US President Donald Trump was the clear winner in his live TV dustup in front of the press in the Oval Office with Democratic congressional leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
President Trump “pulled the curtains back and let everybody see how the game is played for real,” Jeffery Lord said Wednesday. “And this is 1 of the reasons why he’s sitting there in that Oval Office in the 1st place.”
Mr. Lord emphasized the confrontation shows how “Donald Trump is the new American populism versus the old order, and what you saw was the old order in that Oval Office confronting the President . . . this is an old order here that is crumbling fast, and they are furious that Donald Trump is in their midst.”
Mr. Lord added this was a perfect example of President Trump loving a foil, and “Nancy Pelosi is the best of the best of the best of the foils for the next 2 years. And he is going to have a great time making her the reason no wall is built.”
Mr. Lord stressed “this story is going to move in the next days as we approach the shutdown threat” and President Trump is setting up the Dems to be blamed for whatever happens.
Senator John Kennedy (R:LA) said Wednesday, “I think we’re going to have a shutdown for 2 reasons. Number 1, President Trump does not look to me like he was bluffing or is bluffing, and Number 2, I don’t think Speaker Pelosi is going to agree to anything because she’s worried about her Speakership.”
President Trump said during his meeting with Ms Pelosi and Senators Schumer that he would take ownership of a shutdown if Congress does not come to an agreement over border wall funding. He was not bluffing.
