Rush Limbaugh predicted President Donald Trump will not sign the omnibus spending bill unless funding for the proposed wall along the Mexican border is included.

"I guarantee, if there's no other funding to the wall, if this erases all funding for the wall, he won't sign it, no way," the conservative radio host said Wednesday.

Congress released a $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill that provides no funding for the border wall – caving into Democrats' demands the package not include anything for the proposed barrier. It does, however, include funds that can be used for a Gateway train tunnel pushed by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY.

"The wall funding — look, you and I know that the Republicans in Congress, many of them, not all, are totally opposed to the wall because they believe in comprehensive immigration reform," Limbaugh said. "They want amnesty. I think wall funding is gonna end up being a separate item anyway, because this is what Trump is up against.

"He's up against people that don't want to pay for it, even in his own party."

But Limbaugh noted there are other options available for Trump to fund his wall.

"There's all kinds of alternative ways to get money for the wall without even having new appropriations," he said. "But Trump is not gonna sign something that aces out the wall. That isn't gonna happen."
