As most Americans have come to expect, the Democrat Party-aligned mainstream media began their coordinated campaign against President Trump and his border wall today. The word of the day appears to be “cracking” or “cracks.” The Republican support for Donald Trump is “cracking.”
Does anyone see a pattern in the headlines of top “news” publications today?
As Trump appeals to nation for wall, cracks show in his GOP support
GOP Support For Trump Is Starting To Crack
Trump threatens yearslong shutdown as GOP support shows signs of cracking
Republicans Standing Behind Trump on Wall, Though Cracks Emerge
Most GOP lawmakers remained firmly behind President Donald Trump’s fight to fund a border wall but that solidarity was beginning to crack among Republicans from competitive states and districts as the impact of the government shutdown spread.
As Trump addressed the nation from the Oval Office and with the partial shutdown in its 18th day, the president’s allies insisted they’ll reject any new attempts by Democrats to pass government funding bills without the $5.7 billion the president is demanding for the wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.
The Bloomberg article goes on to show President Trump has support from Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, and Republican Freedom Caucus Leader Mark Meadows. All three Republican leaders claim the president has strong support from most of the Republicans in Congress.
The Bloomberg article mentions a few Republicans who typically side with Democrats on most major issues, who may not support a vote for funding the border wall. Republicans like Senator Susan Collins of Maine, who besides lending her support to Justice Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, is more likely to align herself with Democrats on most issues (including abortion) than with Republicans. Representative Fred Upton (R-MI), who famously co-sponsored the bill to ban incandescent light bulbs in 2007, and refused to endorse President Trump in his home state of MI, also mentions that he will not support a bill to fund the wall.
These are hardly “cracks” in the Republican Party. These are the typical, anti-Trump Republicans, from blue states, who are not ashamed to admit they’re siding with the Democrat Party, against President Trump, whose only goal is to protect jobs and defend the national security of American citizens.
Of course, the headlines are untrue and are actually designed to create doubt in the minds of Americans who support President Trump’s efforts to secure our southern border. There is one person, however, who isn’t going crack, and that is President Trump. Today, during a press conference in the Oval Office, President Trump stuck it to the anti-Trump media when they expressed their concern over his threat to declare a national emergency to build a wall.
A reporter asked President Trump “What’s your current thinking on a national emergency—Why didn’t you announce it last night?”
Trump responded, “Because I think we might work a deal, and if we don’t I might go that route.” President Trump paused, and looked the reporter in the eye, “I have the absolute right to do national emergency if I want.”
One of the reporters asked President Trump: “What’s your threshold for when you might make…”
President Trump’s answer was brilliant: “Uh…my threshold will be if I can’t make a deal with people that are unreasonable.”
MOMENTS AGO: President Trump says he may still declare a national emergency to build a border wall:
“I have the absolute right if I want. My threshold will be if I can’t make a deal with people that are unreasonable”

Every day, Americans should be thanking God that we have finally found a president who has the spine to stand up for the American people who elected him, even in the face of unwarranted, and hateful attacks by our “media” and their allies in the Democrat Party.
What do you think? Should President Trump declare a national emergency and build the wall if he can’t get Democrat leaders in Washington to support our national security?
