President Trump offered to meet with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer today in the Oval Office to discuss the pending government spending package.
Both Pelosi and Schumer are holding the bill hostage over the funding of the border wall that President Trump promised his constituents would be built.
Trump is requesting $5 billion for the border wall project while the Democrats in Congress are offering just $1.3 billion to protect our border.
During the explosive meeting today Pelosi and Schumer made it clear that they would not fund President Trump’s border wall and did not care if that meant they would shut down the government as a result.
Several times, the meeting devolved into chaos with both Pelosi and Schumer interrupting President Trump to continue telling him that they wouldn’t fund his wall.
That’s when President Trump had it and dropped a bombshell on the whole room.
“If we don’t have border security, we will shut down the government. This country needs border security. The wall is a part of border security. … We are going to get the wall built and we’ve done a lot of wall already.”
This is why we elected President Trump in 2016. Americans showed up to their polling places and told Congress that we want border security and we want a wall.
