Chuck Schumer just asked Donald Trump to admit this massive defeat
Chuck Schumer and Donald Trump are locked in a fight that could determine the President’s 2020 re-election chances.
Democrats know, if they win this fight, President Trump’s 2020 re-election chances plummet.
And now Chuck Schumer just asked Donald Trump to admit this massive defeat.
Schumer and the Democrats believe if President Trump does not show progress on building the wall, then his base will not turn out in 2020.
Democrats convincing President George H.W. Bush to break his “read my lips” pledge on taxes before losing the 1992 election is the template they operate under.
Schumer is trying to recreate that by asking the President to withdraw his five billion dollars in funding requests for the border wall and instead use it to fund programs combating white supremacy and researching gun violence.
— SCHUMER in a statement to Playbook: “The dual scourges of gun violence and violent white supremacist extremism in this country are a national security threat plain and simple, and it’s time the Trump administration and Republicans in Congress starting treating them as such. Now Republicans and this administration need to put their money where their mouth is when it comes to addressing gun violence and stopping the rise of domestic terrorism, especially stemming from white supremacy. Democrats are prepared to work in a bipartisan fashion to respond to Director Wray’s clarion call on a briefing call with Senate Democrats last week for additional resources to address this national security crisis on our own soil.”
Democrats believe they have President Trump and Republicans on the rope on issues surrounding guns and white supremacy because the shooter in El Paso targeted Mexicans and issued a racist manifesto before his act of madness.
The media will certainly echo Democrat Party talking points about how the wall doesn’t protect America and that white supremacy and guns are the true threats the government should worry about.
But following that advice will have disastrous consequences for the President.
