Donald Trump is about to hit Chuck Schumer with a rude awakening about the wall
Chuck Schumer and the Democrats believe if they hold out a little longer Donald Trump will fold on the border wall.
But they never saw their own defeat coming.
That’s because Trump is about to hit Schumer with a rude awakening that will end up being the Democrats’ biggest embarrassment.
Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz is one of the President’s closest allies in Congress.
Gaetz appeared on Lou Dobbs’ Fox Business Channel program to discuss how Trump can secure funding for his promised border wall.
The Florida Congressman proposed Trump use emergency funding powers to begin wall construction.
On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) stated that President Trump will “have to use emergency funds” on the border.
Gaetz said, “He’s going to have to use emergency funds at some point to get us out of this, Lou. … And so, we’re going to have to find funds that have been lawfully appropriated for barriers, for security, for national defense, and we’re going to have to use that money along the southern border. Because the Democrats won’t take a win-win.”
This is a controversial decision.
Some Trump supporters believe Democrats will tie the move up in court and Trump will never get the wall built and will have folded in the shutdown by signing a bill that opens the government without any new wall money.
But the Democrats are dug in.
They can filibuster wall funding forever.
Emergency funding may be the President’s only chance to deliver on his signature promise to the American people.
