President Trump gave an ultimatum Friday — Fund the border wall or the southern border will be shut down entirely and Central American aid will be cut off.
Trump is not playing games anymore and realizes why he was elected as he declared, ’We build a Wall or close the Southern Border.’ From the UK Daily Mail, ‘We build a Wall or close the Southern Border entirely’: Trump demands a wall AND an overhaul of ‘ridiculous immigration laws’ in the U.S. in latest tirade against Democrats.
Trump lashed out against Democrats again on Friday in a series of tweets in which he threatened to close the U.S.-border with Mexico
Incoming chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said shortly after ‘I think he is’ serious
In addition to a wall, he said he wants an immigration overhaul
Tied the dispute to trade as he threatened to toss out existing agreement between the U.S., Canada and Mexico that has been redesigned but not passed
In tweets on Thursday the president harangued Democrats for ‘stupidity’ that he said was driving them to oppose his strategy for fighting illegal immigration
Trump also said most of the federal workers who are out of work because of the partial government shutdown are Democrats
That, he claims, should motivate his adversaries in Congress to negotiate with him over funding for his long-promised border wall
Partial shutdown, which affects workers paid through agencies that administer one-quarter of the federal budget, is entering its seventh day
It will continue until early next week at least and is likely to last into 2019
Gutless Republicans are no longer in charge of the House because they did not do for the American people what they promised and why they were elected. At some point the establishment GOP best come around, or they will be headed home too.
