Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi still have their knickers in a twist after getting embarrassed on national television by President Donald J. Trump.
FoxNews.com reports that
The top two Democratic congressional leaders blasted President Trump’s threat of a partial government shutdown if lawmakers do not approve $5 billion in funding toward a border wall with Mexico.
“Democrats and Republicans worked together to put together a [bill to] keep the government open,” Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi of California said at a news conference.
Senator Charles Schumer of New York added that Trump is “plunging the country into chaos” by threatening not to sign a bill that does not appropriate money for the wall.
He said Trump is “throwing a temper tantrum” because Senate Democrats will not go along with his border wall plans.
“All Speaker Ryan has to do is put [the non-wall bill] on the floor of the House,” Schumer said of how Congress can keep the government open after the Friday deadline.
“President Trump was attacked this morning and last night by the hard right, and fearful, he backed off his commitment to sign [the original] bill,” he said.
Pelosi added that it is “a very sad day for our country” with the added news that Gen. James Mattis, the now-outgoing secretary of defense is leaving.
She said Mattis was a moderating voice in the White House around a purportedly radical Trump.
Of course she did. General Mattis is a Democrat.
But, I digress.
For the Democrats to be calling Trump sticking to his guns about building a wall along America’s Southern Border, a “temper tantrum”, is the most ironic statement made in D.C. so far in the 21st Century.
The past 48 hours have been fascinating.
All of the self-proclaimed “political pundits” out there whether they were Democrats, Republicans, Conservatives, Liberals, Libertarians, and those who are sour about everything that Trump does, who are affectionately known at www.spartareport.com as “Doomers”, predicted that it was a certainty that Trump was going to cave on building the Border Wall, like the Vichy Republicans were wanting him to.
Trump is not a professional politician.
He is an American Businessman and Entrepreneur. A billionaire who, at an age when others in his tax bracket would be spending their time on the golf course or hold up like a recluse in one of their many mansions, chose instead to run for President of the United States of America in order to bring the country he loved back from a journey into the dust bins of history caused by professional politicians who remain mired to this day in the D.C. Swamp.
Those who have been poor stewards of the charge given them by American Voters to not only maintain our Sovereign Nation but to make it flourish, cannot stand our current President.
In the first two years of his presidency, he has accomplished more than his predecessors, remembering those who put him in office and doing his best to keep the promises which he made to them.
Chuck and Nancy, this is not a temper tantrum which you see when you look at the 45th President.
It is righteous indignation and dogged determination.
That is why he met with Republican Congressional Leaders yesterday and told them that he would veto any stop-gap legislation sent to him that did not include the 5 billion dollars that he wanted for the building of the Border Wall.
The House went back and passed it.
Now, it’s up to McConnell and the rest of the Senate to do the same.
Chuck and Nancy, you and the rest of your wannabe-socialist “fellow travelers” in the Democratic Party Hierarchy are not used to having a Republican President who fights back.
And, that is why it is you, not President Trump, who are still throwing a National Temper Tantrum 2 years after you lost the presidency.
President Trump does not play “the game” by YOUR rules.
Until He Comes,
