Trump says he’s considering closing the government because Dems blocked Dreamer protections and border wall

President Donald Trump tweeted that he is considering veto of the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill that will keep the government funded because Democrats blocked his proposal to protect the country’s 800,000 dreamers—illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children.

Congressman Frank Pallone called Trump a bigot and voted against the spending bill because it did not include DACA protections. Pallone should apologize to the president.

    He is trying to negotiate to fulfill his promises with nearly zero help from those jealous, petty RINO’s. Neither they nor the Dems want to give DACA relief/ settlement or build that wall- they just want to use them as issues this years, to take away our flimsy minority and hurt/ get rid of our “ interloper” president: how small, dangerous, and sick. Drain that swamp, Mr President!

    What’s “small, dangerous, and sick” is the brain of a President or a Monmouth right-wing extremist willing to shut down the federal government over the idiot wall.

    very happy now that he did sign it- enjoy paying out another trillion for far too many useless giveaways. Including a tunnel for people who voted against us, and the killers at PP, and the phonies at NPR. It might be a good thing for once, to try some fiscal restraint and responsibility and try a shut- down to wake some people up, in order to get a better, smarter deal for we who pay, but, looks like we will never see that. Also, keep up showing your own ignorance, by always resorting to insults, to someone with differing views from yours!

    100% of the Dems in Congress would vote for a clean bill that protects DACA recipients

    but not for a wall that will absolutely discourage so much drug trafficking and low- skilled folks coming in, who end up adding to our cycle of poverty and over- use of the safety net programs, that are supposed to be for our own citizens! It is getting so sickening and maddening that they keep ignoring what the majority of taxpaying citizens want, and elected them to DO!
