Two Democrat Senators just handed Chuck Schumer the worst news of his life
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is the chief obstructionist to funding President Trump’s wall on the southern border.
Senate Democrats along with some Never-Trump Republicans have pulled every sneaky trick in the books to block the wall.
But two Democrat Senators made an announcement that Chuck Schumer hated.
Democrat Senators Joe Manchin (WV) and Joe Donnelly (IN) are facing tough reelection in states that voted 68-26 and 57-38 respectively for Trump.
They have felt pressure to buck Schumer’s strong-arm tactics so they each announced support for funding the border wall.
Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) office told Breitbart News in an exclusive statement on Wednesday that he supports funding $5 billion for President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall in the fall spending bill.
“Senator Manchin supports President Trump’s $5 billion border wall funding. Senator Manchin has already voted for over $40 billion in border security, to fund the wall and secure our borders,” Jonathan Kott, Sen. Manchin’s communications director, told Breitbart News.
Sen. Manchin’s office told Breitbart News that the West Virginia Democrat also voted for the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) $1.6 billion appropriations bill, which would fund over 65 miles of the border wall.
Sen. Manchin has become the second red-state Democrat to support funding President Trump’s border wall in the September spending bill, following on Sen. Joe Donnelly. Trump has previously threatened to shut down the government before or after the 2018 midterm elections to push Congress to fund his promised border wall.
Democrats won’t admit it, but building a wall on our southern border is a winning issue.
That’s why Donald Trump won the White House in the first place.
Senate Democrats who are up for election are caving because they know they won’t win if they don’t fund Trump’s border wall.
If Senate Republicans unite, Congress may be able to pass the funding needed to finally build the wall that President campaigned on.
