Trump, Pelosi and Schumer bicker over building/funding the wall

Trump wants $5 Billion to build the wall. Pelosi had to put Trump in check at one point, as he tried to throw a little shade over her views. Pelosi and Schumer does not agree with that figure. Trump threatens that if he is does not get that amount, that he will shut down the government. What say you?

Starting around mark 5:37 is where the exchange starts to get heated:

Pelosi, Schumer to meet with Trump, offer $1.3 billion for border as shutdown looms

By Erica Werner
December 10, 2018 at 7:07 PM


President Trump and Vice President Pence, at center, meet with congressional leaders at the White House in December 2017. (Jabin Botsford/The Washington Post)
Democratic leaders plan to offer President Trump $1.3 billion in funding for a border fence when they meet Tuesday at the White House, a bid that falls far short of the $5 billion Trump is demanding to fund a border wall.

Democrats, Republicans and the White House have until Dec. 21 to reach a budget deal if they are to avert a partial government shutdown, but talks are deadlocked over funding for the wall.

As House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) prepare for the Tuesday morning, Democrats and Trump are, if anything, moving further apart.

Schumer had previously suggested Trump accept $1.6 billion in border funding, the funding level included in a Senate bill with bipartisan support. But that $1.6 billion would struggle to pass the House, where Democrats won’t support it because they say it’s too much and Republicans because it’s not enough.

The $1.3 billion would extend current funding levels contained in the spending bill for the Homeland Security Department — which Democrats want to maintain at existing levels if no new deal can be reached.

I love when Schumer told trump that trump got ‘Pinocchios’ told to him when trump tried to pass off false info. He doesn’t care if he shuts down the government and affects Americans. He never talks about the domestic terrorism committed by many American-born citizens, but rather pass off lies to have an excuse to build a wall, to try to prevent more Brown and Black immigrants from having a chance in becoming citizens in this country. He is doing that to appease his white nationalist base. He continues to lie that it’s outsiders committing terrorist acts in America. I can’t wait until he serves jail time once he is out of office.

I wish Pelosi and Schumer would have pressed Trump and made him admit he lied when he said Mexico would pay for it.

Pelosi is OK but Schumer is a wimp IMO.

The Russians built a beautiful wall in Berlin. Everyone loved it! Israel is having tons of fun with the people of Pestine and their wall. China built this huge wall you can see from space! Though it didn’t help, but still beautiful. It must of a fortune.

Can’t wait until this orange turd goes to prison.
President Trump is a disgusting piece of shit.

True. Once again he lied to the American people. I also liked the way Pelosi stood up to Trump when he tried to devalue her opinion.

Because they did not. Apparently the 10 people is just the average number of people refused entry a day at all points - land, sea and air - because they are on a watch list. This would be at customs, at border points, on applications etc. People who are caught sneaking over the border do not fall into these categories, they have already been caught.

It’s interesting how he thinks no one will ever check the info he spews. I guess he already knows his followers will believe anything he says, and take it as fact. He says what they want to hear, even if it’s lies.

He was appeasing a specific part of his base, by having the cameras there, and to make sure he mentioned building the wall, to ensure he gets their support in the next election.

Does it matter? We had no border security for 8 years and Pelosi and Schumer were not going to bring that up because Trump would start to bring up how many were getting in then and now. He did with the statistics on how effective some of the NEW WALL but I wish he did with the numbers.

Buddy, I thought the WALL would not work? GENIUS!

Or, you could look at the real numbers, not the Fox and Breitbart numbers. PAY ATTENTION.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that U.S. authorities had “caught 10 terrorists,” citing it as a reason for why the United States should build a wall on its Mexican border, but four government sources said there was no recent evidence of terrorism suspects being caught along the border.

A senior U.S. counterterrorism official, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue, said: “We do not have evidence of known or suspected foreign terrorist organizations trying to infiltrate the southern U.S. border.”

TRUTH. PAY. ATTENTION.
