Trump Makes DEVASTATING Threat to Democrats Over Border Wall

Linkedin Share

With our nation’s partial government shutdown trading into nearly its second week, the stalemate seems destined to remain intact for the time being.

The democrats are stalling based on a silly, wonton political move by Nancy Pelosi, apparently:

Mick Mulvaney, Trump’s incoming acting chief of staff, claimed Friday on “Fox & Friends” that it appeared Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer is interested in a deal but Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi is preventing it. He alleged Democrats are not dealing because Pelosi is waiting until she secures the speakership.

Does this mean that Pelosi is willing to capitulate to Trump, but only after she regains the position of House Speaker?  This would be an irresponsibly selfish move on her part, and would likely further damage the poor reputation of the already doomed democratic party.

Perhaps it was this brazen and conceited behavior that prompted President Trump to proffer his latest threats on immigration.

President Trump warned Friday that if Democrats do not agree to his demands to fund a wall on the southern border, he will “close the Southern border entirely” and cut aid to Central American countries — while pulling back on trade with Mexico.

“We will be forced to close the Southern Border entirely if the Obstructionist Democrats do not give us the money to finish the Wall & also change the ridiculous immigration laws that our Country is saddled with,” he tweeted Friday morning. “Hard to believe there was a Congress & President who would approve!”

The tweetstorm came amid the partial government shutdown that will soon enter its second week. The closures began last Saturday after Republicans and Democrats were unable to agree on a funding package that would keep the government open and fund Trump’s promised border wall. Trump has demanded $5 billion for the barrier, but Democrats have refused, instead offering $1.3 billion for general border security.

The President has previously threatened to allow the shutdown to continue for as long as necessary to secure funding for his border wall..
