Even with the midterm elections looming, Republican leaders in Congress made clear this week they're paying close attention to a looming battle over President Donald Trump's promised border wall.

On Monday, House Speaker Paul Ryan predicted a "big fight" over border security on the horizon, while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday that the GOP is "committed" to working to secure the funding the President wants for his signature campaign pledge.

I don’t trust the GOP leadership or half the GOP politicians in office on this. However, I completely trust the democrats to do their best to destroy America and to eliminate freedom.

Build the wall using the military if necessary. Let the Dems and RINO’s come out of the woodwork to fight it. At least we’ll know for certain who the traitors are.

Too many RINOs don't want the wall, but are too scared to admit it.
They don't want to lose their illegal baby sitters, cooks, and grounds keepers.
They might have to actually pay some of their replacement workers minimum wage if they build the wall.

Nope.
Yes the illegals that are in jail to build the wall.
Punish them will 10 years hard labor building the wall.
Fine and imprision all the deep state that broke the law trying to stop Trump, and make them labor building the wall for 10 years.
Fine Waters for inciting riots and take all of her money to put towards building the wall; DITO Pelosi, and Schumer as well,

If Yosemitest is not Speaker of the House, nominate him to replace Useless Sessions.

They’ve traded our National Sovereignty for cheap roofing, yardwork and IT.

The Corps of Engineers built the Panama Canal. Why shouldn’t the Army build it? Bonus points if you know why.

“I don’t trust GOP leadership”

GOP leadership is an oxymoron.

Ryan and his Rino associates have never been leaders.
