Donald Trump drew a line on building the wall that has Chuck Schumer running scared

Chuck Schumer and the Democrats have done everything in their power to block Donald Trump from building the wall.

They believe if they can thwart Trump on his signature campaign promise, he will be ripe for defeat when he runs for re-election in 2020.

But he turned the tables when he drew this line in the land.

The Democrats failed last time they tried to shut the government down to force amnesty.

With the government funding set to run out on February 8, Trump is daring the Democrats to shut down the government again.


He laid down a marker: Democrats should agree to his deal on America First immigration reforms or the government gets shut down.

That means wall funding, and an end to chain migration and the diversity lottery.

In exchange, Trump is willing to discuss the status of the DACA recipients.

The Washington Times reports:

“President Trump said Tuesday he would welcome another government shutdown unless Democrats agree to major changes to stop illegal immigration.

“I’d love to see a shutdown if we can’t get this stuff taken care of,” the president said at a White House roundtable discussion on MS-13 gang violence and illegal immigration.

Mr. Trump has laid out a four-prong approach to immigration discussions on Capitol Hill, saying he would accept a generous amnesty for 1.8 million illegal immigrant “Dreamers” in exchange for major policy changes including a border wall and more authority to speed deportations.

Democrats want a more generous amnesty of perhaps 3.2 million illegal immigrants, but are resisting his enforcement changes, saying it would punish other immigrants, both legal and illegal.

Little progress is being made in negotiations, with Mr. Trump refusing to agree to a legalization-only bill.

“Then shut it down. We’ll go with another shutdown,” he said.”

Schumer and the Democrats badly miscalculated when they tested Trump at the last government funding deadline.

Are they walking into Trump’s trap for a second time on immigration?



A new Harvard-Harris poll shows nearly 70 percent of Americans support Trump’s position on the DACA deal.

If the Democrats instigate another shut down fight, they are sure to come out the losers in the end.

Do you agree?

  1. REMEMBER, EVEN HEAVEN HAS A GATE AND EXTREME VETTING… EVERY TIME A DEMOCRAT OPENS THEIR MOUTH THEY LOSE MORE VOTES AND THE FURTHER LEFT THEY GO THEY ALSO LOSE MORE VOTES. CAN’T BE TOO MANY VOTERS LEFT AFTER ALL THAT….

  2. we need to start going into all those businesses and start taking them all out and put them in the bus and send them back to Mexico and put those businesses that are hiring these illegals and put them in jail for breaking the law

  3. BUILD THAT WALL!!!
    RESCIND OTHER BUDGET ITEMS.
    BUILD THAT WALL!!!
    SEND DACA TO SUPREME COURT.
    BUILD THAT WALL!!!

  4. President Trump was ready to put 1.800 million Dreamers in as a 12 year chance to citizenship, But the Dems didn’t move on it , now they what 3.8 , NO IF YOU WANT TO BE A CITIZEN OF TUSA COME IN THE Front DOOR , Now if you are born of one American citizen then yes you have citizenship , , And on the WALL , BUILD IT , we have the right to protect our country just like anyone.eles , MAGA2020

  5. We need to control our borders by land, sea and air with strict immigration rules and adequate documentation. We need to fund help to remove persons with expired visas. Our American way of life must not be changed and integration of all immigrants into the American society is desperately needed.

  6. Changing citizenship law will prevent pregnant illegals from sneaking in. At what point will no new daca be granted. How will is know how long each daca has been in US. must be a deadline but how will government know who will illegally enter after daca law signed. This can’t be a constant revolving door

  7. I have read all the posts and find them most interesting. I like to post what I have discovered just by watching TV, read emails of elected officials and what they say, not say and they want to do. I like to address the Dhaka issue. First, I am a legal naturalized American with an education that allowed me to achieve the American Dream.
    Now when I hear that the democrats are so eager to bring to our country individuals with no education and are possible criminals. Are they trying to establish a new under class and turn those people into the century 21 slave category.?…….because they take jobs Americans don’t want to do?. This blows my mind and it makes me sad. In regard to the criminals I thought our prisons are over crowed and we do not need re-enforcement except when those elected officials get their pink slip they have job security waiting to defend those criminals. Just food for thought

    • Jobs that U.S. citizens won’t take for the wages and benefits offered.
      If the illegals were to disappear, those jobs would still have to be done, and the market would demand that those jobs would both pay better and have a better benefits package.

  8. I believe 1.8 is far too generous!
    Over 3 million illegals in pure insanity.
    The Demonrats are truly ridiculous.
    Perhaps the President is correct in his assumption that
    the Dims do NOT want to make a deal.
    It is just a means to an end for the Dims, to get votes.
    President Trump should just let the “program” expire, and
    then deport the dreamers and their families.

