Oh yes, all that time spent on watching politicians argue over something. Just think, without all the name calling and finger pointing, where would they be.
Well, maybe they would be coming up with a better solution to a situation than a ‘Government Shutdown’. Last I checked one party throwing a temper tantrum should not hold back our Country.
Yet here we are in the fourth week of the shut down, it’s not the longest ever this has happened. Why though? Because of a wall to protect our countries border, that’s why. Since when did we not want to protect our country. It seems this decision is a no brainer, but the Democratic party seems to think it’s more than that.
Yet, just a few years ago before President Trump, they were on border with securing our borders and building a wall. That’s the thing about politics, some use it to sway popularity instead of looking at the best interest of the country as a whole.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who is a Republican, had some very strong words for Speaker Nancy Pelosi who is a Democrat, over her claim that building a border wall is an immorality, and highly immoral.
Pelosi stated: “The fact is, a wall is an immorality. It’s not who we are as a nation. And this is not a wall between Mexico and the United States that the president is creating, it’s a wall between reality and his constituents, his supporters.”
Pelosi also tried to claim that President Trump was the “master of diversions”, and she claimed that the wall is just a distraction to keep the American people from paying attention to his other budget items.
The Senate majority leader McConnell took to his Twitter and called out Pelosi for condemning a border wall, despite the wall having full Democrat support just a few years ago. Shocking isn’t it.
Is Speaker Pelosi calling sitting Senate Democrats immoral? Many of them voted to invest billions in border security, including physical barriers, over the past few years alone. — Leader McConnell (@senatemajldr) January 14, 2019
Mr. McConnell questioned if Pelosi would want the already standing border fences taken down since she feels they are an “immorality,”. He also noted that support for border walls did “not somehow become a radical right-wing position” overnight.
Enforcing our laws has not become unethical overnight. The physical barriers at the border that Democrats supported yesterday have not somehow become a radical right-wing position today. Border security still matters. American families still deserve safety. — Leader McConnell (@senatemajldr) January 14, 2019
President Trump has requested $5.7 billion to fund a section of the border wall. Pelosi, seemed to just want to slap the President with a humiliating offer of only one dollar. Seems as though she is calling the President childish and immoral, uyet look at how she is behaving herself.
