Rush Limbaugh railed against PresIDent Trump and the Republican Party for allowing the Democrats to get the upper hand on the funding of the wall. On Tuesday, he told his massive radio audience that he is “not happy” that President Trump and the Republicans who hold a majority in both the House and Senate are allowing the minority Democrats or as Rush calls them, the “losers”, to call the shots by threatening a government shut down.
The Trump administration had proposed $1 billion for the wall in a spending bill, which if passed by Congress and signed into will by Friday, will prevent a government shutdown.
However, Democrats have said they would not vote for a bill that included such funding, and reportedly the White House has backed off of its push for that funding because of it.
Limbaugh warned against caving to Democrats out of fear that Republicans would be blamed for the shutdown and insisted if there were such a cave this go-around, Democrats would use similar tactics against the White House and congressional Republicans in the future.

I’m not happy to have to pass this on. I’m very, very trouble to have to pass this on. And I want to say at the outset that I hope my interpretation is wrong and I hope this is not the case but it looks like from here, right here, right now – it looks like President Trump is caving on his demand for a measly $1 billion from the budget for his wall on the border with Mexico. The Democrats are threatening a government shutdown. It’s the same old, same old and I was hoping that Trump would throw this shutdown thing right back in their face and have everybody realize they’re the ones engineering these shutdowns that nobody would notice anyway unless a big hullaballoo was made about it.
The Democrats seem to have successfully used this stupid silly threat of a government shutdown to get their way. What Trump is saying is if we need to get this done, I’ll delay the spending on the wall until September. And it’s just a measly billion dollars. But the problem here is folks – is one of politics. If this happens – if Trump does, and I use the word ‘cave’ guardedly – Trump I am not sure think he caves on anything. But outward appearances are what they are and the bottom line is if he is willing to withdraw a demand of his for a measly billion dollars, for the wall because the Democrats are threatening a shutdown, then the Democrats will just have learned that this threat works on Trump, too – not just all the other Republicans.
We know of the threat of a government shutdown – once it’s even whispered in the drive-by media, paralyzes the Republican Party. And then they spring into action trying to assure everybody that we’re not going to shut down the government. And whatever the Democrats need – the Democrats, the losers in the last election – whatever they need is what we’re going to do if we have to avoid a government shutdown because the Republicans think the media is going to blame us even though we’re not responsible for it and the country is going to hate us and we can’t afford this. And we can’t afford a government shutdown and not having a shutdown has been the single focus of Republican policy for I don’t know how many years now.
