Nancy Pelosi was riding high.
The San Francisco liberal is the incoming Speaker of the House.
But she just suffered the most humiliating defeat of her career.
In the famous Oval Office meeting between President Trump, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer, Pelosi mocked Trump to his face.
She claimed Trump did not have the votes in the House of Representatives to fund five billion dollars towards the border wall.
Trump said he could get them at any time, and Pelosi dared Trump to do so.
The President called her bluff and the House passed a bill containing five billion dollars in funding for the border wall.
Trump responded by throwing this victory back in Pelosi’s face.
Soon to be Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, last week live from the Oval Office, that the Republicans didn’t have the votes for Border Security. Today the House Republicans voted and won, 217-185. Nancy does not have to apologize. All I want is GREAT BORDER SECURITY!

Democrats blocked the bill in the Senate because they live in fear of their identity politics obsessed base that considers any border security white supremacy.
That led to the third “Schumer shutdown” of 2018.
Democrats think they can wait out Trump.
But he proved he will not budge unless Democrats deliver the votes to finally secure America’s border by funding a long overdue wall.
