字幕対訳

It was Donald Trump’s most famous campaign promise: the border wall.
So the president demanded five billion dollars from Congress by Friday, or he’ll trigger a government shutdown.
Today, Republicans proposed 1.6 billion dollars in new spending for border security, but not for a wall.
And another one billion dollars the president could spend as he chose.
But Democrats called that a slush fund, and rejected it.
Congress making it clear tonight that they are still looking to President Trump to somehow end this standoff and prevent a government shutdown right before Christmas?
That’s right. The ball’s in his court. The leaders are saying their members want to go home
if that means passing a stopgap spending measure for a few weeks. So be it one thing.
This president does not have the votes for that wall.

国境の壁は大統領の有名な選挙公約
50億ドルの予算を要求し政府機関の閉鎖も辞さない構えだ
共和党は壁ではなく国境警備予算として16億ドルを提案し—
大統領が随意に使える10億ドルも計上
これは裏金だと民主党は拒否した
議会は大統領がクリスマス前の政府機関閉鎖を防ぐと期待している?
議員たちは休暇を求めているので—
数週間分の暫定予算措置を講じることになる
大統領の壁は支持されていない
