是对国家有利的事,要真正保护我们的边界。”
