Nancy Pelosi threatened Donald Trump with something that will leave you up in arms
Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats finally went there.
Speaker Pelosi and her allies took their fight to Donald Trump to a place no one thought they would ever go.
And Nancy Pelosi just threatened Donald Trump with something that will leave you up in arms.
Democrats fumed as the Pentagon recently announced reprogramming $1.5 billion in funds to build Donald Trump’s border wall.
That enraged the left, and they retaliated against the Pentagon in a proposed defense spending bill which would gut the agency’s authority to move money around unless Congress grants them permission.
The Daily Caller reports:
House Democrats introduced legislation that would block the Pentagon from reallocating money to border wall construction, an attempt to undercut President Donald Trump’s trademark campaign goal.
A defense spending bill introduced Tuesday by Democrats on the House Appropriations Committee not only gives the Department of Defense far less money than it requested, but also limits its authority to shift funds within its budget. The legislation comes after Democrats have grown enraged at the Pentagon for diverting funds toward border wall construction without first asking permission from Congress.
“This bill rejects the Trump administration’s budgetary gimmicks and sleights of hand and instead provides the Defense Department with appropriate resources to address an evolving threat landscape and ensure the security of our nation and our allies,” House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita Lowey, a Democrat from New York, said in a prepared statement Tuesday.
If it wasn’t clear before, it should be obvious to all Americans now — Democrats want open borders.
They don’t support any limits on immigration and are willing to go so far as to attack the military’s ability to make spending decisions in order to preserve the open borders status quo.
