Chuck Schumer Has Sick Message To Americans Who Donated $1Mil To Fund Trump’s Wall

Congress has been in a heated battle all week as the deadline to a government shutdown looms, now just two days away. The fate government operations and payroll right before Christmas hinges on whether the two sides can come to a consensus on how or whether or not to fund the $5 billion border wall.

Leading the charge against President Trump’s plans to secure our border with this massive endeavor is Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY). Schumer has not been shy about his disdain for the idea of the wall and thinks it’s irresponsible to protect our country with one, especially with what he thinks is too much to pay to build it.

What Democrats don’t realize, or seem to care about, is that they don’t speak for every American and what the taxpaying citizens of this nation want. While Congress continued to bicker over protecting our country from outside invaders, a triple amputee war veteran and Purple Heart recipient, 37-year-old Brian Kolfage Jr, stepped up to protect his fellow citizens again, this time establishing a GoFundMe account to build our border wall.

In just two days, Kolfage crowdfunded $1 million for the wall and shows no signs of slowing down. The massive success and incredible response from Americans all over the country pouring money into the fund to build the wall proves Schumer wrong, in that more people seem to want a wall than those for open borders.

While the funds poured in at a rate of about $100,000 per hour today, Schumer took to the stand to speak his piece against Trump and the construction of his wall that the American people are proving they want.

Chicago Tribune reports:

Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer of New York said Democrats oppose Trump’s border demands because the wall is “inefficient” and because Trump, as a candidate, promised that Mexico would pay for it, which Mexico has refused to do.

“We want smart, effective border security,” Schumer said. “That’s not a wall.”

The swift pace of movement in Congress came after Trump moved off his demand. Trump has not said that he would sign such a temporary measure, but White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Wednesday said “he’ll take a look at that certainly.”

On Twitter, Trump appeared to respond to criticism that he was retreating. He insisted that “One way or the other, we will win on the Wall!”
