Rush Limbaugh revealed Trump’s secret plan to win the midterm elections

Donald Trump upended Washington, D.C. by threatening to shut down the government to force Congress to fund his border wall.

The President’s tweet left everyone scrambling for an answer as to what he was up to.

Rush Limbaugh revealed the secret and it took everyone by surprise.

Limbaugh stated that Trump knows immigration is the issue that fires up his base.


With the midterm elections rapidly approaching, Trump is looking for ways Republicans can match Democrats enthusiasm to vote this November.

And Trump settled on picking a fight over the wall.

According to his show transcript, Limbaugh revealed:

“This is about immigration and it’s about border security. But it’s about more than that, because it is about maintaining this distinct American greatness, a distinct American culture and not allowing it to be diluted and watered down with the unending flow of millions of people who are not legally in the country. Not becoming citizens, not going through the proper channels. Believe me, this is going to turn people out in November. You’ve heard…

I don’t know whether it’s true, but you’ve heard that the momentum and the energy is all on the Democrat side. “The resistance is revved and they can’t wait! They can’t wait to get rid of Trump — and the first step of getting rid of Trump is gaining control of the House for the Democrats.” They can’t wait to do it. I think there are probably some Republicans that believe that. So this is an effort, I think, on Trump’s part to ratchet up the energy, the turnout over the issue that got him elected.

Because, folks, all Trump has right now is his base. That’s his line of defense. That’s his wall. The people that are gonna vote against Trump — i.e., vote against Republicans — are not gonna be bought off with a little policy offer here or a policy offer there. I mean, this is for all the marbles. Trump needs everybody that voted for him for president showing up and voting Republican again. And he needs even more of that.”



Immigration was the signature issue that propelled Trump into the White House.

And the President is betting that a massive fight in the fall over funding the border wall will energize Republicans in 2018 much in the same way it did in 2016 and help the GOP maintain control of Congress.

Do you agree?

  1. I hope that the President does shutdown the government and then the DEMS will have the blame for not showing up to cast there votes. They better realize that not voting is going to look like they don’t intend to do there job as long as President Trump is in office. Let see just how long they will hold out. In the meantime I hope the vote to confirm the Justice is taken and since this is so close to the Midterms vote they will risk there people being turned off. And if we get lucky the RNC will have enough votes to put the Justice in place. The DEMS vote won’t be needed. It’s a WIN WIN.

    • Isn’t that the truth! Now that the left are fully exposed (thants to Pres. Trump), we cannot allow them to EVER gain control again. We have to fight to the death.

    • Our President is not stupid like the left thinks of him. He knows how to work the room so to speak. He will always have my vote because he delivers on his promises. I also believe his base plus will get out and vote. We know it’s for America’s survival. God Bless our President as well as America.

  2. True enough. In 2016 much of the Democrat base was turned off by Hillary and the DNC bias against Bernie Sanders. In 2018 there will be relative apathy on the part of Republicans while Democrats have been moving from outrage to bogus outrage to keep their base fired up.

  3. We need the wall but remember RINO Republicans are also enemies of a free USA. Always vote for RINO challengers in future primaries,especially if they have a military past.
    I think miltary training would reduce the odds of their being sucked into the swamp.

  4. My wife and her family LEGALY moved to the U.S.A. from Juarez Mexico and received “resident alien” status. when she was 13. She did NOT speak a word of English. I met her at 19 and first thought she was born here because she spoke English like it was her first language.

    She now has a BA and an MBA. She is 48 years old now and pays over $7,500.00 a year in income taxes and $6000.00 a year in property taxes and pays for her own healthcare insurance!

    She wanted to get her citizenship so she could vote Republican!

    So she paid the $900.00 fee. She just went and passed her American history exam at the Federal building. And was sworen in Tuesday July 10, 2018 and is now an American Citizen!

    She and her family came to this country the RIGHT WAY, THE LEGAL WAY! Giving all the illegals amnesty is a slap in her face and the face of every legal immagrant that EVER set foot in the U.S.A. BUILD THE WALL AND DEPORT THE ILLEGALS NOW!

