Donald Trump handed Chuck Schumer the one piece of paper that doomed him to defeat

The bad news keeps pouring in for Chuck Schumer.

Schumer was reeling after President Trump vetoed his resolution of disapproval to stop border wall construction.

Then President Trump handed Schumer the one piece of paper that doomed him to defeat.

The President’s plan to use the military to build the border wall is becoming close to reality.

It is no longer an abstract plan.

The Trump administration submitted the list of military construction funds that they plan to tap for border wall funding.

Politico reports:

The Pentagon on Monday sent lawmakers a lengthy list of nearly $12.9 billion in unobligated military construction funds that could be raided to build more barriers on the U.S.-Mexico border as part of President Donald Trump’s national emergency.

The move comes after Democrats accused Acting Defense Secretary Pat Shanahan of stonewalling lawmakers on whether military projects in their states are at risk.

The Pentagon list outlines nearly $12.9 billion in projects across the military services that were unawarded as of Dec. 31. The bulk of money is concentrated in the last two fiscal years — nearly $6.8 billion for projects in the current 2019 fiscal year and nearly $4.3 billion for fiscal 2018.

Democrats dreaded this day.

They were counting on Trump making no progress on the wall ahead of the 2020 election.

That is clearly not the case.

The Trump administration expects to begin new wall construction in April.

And by submitting a list of military construction funds to be used for the wall, President Trump plans to spend the entire $5.6 billion he says he is entitled to on new border wall construction.

That is not how Schumer and the Democrats thought this fight would go.

    This is an older story and I loved it!! I have never seen a President do what they say what they will do. He is so awesome! If we could put the dem hacks in place our President can even do more. I say for every day they were screwing around being idiots that time should be given back to President Trump. He should also have the chance for four more years for their punishment. That’s ok because I do believe their punishment is coming for doing so many crimes. Thank you so much for everything President Trump!!

  2. Sun~Rose says:

    Our President is already up there with Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Eisenhower as the best Presidents! Interestingly, President Trump is the first President in this group who is not part black.

    Every post I’ve made was rejected by Trump, if you dont want the truth keep reading his lies and pat yourself on the back and your comrade s.

    • Dale L Rak says:

      Comrade is the Democratic party. Each and every one of them

    • Steff says:

      Do you mean that the president blocked you? Must have been earth shattering lies that you posted!! We the people know the truth, but obviously you are one of the brainwashed or stupid. We know that stupid can’t be fixed, but if you are ignorant, you might want to listen and read the truth instead of the communist liberals.

    • Pat says:

      Marshall, President Trump has no control over your posts whatsoever. He has more important things to do.

    • MARK says:

God B less you & VP Pence ,America, Veterans, Police Officers & all Legal Citizens, all the true honest Republicans in Congress !! Thank God for all the Blessings he gives America ! We are so Blessed !

      • marionbmc says:

        Sorry, there are NO truly honest Republicans OR Democrats in Congress. All of them need to go so we can begin again with a clean slate.

        • marionbmc says:

          Umm, sorry. Not all of them need to go. We need to keep one and that is Donald Trump, bless his heart. And yes, I am from the south. 🙂

    Finally!

  9. Robert Higginbotham says:

    Let’s see now we have a large bunch of democrats headed by Schumer and Pelosi against one person, President Donald Trump. Yet at every turn the president gets one up on the democrats and RINOs. I would love to be a fly on the wall in Schumer’s office and listen to him rant and rave. We will have a wall.

    • don says:

      shumer and pelosi are so stupid they can’t do anything and have done nothing. They SUCK.
      I purposely didn’t call them senators or reps as they have no credence for what mostly don’t do.
      also no capitol letter in front of name.

  10. Delaware GG says:

    Perhaps all of the illegals that get into the USA should stay with a politician that is against the wall until such time it can be determined if the illegals are allowed to stay. The politician (Federal, State and local) MUST be responsible for housing, feeding, clothing and any medical care they might need. I hear Pelosi has plenty of room as well as a lot of California’s politicians. It might be a ride in the back of a cattle truck (with the cattle) to ship them off to Schumer and his domain.

  11. Leslie says:

    I was a Hungarian border patrol we have stap bamp 5fit ways we would try working wet well you step on You as God by!Hope we try.No more illegal crossing Garantid!,,,,,,,,,,,,

  12. charles ruppert says:

    Build the wall & install 30 caliber machine gun mounds

  13. gb says:

    Thanks to our great President we finally get the wall that has needed built for years. I wish we
    could keep him in office for more then 8 years. What he promised he has gotten done even with having to put up with all the crap the demorats throw at him. I just hope they all have to pay for it at election time.

