House Democrat Nancy Pelosi has continued to obstruct funding for border security and has led the government shutdown into a record-breaking length.
Pelosi even went so far as to cancel Trump’s State of the Union address, saying that security concerns were at stake during the government shutdown that drags on.
“Sadly, given the security concerns and unless the government reopens this week, I suggest we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th.”
However, many Republicans and American citizens are praising Trump for holding firm in his campaign promises to the American people to protect our southern border.
In an epic response, to Pelosi’s obstruction, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise
“Hopefully it provides her more opportunity to go and sit down with the president, because President Trump has been clear from the beginning of this,” said Scalise. “He’s laid out what the security experts have said it’ll take to keep our country safe and secure the border.”
Scalise is completely correct. Pelosi has been putting her own interests ahead of the American people for way too long. It’s time for her to get her priorities aligned with Americans’ best interests. Scalise goes on to slam Pelosi for her refusal to ‘offer anything to the table.’
“She’s refused to offer anything on the table. It’s time for that to end. She’s got to start negotiating or release everybody else and let someone else negotiate for her since she’s been unable to at least show any willingness,” Scalise said.
