- President Trump Vows to Win The Border Wall Battle
Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay says that President Trump needs to remain strong on building The Wall on the US southern border.
“If you go into these sort of fights, you better be ready to fight it until the end – especially if you’re president of the United States,” he said during an appearance on TV Friday.
“If he weakens at all, he’s going to have an awful next two years because the Democrats are going to see that weakness and exploit it.
“Senator Mitch McConnell should fight for the Wall and Border Security as hard as he fought for anything. Later in the morning, not even waiting for a Senate vote, Trump tweeted that “the Democrats now own the shutdown!”
The White House said President Trump would not go to Florida Friday as planned for the Christmas holiday if the government were shutting down.
President Donald Trump made the case for funding for his long-promised border wall, saying he would not sign a government funding bill without the requested money for The Wall.
In remarks at the signing of a farm bill, Trump declared “A nation without border is a nation not at all.”
“I have always thought having been through shutdowns when I was speaker, I don’t think shutting government down on Christmas Eve is particularly big win for anybody,” former Speaker Gingrich said in a TV interview. Wednesday.
“It’s a pain in the neck for hundreds of thousands of families directly affected by it. I do not think the President has given up.”
President Trump has threatened to shut down the government this Friday if $5-B for the border wall is not made available, and Speaker Gingrich said Wednesday the United States faces several problems with people coming into the United States illegally.
“I think for the Democrats to decide they don’t want to protect America is a tough position to take,” said Speaker Gingrich.
According to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R:KY), the Senate plans to take up a short-term measure that would fund the federal government through 8 February, after President Trump backed away from his demand for Wall funds.
Meanwhile, Mr. Gingrich said President Trump is “hardly caving in” if he accepts the financing extension.
“He will come back again and again,” said Mr. Gingrich. “The Democratic party is refusing to protect Americans, and presently, every time somebody who is here illegally kills somebody it is going to show up and the President will say, this is because the Democrats refuse to protect Americans.
“I don’t know that’s a good position for them to look out to 2020, as a party that does not want to protect America”
President Trump ripped Democratic lawmakers on border security again and vowed to win his battle to get a Wall built on the border with Mexico “one way or the other.”
