President Trump offered to meet with Democrat leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi today in the Oval Office to discuss the ongoing government shutdown and whether or not they would commit to protecting the American people in exchange for ending the government shutdown.
To no one’s surprise, Pelosi and Schumer refused to budge again on funding President Trump’s border wall that will ensure the safety of our beautiful nation.
So President Trump did something that both stunned and infuriated Pelosi and Schumer – he walked out of the office and left them with their jaws hanging open.
“Just left a meeting with Chuck and Nancy, a total waste of time. I asked what is going to happen in 30 days if I quickly open things up, are you going to approve Border Security which includes a Wall or Steel Barrier? Nancy said, NO. I said bye-bye, nothing else works!”
Of course, right after leaving the meeting, Chuck and Nancy held a press conference where they bashed Trump and accused him of not caring about America.
This was too much for Vice President Mike Pence, who has kept a low profile lately. But when he saw these lies being spouted he knew he had to speak up and defend the President.
“At the president’s direction, we incorporated Democrat ideas and language in our proposal to make an offer to solve this impasse and address the crisis at our southern border. Yet today, in this brief meeting, we heard once again that Democratic leaders are unwilling to even negotiate…”
Pence noted that once again, President Trump was willing to negotiate with Democrats in good faith but they refused to budge and give Americans the protection we deserve.
