Just when you think that the Democrats could not possibly be any more brazen than they are, they surprise you with flaunting wealth and privilege in your face while others are suffering needlessly. President Trump did not leave DC for Christmas this year – instead, he chose to stay and work on the border wall issue.
He put national security and the American people above his personal interests. This lays bare the lie that Nany Pelosi put forth that Trump only wanted the government shutdown so he could golf more at his Florida resort.
Meanwhile, Pelosi is in Hawaii, partying with the rich and powerful. Trump didn’t even have to go out of his way to make Pelosi pay on this one – she did it herself and frankly doesn’t care what Americans think of her arrogant actions.
I’ll take a true leader like President Trump who will give us his time to help all of us as opposed to Marxists who steal our money and then party with it at luxury resorts like the five-star resort in Hawaii where Pelosi is lounging.
It’s disgusting in the extreme and should make every American’s blood boil. She’s staying at the Fairmont Orchid resort on Hawaii’s Big Island.

So, let’s see… Trump is in DC on the seventh day of the government shutdown to work on it while Pelosi and other Dems are vacationing at resorts for millionaires. I detect a trend. President Trump warned today that if Democrats do not agree to his demands to fund a wall on the southern border, he will “close the Southern border entirely” and cut aid to Central American countries.
He would also cut back on trade with Mexico.
“We will be forced to close the Southern Border entirely if the Obstructionist Democrats do not give us the money to finish the Wall & also change the ridiculous immigration laws that our Country is saddled with,” he tweeted Friday morning. “Hard to believe there was a Congress & President who would approve!”
Pelosi’s crew claims that they have provided counteroffers. “Democrats have offered Republicans three options to re-open government that all include funding for strong, sensible, and effective border security – but not the President’s immoral, ineffective and expensive wall,” said Drew Hammill, Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff. “With the House Majority, Democrats will act swiftly to end the Trump Shutdown, and will fight for a strategic, robust national security policy, including strong and smart border security, and strong support for our servicemembers and veterans.”
President Trump: "I can't tell you when the government is going to be open. I can tell you it's not going to be open until we have a wall, a fence, whatever they would like to call it. I'll call it whatever they want." https://t.co/CLtbYkaxrA pic.twitter.com/XDIv4wF6uV
