Though Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi with the help from liberal media tried discrediting America’s need for border security, president Trump’s message came through loud and clear. We the people understand the need to secure our southern border to stop the flow of illegal activity. Nothing more than angry Democrats Schumer and Pelosi playing hardball politics holding America Hostage! 😡
And to those who signed this petition to remove Rashida Tlaib from congress I thank you. This petition already received 102,462 signatures, which exceeds the minimum required 100,000 to be heard by the Whitehouse. It’s living proof how much America loves and believes in our president, Donald Trump.
From winknews.com: RNC response to President Trump’s speech. Unsurprisingly, the Republican National Committee issued a statement strongly supporting the president’s message.
Tonight, Americans saw their president fighting for a solution to fund our government while protecting American citizens, versus the approach of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer which is to resist, resist, resist at all costs, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said. It wasn’t always this way. President Trump is simply asking Democrats to support border security policies they all supported just a few short years ago. It’s time for Democrats to put down their swords and work with President Trump.
Fact check: Heroin coming across the southern border.
CLAIM: President Trump said the southern border pipeline vast quantities of illegal drugs including meth, heroin, cocaine and fentanyl. He said that every week, 300 U.S. citizens are killed by heroin alone, and 90 percent floods from the southern border.
FACT: According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, 15,958 Americans died from heroin overdoses in 2017. This comes out to about 306 deaths per week. And according to the Drug Enforcement Administration’s 2018 report, The SWB remains the primary entry point for heroin into the United States. Most of the heroin seized by CBP occurs along the U.S.-Mexico border near San Diego, California. Schumer and Pelosi response transcript is in the above link.
Please sign this petition to remove Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi from office. Their hatred toward President Trump is interfering with doing their jobs! 😉
