Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer took a victory lap after Pres. Trump reopened the federal government to 800K employees.
Schumer introduced Rep. Nancy Pelosi as Speaker for the new House of Representatives, but he also decided to spike the football after many felt Trump caved by not getting border security funding but giving in to the Democrats demands.
Schumer and Pelosi both continue to speak about hold discussions on border security but both are still against funding the wall.
“The American people do not like it when you throw a wrench into the lives of government workers over an unrelated political dispute. Working people throughout America empathized with the federal workers and were aghast at what the president was doing to them. Hopefully now the president has learned his lesson,”
“Now, once the president signs the continuing resolution, we in Congress will roll up our sleeves and try to find some agreement on border security,” he continued, adding they are still against using money for a border wall.
“Today the president will sign the bill to reopen the government along the outlines of what we have proposed and hopefully it means a lesson learned for the White House and for many of our Republican colleagues: Shutting down the government over a policy difference is self-defeating.”
“It accomplishes nothing but pain and suffering for the country and incurs an enormous political cost to the party shutting it down.”
I am still quite bewildered by the President’s decision. He should have immediately declared a national emergency and stated he was going to build a wall based on x,y,z. Apparently Trump, after over two years in office, still hasn’t figured out that playing nice with Democrats is always a losing proposition.
I told many of you I am not going to promote any major ideas until I see success anymore. I am tired of being led down the aisle and being left at the altar. Pres. Trump needs to stop threatening so many things and go ahead and complete the action.
I am not so blind I cannot see the obvious errors he has made over the past two years. (He should have called for Paul Ryan to resign the moment the video of him saying he would never support his agenda came out, but instead he just let things go on like normal, and they have done NOTHING).
