Own the Libs: Trump Posts Video of Top Democrats Supporting Border Security

President Trump completely owned the libs yesterday when he posted a video of top Democrats calling for tougher immigration practices and border security.

In a video posted to Twitter, Trump says “The Democrats are absolute hypocrites. All along they’ve been supporting walls and supporting fences and supporting all sorts of border security.”

The video then cuts to clips of Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama all sounding like Republicans when it comes to border security and immigration.

“Illegal immigration is wrong. Plain and simple,” says Schumer in the video.

Hillary Clinton brags about how she voted for the border wall. “I voted numerous times when I was a senator to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in,” she says.

“We simiply cannot allow people to pour into the united states undetected, undocumented, unchecked,” says Obama.

Trump says Democrats no longer support the wall and border security because they’d rather oppose him.

“The fact is they’ve always supported fences and walls and partitions, but you know what? They only don’t want to do it because of me.”

 

Could there be a Government Shutdown Over Funding for the Border Wall?

White House counselor and former Trump campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, said today that “all options are open” when asked about the president possibly shutting down the government in a dispute over funding for the border wall.

On Fox and Friends, host Steve Doocy said to Conway that it didn’t seem like the president would get funding for the border wall in the upcoming spending bill and asked about the possibility of a government shutdown.

Conway replied, “The president is keeping all options open.  I don’t know if there’s anything he [Trump] has been more explicit or consistent on in the last three and a half years.”

She called on Congress to act, and said that they failed to meet the President’s demands on immigraiton.

The Hill reports,

Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) warned Trump Thursday against initiating a partial government shutdown over wall funding. 

“I said we shouldn’t ever want to shut down the government,” Shelby told reporters when asked about the discussion at the White House.

“I think maybe he agreed, I don’t know,” he said of the president’s response.

Congress has until Dec. 7 to fund the rest of the government after lawmakers failed to approve seven of the 12 individual funding bills before the end of the fiscal year deadline.
