Donald Trump has fought traitors within his midst from the moment he won the 2016 election.
Some Republicans still plot in secret to defeat him in 2020.
But this anti-Trump RINO took it to a new level when he committed one of the worst acts of betrayal anyone had ever seen.
The Senate set up competing votes on Thursday to try and end the government shutdown.
One was Trump’s proposal to extend the work permits for DACA recipients for three years in exchange for 5.7 billion dollars in border wall funding.
The other proposal is a Democrat bill from last year that includes a paltry $1.6 billion in border security funding but no wall money.
Colorado “Republican” Cory Gardner announced he would break with the President and vote for the Democrats’ proposal.
The Washington Examiner reports:
GOP Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado is will support the Democrats’ proposal to temporarily fund the government until next month, even though it does not include additional border security funding as President Trump has demanded.
The Senate is poised to vote on Thursday on two measures that would reopen the government: one GOP version that includes $5.7 billion for border wall funding and adjustments to immigration law and another from the Democrats that would fund the government until Feb. 8, giving some time for a more permanent solution to be reached.
A spokesperson for Gardner said that the senator is against government shutdowns and will back both measures — including the Democrats’ stopgap funding measure that would keep border security funding at the current spending levels, the Denver Post reports.
Neither proposal will achieve the 60 votes to advance.
But the side that gets the most votes for their bill will enter negotiations with a stronger hand.
That’s why Trump supporters are furious with Gardner.
He is giving ammunition to the Democrats to claim their bill – with no wall money – is the best chance to break the logjam.
