On Tuesday, President Trump met with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, and soon to be House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, where they discussed another continuing resolution to fund the government. President Trump had already threatened to shut down the government if he didn’t get at least $5 billion dollars towards the construction of a border wall along the US, Mexico border. However, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer vowed to BLOCK ALL FUNDING for the border wall, and instead have proposed to grant amnesty to hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants. Pelosi and Schumer went even further and accused the President of a failure, as he has been unable to fund the wall with Republican control of the House, Senate, and Presidency.
However, what the Democrats fail to, or even want to admit, is the fact that between the Democrats mission of ‘RESISTANCE’ against the Presidents entire agenda, and the Progressive RINO’s (Republicans In Name Only) like Jeff Flake (AZ-R), Susan Collins (ME-R), and Lisa Murkowski (AK-R), President Trump doesn’t have a way to reach 60 votes in the Senate, which would secure funding for a border wall. In reality, the President could get it passed in the House of Representatives until Democrats take over in January, but the Republicans don’t have a super-majority, and Democrats have vowed to block, and followed through with their ‘resistance’ efforts, concerning everything on his agenda.
Now, as the President meets with Pelosi and Schumer to try to reach a bipartisan deal, the Democrats began goading him, and blaming the President for failing to achieve, what they have effectively blocked…BORDER SECURITY FOR OUR NATION, AND ALL AMERICANS!
However, to the dismay of both Chuck and Nancy, President Trump responded Senator Chuck Schumer, by saying that…
“I am proud to shut down the government for border security, Chuck!”

In an amazing show of leadership, President Trump held his ground, as he called out the Democrat leaders lies and distortions, interrupted their talking points, and then corrected them on border security. In all, the President did what he does so well and destroyed them, and in spectacular fashion. In all, he left Pelosi and Schumer without words!
In fact, the President has said on repeated occasions that he expects funding to secure America’s borders, as he fights to reign in an out-of-control immigration system, which has led to increased crime rates, higher murder rates, and countless billions in tax dollars being paid out in food stamps, welfare, legal fees, deportation, housing, and other expenses, which has ballooned Americas deficit, and siphoned money the American taxpayers pockets.
Currently, the President is asking for just $5 billion of his border wall funding, but Democrats have said that they will only give the President $1.3 billion for border security, and none of it can be used for a border wall. After all, a wall would be a permanent fix that would save American lives, stop drug cartels, stop child sex trafficking and human trafficking, reduce crime, and save taxpayers countless billions of dollars in taxes in the long-term. However, for the President, has said since 2016 that the safety and security of the American people is his first priority!
Ultimately, the deadline for negotiations over funding comes on December 21st of this year. Also to date, Congress has funded three-fourths of the government, so a government shut-down would be only a soft shutdown, as only the non-essential parts of the government would be closed down. Regardless, the impasse that has become evident between Congressional Republicans and the President, and the Democrats have only solidified. Furthermore, President Trump revealed that if the Democrats effectively block him from being able to secure the border and protect the American people, he will use the military to build the remaining sections of the wall. President Trump tweeted…
Throughout the meeting, Schumer and Pelosi were attacking the President, but President Trump called out Pelosi and Schumer, and corrected them on border security, as he interrupted their talking points, in effect DESTROYING THEM! Then, the President went on to say that he would shut the government down and take the blame for it. In effect, he took the power away from Pelosi and Schumer, as they wanted to control the conversation, and use the shut-down as a ploy to get him to change his stance. President Trump said…
“If we don’t get what we want, one way or the other, whether it’s through you, through military, through anything you want to call, I will shut down the government,” Trump said. “I will take the mantle. I will be the one to shut it down.”

Schumer and Pelosi also criticized the President’s border wall, which would protect Americans for costing $5 billion, but they were alright with Obama sending a $5.7 billion in cash to Iran, who have vowed to wipe America off the face of the earth, more than 7 billion on Head Start, which has been a colossal failure, and tens of billions of dollars that the American taxpayer pays out to fund border walls for other nations like Israel. However, Democrats call it racist, impractical, and immoral to build our own wall! TALK ABOUT A LACK OF PRIORITIES AND OUT OF TOUCH WITH THE NEEDS OF AMERICANS!

Ironically, the President was handed the potential financing for the wall when he signed the Omnibus bill in March of 2018. Some speculated that the Democrats won against the President regarding the Omnibus, but many failed to see through the smoke and mirrors, and now the President’s backup plan is beginning to become more and more clear. In truth, President Trump likely devised a plan that nobody predicted, as the Omnibus allowed billions in ‘discretionary spending’ to fall on the Presidents lap. Now, Democrats are likely beginning to realize, just why President Trump said he would NEVER sign another bill like the Omnibus again. In reality, it is likely because he knows it was a mistake that the swamp will not make again. As a result, he signed the largest spending bill in the history of our Republic. Not because it was a perfect bill, but because it was necessary to accomplish the promises that he made to ‘We the People’. In March, the President even said…
Now, reports indicate that the President intends on using the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to help build the border wall. They are considered the greatest construction crew in the world. They build, maintain and establish projects all around the globe, and in some of the most inhospitable climates and circumstances were known to man. They work on projects in more than 130 countries. The military responds to and works on projects due to hurricanes, fires, floods, and numerous other national disasters. If they can rebuild cities, roads, schools, and other infrastructure projects following wars and disasters, and in all climates and weather, building a border wall along our southern border would be easy for them.
Therefore, even though the RINO-Republicans and Progressive-Democrats made sure that President Trump would have his hands tied on being able to spend Omnibus funds set aside for a border wall, they failed to size up their opponent well. In fact, they didn’t plan on the President using their gift of the largest defense spending package in history against them.
On Sunday, March 25, 2018, President Trump tweeted out:
Therefore, the President has been planning all along to use the military non-discretionary military funding as a back-up-plan to build the wall, and he wouldn’t need Congress’ approval. Now, as Democrats appear to be holding our government hostage, the President is looking to utilize his backup plan as a last resort. As a result, the President will fulfill yet another promise, regardless of what the Democrats and left-wing socialist media try to say or do, and put the security and well-being of the American people first.
After the meeting with the President, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told Democrats in a closed-door meeting Tuesday following her clash with the president at the White House. President Donald Trump’s willingness to trigger a partial government shutdown over funding for his proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall boils down “to a manhood thing,” She said…
“It’s like a manhood thing for him. As if manhood could ever be associated with him. This wall thing. I was trying to be the mom. I can’t explain it to you. It was so wild. It goes to show you: you get into a tickle contest with a skunk, you get tinkle all over you.”

However, is all Pelosi showed is her lack of tact, and her sexist attitude, as she demonstrated how no mother should talk!
