Donald Trump threatens to use the military to build the wall…again

December 19, 2018

  We all saw that meeting, or at least clips of that meeting, last week between Donald Trump, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer where the President not only threatened to shut down the government over the wall but also claimed he would be proud to do so.

  Since that meeting all indications are that Donald Trump is not going to back up that threat and will hope to pass wall funding after the first of the year–good luck with that with the new Congress. This is the second or third time the President has threatened to shut down the government to get wall funding and all three times he blinked. 

  Donald Trump has also threatened twice in the past to use the military to build the wall as a way to fund the wall without getting the approval of the Congress and today he has made this threat for the third time.

  Personally I am getting tired of these idle promises, it is time to either do it or move on. Donald Trump has talked the talk on this issue but he has not walked the walk, but of course he alone is not to blame.

  The Republicans in general also deserve blame, actually most of the blame, because the truth is most of them are not on Donald Trump’s side on this. I honestly believe Donald Trump really wants to build the wall while the establishment Republicans would rather keep it on the table as a political tool. They also talk a good game but they really have no interest in doing anything to curb illegal immigration.

    As the saying goes, he is between a rock and a hard place. If Congress refuses to enact the legislation there is nothing Trump can do. He can attack the GOP for not doing it… what then?
    At this point he does not have the votes. He still needs the Senate, The House passes the bill goes to the Senate and then the reconcilliation as I recall how it works.

    I am with you and totally sick of it, He could shut down the government. Maybe the best idea, but for some reason I think the GOP has told him via Ryan they just won’t include the wall and do it.

    Trump has to be distracted what with all of the charges soon to be forthcoming via various AG’s. Maybe he is just getting burned out.

      The House just passed a bill with funding for the wall and with reconciliation next I don’t see it getting done without a shutdown at this point. The funding is never going to come because as you said, the Republicans don’t want it either.
