Good morning fellow Seekers,
This is what a real President looks like. One that sticks up for the country at large and those that voted for him especially. Trying yet again to keep promises made while he campaigned and then was duly voted into office.
Then he turns around and does the unthinkable. He takes blame and shoulders the burden of a possible shut down (partial, 70% has already been funded) if WE don’t get what WE want. Funding for the border wall. I say shut it the hell down until they fund the whole dammed thing.
Here’s more from Carlos Garcia and The Blaze…
They can’t believe what he said during the argument
President Donald Trump stunned House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) in a stunning debate that unfurled before the media on Tuesday from the White House.
The contentious interaction began when the president argued with Pelosi over whether there are enough votes in the House of Representatives for the border wall.
“It doesn’t help for me to take a vote in the House where I will win easily with the Republicans,” said the president.
“You will not win,” interrupted Pelosi.
“It doesn’t help to take that vote because I’m not gonna get the vote of the Senate,” Trump continued, “I need ten senators, that’s the problem.”
“The fact is, you do not have the votes in the House,” interjected Pelosi later in the disagreement.
“Nancy, I do,” he interrupted. “And we need border security!”
Schumer then claimed that Trump has threatened to shut down the government twenty times.
“The last time you shut it down, you got killed,” said the president about past government shutdowns.
During the rhetorical fight, Vice President Mike Pence sat behind the interlocutors in stony silence.
In another skirmish, Pelosi reminded the president that his party lost the House of Representatives, to which Trump retorted that they had lost two seats in the Senate to the Republicans.
“When the president brags that he won North Dakota and Indiana,” smirked Schumer, “he’s in real trouble.”
“I did,” said Trump. “We did win North Dakota and Indiana.”
“I will be the one to shut it down, I won’t blame you for it.”
But the moment that really stunned the Democratic leaders was when they argued over who would be to blame for a government shutdown, and the president said he would take the responsibility.
“You wanna know something?” said the president. “OK, you wanna put that on my, I’ll take it!”
“You know what I’ll say?” he continued. “Yes, if we don’t get what we want, one way or the other, whether it’s through you, through military, through anything you wanna call, I will shut down the government.”
“I am proud to shut down the government for border security, Chuck,” he said pointedly. “Because the people of this country don’t want criminals and people that have lots of problems, and drugs that are pouring into this country.”
“So, I will take the mantle,” he concluded. “I will be the one to shut it down, I won’t blame you for it.”
Here’s video of the entire exchange between Trump and the Democratic leaders:
Pelosi and Schumer addressed the media after the meeting outside the White House.
“This temper tantrum that he seems to throw will not get him his wall, and it’ll hurt a lot of people because it will cause a shutdown,” said Schumer.
“I think we left it in a pretty good place, we left it, we gave him two possibilities,” said Pelosi. “They said they would think about it.”
