Donald Trump thinks that he is a king of Trumpveria, because he consistently tries to force Congress to bend to his will. Of course, a president is not a dictator – at least not yet. Finally, the Senate and the House have begun to fight back. This should be very interesting.
The man sitting in the Oval Office has single-handedly brought the U.S. government to the brink of a shutdown. What he does not get is the public will blame him and the Republicans.
In his early morning tweet, the president tried to use the program for sick children (CHIP) to manipulate the legislators into keeping the government open. He tweeted:
‘CHIP should be part of a long term (sic) solution, not a 30 Day, or short term (sic), extension!’
The liar-in-chief sent out another threatening tweet, too. He believes that he can set the Democrats as his enemy, when Republicans need them to pass a budget and keep the government open. Then, Trump made an outlandish statement, that the “Dems” do not care about the military. Since when, did that happen?
‘A government shutdown will be devastating to our military….something the Dems care very little about!’
For those who do not know Senate Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-K), this is a video of him being furious with Trump. In his public statement, McConnell said that the Senate leaders would have to wait until Trump decided what he wanted, before they could govern. Check this video out:
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) refused to sit on the sidelines and watch DACA young people be terrorized. He also said that this military suffers as the legislature passed a continuation time after time, allowing none of the government to budget.
