Soon after Trump’s announcement speech, I said he would win the nomination and likely the election. It wasn’t that hard to predict. For anyone familiar with the Republican Party’s repeated betrayals of the American people, it was a 2-foot putt.
I issue this warning with the same certitude — in fact, for the exact same reason I knew anyone running on Trump’s platform would have unbreakable support from millions of voters.
What coalesced Trump’s base, what made his support tempered steel, was the fact that voters had been lied to, over and over again — on many things, but most smugly and repeatedly on immigration.
Compromise. It’s a word President Trump used several times yesterday. He is open to compromise. In this case, that means something short of the $5 billion he wants for a border wall. He’s open to taking less, perhaps in exchange for not applying the law to younger illegal immigrants. This is clearly the easiest way out of the current debacle. But it is something the Democrats, led by “No Wall” Nancy Pelosi, have said they will never support.
This is a problem. Democrats have backed themselves up against a, well, a wall. They have created a situation in which if they give even one dollar to Trump to build a wall, or fence, steel barrier, or whatever, they have lost the political fight. Pelosi, the great speaker of the House who gets things done, has left herself no leverage to get anything done. She could ask for almost anything in exchange for wall funding, but instead, she won’t budge.
As the shutdown heads into its fourth week, the nation is getting used to the radical idea that we can actually do without the fleets of bureaucrats who, in the immortal words of the Declaration of Independence, have been “sent hither to harass our people and eat out their substance.” For decades, as the federal leviathan has grown ever larger, and poked its voracious snout into all manners of unconstitutional fodder, the people of the United States have largely sat idly by, hoping to catch some of the droppings from the creature’s maw in the belief that it will not eat them too as it forages merrily along.
…The delegation’s letter specifically takes aim at President Trump, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and US Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland
“They lambast the EU as bureaucratic, make no secret of their preference to deal with individual member state governments bilaterally, and have praised populist and nationalist movements,” wrote the delegation in its open letter.
He’s made his case to the American people, the Democrats have responded with all the nonsense we’ve come to expect, let’s see what he does after the Dems are backed into a corner at tomorrow’s meeting.
MY FELLOW AMERICANS, TONIGHT I AM SPEAKING TO YOU BECAUSE THERE IS A GROWING HUMANITARIAN AN SECURITY CRISIS AT OUR SOUTHERN BORDER. EVERYDAY CUSTOMS AND… he didn’t announce an emergency, instead he’s going to have a meeting. FFS.
Pelosi and Schumer are asking Americans to let their gardeners and toenail clippers stay in the USA. FFS.
President Donald Trump will speak directly to the nation on Tuesday evening as a government shutdown enters its third week, and Democrats on Capitol Hill continue to refuse to fund border security and a border wall that Trump promised the American people.
Democrats know that the wall is imminent. Is the pending dread more psychologically damaging than the erection of the wall?
Democrats know that the wall is what will finally break them, and no amount of Democrat and Democrat Media Industrial Complex (DMIC) agitprop will ever tear down the wall. It will be the chasm between the old guard and the burgeoning of Leninism within the party.
President Trump doubled down on his funding for a border wall Saturday morning just before meeting with congressional leaders at the White House. The meeting comes amid calls from the Democrats to end the two-week partial government shutdown while negotiations continue. Trump, however, won’t budge saying the budget must include the $5.6 billion funding requested by the administration for the wall.
President Trump stood firm Friday on his demands for a border wall after the second White House meeting with congressional leaders this week broke up with no apparent deal, warning Democrats the partial government shutdown could last “years” and saying he could even declare a “national emergency” to bypass Congress if necessary.
“We can call a national emergency [to build a border wall] because of the security of our country,” Trump told reporters in the Rose Garden, during a lengthy and impromptu press conference.
“I may do it,” he said, before adding, “If we can do it through a negotiated process, we’re giving it a shot.”
In his first Cabinet meeting of 2019, US President Donald Trump reflected on his lack of popularity in Europe. The president told reporters on Wednesday that he was unfazed by low approval ratings among Europeans, saying it was his job to demand that Europe treat the US more fairly.
“That’s why I got elected,” Trump said, reiterating that European countries must be pushed to increase their share of defense spending, a point he has made repeatedly when talking about NATO funding and defense and security in Europe.
“I shouldn’t be popular in Europe. If I was popular in Europe, I wouldn’t be doing my job,” he added.
Donald Trump has said his proposed border wall cannot be ‘immoral’ because the Vatican City has its own 40ft defenses.
Speaking at the White House after meeting congressional Democrats yesterday he said the Vatican ‘has the biggest wall of them all’.
Drones flying above the border could only take ‘nice pictures’ and only a wall would stop people crossing illegally from Mexico, he said.
There is nothing immoral about securing your nation’s border. The Vatican is being destroyed from within, much as the Roman empire was. There is no reason for America to follow their path to destruction. Canada is a lost cause, the country we grew up in is being erased via mass immigration. Tribalized by the import of incompatible cultures in the name of diversity and multiculturalism.
President Trump has reduced the number of foreign refugees admitted to the United States this calendar year by more than 75 percent compared to former President Obama’s wave of migration in his last year.
Wrapping up 2018, the Trump administration admitted about 22,900 refugees to the U.S. with more than 70 percent of those refugees being Christians. Meanwhile, less than 15 percent of the refugees admitted this year were Muslim.
President Donald Trump blamed Democrats on Saturday for the deaths of two children at the border.
“Any deaths of children or others at the Border are strictly the fault of the Democrats and their pathetic immigration policies that allow people to make the long trek thinking they can enter our country illegally,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
