The Un-American Democrat Party To Blame For Government Shutdown.
¨The Un-American Democrat Party is to blame for the Government shutdown. President Trump is doing the job the American people asked him to do. The Government serves the people not the other way around. The new Democrat party is a disgrace to America and is clearly working for dark forces of the New World Order. President Trump needs our prayers as he fights the evil that infests our great country. If you don´t want a border wall to protect our country from the criminal drug cartels and the Illegal aliens taking away funds that U.S. citizens deserve then you are a traitor.¨ Michael Difensore Cantontruth.com and FourHorsemen66.com
Trump to Democrats: I’m waiting at the White House to make wall deal and end shutdown.
| January 12, 2019 10:42 AM
In several tweets Saturday morning, Trump said that he was waiting at the White House for Democrats to make a deal that would both end the government shutdown and allocate money to construct a physical barrier at the southern border.
“Democrats should come back to Washington and work to end the Shutdown, while at the same time ending the horrible humanitarian crisis at our Southern Border,” Trump tweeted. “I am in the White House waiting for you!”
Trump’s remarks were a sudden shift Saturday morning, as the president went from discussing the Russia investigation on the social media service for two hours to demanding Democrats return to Washington, D.C., to continue funding bill negotiations.
Several federal agencies ran out of funding Dec. 21. Trump and congressional Democrats are at an impasse, as they cannot come to an agreement on a bill that would both reopen the government and fund the border wall. This partial government shutdown is now the longest in U.S. history, entering its fourth week Saturday.
Trump has maintained that he would not sign a bill that does not include the $5.7 billion he says is needed for the border wall, and Democrats have said they would not agree to a funding bill that included any money for a physical barrier.
Neither side has shown a willingness to budge. In the Democratic weekly address, Rep. Scott Peters, D-Calif., said the crisis is of the president’s making.
“It’s a crisis when the president threatens to shut down the nation’s legal immigration and asylum process over a border wall that’s really just a campaign issue,” Peters said.
Democrats have said a wall is not on the table, but Peters said there are other options.
“Mr. President, Sen. McConnell, Democrats have laid out for you several border security measures we can all get behind. Let’s re-open the government and and talk about these ideas and quit holding the paychecks of 800,000 federal workers hostage to a wall that is never going to get built.”
In an Oval Office address Tuesday, Trump did not declare a national emergency, but did explain why the situation at the southern border was a humanitarian crisis, citing illegal immigrants bringing drugs, human trafficking practices, and crime into the U.S., issues he cited in his Saturday morning tweet thread.
Trump, who abruptly left a meeting with Democratic leaders on Wednesday, asked them to come back to negotiate.
“Democrats could solve the Shutdown in 15 minutes! Call your Dem Senator or Congresswoman/man. Tell them to get it done! Humanitarian Crisis,” he tweeted.
Initially Trump said that he would be “proud” to shut down the government over national security interests and said he would take full responsibility for the shutdown. Now he blames Democrats and says it is up to them to make a deal that would reopen the government.
