Do Two Wrongs Make A Right; Trump vs Pelosi
Well most of us know that the Speaker of the House Democrat Nancy Pelosi asked President Trump to cancel his State of the Union address and move it to a date after the partial government shutdown has ended.
In a letter to President Trump Ms. Pelosi wrote:
Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29.
Many consider that a wrong.
Then yesterday President Trump cancelled the use of a military jet for Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats to take a junket to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan. In a letter to Ms. Pelosi the President wrote:
Dear Madame Speaker,
Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt and Afghanistan has been postponed. We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over, In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay, I am sure you would agree that postponing this public relations event is totally appropriate. I also feel that, during this period, it would be better if you were in Washington negotiating with me and joining the Strong Border Security movement to end the Shutdown. Obviously, if you would like to make your journey by flying commercial, that would certainly be your prerogative.
I look forward to seeing you soon and even more forward to watching our open and dangerous Southern Border finally receive the attention, funding, and security it so desperately deserves!
Donald J. Trump
Some consider that a wrong.
That is for you to decide, but the question I have is; why the Speaker of the House would leave the country for a week during this partial government shutdown thus telling the American citizens and the world that she is not interested in negotiating?
Does she not have enough intelligence to know that the optics of her departure looks very bad for her?
Also I profer this as an example that she knows that the Main Stream Manipulative News would not report or on her absence, in regards to the partial shutdown and her duty to negotiate. I also believe she knows that these “news” sources would not ask every single Democrat about her absence in these troubled times. She also knows that these media opinion networks would not run on a loop 24 hours a day 7 days a week her absence on a junket during the partial government shutdown.
This proves to me that she and the Democrats have no intention of negotiating with President Trump to attempt to end this shutdown and that is sad, very sad and certainly a wrong.
We should call for the two party’s to get together and do what politicians do and that is compromise. Stop these petty squabbles and make a deal. When one side wants to deal and the other does not, the blame must go to the side that does not, sounds reasonable does it not.
President Trump is willing to negotiate and the Democrat Party is not, sounds to me that the entire blame of this shutdown lays at the feet of the Democrat Party leadership.
President Trump wants $5.7 billion for a partial payment of some more barriers on the southern border. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer want the DACA/Dreamers to be given permanent status in the United States.
How is that not a perfect deal right in front of them?
Or does Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and the Democrat Party not really care about the Dreamers and will pass up a chance to give them what they have been telling us for years they want, just to deny anything President Trump wants.
Sounds like swamp dwellers to me.
