As Shutdown Fight Turns Nasty, Trump Urges McConnell to Go ‘Nuclear’

We will have to see if McConnell’s views have changed due to the President’s not-so-subtle message.

With less than a day left to keep the government running, Donald Trump is pulling out all the stops, and he’s doing so as publicly as ever.

Among the tumult of the Washington swamp, President Trump has been demanding a wall on our southern border almost incessantly during his first two years as the President.  This isn’t some pet project that he’s obsessed with, however.  This is what the American people responded to on the campaign trail in 2016, and it’s likely a large part of the President’s popularity among the citizens of this great nation.  To defy them is to defy the duty of public servant, and President Trump understands that explicitly.

That’s why he is pushing Mitch McConnell to make a bold and decisive action on border wall funding today.  Nigh, immediately.

“Mitch, use the Nuclear Option and get it done!” he wrote on Twitter. “Our Country is counting on you!”

The government funding bill, including the $5 billion for border security passed the House of Representatives on Thursday with a wide majority.

Senate Democrats have vowed to oppose the bill which would prevent it from reaching the 60 vote threshold required to move forward.

Senator Steve Daines of Montana floated the option of using the nuclear option, which would allow the legislation to move forward with a 51 vote majority.

“House just passed a bill that fully funds government and enables Donald Trump to secure our border/build the wall,” he wrote on Twitter. “Senate can do same by eliminating the filibuster. 51 votes, same as we do for judges!”

McConnell has openly opposed the use of the “nuclear option” in the border wall fight, but that was before the President explicitly called for it.

Here’s a story you don’t see all the time…or ever. Then again, this is the year 2020 – anything goes. If you’re a history buff, here’s your break from politics for a few minutes. Check this out, via News & Observer: The historic Cape Hatteras Light Station grounds were closed Thursday after a bomb appeared in the surf at Buxton on the Outer Banks, according to the National Park Service. A half-mile safety perimeter was established to keep tourists out, including the lighthouse grounds, nearby parking lots and surrounding beach, officials said in a release. The iconic lighthouse, with its famous black and white stripes, dates to 1870. “After careful examination, a U.S. Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) unit from Norfolk, Virginia, confirmed that the object … is a live military ordnance,” the National Park Service said in an update Thursday night.

Trump Was A Longtime Presbyterian, Now He Says He Is Non-Denominational Christian

Doin’ things his way…

From New York Post: President Trump, who has long identified as a Presbyterian, now considers himself a non-denominational Christian, a new report said. The president shared his change in religious identity in a written interview with the Religious News Service. “Though I was confirmed at a Presbyterian church as a child, I now consider myself to be a non-denominational Christian,” Trump wrote, without giving an explanation for the transformation or saying when it occurred. Because everything is so PC and everybody is afraid of saying the wrong thing, free speech is at an all-time low. People are getting fired from their jobs, even expelled from school. At the end of the day, this proves that the left is winning. And it has to stop.
