In conference call with reporters this morning, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi criticized President Trump’s push for funding for a border wall.
That’s a reasonable opinion – except Pelosi backed it up with the type of hateful, divisive rhetoric unfortunately common to Democrats these days.
Donald Trump is “taking food out of the mouths of babies and senior citizens,” she said.
The POTUS is only asking for around 1 billion dollars in border wall funding, to be appropriated from Congress either now or in September.
As a handy comparison, Obama left office with over a 19 trillion debt accumulated. 1 billion dollars is an incredibly tiny fraction of what the Federal government spends in a day.
With a straight face, Pelosi said that Trump’s infinitesimal budget for the wall could damage efforts to preserve clean air, clean water and science research.