    • Rick we need more people like you folks Merit system contribute to America keep America safe it’s a beautiful wonderful prosperous country. God Bless the USA

    • Rick, I totally respect and gladly accept your wife and her family, for respecting our laws and immigrating the right way.
      Republicans and Conservatives are not xenophobic, racist or anti-Hispanic. We welcome immigrants, but immigrants that come here legally. Every country has a right and duty to protect and enforce their borders. Dems could care less about immigrants, they just want their vote and a wedge issue to use against their political opponents. Some Rhino Republicans aren’t any better. I admire your wife for learning English, US history, obtaining degrees and her assimilation into our culture and country. She and her family did everything legal to become real Americans. Congratulations and thank you!

      • That is why we must keep what we have now so that we never have again what we had in the OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. BLESS THE GOOD OLD ( U.S.A. )

    • AMEN! That’s how we do it. When people do it the right way they appreciate the opportunity and become contributing members of society. That is the only way to MAGA.

    • Agree wholeheartedly. My wife and family also came here legally. That’s the way it should be done. We’ve allowed immigration to get out of control and now we must do it right and lawfully.

    • Very well said Rick. I feel the same way you do about this amnesty BS. You mentioned those who already came here LEGALLY getting slapped in the face but there are also those who are now trying to come here LEGALLY. You made a great point.

    • Congratulations to you Rick and your wife! Your wife is the type of immigrants that president Trump and the Americans want for this country. We embrace and love the hard working, law abiding immigrants who want to come to this country the legal way….not the invading way.

      We, the LEGAL immigrants are very much against the illegal aliens in this country. They cost us $135 billion ANNUALLY. It’s time for we the people to stand up and protect our country against the invasion of the USA!

  5. The cost of the border wall 20 – 25 billion….

    The Cost of Illegal Immigration to the United States. At the federal, state, and local levels, acording to ”F.A.I.R.” Federation for American Immigration Reform, taxpayers shell out approximately $134.9 billion PER YEAR!

    That amounts to EVERY U.S. taxpayer a burden of approximately $8,075 per illegal alien family member and a total of $115,894,597,664. The total cost of illegal immigration to U.S. taxpayers is both staggering and crippling.

    Soon we won’t be able to feed the libtards on welfare because the Government is going broke because of the 10 + trillion Obama added to the debt in his 8 year rain of tyranny! Not counting the 2.8 Trillion ACA!

    If libtards want to keep their “free stuff” they need to decide who is more important, their families or the families of illegal aliens?

    Iran and Libtards LOVE our traitor Obama! After all he gave them “Iran our enemy” 150 billion in cash + another 20 billion in interest! Not a single libtard complained! But President Trump wants 15 – 20 billion for a border wall to protect the sovereignty of our southern border and libtards complain about that WTF? We could have built 8 border walls and still would have had 10 billion left over with that money!

  6. It’s NOT just people from Mexico illegally crossing our southern border. We don’t know who or what they are unless they enter the country via proper Chanels!

    I for one am VERY grateful that President Trump is keeping his promise to keep dangerous countries from sending people to the U.S.A. who HATE us and want to kill us!

    It is NOT a “Muslim ban” by the way! I for one wish it WAS! According to the Pew Research Center in 2010, there were 50 Muslim-majority countries. Around 62% of the world’s Muslims live in the Asia-Pacific region (from Turkey to Indonesia), with over 1 billion adherents.

    The US Supreme Court has upheld a ban by President Donald Trump on travel to the US from seven countries! Only 5 of the 7 are “Muslim countries!” North Korea, Syria, Iran, Yemen, Libya, Somalia and Venezuela.

    3 guesses which of the 4 out of 9 justices voted in opposition of President Trumps travel ban… That right all 4 dissenting justices, Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Master-Bader Ginsburg were appointed by liberal Democrats! Why? Because they don’t give a damn if Americans are killed by Muslims who hate America!

    In the 5-4 opinion written by Chief Justice John Roberts, the court finds that Trump’s travel restriction fell “squarely” within the president’s authority.

    Obama, “Don’t worry about Islamic Muslim immigrants they are all subject to passing vigorous federal background checks!”

