Yesterday, President Trump tweeted a message to let every American know the real, unfiltered truth about the government shutdown orchestrated by Senate minority leader, Democrat Chuck Schumer (NY). President Trump included the message. He retweeted that same message again today with a message to the Democrats: “End the Democrats Obstruction”

The message he re-tweeted from yesterday was pretty direct and to the point: “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!”
President Trump wasn’t taking any chances that the media would define the shutdown as the fault of the Republicans.

Shortly after the President’s tweet, Democrats caved on their efforts to put illegal aliens before our military and law enforcement, via a government shutdown. That didn’t stop Democrat operatives like Debbie Wasserman-Schultz from coordinating a completely bogus message to their allies in the media, about how the Republicans were responsible for the shutdown of the government.
When host Brooke Baldwin asked the disgraced former DNC chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) whether Sen. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) “caved” on the deal he made with Republicans in the Senate to end the shutdown, Schultz preferred to rail against President Donald Trump and the GOP.
Democrats largely voted against last week’s spending bill because it didn’t address the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients. The new bill did not either, but Schumer said he got assurances from Republican leadership that an immigration bill would be brought up before Feb. 8.
“We have been dealing with this Trump shutdown because of the complete ineptitude of this president and Republican leadership,” Schultz said. “We are still kicking the can down the road because Republicans won’t come to the table.”
“Congresswoman, I hear you on your frustration with the president, but I’m asking about the leader of your party on the Senate side. Did he cave?” Baldwin asked.
Schultz avoided answering the question.
“You know, every senator has to make their own decision about whether this exclusively Senate deal is something they’re comfortable with,” Schultz replied.
“What one thing can you point out that the Democrats, that Leader Schumer, what one thing did he get from Republicans to justify shutting down the government in the first place?” Baldwin asked.
“The one thing I would say that he did get is the potential for momentum,” Schultz said. “I am certainly hopeful that’s what occurs.” –WFB
That was the last straw for Baldwin…
