Some people on the_donald are saying that Trump is playing 3D chess because next time if the government shuts down then it will be the Democrats' fault. Others are saying that Trump guaranteed the wall will get built because if they don't pass a bill with wall money in 3 weeks, he will declare an emergency. In other words, their dear leader is perfect and MAGA and blah blah, the usual stuff.
Is there a way to for the House to amend the Senate bill and make fund the government past 2/15? Or put in a provision that states the next CR approved by the house must be taken up by the senate for vote?
- "Trump just said if he doesn't get a wall on the 15th he will declare a national emergency. Now, he looks good for opening the government and we get the wall. "
- "So to recap, the Democrats exposed themselves as not giving a damn about DACA. Now they have only 21 days to negotiate wall funding or PDJT will declare a national emergency. "
- "What many are forgetting is that POTUS is that he cares more about Americans than hating on Democrats. Democrats hate Americans and don't care if government employees go unpaid. He saw the bigger picture in the sense that everyday citizens were being hurt and Dems didn't care.
If his one weakness is caring too much about every day Americans, than I can live with that."
Love how POTUS is giving one last chance for them to get their s*** together.
The optic brilliance of this is apparent. Normies everywhere are slowly getting 'it'.
POTUS is giving them the golden bridge to walk over, that he writes about in the art of the deal.
They HAVE to walk across it now.
Ir the consequences will be and will be seen by all and sundry yo be, squarely on them.
Phew! What a masterclass indeed.
it's full tilt spinning, it's a witch hunt, etc.
there is no point going there because all arguments and posts that go against the message that they are pushing get deleted by the mods
twitter is a different beast altogether but it remains to be seen if their words and rage actually translate into continued dropping in polls and overall support
NEW: Richard Ojeda says he is dropping his long-shot presidential bid: "The last thing I want to do is accept money from people who are struggling for a campaign that does not have the ability to compete." - @alivitali
Lindsay Graham is such a moron, saying things like that. Why would you ever want to handicap someone's position like that? I'm sure he will quickly forget about it, but he puts Trump in such a bad position. According to that quote, if Trump signs a bill with wall money, then things are fine. But if he doesn't, then it's game over for his presidency. So you just gave one of your allies a huge amount of downside with very little upside.
“I know he is a professional,” Pelosi said of McConnell. “So it is particularly painful to see him kowtowing to the president of the United States. And I said to him, ‘Do you just want to abolish the Congress or maybe just the United States Senate? Because that is effectively what you’re doing.’”
Asked what McConnell said in response, Pelosi replied: “What does he ever say? Nothing.”
“They save good people from attempting a very dangerous journey from other countries - thousands of miles - because they have a glimmer of hope of coming through. With a wall, they don’t have that hope.”
-The President of the United States.
I hope he declares the national emergency so that door is open to us in two years.
Not that we'll need it until 2022 with 52 Senate seats, no filibuster, the House, and the presidency.
My deal for Trump's wall: We build it, but we get full amnesty for all undocumented immigrants already here and for any future immigrants who find a way to circumvent the wall. Go over it? You're a citizen! Go under it? You're a citizen? Go around it? You're a citizen!
Can you get enough money to fly a budget airline from wherever you are to here? You're a citizen!
Do you have a work visa that you're planning to outstay? You're a citizen!
The GOP will revolt too. I don't care what flowery wankery the RNC just put out about King Trump, the cracks are already showing. Their party is on lifesupport.
Federal employees will walk out if this happens again. Hell, 14,000 IRS employees already ignored the order to come back to work (unpaid) to work tax refunds. People can only take so much fuckery.
I mean, if it were me, I would just be screaming "FUUUUUUUUUUUCK YOOOUUUUU" at the top of my lungs in their faces non-stop until I was escorted away by security, so she's remarkably restrained in her brutality. These worthless fuck-ups deserve every bit of dragging Nancy can give them a thousand times over.
