Trump: Democrat Shutdown a ‘Nice Present’ for One Year Anniversary as President



President Trump is more than happy to shutdown the government until the Democrats agree to actually work with him. He made several statements on the issue via Twitter. Trump joked about it while expertly pinning the blame for the stalemate on Democrats and pushing for more Republicans to be elected. No one trolls the left like President Trump. “Democrats are far more concerned with Illegal Immigrants than they are with our great Military or Safety at our dangerous Southern Border. They could have easily made a deal but decided to play Shutdown politics instead. #WeNeedMoreRepublicansIn18 in order to power through mess!” Trump tweeted at 6:17 am this morning.

Then, President Trump followed that tweet with a joke concerning the first anniversary of his inauguration. “This is the One Year Anniversary of my Presidency and the Democrats wanted to give me a nice present. #DemocratShutdown,” he tweeted at 6:33 am. You know how the media ran with that one? They said that the President was saying that Democrats ruined his one year anniversary as President. Nice try. That’s not what he said at all. Trump relishes a fight like this and they can’t ruin anything for him.

Trump kept on tweeting and he pointed out that the midterm elections are crucial to the success of the Republican Party. “For those asking, the Republicans only have 51 votes in the Senate, and they need 60. That is why we need to win more Republicans in 2018 Election! We can then be even tougher on Crime (and Border), and even better to our Military & Veterans!” he wrote at 6:44 am, followed by the catchphrase “#AMERICA FIRST!”

I’m sure you have heard by now that the Senate failed to approve a temporary spending bill last night, forcing a government shutdown on the anniversary of President Trump’s inauguration. The President is scheduled to attend a high-dollar fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago on Saturday night to mark his first year as President. White House officials have said Trump won’t leave Washington until a spending bill is passed. The President remains in Washington after most Senate Democrats and a handful of Republicans late Friday night voted down a four-week extension of government funding, prompting a shutdown. Politicians are battling it out right now, but I doubt they will come to an agreement here. Even the leftist media, including the New York Times, the AP and Bloomberg are blaming the Democrats for this shutdown… they own it.

President Trump stated that the Democrats could have easily avoided this, but they demanded DACA or they would shut down the government. They didn’t want or intend to deal at all and that should be obvious to everyone by now. They are holding our military hostage over this and that is unacceptable. Vice President Mike Pence talking to reporters early this morning also attributed the shutdown to the Democrats after stopping in Ireland while en route to the Middle East. “We have soldiers that are headed down range to Kuwait for six months in a critical theater to serve the country, and yet because of Democrats in the Senate, they have anxiety about their pay.” Not cool.

On Friday afternoon, Trump met with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer over cheeseburgers at the White House to discuss a possible deal, but it was ultimately rejected. I am not surprised. Chuck-you Schumer wanted DACA on a silver platter and offered nothing in return. Trump wanted the funding for the wall, the end to chain migration and diversity visas before he would deal on DACA. Schumer figured he could bully Trump. That was a dumb move. As a master negotiator, Trump is always more than willing to walk away from the negotiations table if you mess with him. And he did just that.

In a statement released shortly before midnight Friday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said: “Senate Democrats own the Schumer shutdown.” And they do. Senate Democrats on Friday blocked a stopgap measure that would have extended government funding by four weeks. A major sticking point in the negotiations came from Democrats’ calling for a plan that would extend protections for “DREAMer” immigrants — those who were brought to the US as children and are now living in the country illegally. Illegal aliens cheered as the government shut down and Schumer and the Democrats put illegal aliens ahead of Americans and our military. That pretty much says it all right there.
