Donald Trump has officially gone off the deep end and it’s really pissing off a lot of people.
On Thursday, White House budget director Mick Mulvaney said the Trump administration is starting to use negotiations to keep the government open past April 28 if they can somehow force Democrats to provide funding for creating Trump’s ridiculous wall along the U. S-Mexico border. That’s right–Trump will gladly shut down the government if we, not Mexico, don’t pay for his wall.
This request “threatens to undermine weeks of negotiations between Republican leaders and Democrats in Congress to pass a stopgap spending bill to avoid a government shutdown” according to Washington Post. The negotiations so far have excluded talk of the border wall, which Republicans have argued should be taken up later to keep the government up and running.
“We have our list of priorities,” Mulvaney said at an event hosted by the Institute of International Finance. “We want more money for defense. We want to build a border wall. We want more money for immigration enforcement, law enforcement.
Notice the diction here: “We want.”
The White House wants this, the White House wants that–what about what WE, the people, want?
We want a president who sticks to his word. We want a president that follows through on polices and agendas. We want a president that isn’t known as a corrupt conspiracy artist. We want a president who will release his tax returns.
The level of delusion at the White House never fails to amaze Americans. Republicans have been so defeated by their attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare that many of them refuse to even hold town hall meetings. Now, the GOP expects Democrats to support a border wall that according to Trump, is Mexico’s responsibility. What planet are these idiots on? It’s time for Democrats to stand their ground because if the government were to shut down, it would fall on Donald Trump and his inability to properly lead our nation.
