Donald Trump has pulled out his best flim-flam this morning to try to convince Americans that he is not to blame for shutting down the government. Yet, people are not buying it, because they are far smarter than POTUS gives them credit for being. His morning tweets reek of deceit about his memorial border wall.
The president erroneously tweeted that the Democrats say “DACA not worth it” and they are away “having fun:”
‘Democrats are saying that DACA is not worth it and don’t want to include in talks. Many Hispanics will be coming over to the Republican side, watch!’
‘The building of the Wall on the Southern Border will bring down the crime rate throughout the entire Country!’
‘I’m in the White House, waiting. The Democrats are everywhere but Washington as people await their pay. They are having fun and not even talking!’
‘The damage done to our Country from a badly broken Border – Drugs, Crime and so much that is bad – is far greater than a Shutdown, which the Dems can easily fix as soon as they come back to Washington!’
‘Thousands of illegal aliens who have committed sexual crimes against children are right now in Texas prisons. Most came through our Southern Border. We can end this easily – We need a Steel Barrier or Wall. Walls Work! John Jones, Texas Department of Public Safety.’
Naturally, Trump was trying to deflect people’s attention from the massive story that the FBI has investigated the president of these United States for working with the Russians. The commander-in-chief has been preparing for a huge special counsel blitz, by hiring 17 new attorneys to served in the White House counsel’s office.
Trying to change the subject, he claimed that the Democrats had flown back home across the country. Trump has flirted with declaring an emergency to get out of his dilemma. Others disagreed with him. President Bill Clinton’s acting solicitor general Walter Dellinger said, according to The Business Insider:
‘There has to be some basis for declaring an emergency when both houses of Congress have concluded. It’s not enough to put a stump speech on paper and file it in court.’
