Democrats are standing firm on their commitment to make America less safe, by refusing to give President Trump the funding he’s requested to construct a wall on our southern border. Democrat lawmakers, like Nancy Pelosi, were quick to blame President Trump for the partial shutdown of the government. They warned about how government employees and members of our US military would suffer the consequences.
Unlike the Democrat lawmakers, President Trump canceled his trip to Florida for Christmas, choosing instead, to visit our troops overseas and to stay back at the White House, making himself available in case the Democrats want to come back to D.C. and agree to fund the wall.
On Christmas Eve, President Trump tweeted:
“I am all alone (poor me) in the White House waiting for the Democrats to come back and make a deal on desperately needed Border Security. At some point the Democrats not wanting to make a deal will cost our Country more money than the Border Wall we are all talking about. Crazy!”
First lady Melania Trump and son Barron returned to the White House so the family could spend Christmas together.
Meanwhile, far away at a 5-star resort in Hawaii, the last thing on Nancy Pelosi’s mind is a government shutdown, as she enjoys the lifestyle of the rich and famous. Unlike President Trump, the future Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s not about to let a government shutdown get in the way of her fun.
Pelosi, who has put blame squarely on President Donald Trump for the current government shutdown, was spotted Thursday vacationing in Hawaii at the Fairmont Orchid resort, where room accommodations range from $899-a-night for a standard room to $4,899-a-night for the presidential suite.
The resort, on Hawaii’s Big Island, features a golf course, six restaurants, and a 10,000-square-foot oceanfront pool. It also features a “Spa Without Walls,” where the 110-minute Ali’i Royal Experience is available for $369 and a 50-minute couples massage runs $549, according to the spa menu. While at the spa, guests can snack on a gluten-free grilled prawn summer roll for $19.
Daily Caller reports- The House passed a stopgap funding bill on Dec. 20 that included $5.7 billion to construct a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, however, with a 51-seat majority, Republicans fell short of the necessary 60 votes needed to send it to President Donald Trump’s desk for signature. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer vowed to kill the legislation on arrival in the Senate, and consequently, a government shutdown has been in effect since funding expired Dec. 21.
Pelosi and Schumer issued a joint statement on Christmas Eve accusing Trump of “plunging the country into chaos,” and holding the president solely responsible for the shutdown.
The Democratic leaders pledged not to appropriate a single dollar towards funding a wall, and Pelosi further promised to put forth a funding bill that does not include any of Trump’s demands when she assumes the speakership in January.
They may not be willing to fund a wall to keep the “bad hombres” out, but just ask the Democrat lawmakers if they support sanctuary cities to help protect illegal aliens living in America, and you’ll get a resounding, “yes.”
