Trump: US "Needs A Good Shutdown In September To Fix This Mess"

With Congress poised this week to approve a deal to fund the government through September, the first major bipartisan legislation of Trump's presidency, after lengthy negotiations (which have appeared to signal numerous 'folds' by President Trump), apparently frustrated by the lack of tryannical powers that a simple majority grants him, President Trump has lashed out this morning at disagreeable Democrats, and in particular Senate Democrats.
The reason for the plan negotiated between the Republicans and Democrats is that we need 60 votes in the Senate which are not there! We....
But Trump has a solution.
either elect more Republican Senators in 2018 or change the rules now to 51%. Our country needs a good "shutdown" in September to fix mess!
As a reminder, the proposed government funding deal does not include funding for Trump’s proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border or include language stripping federal money from so-called sanctuary cities, both of which the White House demanded at the outset of negotiations. In fact, as we reported yesterday, the bill has been seen widely as a victory for Democrats, something which has been panned by the conservative press. While the White House also backed off a threat to withhold ObamaCare subsidy payments to insurance companies, Trump did secure increased military spending in the 2017 budget deal.

According to the Hill, the comments are likely irk top Republican lawmakers, who have been frustrated by Trump’s repeated attempts to intervene in the legislative process. The businessman-turned-president, in turn, has vented frustration with the slow pace of work on Capitol Hill.

When government shutdowns were used in the past, Democrats forced the National Parks to be closed to hurt the people, the Media reported that there were other departments that could have been shut instead of the parks. Pres. Trump should shut down those departments with this! Hurt others instead of the working people trying to see nice places on vaction, shut down the welfare programs!

Funny how the Dems liked 51% when it was surely in their favor. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, it's somehow unacceptable.

I agree with President Trump. The only way we're going to get the RINOs in Congress to get on board with the majority of Americans is to make it hurt. When they are blamed for shutting down the government, we can replace them in the next election with True Conservative Candidates.

RINOs are just as bad as DemonRATS, and maybe worse, since they are soiling the good name of the Republican Party. Throw the bums out!
