It has been an eventful week in Washington DC. The Democrats refused to put America first, and held the government in a shutdown over the weekend until finally caving and giving the Republicans a big win.
After agreeing to passing the necessary funding bill in agreement for a future discussion on DACA, senate minority leader Chuck Schumer seemed to go back on his word to President Trump on border security measures.
On Tuesday, Schumer told reporters that he no longer will support the funding for Trump’s proposed border wall.
“The thought was that we could come to an agreement that afternoon, the president would announce his support, and the Senate and the House would get it done and it would be on the president’s desk. He didn’t do that. So we’re going to have to start on a new basis, and so the wall offer is off the table,” Schumer said.
What the senate minority leader does not understand is that the border wall is something that THE AMERICAN PEOPLE want. Democrats continue to obstruct the construction of the wall along the Mexican border, even as poll after poll shows that Americans will feel safer once the wall is up.
Trump, who has campaigned on the building of the wall, will not back down. On Wednesday morning, in response to Schumer’s comments, President Trump posted a public message directed at Schumer:
“Cryin’ Chuck Schumer fully understands, especially after his humiliating defeat, that if there is no Wall, there is no DACA. We must have safety and security, together with a strong Military, for our great people!”
The Democrats keep choosing illegal immigrants over legal Americans. This country needs to start putting America first! And that is exactly what President Trump will do.
