Pro-open borders politicians thought they figured out the secret to blocking the border wall.
Stall until the eleventh hour and use an impending government shutdown as an excuse to kick the can down the road.
But President Trump just sent one tweet that put an end to all that.
In March, President Trump signed a $1.3 Trillion Omnibus spending bill, much to the dismay of conservatives.
He was promised by Republican leaders in Congress they would deliver on funding the wall.
But the establishment swamp has all but thrown their hands up to proclaim nothing can be done since Democrats are taking over the House come January.
Trump wasn’t having any of that.
When I begrudgingly signed the Omnibus Bill, I was promised the Wall and Border Security by leadership. Would be done by end of year (NOW). It didn’t happen! We foolishly fight for Border Security for other countries – but not for our beloved U.S.A. Not good!

But Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) fired back.
Schumer called efforts to fund $5 billion to the border wall “futile.”
The impasse exposed a massive failure on the part of Republican leadership – primarily Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell.
They had two years to fund a border wall and they refused to lift a finger.
Would you support a government shut down if Schumer and Pelosi blocked funding for the wall?