    Obama, “Federal background checks simply do not work, therefore we must ban all assault type weapons!”

    Yes, Liberals really are that STUPID!

    Bill Clinton let it happen 9/11/01 All Visas for all 19 9/11/01 Islamic Muslim terrorists were handed out by liberal democrats under the Clinton administration!

    All 19 learned to fly and did not want to learn how to land under the Clinton administration! These Muslims were already in the country when Bush took office!

    The list below is the names of all 19 Islamic Muslim terrorists that murdered 3000 Americans on 9/11/10.. We need to make sure this NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN! How can we do that? Keep voting Republican because DemocRats do NOT care about anything but getting votes NOT about American lives!

  7. Look… all of us sick & tired of illegals running the show, gang thugs committing the most hanious crimes and libtards trying hard to gain voters due to their lack of meaningful message, WERE ALL FOR SHUTTING DOWN THE GOVT IN ORDER TO GET OUR MUCJ NEEDED AND WANTED BORDER WALL.
    Congress only works a handful of days in a year & from what I’ve seen from other govt workers, they’re anti-trump too. It’s tome we do just exactly what our President is calling for.
    Let’s not forget the generous offer Trump made back when DACA was on the table, the DEMS has no desire to help them out & get on board with the Pres.. the issue isn’t DACA, illegal drainers or even the wall – the Dems are desperate for open borders because they lost most of their “reliable” followers by virtue of their own ignorance. #SHUTDOWNTHE GOVT

  8. Havent done this in years but I guarantee you I’m pulling the Republican lever across the board come November. We cant afford any kind of democrat takeover, NO Way.

    • Besides our voting Republican, we must not be shy in letting family and friends know the reasons. Some folks may be undecided and a few good reasons to vote Republican and not Democrat may be all that is needed. Once they’re convinced, ask them to talk to some of their friends and family too. It would be a terrible set-back if Democrats gain seats in either House and a horror if they gain a majority. We must be at least as energetic as the opposition and it would be better if we are even more energetic than them. This is a “fight to save America” from liberal infiltration of every branch of government, from Federal to the most local. It is also a fight to preserve & keep expanding on President Trump’s (AND America’s) victories.

    • Good for you! I truly believe that you will be joined by many others who have previously voted Democrat. There is too much evidence come to light (thanks to Pres. Trump) to ignore. The Democratic leaders have shot themselves in the foot.

  9. Big D knows exactly what he is doing & who he is doing it to. But he only has SIX (6) years and a few days left to get it done😇20 JAN 24 is not that far away😇

  10. Rush is right, every Deplorable must get out and Vote and bring another person with them, our America is on a roll and we are charged with the responsibility to see that it continues. Future generations must live in a Free Country with Freedom of Religion, the Freedom the Constitution guarantees its citizens. And I’m talking Legal Citizens.

  11. Dick crook must be an idiot or hiding under a rock. Trump is turning this country around. Obama said the new norm for gdp was 2. Trump doubled it with more improvement in site. Brought back remains of those in North Korea. Getting good trade deals. Trump doesn’t bow to anyone like the last president who felt compelled to apologize for our country. That man wasn’t American or for America. He was for dismantling our country into something unrecognizable. Read Obamas book dick crook and you will see.

    • I agree but its more than just the immigration issue and the wall, which are very important. Its also about what Trump has done in the last year and a half. He is a hard charger and is doing very well. The democrats are too stupid to see it and are so insane over Hitlery losing that they can’t see straight. Its not that they don’t want to see what Trump has done, they are just too stupid and ignorant. I feel sorry for them because now, their blue wave has turned into a yellow trickle, swirling down the toilet. Remember, the synonym for demorats is collective stupid. WAKE UP MORONS. Go to #walkaway. Give yourselves a chance to be a human being again. Check out what others have to say about the reasons they walked away.

  12. I ABSOLUTELY AGREE with Rush.!!!! We all need to SHOW UP AT THE POLLS in November, & vote REPUBLICAN!!!! WE NEED THAT WALL!!!!!!! And, we need to keep a REPUBLICAN HOUSE & SENATE!!!!!!!

