Trump: Fund The Wall Or I Will Shut Gov't Down

WOW!!   Shocked    Pence shifts uncomfortably in his seat as Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi get bitch-slapped by Prez Trump.

Trump delivers the ultimatum in front of the MSM.  There's no way to spin it - the wall will be built, on time, and under budget.



Chucky and Nancy are NOT happy campers.  They want "asylum-seekers" to have easy access to our country.  They see (many of) those migrants as democrat votes. 

That grin on Schumer is for the cameras.   He's about 2 psi away from blowing a gasket!    Grin

Which non-essential parts of the federal leviathan will be "shut down" this time? The Dept. of Agriculture?

Will all the bureaucrats get paid while they are not working? Of course. Then there will be lots of overtime available when the "shut  down" is over, so the whole charade will cost taxpayers money or increase the debt or both.

I don't know, but It should be shut down more often!   Smiley

Say, two weeks out of every month.   This would save boatloads of taxpayer's money and we could see some meaningful Tax cuts!!

It would cost more, but the unionized government employees would love it!

True, at least for the ones that kept their jobs after the inevitable down-sizing and layoffs.

Two groups of Central American migrants marched to the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana with an ultimatum to the Trump administration: either let them in the U.S. or pay them $50,000 each to go home.

The migrants, who arrived in Tijuana one month ago as part of a massive caravan of more than 6,000 people, also demanded an end to deportations.

A second group of roughly 50 migrants delivered a letter to the consulate on Tuesday demanding that US officials allow 300 migrants through the San Ysidro port of entry each day.(which currently allows 100/day)

Trump resolved to repel the invasion:

"Mexico should move the flag-waving Migrants, many of whom are stone-cold criminals, back to their countries of origin. Do it by plane, do it by bus, do it any way you want, but they are NOT coming into the U.S.A.

We will close the border permanently if need be..."


https://www.nationalreview.com/news/members-of-migrant-caravan-demand-50000-each...

If my Guest Visa Plan were implemented, the migrants would be paying US to enter our country. Today, the migrants have turned the caravan movement into a big joke.

Future caravans will be mocked and ridiculed.

What about it lizard? Is the NAP violated if we don't accede to their demands?

Has Ocasio-Cortez weighed in on the issue? That should be enlightening...
