The government shutdown was quickly ended. But the federal government only has three weeks. Three weeks to settle on a new budget. Or the government will be shut down again.
President Trump and the GOP have made it very clear what they intend to do. They have a plan ready to be put into action. The only thing standing in their way is the left, who refuse to cooperate. In wanting to preserve a policy that protects illegals, they let the government be shut down for three days.
That has already hurt them. You’d think they would have learned their lesson by now.
Nope! Instead, Chuck Schumer is threatening to take away the president’s wall. Now, Trump is no longer playing nice guy. As payback for the idle threat, he’s telling Schumer to kiss his precious DACA good-bye.
President Donald Trump lashed out at Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in a tweet late Tuesday evening, saying there would be no Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) fix if funding for a southern border wall wasn’t provided.
That tweet followed reports that Schumer told the White House his prior offer for border wall funding was off the table.
“Cryin’ Chuck Schumer fully understands, especially after his humiliating defeat, that if there is no wall, there is no DACA,” Trump tweeted.
Cryin’ Chuck Schumer fully understands, especially after his humiliating defeat, that if there is no Wall, there is no DACA. We must have safety and security, together with a strong Military, for our great people!

“The thought was that we could come to an agreement that afternoon, the president would announce his support, and the Senate and the House would get it done and it would be on the president’s desk,” Schumer said Tuesday, according to Politico. “He didn’t do that. So we’re going to have to start on a new basis, and so the wall offer is off the table.”
Sorry Chuck, but you have no legs to stand on. If you let these three weeks pass without a solution, it’s only going to hurt your party. The public will once again see Senate Democrats punishing the military and American citizens, all just to protect illegal aliens. Not a good side to be on.
For all of the left’s grandstanding, they lack even the slightest bit of competence to get things done. The GOP has a plan to put into action. They want to keep the government running. It’s only Democrats who cause shutdowns. They are unwilling to work with Republicans. Democrats are the party of spoiled, entitled babies.
But Trump’s not budging. He promised America a wall and he’s going to get it. The more Schumer and his Democrats resist, the more it will hurt them. Period.
