President Trump’s surprise announcement, made yesterday, regarding his primetime address at 9m Tuesday night, was strategic.
Make no mistake about it, the President knows exactly what he is doing. By giving the liberal left an entire day to show their hand, Trump can tweak his message throughout the business day today in order to avoid the pitfalls of the democratic rebuttal – a joint effort by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer scheduled to air immediately following the Commander in Chief.
Unfortunately, there is little hope that either of these democratic leaders will avoid one major pitfall in their rebuttal: The complete disregard for human lives being lost on the border.
Democrats have already dropped hints of what their response to President Donald Trump’s address Tuesday evening from the Oval Office on the border crisis will be.
The networks have granted Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) airtime to respond. Their message will be that there is no crisis that merits building a barrier on the border. The only crisis, to them, is the partial government shutdown.Trending:
As Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) said last week, responding to the suggestion Trump may declare an emergency so he can order the military to build the barrier: “There is no national emergency on the southern border.” He described the idea as “stealing resources from the Defense Department.”
