President Trump may reluctantly sign the congressional border wall deal in order to avert another U.S. government shutdown. With his executive power to declare a national emergency, President Trump expresses his displeasure with this House-Senate compromise, but he has to accept the $1.4 billion border wall deal. House and Senate negotiators tentatively reach a border security agreement in principle to avoid another partial government shutdown.

Several commentators view this presidential ploy as a risky maneuver that may open the Pandora box of future challenges both in court and in Congress. Trump seeks alternative public finance to fund the $5 billion southern border wall. The key immigration reform reflects the fact that President Trump faces political opposition from House Democrats with respect to public finance.

This public finance standoff may exacerbate the current U.S. fiscal budget deficit. In accordance with the Sargent-Wallace unpleasant monetarist arithmetic principle, the monetary authority would need to allow higher money supply growth or inflation in the form of higher seigniorage taxes if the fiscal authority continues to fund the budget deficit with incessant public bond issuance. In this light, the congressional border wall deal has profound policy implications for fiscal equilibrium as well as monetary price stability.