    • VOTE REPUBLICIAN for they are the ones for the people….look up meaning of the word republican.
      democrat is against the people look that one up too.
      What are you for OUR NATION and JUSTICE, or continued corruption from democrats. VOTE REPUBLICIAN

    • We also need to protect against voter fraud. There are MILLIONS of people already in the country that are here illegally. They will vote if given a chance. I. C. E. needs to station people at polling places, to verify questionable individuals citizenship.
      Voter’s registration needs to be cleaned up. Require an original copy of the Certificate of Birth. This can be gotten from pertinent individual states Department of Vital Statistics. For a small fee. Immigrants would need documentation from Immigration. All should present a government photo Identification card. Available at any D. M. V. office.

  13. I think Diane should move to some other country if she can t see that this President is for America and the people . Liberalism is a mental disease. At least leave this sight.

  14. President Trump has exposed the Swamp and now he’s going to show Americans that the Liberals are as phoney as hell. It is my belief that they are complicit in the drug trade with the Cartels!

  15. The TRUMP SUPPORTERS need to be watching every polling place for vote fraud, and NOW would be a great time to make each voter dip their finger in purple ink.

    And why is it illegal for the russians to ‘interfere’ with a US election, but perfectly fine if mueller and friends do it OPENLY and ACTIVELY FLAUNTING THE LAWS?

  16. The President is directing his message to those who need a little push. I agree totally with Rush on this matter. For those of us who know how great this President is, our vote is there because he is a doer backup by his actions.

  17. Sad, if Republicans think its already a Trump Winner President, and so don’t bother to go out and vote. That would be so shameful. So get out there canvassing, and sway the Voters to get out there and VOTE so that the country remains under the Presidency of Mr Trump and the Republicans. You are to be blamed and you suffer the Consequences if you fail. GOD bless AMERICA. Love you all.

  18. It took President Trump to turn over the rock where all the roaches like Mad Max Waters lives. No other president even cared about Americans as much as he does. Surely not the last person. Remember the last guy laughing and saying, “I guess there is no such thing as a shovel ready jobs!” The lowest form of earth Obama is.

  19. If every Deplorable, of which I and my entire family are, would just donate $1, $2, OR even just $5 dollars…………he could build the Wall FAST! I would gladly donate……most of us Deplorables who love him would……and it would not be that much for anyone……………let’s do it……he needs to have a place we can send it…..HHS? or what?

    • I am all in for donating to get the wall built now!!! But somebody that knows what to do must set up a process so we can all send funds now and make sure it is SPECIFICALLY used for the WALL ONLY!!! We have a GREAT president and he truly loves America and respects the citizens of the U.S. He is doing all he can to makes our lives better than ever before. This WALL needs to be a priority!!!

    • I would donate to that fund. Just think of the money we could raise. But, we would need an honest treasurer. If it went straight to President Trump, I would trust that he would put it directly to the building of the wall.

      • I agree that the President is charged with keeping the people in the USA safe and to do that we must have the wall and a good immigration policy. You can not allow the Democrats to run the country. Therefore Mr. President do what ever it takes to build the wall and keep america safe.

      • We all do but this fundraiser would be straight for the wall by pass Congress the good for nothings
        They forget we pay their salaries we the people rule
        Let’s go for it

  20. I LOVE TO READ ALL THE POSITIVE COMMENTS WE DEFINITELY NEED THEM TO KEEP US ALL FOCUSED WHERE WE NEED TO BE IN NOVEMBER WE CAN DO IT BUT WE ONLY WANT THE “TRUE AMERICANS” THEY BELIEVE IN OUR GREAT COUNTRY, BELIEVE IN “GOD” AND BELIEVE IN THE REAL TRUE AMERICANS AND OUR VET /MILITARY THAT HAVE WORKED SO HARD FOR US AND THE ONES WHO HAVE GIVEN THEIR LIVES FOR US. WE MUST DO OUR PART SINCE THEY ARE DOING THEIRS “WE CANNOT LET OUR MILITARY OR COUNTRY DOWN” TRUE AMERICANS LET SWEEP THE POLLS THEY WILL NEVER SEE WHAT HITS THEM IN THE BUTT!!! PRAYERS ARE OUT WE NEED EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE WE CAN GET !!!! IF YOU WANT TO DO A VIGIL I BET WE CAN ARRANGE THAT TOO.

