On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that Democrats believe they should hold firm on the government shutdown and Republicans will start pressuring President Trump to either change his mind or go around him. Schumer said, “I think Trump thought that we Democrats would crack. We’ve been united. You saw today that even those moderate Democrats who were invited to the White House, justifiably, correctly, said no. Because they don’t want to just be window dressing. We’ve seen Trump stomp out of meetings because…

Poll: Majority of Voters Agree with Trump, Call Porous Border a ‘Crisis’

The establishment media and elected Democrats have failed to convince the American public that mass illegal immigration and drug trafficking at the United States-Mexico border is a “manufactured crisis,” a new poll reveals.

In total, 54 percent of Americans agree with President Trump’s assertion that the country’s porous southern border has created a “crisis”…

This time last year, the poll claimed that only 34 percent of voters supported a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border. Today, support for the wall has climbed…

Kaine: Trump’s Border Wall a ‘Vanity Project,’ Waste of Taxpayer Money

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), the vice-presidential running mate for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 presidential bid, said President Donald Trump’s proposal to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border was a “vanity project.” Kaine said, “What we don’t want to do is waste taxpayer money on a vanity project that’s ineffective, that the president said Mexico would pay for. But spending massive amounts on border security to keep us safe, Dems do it over and over again, and it’s been Republicans that have…

Durbin: Shutdown Will End When Trump ‘Realizes He’s Lost the Senate Republicans’

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) said the government shutdown would end when President Donald Trump “realizes he’s lost the Senate Republicans.” On the president declaring a national emergency, Durbin said, “Presidents have been very careful in using that. When George W. Bush faced 9/11 he asked us for national emergency powers, we gave it to him on a bipartisan basis, united as a country to fight off terrorism. But if this president is going to turn to national emergencies every time he disagrees with Congress, I’m against…

Graham Urges Trump to Open Government for Three Weeks to Make a Deal

On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) urged President Trump to open up the government for three weeks so lawmakers can negotiate an end to the ongoing government shutdown. Graham said, “It really does perplex me how you expect this to end when you tell the president of the United States, you can’t get $1 for a wall when in the past Democrats have appropriated billions for the wall. What’s he supposed to do, just give in? He’s not going to give in.” He added, “I would…

Dem Rep. Hill: Democrats Are ‘Consistent’ That We’ll Talk After Shutdown Ends

On Saturday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “America’s News HQ,” Representative Katie Hill (D-CA) stated that Democrats are “all consistent” on a position that they will only discuss border security after the government shutdown ends. Hill began by saying she would support funding for a physical barrier on the border, but that discussions on border security can’t happen until the government shutdown ends. She added that while many people support some sort of physical barrier, everyone has gotten caught up in semantics over a wall, and a 2,000-mile-long concrete…

Dem Rep. Scott Peters: There’s a ‘Humanitarian Crisis’ at the Border Created by Trump

During Friday’s Democratic Weekly Address, Representative Scott Peters (D-CA) stated that President Trump has created a “humanitarian crisis” at the border and that the wall “is never going to get built.” “Hi, I’m Scott Peters and I represent San Diego, California in the United States Congress.
