Chuck Schumer made one bad decision that he will live to regret
Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi marched to the White House for a meeting about the government shutdown.
It did not go like anyone expected.
That’s because Schumer made one terrible decision that he will live to regret.
Schumer, Pelosi, and other Democrats traveled to the White House for a briefing about border security and why the wall is necessary to stop the scourge of illegal immigration.
But before Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen could begin her presentation, Schumer and Pelosi cut her off.
They had no interest in hearing what she had to say.
The Daily Caller reports:
The White House official told TheDC that both Pelosi and Schumer refused to hear out Nielsen’s briefing and instead advocated for two solutions to end the government shutdown. Neither of the Democratic options would provide the additional funding for border security requested by The White House.
“Democrats in the room either don’t care that there is a humanitarian crisis on the border or just prefer ignorance. It was incredibly disheartening that they don’t want to know the facts when making policy,” DHS Spokeswoman Katie Waldman said in a statement to TheDC.
Democrats made their position clear.
They will not vote for one penny of border wall funding.
President Trump’s only option is to keep the government shut down until they cry uncle.
This is a test of wills and some think it could determine if President Trump sinks or swims in his 2020 re-election campaign.
Democrats know this, and that’s why Schumer and Pelosi made a scene in the Oval Office.
