Trump schools Democrats: One way or another border wall ‘will get built’

(National SentinelUltimatum: POTUS Donald Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday to troll Democrats ahead of talks about congressional funding for his proposed border wall, saying as definitively as possible that it will definitely be built.

“The wall will get built,” the president said.

POTUS has demanded $5 billion in initial funding for the wall in the current budget. The Senate has already approved $1.6 billion. The Washington Examiner reported that House leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., will offer POTUS $1.3 billion.

The president has said, however, that he’d be willing to shut down portions of the government unless he gets the funding he asked for.

He also said that if need be, the military would be put in charge of building the wall.

“If the Democrats do not give us the votes to secure our Country,” Trump wrote, “the Military will build the remaining sections of the Wall.”




Congress has until Dec. 21 to reach a deal on spending to avoid a shutdown, and POTUS wants the money included in that deal.

In a series of tweets, the president also noted that sections of the wall that have already been built were extremely effective at rerouting thousands of migrants who traveled recently to the U.S.-Mexico border near Tijuana.

“Despite the large Caravans that WERE forming and heading to our Country, people have not been able to get through our newly built Walls, makeshift Walls & Fences, or Border Patrol Officers & Military. They are now staying in Mexico or going back to their original countries,” he tweeted.

“Our Southern Border is now Secure and will remain that way … People do not yet realize how much of the Wall, including really effective renovation, has already been built,” he wrote.

On Sunday, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said during a televised interview that the president should hold firm on building the wall because it’s the right thing to do.

“If I were the president, I would dig in and not give in on additional wall funding,” Graham, R-S.C., said Sunday on Fox News. “I want the whole $5 billion because the caravan is a game-changer.”

“After the caravan, if you don’t see the need for additional border security, you’re just not paying much attention,” he said. “So Mr. President, dig in, do not give in when it comes to the wall.

He added: “I’d put DACA on the table. If I were the president, I’d say, I want two years of wall funding, and I’ll give legal status to the DACA recipients. That’s a good deal for the country.”

  1. DACA should be handled SEPARATELY and not be intertwined with any deal regarding border wall funding. One should NOT depend upon the other.

    • Democrats already had a DACA deal and they refused it. They preferred the issue for political purposes to an actual solution. The President needs to remind the nation of same.

    • Wrong!. DACA is an essential bargaining chip for border security! If the democrats refuse a DACA / border security compromise, ICE should begin deporting DACA folks immediately.

  2. Wonderful to have a President that will stand toe to toe with these slimy DemocRATs like Nasty Pelosi and Chuckie U. Schumer and expose their hypocrisy.

    Trump will get the wall built, one way or another. Schumer and Pelosi are in for a rough ride, as are the TDS infected snowflakes.

    Babs will make her 5th promise to leave the country, Meathead’s head will explode, Maxine will again screech ” ‘peach ‘im,” and all will be well with the world.
    .

  4. Lindsey Graham is confused. The whole $5 billion won’t get the wall built. The figures keep changing from $15 to $25 billion, Lindsey Graham is confused. I applaud the President’s willingness to use the military to build the wall, the entire wall and then, keep the government shut down until the congress reimburses the military for the entire expenditure.

    No compromise, no private meetings, drop dead, go to hell, pay, or die. The next two years without a budget and a half closed, hobbled government would be a heaven sent to the working people of this country. Strangle the Democrats with their own ideology and talking points. They staked out that position. Now let them hang out to dry with it.

    I love this President, simply love the man. I honor and respect both the man and the office, but if we don’t have a country none of the rest of it matters. Take it directly to the 2020 election. B itch slap them Mr. President and right out of the gate.

  5. Even at $25 billion the wall is a bargain. That $25 billion is a one time expense, the illegal alien invaders that are already in this country cost the taxpayer’s some $134 billion each year in the free benefits and welfare they get from the democRATS and they don’t do a damn thing to deserve it. Without the wall, there well be millions of illegal alien invaders coming into the country every year, eventually that cost could soar to trillions of dollars.

  6. Slap my knee and cackle with joy. With one fell swoop the President has reversed fields and put his adversaries in the box. He’s out of box canyon, boldly escaped and on the offensive once again. And then please do, hold them up for more punishment, Mr. President. Don’t give them a budget until they completely reimburse the military for the entire wall. The longer you hold them up, the more they bleed.

  7. Trump handed Pelosi and Schumer their rear ends to them on a silver platter, on camera in front of the entire nation which upset Pelosi and Schumer to no end. They don’t like there hypocrisy being on display, they had much rather do shady deals in secrete behind close doors.

  8. Be sure to use lots of razor wire all along the wall to stop illegals from pushing their kids under the wall or dropping them over the wall, which has reportedly happened in some sections.

  9. Democoms have no problem spending on anything else. it is a small price when you look at the budget and it is something desperately needed.

  10. Build the wall and start mass deportations of all illegals in the US!

  11. I love how Schumer thinks HE is the President, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

  12. Shumer and Pelosi, hypocrites through and through. All they care about is the Democrat party and NOT the American people. They would eat their young if given a chance. Pathetic human beings.
