Minority leader Nancy Pelosi has recently attacked Trump’s border wall, claiming that it will take food from babies, and cause dirty air and water.
This has all been happening in the wake of the government budget being set. Trump has been pushing hard to get the funds for his border wall, but it seems that Democrats are determined to fight him every step of the way.
The Hill reports:
“Top Democrats blasted President Trump on Monday, accusing him of derailing last-minute funding talks meant to avert a government shutdown by pressing for border wall funding.”
” ‘Our appropriators were well on a path to resolving their differences and finding their common ground, respecting each other’s priorities until the White House intervened,’ House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told reporters during a conference call.”
“Lawmakers have until Friday night to pass legislation keeping the government open after April 28, but they appear increasingly at an impasse with the White House.”
So let’s clarify a few things. The democrats have been pushing for massive amounts of funding, for all of their ridiculous programs, and they’re going to “blast Trump” for wanting a wall to protect our national security?
The hypocrisy of these people runs so deep that anyone with half a brain can see it. The democrats have asked for billions and billions of dollars to fund the giant failure that was Obamacare, foreign aid to multiple countries, food stamps, welfare to bums, and more.
…and now that President Trump wants to spend money on the border wall, for the sake of national security, they attack him? Illegal immigration alone costs us upwards of $112 billion a year, and according to the Washington Times, the border wall would actually SAVE us money:
“If President Trump’s border wall stopped just 10 percent of new illegal immigrants it would pay for itself by saving American taxpayers from spending money on services for those migrants over their lifetimes, according to a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies.”
“Mr. Camarota [the report’s author] said new research from the Institute for Defense Analysis calculated that 170,000 illegal immigrants successfully jumped the border in 2015. Stopping just an extra 20,000 a year over the next decade would be enough to pay for a wall at $15 billion — a figure floated by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell earlier this year.”
Yet, despite this simple logic, Democrats like Nancy “Nutjob” Pelosi continue to run their mouths, accusing Trump of stealing food from babies, and polluting clean air:
“Pelosi accused Trump of threatening to take ‘food out of the mouths of babies and seniors and education, clean air, clean water, scientific research off the table in significant way in order for him to pay for his immoral, ineffective, unwise proposal.’ ”
“Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Monday that if the White House backed away from the government funding talks, lawmakers could meet Friday’s deadline.”
“Democrats have warned for weeks that they would block any spending bill that included money for the border wall, which they view as a ‘poison pill’ provision. Republicans will need Democratic votes to pass the spending bill in the Senate, and could need help in the House if conservatives refuse to vote for the funding legislation.”
We elected President Trump based off of his promises—and he is trying his very best to uphold them to the American people, but the democrats are committing an act of treason. They’re prioritizing non-American citizens over AMERICAN citizens.
