As America heads in to Day #2 of the Schumer Shutdown, one thing is clear: neither side is showing any signs of budging on their position.
Republicans are accusing Democrats of putting 800,000 illegal immigrants first instead of military families and children, while Democrats accuse Republicans of “failing the American people.” Democrats in the Senate were largely unified in voting against a measure that would have kept the government open without settling the DACA issue.
TRUMP PUTS SCHUMER IN CHECK
And with the current stalemate, President Trump has had enough and is ready to move forward.
This morning, Trump thanked Republicans for “fighting for our Military and Safety” and stated what he thinks the next step should be, to settle the Schumer Shutdown once and for all.
President Trump said:
“Great to see how hard Republicans are fighting for our Military and Safety at the Border. The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked. If stalemate continues, Republicans should go to 51% (Nuclear Option) and vote on real, long term budget, no C.R.’s!”

The nuclear option would be quite the bold move, but really there aren’t a whole lot of options left on the table, as Democrats are determined to appease illegal immigrants more than ever.
Democrats look to continue their obstruction, despite Chuck Schumer’s words he said only a few years back where he thought it would be “wrong” to shut down the government over illegal immigration. You can read more on that HERE.
And Pelosi and other Democrats would rather wine and dine in fancy Italian restaurants instead of striking a deal with Republicans to help military families, while government is shut down. You can read more about that HERE.
How do you feel about Democrats choosing to look out for illegal immigrants before our military families and shutting down our government over it? Comment your thoughts below and please SHARE the news!
