President Trump has rejected any proposals to reopen the government, wanting to resolve the issue of the wall before moving on to other business. The Washington Examiner reports:
President Trump said Monday he rejected a proposal from Sen. Lindsey Graham to temporarily end the ongoing partial government shutdown after many federal workers missed a paycheck Friday.
“That was the suggestion that Lindsey made. But I did reject it, yes. I’m not interested. I want to get it solved. I don’t want to just delay it,” Trump told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House.
Graham, a South Carolina Republican, publicly floated the idea during a Fox News appearance on Sunday. He previously met with Trump on Friday and unsuccessfully urged him to declare a national emergency to build a Mexico border wall without a specific congressional appropriation of funds.
Although Trump initially said he would be “proud” to shut down the government in a bid for border wall funds, he said Monday that Democrats were to blame for the more than three-week shutdown impacting about 800,000 federal workers.
Although President Trump’s popularity is taking a hit, the same can be said for Democrats. Without a wall, Trump would have a hard time winning his base in 2020 – for him, it’s a political life or death choice.
Trump is a real man. Not a career pos like those other politicians. Trump has kept his promises. More than can be said of most of those other scumbags. Trump is keeping his promise not just because it is political suicide or not. He is doing is because he PROMISED. He is keeping that promise.
Thank you President Trump for standing strong for protecting US citizens and upholding US laws!
We need the WALL at our Southern Border. I, also worked for the government , lived thru Shut-Down. If those who are screaming Poor Mouth due to not receiving a pay-check, perhaps they need a course in economics. The reporters alway hunt for those that have a poor story to tell. After all, that is what sells newspapers.
Just stay strong, President Trump, you can beat the old Witch and her cronie
as more red-blooded Americans begin to understand how badly we need a WALL!
God Bless America!
Envision what this country will be like 10, 15 or 20 years from now if we let the power-hungry Democrats have absolute control of the border issue. The influx of illegals will undoubtedly change our culture and the very very fabric of America. It will be the end of our way of life, our values, freedom and pursuit of happiness. Be very scared because it is already happening due to rampant ignorance instigated by the media and liberal universities.
