After months of talks and promises, it turns out that this budget Bill is not going to provide anything toward the long-promised border wall. Many Americans who voted for Donald Trump are seeing this as a betrayal.
President Trump’s key campaign pledges included being a tough negotiator and building the border wall. But even though the Republicans control the House, it seems as though this is entirely their budget. Nothing for the wall, something for planned parenthood. Where is this great negotiator we heard about?
When Republicans are in the majority, and we still can’t get Republican bills through, many are asking what the point in voting Republican is?
As reported in the Daily Caller:
Apparently, Trump’s fine with no wall — and everything else in a bill straight out of George Soros’ dream journal — if only the Democrats hadn’t been so rude as to tell the public about it. When your main complaint is that the other side is gloating too much, maybe you’re not that great a negotiator.
Yeah, sure, it’s only 100 days in, it’s an artificial deadline, the media is dying to say Trump has failed and so on.
Except: Planning for the wall should have begun on Nov. 9, and a spade should have been put into the earth to begin building it the day after Trump’s inauguration. Now, it’s 100 days later, and we still don’t have the whisper of a prospect of a wall.
Moreover, this isn’t one random bill funding Planned Parenthood (which this bill does). This is the budget deal. There won’t be another one like it until next October.
