During an explosive meeting today with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, President Trump refused to be bullied by the pair despite their best efforts.
Both Pelosi and Schumer and threatening to shut the government down in lieu of approving the $5 billion that President Trump is asking for in order to fund his border wall.
Several times, the meeting devolved into chaos with both Pelosi and Schumer interrupting President Trump to continue telling him that they wouldn’t fund his wall.
You can see several times that Pelosi and Schumer do not like being told that it will be their fault if the government is shut down on the December 21st deadline.
Schumer hangs his head in shame as Trump once again gains the upper hand and refuses to be bullied.
“If we don’t have border security, we will shut down the government. This country needs border security. The wall is a part of border security. … We are going to get the wall built and we’ve done a lot of wall already.”
This is why we elected President Trump in 2016. Americans showed up to their polling places and told Congress that we want border security and we want a wall.
Do you think the border wall is an important means to protect our country?