  14. KB says:

    So, the dims don’t want a wall (barrier), how about a mine field instead? Also, we should stop ALL immigration until congress fixes our immigration laws and then ENFORCE same.

  15. Beth Massey says:

    I am glad we finally going to get our WALL THE PEOPLE’S WALL. Now we need to get rid of those Muslims out of Congress. All they want to do is destroy our government and country from within and this needs to be stopped now not later. Their intentions are to destroy what we stand for in this country and if we don’t conform to their Sharia law they will just kill us. If things don’t change soon in this country I fully believe we are heading for another Civil or Revolutionary War in this country again. If you come to America you respect our laws and our traditions, if not then leave and never come back, because we only want people that will stand behind America and what we stand for….. GO MAGA GO TRUMP 2020 KEEP AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, AMEN🇺🇸🙏🇺🇸🙏

    • Ronald Dunne says:

      The key to removing most if not all muzzies from congress is to remove and deport all muzzies, ALL MUZZIES! from the USA. Some will lie and prevaricate on their muzziehood so some form of trials will need to be set up to determine who the secret muzzies are.. Cannot believe that only 18 years out from 9-11 we are still dickin around with these people in this country.

      • Mary Berneathy says:

        I cannot understand how they can be in Congress, when a muslim will not pledge allegiance to OUR COUNTRY.

        • Randy Griffin says:

          They hold their hand up and say the words when sworn in but it means nothing…they are sworn in and then they turn around and start their bitching and harping on why we don’t want Sharia law….throw them all out and forget about them…they would kill us and not give a second thought about us…

      • Sun~Rose says:

        Well We have muslim neighbors up the street. They’ve been here for years. The husband is big on old cars, which are great. The boys are all American, and the wife is a devout Koran reader. I wouldn’t like to see them go. They’re very American. Other than that family though …

        And I do believe it is against the law for any muslim to run for office in this country.

    • Lin says:

      Most don’t even deserve the first term, let alone a second. When we get a good one I wish we could keep them longer, yes!

  16. John J says:

    I also support lining it with solar panels and electrifying it

  17. David says:

    All u who support this and the President are crazy. And this country was built on what people said is crazy. So I am crazy too I back this 110%. Keep going Mr President. Build America’s wall.

  18. Joe says:

    TO ALL OF YOU THAT REPLIED TO “BUILD THE WALL”, YOU ARE EXAMPLES OF “TRUE PATRIOTS”!! GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

  19. Michael Brown says:

    When I was driving a truck there were times I slept in one of our terminals on the border of El Paso. Our terminal was a compound and one of the security guards told me that he heard gun fire quite often. And Beto wants to tear down the wall. His head is that of a coke head.

    • Patricia Hundley says:

      He may be a coke head but , my bet is on the fact that the “cartels” are paying him & that is why he wants no walls, to keep the money flowing into his pockets.
      How else do you think he got all of those millions of dollars for his campaign for senate ?

      • George R Wurston says:

        I agree! Think about it, all the politicians that were against illegal immigration just a few years ago are now for it. They were against it until Trump said he was going to build a wall to stop drugs from coming into the country. Now they’re for it . Why? What changed their minds? Oh, I don’t know. Maybe some drug cartel payoffs…

  20. Karin says:

    So it says that the President is only going to use the 5.2 Billion of the 12.9 billion in military funds to get the wall that the House said no-dice about. And use the military to do it. They did a great job on the razor wire. And I am sure they will do a great job on the barrier.

  21. Steveur says:

    It may well be the wall wanted for decades and promised by all the Two Faced Politicians, who used it as a ploy to get elected, yes it’s the wall of the People who have waited and fought for it. One thing though, we would not have this wall without the greatness of President Trump, who was relentless in beating the LEFTISTS and the RINO’S to their knee’s, a proven American, who delivered on his Promises. TRUMP MAGA 2020 even Greater.

  22. andy douglas says:

    Make sure Schumer gets credit for no projects getting financed in his state!

