If we needed additional proof that Democrats hate President Trump, Democrats supplied that proof today. Trump said “I am here today to break the logjam and provide congress with a pathway forward to end the government shutdown.” It didn’t take long for Democrats to reject President Trump’s plan:
But the approach had already been rejected by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats who said it largely repackaged a proposal that had failed earlier. Pelosi called the idea a “non-starter,” and Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) also panned the proposal as a way to reopen the government, even though Trump’s plan cribbed from Durbin’s own legislation.
Simply put, Democrats hate President Trump more than they like this country. Democrats don’t care if our nation is overrun with illegal aliens. Democrats don’t care if our border is secure. What Democrats want most of all is to politically demolish President Trump.
Obviously, the plan is to make Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and freshman House Democrats look unreasonable. That isn’t difficult since Democrats are totally unreasonable. Say goodbye to that Speaker’s gavel, Nancy. Many of those freshmen that were elected in 2018 won’t be returning thanks to your intransigence. Now that we know that Ms. Pelosi isn’t returning to the negotiating table, it’s time to go nuclear. The thing Republicans need to understand is that Democrats aren’t interested in bipartisanship. They’re interested in demolishing President Trump’s presidency. Period.
The Agenda Media won’t report on this fairly either. They’re part of the open borders crowd. They don’t care about protecting Americans. That’s why it’s impossible to pressure Democrats. It’d be different if we had an honest press. We don’t. (See Buzzfeed.) President Trump should drop the hammer the minute that Senate Democrats filibuster President Trump’s offer:
Here’s what I’d write if I was President Trump’s chief speechwriter:
Democrats in the House and Senate have left me no alternatives. While more caravans head toward the border, Democrats and their allies in the Agenda Media insist that this is a “manufactured crisis.” How dare they say that. I dare them to tell that to the Angel families that I’ve met, the Angel families that tried meeting with Speaker Pelosi but were told she wasn’t there.
Democrats insist that they’re for border security. That’s a lie. If they’re for true border security, they wouldn’t have voted to filibuster the bill just presented for Senate consideration. They wouldn’t have issued a letter saying that it was dead on arrival in the House.
In both instances, Democrats said that they’d only allow a vote if the government opened first. When I asked Speaker Pelosi if she’d fund the wall if I re-opened the government, she said “No.” I’ve been willing to negotiate throughout. Unfortunately, Democrats have rejected my offers to even meet. I can’t negotiate with myself.
Therefore, I’m left with just one option. Today, I’m invoking the Emergencies Act to protect the United States from mass illegal immigration, drug trafficking and human trafficking. While Democrats insist that I’m manufacturing this crisis, people from California to Texas to Staten Island have felt the pain of these criminals. If that doesn’t constitute a national emergency, nothing does.
My highest priority as president is to protect human lives. Because Democrats won’t join with me in protecting American lives, I’m taking action to protect those lives.
