Trump’s ‘compromise’ proposal asking for billions for border wall preemptively shot down by Democrats as ‘wasteful and ineffective’

Published

on

On the 29th day of his government shutdown, President Donald Trump is expected to give a White House address with a new offer to get his wall built.

Trump’s first offer for a concrete border wall was his 2016 campaign slogan that Mexico would pick up the tab. Mexico declined his offer.

Trump’s next offer was for U.S. taxpayers to pay for his concrete border wall. Congress declined his offer.

So Trump offered for U.S. taxpayers to spend billions on a steel slats fence. Congress again declined his offer.

While details of Trump’s new offer have not yet been released, Congress is already rejecting his new offer.

“This is not a compromise as it includes the same wasteful, ineffective $5.7 billion wall demand that shut down the government in the first place,” explained a senior Democratic Party House aide.

“This cannot pass the House or Senate,” the aide added.

A Democratic congressional aide also spoke to Politico.

“Dems were not consulted on this and have rejected similar overtures previously. It’s clearly a Republican-and-Republican negotiation,” the congressional aide said.

Trump’s announcement was scheduled for 3 p.m. eastern, but has been pushed back to 4 p.m.

Trump hit with a brutal and hilarious backlash for hypocritically whining about Dem congresswomen using swear words

Published

on

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump once again took to Twitter to rant about the "Squad" of Democratic congresswomen of color who he previously suggested should leave the country. This time, he complained, among other things, that they use obscene language:

.....shouting of the F...word, among many other terrible things, and the petrified Dems run for the hills. Why isn’t the House voting to rebuke the filthy and hate laced things they have said? Because they are the Radical Left, and the Democrats are afraid to take them on. Sad!