  23. Jerry says:

    Our nation is in bad shape because of the Demorats. They are a nasty bunch of thugs and evidence points to their anti-jewish position and anti-Israel . Israel is our friend but how long will they be because of the
    position some of our recent elected government Demorats. President Trump will prevail in the end because of all the lies and corruption on behalf of the Demorats. They seem to be hell bound to destroy our government. They don’t care about the American people they only care about power and what they want for themselves. May God bless America and president Trump.

        PRISIDENT TRUMP 2020 ……HISPANIC AMERICAN WAR VETERAN……..ALWAYS AT THE READY GO TRUMP 2020…. THE FIGHT GOES ON…..

  25. Bobby says:

    Put construction of the border wall out for competitive bid with multiple contracts awarded to qualified companies for x-number of miles of wall similar to the way construction of Interstate highways are built. Homeland Security or DoD can do the contracting…..doesn’t matter.

    • Robert says:

      Are you kidding, with as long as it takes to out up a highway, ut would be another 30 years before the damn wall was built. Let the Army Corp if Engineers handle the job, at least it will be done quickly and efficiently . Just take a look at the interstate construction around Dallas, most of it is obsolete long before it’s ever finished. Is that the kind of wall you want.

      • mike dar says:

        A lot of the slow construction effects are dur to how the contracts are disbursed, 50% of all contracts go to corporations with offices within 50 miles of the White House… for example.
        I would propose that commercial entities can get the job done effectively and cost consistent to awards… but those companies have to be chosen wisely… hence the Deep State resisting Trump. FWIW, much of Highway infrastructure has become a gifted Social jobs program.

  26. Brue Weibel says:

    BUILD THAT WALL!! God Bless America and President Trump.

    • MARK says:

      HELL YES MILITARY FUNDS TO BUILD THE WALL AND SEND IN A FEW TANKS AND BRADLEYS TO ASSIST WITH THEIR SECURITY WHILE BUILDING THE WALL TO HELL WITH THOSE DIM WITTED DEMOCRAPS SUPPORT PRESIDENT AND LETS GET IT DONE SO WE CAN M.A.G.A.

  27. NOBODY says:

    Trump should NOT Support any of the rino’s they are traders to America,and to the GOP……..
    get themout with true republicans and americans

  28. Daniel Mount says:

    As long as the President uses the Army Core of Engineers with the Military so that we know that the wall will be built right and good.

  29. Mark says:

    All I can say is build that wall!!! And Hang in there President Trump Sir, your the best. Don’t let those slime balls on the left get to you if it does ever go south I believe there will be a huge civil war in this country that would be the first to shame.

  30. Dewey says:

    Schumer is a has been.
    He needs to find a life and retire.
    He is the primo example of why we need term limits now.
    Career politicians are a Hugh drain on our country, they need to retire.
    Some of these guy haven’t had a fresh idea in 20 years.
    Look at Beto, the jerk served in Congress and did nothing!

    • MARK says:

      AMEN TO THAT GET THOSE LOW LIFE LONG TERMERS OUT AND FRESH BLOOD INTO THE CONGRESS KICK ALL THOSE DIM WITTED DEMOCRAPS OUT ONCE AND FOR AND NO SEVERENCE PAY TO ANY OF THEM. BETO IS NOTHING BUT AN AIR HEAD AND SHOULD BE LOCKED UP. GO GET EM PRESIDENT TRUMP M.A.G.A. SUPPORT YOU 100%

  31. Ted says:

    God bless President Trump. He is a true American and loves the USA and it’s citizens . The brain-dead democrat politicians and their stupid sheep are hell bent on destroying this great Country, and they all should be ashamed of themselves.

  32. Harvey Gordon says:

    Take a picture of,Palosey , Shummer, Durbin, Layhe, Finestein, and rest of the old rust buckets along with several rinoes in the Republican Party is a picture of what’s wrong with this country.

  33. Chief Kickabitch of the Slap-a-hoe tribe says:

    Build the wall now. My only suggestion would be to add cameras and electrify it. Then post it on social media. Would be entertaining.

    • 2004done says:

      Chief Kickalefty: A great use for Solar Power, in areas where fossil fuel generators aren’t practical. How could leftists argue with that?

  34. TK says:

    Put the Wall up now, and since the Military will most likely do it, have them also install M2 .50-cals every 1,000 meters or so with motion detector sights for day and infrared auto-targeting for night. A few well-place bursts at the feet of illegals should send the necessary messages. I don’t advocate shooting illegals, just scaring them enough to turn them around. But if they want to play dirty, then so be it.

