Nancy Pelosi was jumping for joy.
She just ran circles around Paul Ryan in negotiating the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending legislation.
But it was what Pelosi said about Donald Trump that raised eyebrows.
Ryan and Mitch McConnell lied to the President.
They tried to sell him on the fact that the legislation included a $1.6 billion down payment on the border wall.
That was not the case.
The legislation included money for repairs for existing fencing and 30 miles of see through fence.
The bill banned money from being spent on the 30 foot tall concrete prototype Trump recently toured.
Pelosi made that clear when she taunted the President on the House floor.
“Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi taunted Trump during the House debate on the bill on March 22, saying:
He has said in one of his tweets this morning how happy he was because he got the $1.6 billion to start the wall and more to come. That’s not completely true, Mr. President. There’s some resources for fencing and repairs and the rest there. But some of that money is for technology and other ways to protect our borders. We all have a responsibility to protect our borders, north and south, but if you want to think that you’re getting a wall, you just think it and sign the bill.”
Conservatives were up in arms over this legislation.
Led by Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, they GOP establishment betrayed every single campaign promise they made.
The bill expanded the gun owners registration database and reinstituted Barack Obama’s gun bans.
Ryan and McConnell stuffed the bill with $500 million in funding for Planned Parenthood.
And there was no money for the border wall.
GOP voters look at this legislation and wonder why they should turnout in November since the Democrats control Congress as things stand.
