Nancy Pelosi had no idea how badly she just lost this fight with Donald Trump
Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats just made a massive mistake.
They thought they could force Donald Trump to abandon the border wall.
However Pelosi and her crew just kicked off the New Year by committing this terrible error.
Pelosi is set to become Speaker of the House on January 3.
She – as well as many in the fake news media – think that gives the Democrats the upper hand in the shutdown fight.
Pelosi planned to immediately ram a government funding bill through the House once the Democrats assumed the majority.
They figured this bill would put the heat on the GOP senate to fold and accept a bill that provided no new money for the wall.
But Trump surprised Pelosi again.
One of the President’s closest allies in Congress said the Pelosi plan was dead on arrival.
The Daily Caller reports:
“House Democrats are putting together a plan to end the partial government shutdown, which does not include any additional funding for President Donald Trump’s border wall.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who vehemently opposed the border wall, calling it “immoral, ineffective and expensive,” and her Democratic colleagues reportedly put together legislation that would reopen the government and allocate $1.3 billion to border security, however, none of that would be allowed to go to a border wall.
The Democrats plan to introduce the legislation on the House floor Thursday, when they regain control, according to Fox News.
Republican North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows, chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, previously said he does not believe Trump will agree to the Democrats’ counteroffer of $1.3 billion that could be used for the border wall, stating he does not think the amount is “reasonable.” The government will remain shut down until a compromise can be worked out among the two parties”
Meadows’ comments make it clear that Trump is in this fight for the long haul and he is in it to win.
He’s not trying to put on a show for his base.
The President believes the country needs a border wall and this is the moment where he can deliver on that promise.
