Opinion: President Trump should not trust Democratic leaders on border security
This week, President Trump addressed the nation from the Oval Office for the first time. He talked about the “growing humanitarian and security crisis” at our southern border and about the partial government shutdown.
The president’s address, was authentic, direct, full of facts and grounded in logic and as well as horrible accounts of violence committed by illegal aliens.
Democrats Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi took to the airwaves to issue themselves to issue a response that demonized the president’s demands for border security.
Schumer and Pelosi asked the president to take their word that they would finally come to the negotiating table on border security after the President concedes to their demands.
But why should the president believe two relics of a broken Washington D.C. system when they say that they won’t kick the can down the road any further on securing our border? That’s all that they have done for ages.
The president should stand strong and not give in to Schumer and Pelosi’s political games.
Here’s the bottom line: For Democratic leadership to try and shift blame to the president over this shutdown because of one tenth of one percent of anticipated federal spending in 2019 proves that they hate the president more than they love our country.
Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi – do your jobs, fund the government, and protect our borders.
