This afternoon President Trump took his message directly to the American people and shared his plan for border security and ending the government shutdown. It’s clear the President is willing to compromise, has consulted professionals while developing a plan and as always is putting the American people first. If Nancy Pelosi does not take the President’s proposal seriously and give it due consideration – even if that means negotiating parts of the President’s plan – it should become glaringly obvious to the American people that the Democrats only priority is opposing the President.
The Informed Conservative Blog focused more on national politics this week as the federal government shutdown reaches it’s 23rd day. This week we asked what impact the federal government shutdown is having on New Jersey, if there is a mental health crisis in the Democratic party, we discussed the President’s address to the nation and the Democrats lack of credible response, asked you to take action and tell Governor Murphy that you oppose driver licenses for illegal immigrants, asked when Democrats started hating America, where Democrats are while President Trump is working to end the shutdown and reminded you of Elián González.
President Trump addressed the nation last night on border security and the government shutdown. The President called the situation at our southern border a “growing humanitarian and security crisis”, a “A crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul” and said it was a “cycle of human suffering” that he is determined to end. Trump’s message was on point and consistent with what he’s been telling the American people since he began his campaign to become President. We need border security. The President has said repeatedly that he doesn’t want to ban immigration into the U.S. but wants to make sure immigrants come here legally. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer responded minutes after the President concluded his address. Their response reminded me of one of the courtroom scenes in the movie My Cousin Vinny “Everything that guy just said is bulls*it. Thank you”.
