Democrats Say They Regret Spending Deal With Trump That Allowed $7.2B To Go To Fund For Wall

Published

House Democrats are extremely frustrated and upset over the news on Tuesday that President Trump is planning to take $7.2 billion from the military to fund the border wall to help curb illegal immigration, lamenting that they didn’t take enough proper action to stop it from happening.

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

Following a Washington Post report late Monday on the White House’s plans to take $7.2 billion in Pentagon funding in the fiscal 2020 budget to build more fence at the U.S.-Mexico border, Rep. Joaquin Castro of Texas said Democrats should have fought harder to block Trump from redirecting appropriated money.

“I voted against that appropriations bill for one reason because it didn’t contain any restraints on the president transferring the money. I anticipated that would always be problematic,” Castro, chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, told reporters on Capitol Hill Tuesday morning. “I think we should have fought for language that restrained the transfer of that money.”

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Florida Democrat and chairwoman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies, said House Democrats pushed Senate Republicans “as far as we could” when both chambers went to conference. “It was among the last things that were finalized. We could not have pushed it harder,” she said.

Chairwoman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security stated that lawmakers’ hands were tied on this deal from the very beginning.

“It doesn’t matter what the Congress does. The president does whatever he pleases,” She told the press. “Hopefully, the courts will rule in our favor.”

This is just further proof that the security of our nation is not exactly a top priority for Democrats. They’re far more concerned with finding a targeted demographic to offer free things to in order to swindle them into voting for them later on down the road in elections.

Sad, but it’s the truth.

Watch: Pelosi Gloats As She Fist Bumps Bill Maher, Says Trump Is Now ‘Impeached Forever’

Is she still feeling ‘somber?’

The goal of impeaching President Trump was never to kick him out of office. The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives knew from the start that POTUS would be acquitted in the Senate. It’s only a matter of time. The whole point was to stain his record because they have nothing else to go on. The economy is great. Unemployment is in the basement. Jobs are abundant. Enemies fear America. Like I said, they have nothing. Check out Pelosi on Bill Maher, via The Blaze: In the days leading up to the House of Representatives passing the articles of impeachment against President Trump, Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi told members of her party to appear “solemn” during proceedings. “Don’t cheer, keep it solemn,” Pelosi said, according to a swing-district Democrat. One month later, and the appearances of solemnity appears to have gone out the window.

The LSU Tigers are fresh off a college football national championship after defeating Clemson on January 13. Unlike other teams, collegiate or professional, LSU didn’t shun President Trump in order to gain some credit with far-left loons in the media. The team showed up to the White House and created a memory that will last forever. On top of that, a video of some of the players dancing in the Oval Office has since gone viral.

From Fox News: On Friday the players danced in suits and ties — joined by the woman, whose daughter later identified her on Twitter as her mother, Gemi Bordelon, wife of former LSU Tiger offensive tackle Ben Bordelon, who went on to play for the NFL’s San Diego (now Los Angeles) Chargers in 1997, Heavy and WBRZ-TV in Baton Rouge reported. The Bordelons joined the team on the White House visit because they’re close with members of the Louisiana congressional delegation, WBRZ reported.
