At midnight on Friday, the government was sent into a temporary shutdown after the Senate failed to approve a short-term spending bill. Republican senators needed 60 votes to move forward with bill that would have funded the government for 30 days, however, they came up short of the required 60.
President Trump tweeted about the shutdown late Friday with an attack on the Democrats for choosing to bargain with their DACA agenda instead of securing our country.
“Not looking good for our great Military or Safety & Security on the very dangerous Southern Border. Dems want a Shutdown in order to help diminish the great success of the Tax Cuts, and what they are doing for our booming economy.”
While blame has been placed by both sides, the Democrats are adamant that the shutdown is the fault of the Republicans who refuse to bargain with them. Senate minority leader, Chuck Schumer, blamed the President outright saying, “He’s turned blowing up bipartisan agreements into an art form,” Mr. Schumer said of the president, adding that “negotiating with President Trump is like negotiating with Jell-O.”
This is far from reality. The Democrats choose illegals over true Americans. They have chosen a government shutdown in order to further their own agenda. They chose politics over Americans.
On Saturday morning, Mike Huckabee weighed in with a huge SLAM to Cryin’ Chuck Schumer:
“For Schumer the “Shutdown King” leader to claim Dems have no responsibility; he knows it takes 60 votes so he is either utterly lying or ignorant of the process he leads. Schumer turning Senate into a ‘shut-hole.’”
BOOM! This was the perfect response to Schumer’s lies. The Dems are completely responsible for the shutdown and refuse to speak the truth.
Share this everywhere if you agree with Mike Huckabee!
