Trump Clashes with Pelosi, Schumer on Border Security

By Alex Pappas, Judson Berger

President Trump clashed Tuesday with Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi with the cameras rolling in the Oval Office, as the president insisted he’s willing to let the government shut down if Congress doesn’t approve funding for his U.S.-Mexico border wall.

“If we don’t have border security, we’ll shut down the government,” Trump said.

The highly anticipated sit-down quickly escalated, in public, as Trump allowed the press to attend the start of it. Trump began by repeatedly telling Pelosi, the House Democratic leader, his party is limited in what it can do because it will take Democratic support to pass anything through the Senate.

Schumer then raised his voice as he claimed the Senate could pass measures to keep the government running regardless.

“If it’s not good [on] border security, I won’t take it,” Trump shot back.

  1. This is one of President Trump’s tweets today:
    “People do not yet realize how much of the Wall, including really effective renovation, has already been built. If the Democrats do not give us the votes to secure our Country, the Military will build the remaining sections of the Wall. They know how important it is!”

    So Trump is saying he’ll possibly use the military to construct the border wall. I’m thrilled! And I feel encouraged that the wall may finally get built.
    OK members, what can we ordinary Americans do to let President Trump know that we want our military to handle construction of the wall? And we want the military to build it NOW. Should we call the White House and leave messages? Should we have a letter-writing campaign? Should we organize sign-waving events, such as on highway overpasses? I feel we need to immediately get President Trump an overwhelming show of support from patriotic Americans. But what would be effective?

    1. Exactly. Trump has repeatedly said if congress plays anti everything and anything for Trump, he’ll use the Army Corps of Engineers. Who better to build and construct such security he has stated. Save us money and no contractor colluding fraud with $1000 hammers.

      It is politically astute to put the ball in congress’ court. If they fail to come up with funds, then it comes out of military budget that Trump can direct.

  2. During much of the whole nickelodeon-drama, Schumer did not
    have the gravitas. The spine. The honor, integrity to look at President Trump while acting the Socialist ass.
    Carrying on in his perfected role as the elite, lofty obstructionist.
    The absolute NY arrogant multi-millionaire.
    Ditch those “looking down your nose at everyone” glasses. It’s not a positive image. It is accurate, however.