  9. Good for Pres. trump. Any and everything the Dems do are bound to be on the sleezy side. The democrats, run by booze and dope haven’t a leg to stand on. Trump is so far ahead of those bozos that they will not know what hit them.
    GO TRUMP!

  10. I support Trump all the way! Build the wall, end DACA, end the lottery and end chain migration, I would also like to see an end to anchor babies and reform to the 15th amendment, extreme vetting for anyone entering our country to become resident. Time to get REAL about the taxpayers responsibility to immigrants. If they want to live here, they MUST support themselves in all manners, no free medical, no free housing, no welfare, no food stamps and no free education. NO OPEN BORDERS!!!!

  11. We can continue to put the perfect logic in print but no one listens anymore. Mitch McConnel and Ryan will put anything on the table behind trumps back. The scumbag democrats have brought in LGBT homosexual thanksgiving and the poorest teaching I’ve ever seen yet what we say doesn’t seem to get any attention. Sanctuary cities? In a state that only wants to support voters? Fence them off too! I could keep going for hours. Why do the idiots like Maxine waters get voted in all the time? How can we stop this BS. Someone somewhere needs to see this for what it is.

  12. MR.KIRSHITENBAUM; I HAVE A FEELING YOU MUST BE NO MORE THAN 6 MONTHS OLD. EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS COST THE USA BILLIONS OF DOLLARS A YEAR. YES, SOME WORK, BUT WHAT ABOUT THE MILLIONS THAT DON’T DO ANYTHING AND SIT ON THEIR ASS AND COLLECT ALL OUR MONEY. THOSE THAT DO WORK, TAKE JOBS AWAY FROM OUR OWN CITIZENS. THEN THIS COSTS US MORE MONEY. I’M NOT SAYING THEY DON’T BELONG HERE, I’M SAYING THERE IS A RIGHT WAY AND A WRONG WAY TO COME INTO THIS COUNTRY. I KNOW THEY ARE LOOKING FOR A BETTER WAY OF LIFE, BUT THERE IS A BETTER WAY OF DOING IT. THE RIGHT WAY NOW IS TO BUILD THAT WALL

    • Howard Howard Howard. Trump is a master negotiator…and a bluffer to boot. DACA is a stand-alone issue but UPchuck barfbag Schumer continues to make it a condition of wall funding, border security, and military support in budget talks. Schumer is America LAST. DACAs with their hands out hand-outs can damn well WAIT! They may have been entitled at one time to our empathy…NO MORE! 🇺🇸AMERICA FIRST🇺🇸!

  13. If Trump actually knew what he really wanted it would be incredible. Truth is, his ‘wall’ changes from week to week. Schumer already is willing to give him funding in exchange for DACA. If he doesn’t keep moving the goalposts, something might actually be done.

    • That was the last offer made.
      Schumer moved the goalposts and thought he could, once again, blame Republicans for a shut-down he and his colleagues were responsible for.
      Trump won’t increase government spending during a shut-down with executive orders to close public parks and scenic highways with armed guards which had never been present before.
      He won’t pitch a temper tantrum and punish the public and businesses to get his way, like obama did.

      • Has anyone come up with the idea of starting a “go fund me” for the wall…..Enough AMERICANS who love this Country would pitch in…..I am a 1st generation American with LEGAL parents, and illegals are getting favoritism going to College…They go free….my granddaughter pays….

    • When did this all happen? ISchumer has never giving Trump the wall but he will be if he wants to stand a chance in the 2018 election.

  14. Deport any alien who is on any type of public assistance, require payment for any public service, school, health care, welfare, EBT card,section 8 housing. If they require aid and cannot pay bill their home country. If they won’t pay deport the ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADER to their home country, with hold costs from aid to that country.

    • They should at least be taken off of any kind of government support unless severe hardship can be proven. They should be required to get a green card – hold a job and pay taxes and be given a path to citizenship – IF they have no criminal record. Those with arrest records should be deported. Also they should NOT be eligible for Social Security benefits that they have never paid in to.

      • I don’t care whether or not “supreme hardship” is shown. Why should we allow the problems of a foreign invader to become our problems? If a “home invader has broken into your home because of “supreme hardship” do you adopt them?

      • MERIT-based! Trump is being WAY more generous than previously thought…1.8 MILLION versus the 690,000 on the books? Like Gen. Kelly said…the BIG DIFFERENCE in the head count comprises those DACAs ‘afraid’ or ‘lazy’. Like food stamps…why WORK and GIVE BACK when it’s handed to you? And DACAs have soaked America ENOUGH ALREADY!

  15. Agreed, plus End ALL public assistance to anyone who is NOT an American citizen AND Only American Citizens have the Right to Vote!

  16. I WANT E-VERIFY ALSO !!!
    ALONG WITH NO BIRTH RIGHT CITIZEN SHIP UNLESS ONE PARENT IS A U.S. CITIZEN !!!! PUT THESE TWO IN THE BILL !!!
