There is no wall money not one dollar going toward the president's Walters one point.

Who have try to get in funding for the border all have said that and declaring a national emergency may not be the right path but. Heat the deadline is Friday at midnight and if he doesn't sign on it this deal that they've come up with then again there's no border while money there. Then he's.

On that got age that is being stuck on the board the between Venezuela and Colombia it's not been allowed then. By the military and old entry points a lot of it's being stockpiled. And White House's but don't sit around the board that now yesterday the opposition leader of one glide data. He made an announcement he's said today we delivered the fascination. But noticeable step because the border is still blocked. For the time being here's pays thing with piles of this aid he didn't ebony that he didn't give any and information on wet but they did come from. Where it was being delivered to this aid has become a flashpoint in the tussle between him and president Madeira. Remember that Kwan whether the a position it he's been and he's been sort of approved by the entire community that recognize him. As he eyes the legitimate interim president. The the government in Venezuela has attacked this as being a pot of American backed affix its G tech news. In Venezuela but just one of told you just quickly about how important this aid is. As the reports that inflation hyperinflation but as well as reaching. Two point seven million to well I think it could be as high ten million of its Elliott relate to the yeah.

Another story that we're looking into just want to take you over to Russia because this is a ready really interesting story now. As part of that than war gaming strategy. The Russians are tying up to exercise or a test what the day his layup briefly unplugging. From the incident that's now that doing this to Tryon calculate whether they. Can withstand.
