Trump just made a big threat that Chuck Schumer won’t want to hear

Democrats haven’t even assumed power and have already created a mess.

Schumer and Pelosi have refused to pass funding for the border wall.

Now, Trump just made a big threat that Chuck Schumer won’t want to hear.

This is Chuck Schumer’s and Nancy Pelosi’s shutdown.

That has been clear from the beginning.

The American people elected President Trump to build a wall along the southern border.

Prototypes have been designed and construction has even begun in small parts of the country.

But Pelosi and Schumer are withholding funding to finish the job.

Now Trump is refusing to sign a bill that doesn’t include funding for the wall.

The Daily Caller reports:

President Donald Trump said the federal government will remain shut down unless there is an agreement on some type of border wall or fence.

“I can’t tell you when the government is going to reopen … [Not until] we have a wall, a fence, whatever they’d like to call it. I’ll call it whatever they want. But it’s all the same thing. It’s a barrier from people pouring into our country,” Trump said when talking to reporters on Christmas Day.

Trump’s comments come as Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Republicans need to “abandon” border wall funding if they want the government to reopen, just less than 24 hours into the partial shutdown. Trump has not budged on the issue, despite Schumer’s comments, adding that it’s a barrier from dangers like drug smuggling.

Trump’s threat is making Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi begin to sweat.

The reality is that Pelosi can’t afford to spend all of her political capital on a government shutdown to stop the wall.

And Chuck Schumer knows he doesn’t have the votes in the Senate to stop it if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell goes with the so-called “nuclear option.”

President Trump has shown no signs of backing down.

    Not to anyone that’s supporting President Trump would she give 5 minutes for. But she forgets she’s not there just for democrats she’s in office for all of us. And to not have the decency to even come out and talk to this hero and see what he has to say. Very sad!!!! Trumps been the best thing to come along in our government in a very long time. With others it’s the government and keeping their jobs. Getting the votes even if it’s by illegal immigrants. That’s how they’re going to try and cheat the 2020 presidential election. Through crockery. Just like some of the Democratic wins in November. There were a lot of fishy things going on. They were giving deception a trial run. Who knows what else. But Trump is there for us. The people. America. That had needed a lot of things to help it be great again and that’s his goal.

    I agree with you. I think they need to reopen government for those workers. But I also think they need to suspend the congresspersons pay for awhile. Either that will cause them to do what’s right or save the money they aren’t getting paid and use their money from the hold out to pay for the wall. Democrats a few years ago were begging to close the borders and make better immigration laws etc. now they’ve changed their tune for spite and votes. Hypocrites.

  3. Mary Buckley says:

    Maybe part of the shut down should include the congresspersons salaries. Maybe that will encourage them to do right. Why should they get paid when others arent. Might hurry them up to do the right thing. Border closure that even they democrats were talking about a few years ago. They’ve changed their tune for votes. Hypocrites

    It’s a sad day when The Best President and the Best Senate Leader have lost a slight few to the House but the GOP has enough to completely obstruct the DEMS from pushing any bills that doesn’t have full 5.7B in it, so what they do puts it as it will fall by the way side. I think as the DEMS prolong the WALL vote the price will go up ever so slightly. Maybe we can get some of Nancy’s so called capital for the WALL.

    Yes, I am certain they do… Obama even has a 10 foot wall around his DC home… Why? WHY? That’s the question to ask here. Why would he need a wall if the country doesn’t need a wall?

  6. Larry says:

    Very good suggestion…

  7. Larry says:

    This is also a very true statement. Pelosi has even refused to talk with the war hero that has raised money for the wall. He even came to Washington to talk with her and she apparently went into hiding rather than face him directly. Not only is he a war hero, but he lost both legs and one of his arms fighting for this country. One would think that she would have at least had the courtesy to talk with him and offer him the ‘dollar’ she so graciously agreed to pay towards the wall… She is after all, a public servant!

  8. Larry says:

    This is very true. I for one, fully support the President, and am on furlough. The govt. should keep the borders closed until funding for a wall is built, period but the govt. should not be shut down. This is a diservice dto the American people and the Fed. employees that are not being paid.
