Democrats blinked at high noon today to vote for funding the government until February 8th. The left is furious and calling this the #SchumerCaveIn and #SpinelessSchumer…LOL!

Trump had the upper hand with great messaging to people in America who wanted the truth. He called the Democrats on the carpet here with his brutal honesty about what they were trying to do with the budget bill:
Great to see how hard Republicans are fighting for our Military and Safety at the Border. The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked. If stalemate continues, Republicans should go to 51% (Nuclear Option) and vote on real, long term budget, no C.R.’s!

Brit Hume explains what the Democrats were up to:
Let’s be clear about what the Democrats tried to do here. They wanted to tie DACA to the government funding bill so they could save DACA in exchange for funding govt. instead of later having to agree to a lot of border security measures to protect DACA on a separate bill.

President Trump sees the importance of electing more Senators because we need 60 votes to pass anything in the Senate:
For those asking, the Republicans only have 51 votes in the Senate, and they need 60. That is why we need to win more Republicans in 2018 Election! We can then be even tougher on Crime (and Border), and even better to our Military & Veterans!
