President Donald Trump appears to be "caving" on his much-vaunted wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, according to conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh.
"I'm very, very troubled to have to pass this on. And I want to say at the outset that I hope my interpretation is wrong," Limbaugh said on his show Tuesday, The Hill reports.
Trump indicated on Monday that he would not demand funding for his proposed wall before the deadline for a government shutdown.
"But it looks like, from here, right here, right now, it looks like President Trump is caving on his demand for a measly $1 billion in the budget for his wall."
Limbaugh added that Trump seems to want to avoid a government shutdown by pulling back on funding for the border wall, and decried this as a win for the opposition.
"Democrats seem to have successfully used its stupid, silly threat of a government shutdown to get their way," he said. "And the bottom line is, is that if he is willing to draw a demand of his for a measly billion dollars for the wall because the Democrats are threatening a shutdown, then the Democrats will just have learned that his threat works on Trump too, not just all the other Republicans."
Trump denied reports that he's pulling support for the wall in a tweet Tuesday morning.
