He certainly takes pride in accepting it.

Trump was elected on a promise to build that wall.

It's part of his mandate.

I think the wall a inefficient way to stop illegal imm8gration but that is what the people elected.

Trump not shutting down the government.

It's you hypocritical democrats trying to block what the people voted for.


I would not exactly call it a mandate when less than 50% of the population even voted for it.. that's quite the stretch

Why did they need to give him anything? Until today he had a Republican majority in both houses.

The new session of Congress hasn't been seated yet and the Dem controlled House has already done more work on getting us a spending bill passed than the GOP controlled House whose watch this shutdown happened on.

It seems to me it was Trump and his party that dropped the ball and failed to do their jobs. That's not surprising though. The GOP spent eight years doing nothing but shooting down everything Obama wanted. They probably just forgot how to do their job.


Why do people pretend its the republicans stoppong this?

Having a majority means nothing. They need 10 democratic votes.

Read that "THEY NEED 10 DEMOCRATIC VOTES"


The problem with your argument is that he could not even get his entire party behind his pet project...

Because disingenuous liberals are the new reality. Can’t win an argument, just leave out the pertinent facts! Oh wait...not so new...

Americans voted Trump in (by a record landslide)...



you will probably get a lot of flack over this statement.

The people voted for Hillary. The electoral college voted for Trump. Also, it wasn't a landslide, and far from a record.
Trump won 304. For comparison, Obama won 332 his last term, and 365 his first.

Err, that's because he has dear. It's all clear in the OP. It's clear to all of us.


What is clear is that you would twist a situation when it suits you. He is not a dictator, like Obama was passing laws by bypassing Congress, he has been asking for such funding and since demonrats and rinos want him out, they keep trying just like you, to blame it all on POTUS Trump.

It's a big drop dontcha think? from $25 billion to $5.7 billion. Reports are now in of his vice president asking for $2.5 billion now... of course Trump drew the line there and denied it.


That's how deals are made, but keep acting dumb yet again "silly."



originally posted by: Southern Guardian
What on Earth are ya on about? When he asks for funding for the wall, he's asking for the full funding. Come on now, you know this silly.


Funding for the wall isn't done in one big chunk. He only asks for funding for that fiscal year, not for the whole funds to completely build the wall... You should know this "silly" before you make a fool of yourself like you did making a false claim...


By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Thursday, July 27, 2017

The House approved $1.6 billion Thursday to fund the first installment of President Trumps border wall, surmounting Democrats’ unanimous opposition and giving the White House a significant though potentially short-lived victory.
...

Perhaps next time you will do some actual research instead of lying to try to push for your political agenda "silly."

He was more than happy to sign off that $1 trillion corporate tax cut but couldn't score a measily few billion for his wall?


Which allowed the economy to recover, but idiots keep claiming "that it was Obama's doing..." Even Obama himself has claimed that the job recovery was because of him, and again, idiots in the left keep believing this lie despite the fact that Obama himself said before "those jobs are not coming back" and Trump would not be able to bring them back...


originally posted by: Southern Guardian
How much in billions did he get for the military?


Perhaps if demonrats and rinos decide not to give more funds for the wall, he could build it through the military.



originally posted by: Southern Guardian
What about that $1 trillion tax cut for the top 10%


Which also gave a tax cut on the majority of regular people...



originally posted by: Southern Guardian
But his wall? Nothing. Nudda.


He actually did receive "$1.6 billion for the first installment for the border wall in 2017..."


originally posted by: Southern Guardian
He's a disaster when it comes to deal making bud. It's clear as day.

Fun times.


Riiight...that's why unemployment has been at record lows, even for minorities... That's why the economy recovered, and he was able to bring jobs back that your messiah Obama claimed would never be brought back... He is so bad at making a deal huh?... lol

And how many of those "votes" did Hillary and Obama obtained "illegally"?...

After all the DNC has been caught red handed using dirty tactics to get votes illegally...

"Maine's secretary of state says that the now-disbanded voting integrity commission launched by the Trump administration uncovered no evidence to support claims of widespread voter fraud." U.S. News and world report

So not that many.
