With the approaching November elections, most GOP candidates are on their best behavior. Which for them means reverting back to their cuck-ish ways of trying to appease our enemies.
President Trump said Sunday that he would consider shutting down the government if Democrats refuse to vote for his immigration proposals, including the wall that we have all been waiting impatiently for from the start of his campaign.
Of course, this statement was met with the perpetual pitching a fit that our President constantly receives when he stands firm on policies that will benefit American citizens.
No one is certain if our President can ever recover from this.
The last tweet brings up a great point. With a majority held in both houses, it would seem strange that the funding hasn't already been passed for the border wall.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in an interview after his most recent meeting with Trump that a government shutdown was not going to happen. He also claimed that the border funding issue was unlikely to be resolved before the midterm elections. A very passive stance for someone who is supposed to be a leader standing up for what we American citizens want to be passed as legislation.
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan also spoke after the meeting they had with the President. He said that "The president’s willing to be patient to make sure that we get what we need so that we can get that done.” He added that money for the wall was “not a question of if, it’s a question of when.”
It would all make sense for these things to be occurring right before the midterm elections. If funding was provided for the wall now, or at any point this year quite frankly, the same people who were energized and rushed to the polls to vote for him would be overflowing with MAGA juices and there would be no chance for the so-called "Blue Wave" to occur.
The establishment Republicans and Democrats are making it abundantly clear that they do not want to risk energizing Trump voters and instead want them demoralized and stagnant.
