Trump Seeks To Change Narrative With New Border Wall Tweet

Over the past month, Pres. Trump promised he wasn’t going to reopen the government without funds for a border wall to protect the American people.

On Friday, he decided it was time to open the federal government and hope that Democrats fund the border within the next three weeks or he threatened to use the government shutdown tactic once again.

On Saturday, Pres. Trump shifted focus from Friday’s mess to the beginning of a campaign to move the base toward the idea that he was going to make huge changes for the border in the next three weeks.

The video includes comments from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and former President Barack Obama signaling their opposition to a border wall.

It also highlighted Israel’s wall, which Trump frequently invokes as part of his argument for why a barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border is needed.

“This is not safe here,” says a rancher in the video. “The border’s not secure. Bad guys are coming across. They can be vicious.”

The deal signed by Trump on Friday included no money for the wall but temporarily ended the five-week shutdown. The agreement funds the government until Feb. 15, giving Congress three weeks to negotiate a deal to address border security.