  35. Milton Mort says:

    My only questions are how come my GOVERNMENT does NOTHING to stop the COMMUNIST ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT, ONE WORLD CURRENCY AND HIS DEEP STATE AGENTS OF GEORGE SOROS TAKING OVER THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. WHY ARE SOROS, HILLARY CLINTON, BILL CLINTON NOT BROUGHT TO JUSTICE. THE EVIDENCE OF THE CORRUPTION AND TREASON IN THE UPPER FBI’S OFFICE, ALSO THE STATE DEPARTMENT, AND THE TWO DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE HEADS WERE IN BED WITH THE CLINTONS. MY GOVERNMENT IS NOW IN BED WITH THE MARXISTS IN OUR CONGRESS AS WELL THE COMMUNIST PROGRESSIVE MEMBERS OF THE EDUCATION SYSTEM. I

  36. Harvey says:

    All senators and congressman stop!! Look around your district unless you are blind or totally supid you can see all the crime, over doses,and families being tore apart by the drug scourge and cartels. If a wall, which is a pittance of the money wasted on pork barrel projects, would save just over dose deaths each year would be more than the soldiers we lost in Vietnam! Our country is being tore apart in front of our eyes for politics and big money you the likes of George the pupiteer Sorros! Pay attention Joe Manchin!

  37. Walls work ! That’s why the demonrats are fighting the WALL tooth and nail. Antiamerican P. O. S.

  38. j brewer says:

    put the wall up now.

  39. Eugene says:

    Term Limits for all members of Congress. These people get too comfortable on doing nothing but bitching. How long would working class Americans keep their jobs with similar productivity performance levels?

    • Santa says:

      The only people we can hold responsible for the long term is the people voting them back in Pelosi, Schumer, Finestein, we only have ourselves to hold responsible, the only reason they keep getting reelected, is the democrats can’t find any one smarter than them, and they are only Idiots well I can”t hold myself responsible I didn’ t vote for them

  40. Miriam says:

    Yeah but are they going to let him have it . You know who is in charge of the financial section and if that isn’t a joke I don’t what is Maxine is going to hold onto that money with both fists and Aoc in that dept. And her and her manager or whatever you call them . Have put away about a million dollars. Not bad for someone who went on a cast call to play a United States Congressman and reads off a play book

  41. Michael says:

    I think besides finishing the wall we put in other security features, camera system, a high powered mace system that has automatic sensors to spray.

  42. Jim says:

    Is there no sympathy for Chucky after he has been castrated by Nancy.

  43. Lawrence says:

    The demonrats are confused in their stupidity, a good slap in their face. Now let’s see some indictments on the slime ball swampy scum suckers for all their known illegal activities such as sedition, espionage, obstruction of justice, lying to Congress and all other applicable and provable crimes they’ve committed. Come on AG Barr get yourself in gear and help give Americans a reason to regain their faith in our government again, this is long overdue.

  44. Notalib says:

    Trump, way to go! The Democrats are not only ant-Jewish, anti-Israel they are anti-American and pro illegal alien. After all AOC just said they are her constituency. The dem’s don’t want to protect Americans with a wall. They want to invite illegal aliens into America in spite of the terrible crimes they commit against us. Democrats, you are a sorry lot along with RINO’s.

  45. Richard daugherty says:

    Schumer is just one of the 535 traitors we have in office. All must go!! They have sold the American people out!

  46. Richard daugherty says:

    Schumer is just one of the 535 traitors we have in office. All must go!! They have sold the American people out!

  47. Alan L Patrick says:

    This will ultimately send the Democrats into another panic trying to Stop the building of Security for our Nation. No it’s not a perfect solution but it is a start and add in extra technology with the wall it WILL HELP. Those of you who think it won’t need to get out of your heads and look at what Options that have been suggested other than the wall. How practical it would be, how many extra personnel would have to be stationed along the border to pick up the people crossing that drones pick out.

    This is NOT Trumps wall people. Granted he made a promise to build it but it has been a sticking point for Long before Trump EVER came to be President

    • steff says:

      This is an excellent solution to the tie up in congress over the wall financing. The final settlement by congress allocated money for additional Border Patrol agents as well as additional technology for screening for drugs and for additional funds to take care of humanitarian aid for those that need it. Actually President Trump has gotten more committed funds than he asked for.

    • Truckman says:

      no as you say it is not Trump’s wall it is the People’s wall those of us that been wanting this done for years