    • The thought of the Democrats regaining any kind of control over anything is just too awful to consider.
      They must be held off, the Country cannot afford their filthy hands on it in any way at all. They are not sincere in their efforts to help, they only want to damage the Country and WE HE PEOPLE must not allow it.

    • WE NEED TO GET RID OF DICTATOR TRUMP AND THE WHOLE TRIBE IN THE WHITE-HOUSE. IF WE DON’T WE THE PEOPLE WON’T HAVE A COUNTRY, ALL HE HAS DONE IS INCREASED THE DEBT THAT IT WILL TAKE THREE GENERATIONS TO DIG OUT OF ALL FOR HIS FRIENDS AND BIG CORPOATIONS.

      • Rich M Crook, Obama put us 11 trillion in national Debt all by himself. He equaled what all other past Presidents combined did. And no, Trump is not adding to that either ! Prove it or shut up. Also, you need to show where all that 11 trillion went to ?? What is worse about that is Obama has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT !!! It all went to total waste !!! REJOICE in your lunacy!

      • Hey Richie, you been listening to CNN too much. The bootlickers will have you believe that the sun shines at night and the moon comes out in the daytime. Why? Just because they know that anybody listening to them is like a piece of play dough that they can squeeze and squish into any shape and size of a brainless, naïve nincompoop that will follow their directives like a good little Zombie caricature. IF you want to give it a good try, you can name 2 ways in which President Trump has increased the debt that will take three generations to ‘dig out of’. If I’m convinced I sent you an apology, but I wouldn’t look forward to any other correspondence since I am 100% sure you will NOT be able to come up with even one debt increase created by President Trump. Oh MY Goodness, I do so love saying that. President Donald J. Trump is and will remain the POTUS through 2020, then overwhelmingly win re-election and finish up in 2024, MAGA !!!

  21. You are so right! Our President Trumpis the only way our country will survive. The biggest corrupt leftist groups are scavenging every diverse & sinful lifestyle they can think of for votes…but there are still many country loving Americans
    & legal immigrants , many Christians that know GOD ALMIGHTY is always in charge.
    As greedy & diverse as ur Great Country has become…This wonderful President wants to remind us of our constitution, & take us back to those beliefs. However he’s such a great businessmen , he’ll bring us up to date financially & cut excess government also. In spite of the constant attracts on him,his family & every move he makes..he continues. Praise GOD. YES ,all republicans have to get out & VOTE for him. The extreme left just lies,lies,lies!

  22. Okay, we are still talking about the wall. Wall. Wall.

    Let start building the wall now. Maybe I go down and apply for this job. I’m sure it pays well. Did you know the story of Nehemiah?

    “ … Book of Nehemiah. In the 20th year of Artaxerxes, king of Persia, (445/444 BC), Nehemiah was cup-bearer to the king. Learning that the remnant of Jews in Judah were in distress and that the walls of Jerusalem were broken down, he asked the king for permission to return and rebuild the city. … “

    By the way, the king granted Nehemiah and the Jews to return to Israel after many years of exile. So they returned, finding the walls around the city already torn down. They started to rebuild the wall but the enemies nearby didn’t like it so they attacked. The Jews came up with an idea that they are to arm themselves while working on the wall. They eventually rebuilt the wall.

    Interesting. Even China had to build the Great Wall to ward off their enemies.

    Our wall serves a purpose. A purpose to defend our national sovereignty. Unfortunately, the Deep State cult have a different agenda rather than standing up to red, white, and blue. Sad.

    As I stated earlier in other article comment section, Merkel from Germany once lamented, “Multiculturalism utterly failed”. Why is that? Look at our country being twisted with many sets of foreign beliefs that do not go in parallel with our constitution, thus creating a new problem: identity politics.

    So therefore, a wall is needed to defend our American spirit. Peace.

