Trump Storms Out of White House Meeting with Democrats on Shutdown


Quote:
President Trump slammed his hand on a table and stormed out of a White House meeting with congressional leaders on Wednesday after Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California said she would not fund a wall along the southern border, dramatically escalating the confrontation over the government shutdown.
...


Quote:
...Senator Pat Roberts, Republican of Kansas, ...lamented on Wednesday morning that government shutdowns “never work” and turn federal workers into “pawns.” Though Senate Republicans had not reached a point of direct intervention yet, he said, “we’re getting pretty close.”
our president is a two year old

Trump stormed out of the meeting after Pelosi insisted there would be no funding for the wall even after the government was reopened. It's an idiotic position where the President is supposed to surrender to Democrat intransigence. But it's Trump who is acting like a 2 year old.

Trump showed frustration over the Democrats obviously partisan refusal to listen to the facts about the border situation and to enter into negotiations in good faith to find a solution. Instead, it's resist, resist, resist, Trump wants it so it must be opposed even to the point of denying the problem.

The House is ruled by jackasses. The others are elephants.

he is a liar who only plays to his small clutch of supporters.
there is no border crises not of his own manufacturing. there is a health care crises as more republican governors (Id) try to block voter passed legislation to join ACA and expand medicaid. more and more seniors can't pay for their medicine. our infrastructure is crumbling...and this turd wants to pour tax payer money down the drain for a stupid campaign promise that this bill won't even address?

Manufactured Crisis?


tell that to the wife and son of Officer Singh.

For the last three months the MSM has been posting stories of the caravan . Complaints about the Border agents separation of families and overcrowding plight of the incarcerated families at the border. The city of Tijuana Mexico was overrun and every talking head had something to say about it. And then, just like that, it was a story manufactured by President Trump.

The MSM has you on a nose ring lease. With all this jerking you around, one would think your nose a bit sore by now. But still you parrot the incredulous talking points of the day as presented to you by the propaganda. No matter how illegitimate or illogical it is.

BTW, the President did not "slam his hand on the table." That was Chuck Schumer's description amplified by the media. Schumer said he "sorta slammed the table." Others said he tapped it with his fingers and then put his hand on the table to stand up and leave after Pelosi said she would offer no funding for the Border Fence.

This is why Trump would prefer cameras at the meetings. Pelosi and Schumer have, more than once, expressed their desire not to have them.

Unlike in 2006 when Democrats overwhelmingly voted to fund about 700 miles of very specific and strategic barriers to pedestrian and vehicle traffic based upon the advice of experts in border security President Trump doesn't have any experts on border security claiming that building a "wall" in undefined areas along the US-Mexico border is superior to using the same funds for other border security purposes.

The Democrats have promised to address border security when the shutdown is over and that's what the American people want, Donald Trump will not agree to discussing border security after the shutdown is over but instead is demanding a wall that experts on border security don't support as a wise spending measure. Most of Trump's expressed concerns don't even relate to a border wall. Terrorists don't enter the United States by illegally crossing the border and they don't come from Mexico. The Wall doesn't stop terrorists. Drugs enter the United States through US ports of entry in vehicles. The Wall doesn't stop drug smuggling. The recent increase in illegal border crossing are by refugees that tried to enter the US lawfully but where refused the opportunity to apply for asylum and turned away at a port of entry by the Border Patrol at the direction of President Trump.

The two children that died in US custody wouldn't have died if the parent(s) were allowed to apply for asylum and enter the US lawfully at a port of entry in compliance with our laws.

Our detention facilities are over-flowing because Trump will not process asylum claims and allow refugees to enter the US lawfully.

If Trump follows the Refugee Act of 1980 and our current immigration laws there wouldn't be over 5,000 refugees stuck on the Mexican side of the border, creating a humanitarian crisis, while waiting to be allowed to lawfully enter the United State but Trump doesn't follow those laws.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

Salty, I'd like to say you can't possibly be that dumb or misinformed, but I'm not so sure. There is a crisis on the border, and unless President Trump is going to Central America and organizing groups of people intent on crashing our borders it is not his fault. The crisis must be dealt with.

But speaking of pissing off money, the house proposal allocates 20 billion foreign aid over and above the President's budget, and State is funding 10 billion in supplementary aid to Mexico and Central America. The theory being that the 10 billion will be used to improve conditions in the recipient countries and their citizens will no longer want to come here. Sure they won't.

So we've got 20 billion to give to people who don't like us, and we don't have 5 billion to help stop those same people from invading our country and collecting our bennies.

When the President asserted that, “In the last two years, ICE officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal records – including those charged or convicted of 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes and 4,000 violent killings,” he was being the commander in chief defending Americans from danger. The liberal media will do all it can to debunk and undermine this claim. However, every time an illegal immigrant kills or attacks an American, the public will move a step closer to President Trump.....


…...When President Obama’s head of the Border Patrol says the argument Pelosi and Schumer are making is not legitimate and only serves a political point, the Democrats are walking on very thin ground. They could rapidly find themselves in quicksand as the party which is unwilling to protect Americans.
Newt Gingrich

The President was the only adult in the room. When the two leading Democrats are acting like two year old's, holding their breath (and the American people) until they get their candy.

Trump is the first President in a long time, who will stand on principles against politics. He is the first in a longtime to stand on the Constitution. He is the first in a long time who intends to keep his campaign promises.

This scares the hell out of both the Democrats and the GOP.

Right or wrong is a political opinion, not a fact.,,,; He is attempting to protect the American people. And this seems to scare the hell out of the Democratic leadership who would prefer to convince the American people they are necessary and relevant to our prosperity than to properly govern..

Yes he has had experts advise him. Border patrol agents, former AG's with him at news conferences for you to have seen.

And then there is this guy who has been advising him since his campaign.

How can you just lie like that?

current border retention facilities were not set up a for family units. Trump's proposal, that Pelosi and Schumer rejected out of hand, included upgrades of housing for families and increased judges for asylum rulings. I would remind you that at no time during Obama's Presidency, did he advocate to upgrade the border retention facilities , courts and health service capacities.

The two children died because their parents took them on a dangerous 2000 mile journey. One of the parents even refused treatment until it was apparently too late. neither would have been "in custody" were they at home in Honduras or Guatemala where they belonged.
