NYT Journalist Says Govt Shutdown Over Wall Setting Up To Be ‘Major Clash’

During Tuesday night’s 76 minute rally in Phoenix, President Trump threatened to shut down the government if his proposed border wall doesn’t receive congressional funding.

If we have to close down our government, we’re building that wall,” he said.

The next day, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders didn’t back down from this claim.

“Look, I think the President is committed to making sure it happens, and he’s also committed to working with Congress to make sure that we move forward,” said Sanders, adding “And as I think Speaker Ryan said, it’s not necessary, so maybe that means he’s on board with making sure it happens.”

Paul stalls on the wall

Paul Ryan said earlier in the day that he doesn’t think a government shutdown will be necessary, does doesn’t think “most people want to see a government shutdown, ourselves included.” Ryan noted that the House had already passed funding for the wall, but that the narrowly divided Senate would need more time to act.

The fact is though, given the time of year it is and the rest of the appropriations we have to do, we are going to need more time to complete appropriations process particularly in the Senate,” said Ryan, who added that a short-term government funding bill would probably be necessary to keep the government functioning past September.

Democrats reject

Democrat leadership shit bricks, as Nancy Pelosi said “President Trump’s multi-billion dollar border wall boondoggle is strongly opposed by Democrats and many Republicans, adding “Democrats will stand fast against the immoral, ineffective border wall and the rest of Republicans’ unacceptable poison pill riders.”

Meanwhile Chuck Schumer “If the President pursues this path, against the wishes of both Republicans and Democrats, as well as the majority of the American people, he will be heading towards a government shutdown which nobody will like and which won’t accomplish anything.”

Enter Maggie

The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman hinted in a tweet early Wednesday that “Trump is setting up a major clash with his border wall/govt shutdown threat, where WH aides say privately they’re drawing line for base.”

What exactly will this showdown look like? Moreover, Trump never said the shutdown was contingent upon the wall being built – rather, the he would pull the trigger on the wall if the government shuts down. Big difference.

    The DACA issue is coming to a head now too. September 5th, the federal court case moves ahead. Texas leads the fight against DACA because if it fails it will become a democrat stronghold. It’s a national issue though as Texas has a lot of congressional seats and electoral votes which will switch over to the Dems and they will take power in DC indefinitely, which means BLM and SJW are back in control and PC culture wins the country. You cannot elect a conservative president with California and Texas controlled by the Dems- it’s impossible. This is the Alamo and Bunker Hill of our time.

    Cue the fake Trump supporters bleeding out of the ass. I never voted for him. I only voted for him. Because the mangina was sore from getting fucked by the Hillary King Kong dildo. The world is going to end! He says what he means. That is not civil to cucks! The Orange God is real. Deal with it. Cunts.

    The very best way to deal with immigration and be fair to all sides, is to let the courts declare DACA unconstitutional (which it is,) this removes protected status from the Dreamers and ICE can start deportations. Then we can go to the Dems and trade DACA for the RAISE act, e-verify, and the wall, but they are not going to negotiate with us until we actually start deportations. Then with the deal in place we can bring the Dreamers back who want to come back. This really puts the Dems in the woodshed, puts deportation blame on the courts, and forces the Dems to negotiate. Shutting down the government is likely a waste of time. Very few people understand the importance of Demographics outside of Texas and Arizona. demographics sets the future though.

    t.c. I don’t think that the Dems will co-operate on anything. They’ve fallen down a bottomless rabbit-hole of delusion and there is not stopping them. Dems plan is simply: remove Trump, foment a race war and obstruct everything for the duration. They basically want to burn down America.

    Republicans are going to have to do everything on their own and this puts RINOS like McCain, Graham and Hatch in a commanding position.

    Arizona Republican Party and Arizona Governor need to do something about McCain. Surely they can move to replace him on ill health grounds.
