President Trump has been locked in a bitter battle with Democrats in Congress over funding for a wall on the southern border.
In response to the shutdown, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also canceled Trump’s State of the Union Address to Congress as a means to punish him for delivering on his campaign promises of protecting America’s borders.
Even through all of this obstruction, President Trump decided to reopen the government temporarily because he did not want the hundreds of thousands of federal workers to suffer any more.
Now that the government is temporarily back open, Democrats are acting like they “won” the border wall funding dispute and they continue to try and mock President Trump.
One of the ways they are trying to mock him is to bring certain people to the State of the Union address that they think will anger Trump.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) is bringing the activist who went viral in 2018 for accosting Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake in an elevator over his support for then-Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley has invited a mother and daughter from Guatemala who were separated for two months at the border after being denied asylum in the United States.
There are others who are just flat out refusing to come to the address and have made a show of boycotting it altogether.
Former Congressman Trey Gowdy knows that these Democrats are just trying to get President Trump angry and deflect from the true issues. He has some sage advice for him.
“There’s not a single person on the floor of the House that hasn’t already made up his or her mind about any issue that comes up tonight. Your audience is the American people. You’re gonna stand where less than 50 people have ever stood in our country’s history. … Ignore the people who want to drive up their Twitter followers.”
This is the best advice for President Trump as this is the single thing he could do to make Democrats the angriest.
