Trump Exposes Dem Obstruction & What They Stand For: ‘An Open Southern Border & Large Scale Crime That Comes With Such Stupidity!’

President Trump took to Twitter Thursday afternoon with an update on the border wall.

Our transparent President bypassed the mainstream media to get his message directly to the American people.

President Trump took aim at Democratic “obstruction” of his calls for a wall on the southern border, a project he says is “desperately needed” as the partial government shutdown continues.

Trump wrote on Twitter, “The Democrats OBSTRUCTION of the desperately needed Wall, where they almost all recently agreed it should be built, is exceeded only by their OBSTRUCTION of 350 great people wanting & expecting to come into Government after being delayed for more than two years, a U.S. record!”

The government partially shut down on Saturday. Lawmakers were unable to agree on a spending package to keep the government open that would also finance Trump’s campaign promise about the wall.

Trump has said he won’t sign a bill that does not adequately fund the wall, and has demanded $5 billion for it. Democrats have said they are prepared to offer $1.3 billion for border security, not a wall. Neither side has expressed willingness to back down, reported Fox News. (Continued Below)

Earlier Thursday, Trump questioned if Democrats realize that “we desperately need Border Security and a Wall on the Southern Border” and said it was needed to stop “Drugs, Human Trafficking, Gang Members & Criminals from coming into our Country.”

President Trump also said Thursday that a deal for border wall funding in exchange for legal protections for young immigrants fell through because a federal court blocked the Trump administration’s efforts to rescind the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. (Continued Below)

The President wrote on Twitter, “The reason the DACA for Wall deal didn’t get done was that a ridiculous court decision from the 9th Circuit allowed DACA to remain, thereby setting up a Supreme Court case. After ruling, Dems dropped deal – and that’s where we are today, Democrat obstruction of the needed Wall.”

From Washington Examiner:

The Trump administration announced last year it would be rolling back the DACA program and gave Congress until March to enshrine its protections into law.

The White House early this year attempted to tie funding for Trump’s border wall to the DACA program and called for Congress to OK $25 billion for the wall in exchange for a multi-year extension of the Obama-era program.

The deal, however, failed in the Senate.

Trump’s attempted rescission of DACA was swiftly challenged in federal court, and several judges, including those in San Francisco, New York, and Washington, D.C., ruled against the president.

In November, a three-judge panel on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court’s order that blocked the Trump administration from ending DACA.

The Justice Department has asked the Supreme Court to take up the dispute over the legality of its attempted rescission of the Obama-era immigration program.

Further the President wrote, “Border Patrol Agents want the Wall.” Democrat’s say they don’t want the Wall (even though they know it is really needed), and they don’t want ICE. They don’t have much to campaign on, do they? An Open Southern Border and the large scale crime that comes with such stupidity!”

He continued, “There is right now a full scale manhunt going on in California for an illegal immigrant accused of shooting and killing a police officer during a traffic stop. Time to get tough on Border Security. Build the Wall!”

Then, Trump found a tweet from former President Barack Obama in 2011 that has been circling on social media where Obama wrote, “I strongly believe that we should take on, once and for all, the issue of illegal immigration. #SOTU”

The Commander in Chief responded to Obama’s tweet writing, “I totally agree!”

Trump added, “This isn’t about the Wall, everybody knows that a Wall will work perfectly (In Israel the Wall works 99.9%). This is only about the Dems not letting Donald Trump & the Republicans have a win. They may have the 10 Senate votes, but we have the issue, Border Security. 2020!”
