Trump just got the news he’s been waiting for on the wall
On the campaign trail, there is no issue Trump talked about more than building the border wall.
It is his top issue, and one that Democrats are stopping at nothing to prevent.
And Trump just got the news he’s been waiting for on the wall.
President Trump is making progress on border security.
But one area many of his supporters are disappointed in is Democrats’ attempts to block Trump’s efforts building the wall.
Virtually nothing has been done, despite two years of fighting for it.
That’s because Democrats are refusing to let him get anything done on it, and many Republicans are too cowardly to truly take a stand on this issue.
But in a surprise announcement, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell just announced he will be forcing a vote on fixing the crisis on the border.
The Daily Caller reports:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday he will be forcing a vote in the Senate to see if Democrats have any interest in fixing the humanitarian crisis at the border.
McConnell said he plans on bringing up a deal for a vote next week in order to get Democrats on the record for either blocking or supporting Republicans’ demands to fix the crisis at the border. McConnell says he thinks it is important the American people see who votes against solving the problem for political reasons.
“I’m going to bring it up freestanding next week and see if they really aren’t interested in dealing with this massive humanity that we have to take care of at the border,” McConnell said on Fox & Friends. “What’s the objection? This is not about the wall but about the humanitarian crisis.”
This comes after the Kentucky Republican praised President Donald Trump on Tuesday for threatening to apply tariffs to Mexico after speaking out against the move last week.
It will likely pass in the Senate, but when it moves to the House you can expect Democrats to fight it tooth-and-nail.
But whatever happens, Pelosi’s caucus will show voters where the Democrat Party stands on fixing the border crisis.
Once they do, voters in their districts can decide if they support Democrat views on border security.
