Democrats Threaten Gov’t Shutdown To Block Border Wall

Democrats are threatening to shutter many government agencies on October 1 unless President Donald Trump gives up his popular campaign promise to build the border wall against Mexico, according to Politico.

In response, Trump’s deputies are offering political compromises to Democrats, including a rise in domestic spending, says Politico:

"The White House is pushing a deal on Capitol Hill to head off a government shutdown that would lift strict spending caps long opposed by Democrats in exchange for money for President Donald Trump’s border wall with Mexico, multiple sources said."

Trump’s pending request for an October funding package of $1.6 billion would help build roughly 62 miles of border wall. In May, Democrats — aided by a passive GOP leadership — blocked a 2017 funding package that would have helped quickly build 42 miles of wall.

So the Democrats want to shut down the government because the wall will keep out illegal immigrants and drugs. No one can deny that American citizens are dying because of drugs and illegals.
Whose side are the Democrats on? ? ?

Let the Democrats shut down the government. The only compromise Pres. Trump should make is a totally clean bill with no pork barrel spending would be the only bill he would sign all others will be automatically vetoed.

Government Shutdown by the Democrats???? Is that the "JOKE OF THE DAY"??? I thought they had already shut down since President Trump was put in office. The only thing I have seen them do is go on TV and mouth off. They are a pathetic bunch.

Shut it down! It's never been done, as all the RINO's cave at the thought and give away the economy to the other side every year.

Just DO IT!

Think of the money we'll save off the national debt!