  23. You can bet your top roller I will be voteing Republican straight across the board. And you can bet one billion percent I will be voteing for the greatest President Donald Trump the best President to clean the trash out of Washington that have ran Washington in to the ground for the last 60 years. It is about time we had a no holds bard President that takes no S!!! from the left and any body that dos not believe in MAKING AMERICAN GREAT AGEAN should leave this great Country the good old USA and go to a country that they believe in course they don’t love our Country they are TREATERS to our Country.

  24. He is the best President ever. THANK YOU GOD for this GOOD GOOD MAN who literally LOVES this COUNTRY and HE shows it every day,

    • Guess that’s why his and Ivanka’s clothing line (or whatever they sell) are made overseas, because he loves this country so…… his stupid #MAGA hats are made in China. Yep, he shows his love for your country every single day……smh at your ignorance.

      • 90% of everything is made in China dumb ass that why we have such a bad trade deal. Ann you can thank bill Clinton for that

        • Turn off your caps lock. The hats for 2020 are currently being made in China. His rally signs for 2020 are being made in China. The Donald J Trump Collection includes ties, suits, dress shirts, eyeglasses and other accessories. His shirts are being made in China, Bangladesh, Honduras and Vietnam. His suits are made in Mexico. Sport coats are being made in India. Now should I call you a conservative scumbag? No, I won’t. Ill just call you an idiot.

          • I don’t give a tin shit where they are made. As long as we can beat you commie Peter puffers in November. And we will.

          • JESUS YOU KNOW MUCH ABOUT THIS GUY DIANE..I LL TURN OFF MY CAP LOVKS WHEN U SHUT THAT SHIT HOLE UNDER YOUR NOSR

      • Poor Diane,probably most of what you like and wear that you purchase is made in China or some other country. Are you going to stop buying. Seems that you lack good comin sense, and are here to agatate. Our country has done 100% better already with Trump as President. Liberals have a hate driven disease, and when they hear the truth it gets worse, and they breakout with lying hives.

        • Brenda- I wasn’t the one who promised to bring back JOBS to America. I didn’t come up with the stupid slogan #MAGA. (#MAGA = Morons Are Governing America) Did you see any coverage of the Florida rally last night on TV today? Don’t talk to me about hate…..it was quite present at that rally. And 45 encouraged it. Don’t talk to me about lying either. Trump lies on average 7 times a day. The most dishonest, corrupt person to ever sit in the Oval Office. Let me be clear I don’t hate Trump – I despise him.

          • You are now about the tenth responder that I have read which uses the “Trump lies on average 7 times a day” comment. My question is, who are they paying to listen to every comment OUR President makes in every 24 hour period of every day since he WON the election which reveals the exact same number of lies told on each day? I find it inconceivable to believe there is anyone that has so little to do with their time that they would or could accomplish such a feat of being a human lie detector, 24 hours of the day, 7 days of the week. Regardless of what or how the President Trump Haters get their information the actual truth that none can deny is that we are seeing he results of the return of growth, wealth and hope back in the faces of Americans. We are seeing families who had or were on the brink of loosing their home with hope now that they have a job again. So why is it that you and all the other anti-Trump, anti-America naysayers can not just go into your safe space and stay quiet until you get the next chance to elect a different POTUS. Before considering that, you might want to spread your search to include people who actually can think, walk and chew gum at the same time, otherwise you’ll just end up with another Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton.

  25. Right on the money Rush. Fellow Republicans let’s get everyone out to vote for our representatives to win and maintain control in Congress. We need the wall and the votes to get it authorized over the demorats and RINO’s

  26. Barb, you are 100% right. The problem is the thick headed individuals who can only associate payment with someone showing up with a wheel barrow full of money to cover the costs, they never think of the excellent points you bring up. BUILD THE WALL! Tell me about a country that has open borders and no immigration policy? How successful are they?

  27. People whine because POTUS Trump had said Mexico will pay for the wall. They will eventually through tariffs and other ways PLUS we will save Million$$$ on not having to pay welfare for all the illegals (plus jail costs). I believe in the end the price tag of building the wall will be far less than all these illegal expenses.
