    Neither the White House nor congressional Republicans have reached out to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to try to hammer out a spending bill that would prevent a government shutdown before the Dec. 21 deadline, sources told The Post on Friday.
  • TRUMP SHARES OLD VIDEOS OF SCHUMER, HILLARY, OBAMA SUPPORTING BORDER SECURITY

    President Trump used old clips of Democrat leaders sharing their past — and somewhat surprising — ideas about immigration in a recent video released in favor of border security. “The Democrats are absolute hypocrites. All along, they’ve been supporting walls,” Trump began in the video, speaking from the White House Rose Garden. The video then cuts to clips of Democratic leaders Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Chuck Schumer talking tough on immigration.
  • No. 2 House Republican: Gov’t shutdown ‘stupid’, may happen [McCarthy]

    A looming, partial government shutdown would be “stupid” but might be unavoidable if Democrats refuse to support President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico, the second-ranking House Republican said on Thursday. Even if Republicans assemble enough votes to approve the wall in the House, the plan probably will fail in the Senate, said Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California. The House majority leader noted that Senate Democrats have pledged to block the bill from receiving the necessary 60 votes. McCarthy said on the House floor that he thinks “going into a shutdown is stupid,” but he offered no immediate plan...

    Congressmen and senators are supposed to be fighting for the American people, their constituents. But when Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer pounced on the president at the Oval Office on Tuesday for whom exactly were they fighting? Both the Senate and the House oath of offices are nearly identical. They begin like this: "I do solemnly swear or affirm that I will support and defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same." At this point, are we even sure that Chuck and Nancy took...

    There are thousands of families in the U.S. who have lost children and family members to illegal aliens in a variety of horrific ways. In that sure-to-go-down-in-history Oval Office confab, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer effectively let us know that they don't care about us or our losses. They need Democrat voters; that is their abiding goal. The theatrics in the Oval Office on Tuesday morning were just that: great theater. Trump always steps ahead of his opponents, and he set up Schumer and Pelosi. He began his discussion with the press in the room. Pelosi came in spouting "transparency"...

    The Hill ^ | 12/13/18 | Alexander Bolton
    Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) on Thursday declared that Democrats will not provide any more funding for a border wall and are willing to wait until January, when a Democratic majority in the House will give them more leverage, to deal with the issue. “I want to be crystal clear. There will be no additional appropriations to pay for the border wall. It’s done,” Schumer declared on the Senate floor. Parts of the government will shut down after Dec. 21 if a new funding bill isn’t signed into law. The sticking point has been Trump’s demands for $5 billion...

    RUSH: So the Drive-By Media and others continue to debate the Oval Office meeting yesterday between Chuck and Nancy. They’re becoming a couple. Chuck and Nancy went to the Oval Office, Chuck and Nancy did this, Chuck and Nancy over there, Chuck and Nancy here. And of course the Drive-Bys think that Chuck and Nancy just hit a grand-slam home run. And many of the Never Trumpers think that Trump just made the biggest mistake in the world by claiming that he would own a shutdown if it ever happened. And that one example I think serves to illustrate one...

    The Washington Post ^ | December 10, 2018 | Erica Werner
    Democratic leaders plan to offer President Trump $1.3 billion in funding for a border fence when they meet Tuesday at the White House, a bid that falls far short of the $5 billion Trump is demanding to fund a border wall. Democrats, Republicans and the White House have until Dec. 21 to reach a budget deal if they are to avert a partial government shutdown, but talks are deadlocked over funding for the wall. As House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) prepare for the Tuesday morning, Democrats and Trump are, if anything,...

    In a contentious Oval Office meeting, President Donald Trump and the Democratic congressional leaders — Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer — disagreed over funding for a border wall, mangling some facts in the process. The president claimed that “a lot of the wall is built,” and he cited statistics purporting to show “it’s very effective” at stopping illegal immigration. But his figures correspond to those in a Customs and Border Protection video on various border security strategies deployed before he took office, from 1992 to 2016. And in most sectors Trump cited as successful, there is very little fencing...

    President Trump clearly shocked House speaker-to-be Nancy Pelosi and Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer yesterday with his televising of the Oval Office sit-down over his demand for $5 billion in funding for border security, including funding of critical mileage for his border wall.  Knowing well that Pelosi had already vowed publicly that "transparency and openness" would characterize the Democrat-run House starting next month, her plaintive request to speak in private scored points for Trump and revealed her hypocrisy before any substance at all was considered. The remarkable body language during the meeting tells the story of Trump's dominance.  Here is the...

    Border Security is National Security President Donald Trump is not Nancy Pelosi’s type of guy. Whine Cellar King Chuck Schumer and those brave boys grown tall hiding behind the voluminous skirts of the #MeToo Movement coyly identifying as ‘feminists’ are. Males who wear their self guilt as openly as they do their neckties such as Michael Skolnik, who as it turns out, led Louis Farrakhan advocating women lemming-like out on the Big Women’s March, are much more Pelosi’s cup of tepid tea.|

    The party that likes to tout transparency met with President Trump yesterday to discuss funding the border wall and repeatedly called on him to shut down the cameras so they could discuss it in private. "This is a most unfortunate thing. We came in here in good faith and we’re entering this kind of discussion in the public view.” – Pelosi How dare he - exposing us to the public this way!? Caught with their pants down, so to speak, as they’ve both been on record as being in favor of a border wall before they were against it. Just...

    RUSH: I think Pelosi and Schumer were walking in there expecting Trump’s surrender. You gotta examine their frame of mind, and I’m an expert in that. I’m an expert in the liberal frame of mind. I’m an expert in how liberals act and think. I’m an expert in their psychology, and I don’t have to treat a single one of them to be this expert.

    President Trump on Tuesday angrily threatened a government shutdown if Congress doesn’t fund his long-promised border wall during a heated White House sit-down with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. “I am proud to shut down the government for border security, Chuck. The people of this country don’t want criminals and people that have lots of problems pouring into our country,” the president told the Senate minority leader during a remarkable, tense exchange as the cameras rolled. “I will take the mantle. I will be the one to shut it down. I’m not going to blame you. I’m going to shut...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer warned Tuesday in front of the White House that there will be a government shutdown if President Donald Trump refuses to budge from his demand for $5 billion of wall funding. He spoke after the tense meeting with President Trump.The bottom line is simple. The President made clear that he wants a shutdown. His position, if he sticks to his position for a $5 billion wall, he will get no wall and he will get a shutdown. The bottom line is very, very simple. That is, we want border security. We offered him border security....
