“This Was In No Way A Concession”: Trump Vows To Move Forward On Wall In 21 Days – Deal Or Not

Friday’s agreement between President Trump and Congressional Democrats to reopen the government for three weeks has been celebrated by gloating Democrats, and panned by Trump’s base. The temporary deal will pay roughly 800,000 federal employees who were set to miss their second paychecks on Friday, while negotiations over Trump’s wall will occur over the next 21 days. Federal workers will receive backpay as part of the deal.

Fending off a wave of criticism from the right, Trump defended his decision over Twitter – tweeting that the deal was “taking care of millions of people who were getting badly hurt by the Shutdown,” and that “in 21 days, if no deal is done, it’s off to the races!” – implying that he would declare a national emergency and divert federal funds towards building the wall if an agreement can’t be reached.

On Saturday Trump tweeted: “21 days goes very quickly. Negotiations with Democrats will start immediately. Will not be easy to make a deal, both parties very dug in,” adding “The case for National Security has been greatly enhanced by what has been happening at the Border & through dialogue. We will build the Wall!”

Trump then made the case for why the wall is needed – noting that the United States has turned away two major caravanas “at great expense,” but that a new one with 8,000 people has formed and is heading north. “If we had a powerful Wall, they wouldn’t even try to make the long and dangerous journey. Build the Wall and Crime will Fall!” Trump tweeted.

Perhaps Trump should point out that if civil war breaks out in Venezuela, millions of refugees will also need a place to call home. Perhaps Soros would help out with Caribbean NGO taxis to Florida.

Trump faced intense backlash from his base after “caving” on Friday – perhaps most prominently from conservative pundit Ann Coulter, who savaged the President over Twitter – and then on “Real Time With Bill Maher” Friday night.

“I promise you the country would be run much better if I had a veto over what Donald Trump is doing. It’s crazy that I expect a president to keep the promise he made every day for 18 months,” Coulter told Maher.

Others defended Trump, suggesting that Trump has things under control:

  1. Trump could have done this without shutting down the government so this is one case where I don’t agree with his actions.

    1. Wait for the hammer to fall, President Trump has defeated greater adversaries than Pissloosely and Shitmer could ever hope to be..

    2. Again, more nonsense. Trump did not shut down the Government, the Senate did. If you recall, the last house passed a bill fully funding the 5..7 billion, however the Senate didn’t vote on it until just a few days ago when it failed, because the Senate Democrats and 6 Rino Republicans said they were going to vote against it. Like Trump or not, this falls squarely on the anti Trump faction of Congress.
      Trump could not shut down or open government because there was no bill presented to him to either sign or veto. Note: even after he agreed to re open the government,he had to wait until both houses put together a temporary spending bill or else nothing could have gone forward. This is right in people’s faces and they STILL blame Trump for the shutdown. Amazing.

      1. You are absolutely correct. I guess a lot of people don’t understand how things work in Government or just want to blame Pres. Trump.

    3. 2o days left and the demos will be rioting with each other. President Trump is not stupid. Be patient, he will prevail and demos will start melting.

  2. H should have just fired most of those federal employees, and most of the others that were not furloughed (Payed vacation). Why is Rosenstein not in prison? The water level in the swamp is still rising.

  3. The President is so very well versed in financial back and forth, Antsy Pissloosely and Upchucky Shitmer are about to be flummoxed due to their own ego’s and inadequacies. They think they hold a winning hand, lol, well the self proclaimed “master legislator” and the upchucky have zero chance and are failing though they “think” they hold all the cards. Wait and see a true master business man hand these tools the surprise of their inadequate intellects.

    1. A completely delusional ranting by an obviously deplorable and brainwashed individual….. Your “leader” is a con, everything he has ever touched has turned to shit.. Now… Attempting to Include our Democracy….
      Please seek help…

      1. we will know in 21 days, wont we? Your remark about him opening up the government is ridiculous. Opening up the government to allow the employees to get paid seems to bother you. How else could he have made it possible for them to get paid? The dems sure don’t care about them.

      2. Mike you are an idiot, you want to believe he is a con, check out your paycheck, if you get one, more money there, better deductions, more money being returned, military is stronger than ever, he does not take a cent or spend a cent on vacations, we do not fund his exotic life, he donates to a different charity every month, in order to make these decisions he has to fight tooth and nail for everything he gets because of people like you that have a stupid opinion and cannot admit he is doing a helluva job, no President before him ever made good on campaign promises this quickly into his run, so please don’t put him down unless you know what you are talking about or you can always go to the other side of the wall!

  4. I can’t believe that our President got his ass handed to him by Nasty Pelosi. I keep hearing about all the wonderful things that are going to happen with securing the border, indictments and the criminals going to jail, however, two years later and they are all still walking the streets free as a bird and many still getting paid by us. We’re about to get an Attorney General who is Mueller’s best friend, who defended the snipers at Ruby Ridge. The more things change, the more they stay the same. The swamp just keeps getting deeper and wider. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.

  5. Pelosi has no intentions of doing the will of the people. She wants total control and will throw a temper tantrum every time she doesn’t get it. She even had the audacity to announce there still would be no SOTU even though the government was reopening. She wants t overthrow the government and will not stop her nonsense till she does. She has a major shock coming. The people won’t let her. It will take a civil war before the real Americans let her.

  6. A lot has been done, Military rebuilding, lower taxes, fewer regulations, more jobs, unemployment down, and a conservative judge; all in two years. Much more to be done, regardless of the obstruction by the Democrats.
    Remember the Japs did not attack America, knowing there was an American with a rifle behind every blade of grass; true Patriots will defend America against any and all aggressors.

  7. i think it’s about timing, the caravan in Mexico is grouping and have not started their invasion yet, so when this happens Trump will be able to declare a national emergency.

    1. Only the stupid leftists that don’t understand what is Trump’s plan. The dems said if the government was opened for 21 days they would negotiate. If they go back on their word, which they will, then he’ll get the wall built without them.

  8. Totally agree with Lance, Trump will defeat liberal California’s lame brain Nancy and Liberal new York’s dumbfounded Chucky boy. Americans we must defeat the liberal leftist / socialist democraps on the west and east coasts…

  9. Folks, everybody is forgetting the real reason Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer desperately need to stop that WALL from being built!!! The criminal Democrat Party has lost their blue collar workers, their rural voters, their moderate voters and now their black and Spanish voters to President Trump and they need to have wide open borders with millions of illegal aliens coming in so they can use them as illegal voters to destroy and replace us the legal American voters, with massive voter fraud in the 2020 election!!!They want us to become a conquered people with the illegal aliens ruling us with their votes!!! Is that what you want American people, for that is why Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer want us to vote for our own destruction as American voters , by putting them back in power in the 2020 election!!! Let’s dump the whole Party , period??????

  10. The 3rd time is a charm I guess. I have written this comment going on the 3rd time. But Trump is worth it. I am for Trump and his family. They have taken a bunch of bunk, lies, & threatenings against his family everyday of his Presidential life, which isn’t fair to them. He is trying to do the best job he can, but you know what it says, when someone has to live with criticism all their life? It is not easy anyway to live in this world. I do not know as of right now what power Nancy Pelosi has over the President and what she can do and what she cannot do. But I will find out very soon. American people, Dems and Reps alike, the one thing we need in this situation is PRAYER. It does a great deal of good. Leave Trump alone and LET HIM DO HIS JOB!!!! He wants to do good for the American People. Let him!
