Before Meeting With Pelosi & Schumer, Trump Reiterates His Wall Back Up Plan If No Deal Is Struck

Tuesday marks a potential turning point in President Trump’s quest for a wall along America’s southern border shared with Mexico.

He is set to meet with soon-to-be House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to negotiate a deal to secure enough funding to build the wall.

Right before the meeting was set to take place, Trump took to Twitter to make his case for a wall with the America and reiterated what he will do if he can’t strike a deal with the obstructionist Democrats on wall funding.

Trump said in his Tuesday morning tweets, “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 continued, “Ice, Border Patrol and our Military have done a FANTASTIC job of securing our Southern Border. A Great Wall would be, however, a far easier & less expensive solution. We have already built large new sections & fully renovated others, making them like new.”

“The Democrats, however, for strictly political reasons and because they have been pulled so far left, do NOT want Border Security,” said Trump in his tweet series. “They want Open Borders for anyone to come in. This brings large scale crime and disease.”

He added, “Our Southern Border is now Secure and will remain that way I look forward to my meeting with Chuck Schumer & Nancy Pelosi. In 2006, Democrats voted for a Wall, and they were right to do so. Today, they no longer want Border Security. They will fight it at all cost, and Nancy must get votes for Speaker.”

And in ending Trump said, “But the Wall will get built People do not yet realize how much of the Wall, including really effective renovation, has already been built. If the Democrats do not give us the votes to secure our Country, the Military will build the remaining sections of the Wall. They know how important it is!”
