President Trump Re-Opened The Government After 34 Days
The one thing we learned today is that President Donald J. Trump cares for the common man while Democrats (who claim to fight for the common man) only cares about opposing Trump. Today’s announcement that President Trump is re-opening the government is a temporary loss for the President but could lead to a long term victory.
The Wall Street Journal reports: Speaking in the Rose Garden, Mr. Trump said he would sign a bill to open the government until Feb. 15 and start negotiations between the House and Senate over a full-year bill funding the Homeland Security Department, which oversees the border.
Losing The Battle, Winning The War
President Trump now has 3 weeks to negotiate a border wall. Today, he’s putting the ball of making sure that a border wall gets built and the government stays open on the backs of Democrats who have promised to negotiate on a border wall.
“Going forward, I hope Democrats will stay true to the commitment they have stated constantly over the past weeks – that once government was re-opened, they would be perfectly willing to negotiate in good faith on full-year government funding that would include a significant investment in urgently needed border security measures, including physical barriers,President Donald J Trump
Democrats have already shown they don’t care about the little man and government employees. In fact, Democrats had voted against bills to get federal workers paid during the shutdown.
Here we are now, Trump’s opened the government to hopefully earn some goodwill and get things done.
What’s Next For Trump
President Trump should be making the State of the Union address on time and on location, per Nancy Pelosi’s letters to Trump. At the State of the Union, Trump should then turn to Nancy Pelosi and say “You’re the reason why people didn’t get paid. You’re the reason why America is not safe. You are failing the American people”.
Trump should also take the State of the Union address to announce his new plan for the border wall. It’s essential for him to spin this and turn this loss into a winning point for Trump.
What If Trump Loses?
If Trump can’t get his wall built, he risks not being re-elected.
