A new budget report has been released that restricts any and all funding of building the border wall that President Trump promised us.
Paul Ryan, the Speaker of the House, have committed an act of treason against the American people. We elected Donald Trump for many reasons, but one integral promise that got him elected was his promise to build a border wall.
Apparently, Paul Ryan and his GOP sellout buddies are willing to fund everything EXCEPT Trump’s border wall. Here are some things that Paul Ryan’s new budget will fund:
- Planned Parenthood
- Central American illegal immigrant centers
- The EPA
- Sanctuary cities
- …and more
According to the Washington Post, there are “explicit restrictions” to block the border wall:
“We knew last week there would be no money to start construction on a project that the president says is more important to his base than anything else. But the final agreement goes further, putting strict limitations on how Trump can use new money for border security (e.g. to invest in new technology and repair existing fencing). Administration officials have insisted they already have the statutory authority to start building the wall under a 2006 law. This prevents such an end run.”
“The $1.5 billion for border security is also half as much as the White House requested. Additionally, there are no cuts in funding to sanctuary cities, something a federal judge said last week would be required for the Justice Department to follow through on its threats. And there is also no money for a deportation force.”
So not only has Paul Ryan refused to honor the wishes of millions of Americans, but he’s also put strict limitations on how Trump can use this money for border security. In addition to this, he only gave President Trump HALF of the budget that he requested.
Trump also fought to defund planned parenthood, but despite his best efforts, they will continue to receive funding as usual. It seems that Paul Ryan and his posse of fake Republicans are set on fighting Trump every step of the way.
In addition to this, they also gave Trump HALF as much for the military as he said he needed. In a time when North Korea is possibly the greatest nuclear threat we’ve had in decades, these idiots think it’s wise to cut our military budget.
The Washington Post continues:
“Trump repeatedly prodded Congress to increase military spending by $30 billion. He’s getting $12.5 billion, with an additional $2.5 billion if/when he delivers a detailed plan on how to defeat the Islamic State. Many Democrats from states with bases and manufacturers, especially those up for reelection in 2018, wanted this, too. Like Trump, they will tout the increased spending as a victory. The White House plans to call this a down payment on a much bigger investment down the road.”
Overall this entire budget was an absolute failure—I’m sure that Trump fought very hard to keep his campaign promises, but it seems that Mr. Ryan and the corrupt congress values funding Planned Parenthood and illegal immigration more than strong country security.
