We are bringing in the New Year with a continuing stalemate on the government shutdown over the $5.7-M border Wall funding, and our very vocal President striking back at The Wall critics and Democratic resistance to national security, saying “we are going to win at everything we do” as he wished Americans a Happy New Year from the Oval Office.
“I’m fighting for you,” President Trump said in video taken outside the Oval Office and posted to Twitter on Monday night, in which he highlighted the 2 years of his administration’s accomplishments and goals beyond. “We are going to win. We are going to win all the way. We are going to win at everything we do.”
The video was re-Tweeted after 3 Tweets from the President pledged the following:
- Mexico will pay for the Wall
- Democrats will give anything but Wall funding, and
- Walls, like the “old-fashioned” wheel work.
“MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL through the many billions of dollars a year that the USA is saving through the new Trade Deal, the USMCA, that will replace the horrendous NAFTA Trade Deal, which has so badly hurt our Country. Mexico & Canada will also thrive – good for all!”
He followed that Tweet, which answers the begged question about asking for money for a Wall he had promised during the campaign “Mexico will pay for it,” with 2 Tweets preemptively rejecting any Democratic offer short of funding the border wall and criticism a wall is too antiquated to be an appropriate fix for border security.
“The Democrats will probably submit a Bill, being cute as always, which gives everything away but gives NOTHING to Border Security, namely the Wall,” President Trump Tweeted.
“You see, without the Wall there can be no Border Security – the Tech “stuff” is just, by comparison, meaningless bells & whistles…
“…Remember this. Throughout the ages some things NEVER get better and NEVER change. You have Walls and you have Wheels,” President Trump’s Tweets continued. “It was ALWAYS that way and it will ALWAYS be that way! Please explain to the Democrats that there can NEVER be a replacement for a good old fashioned WALL!”
Happy New Year!
