President Donald Trump’s acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney — whose recent appointment kicked off a new era of the White House acting on its America First objectives — said that the president could be in this government shutdown “for the long haul.”
Mulvaney made it clear to reporters outside the White House that Senate Democrats led by Chuck Schumer would probably be willing to play ball, but Nancy Pelosi, 78, is keeping the government shut down because if she gives Trump the border wall then she would lose her speakership.
Here’s what Mulvaney told reporters after Congress adjourned until December 31 following a less than seven-minute session while the President cancels all his holiday plans and stays in the White House to govern the country:
President Donald Trump keeps working for the American people during the government shutdown over Border Wall funding, racking up a feverish string of accomplishments while the frightened and confused Democrats hide out at their vacation spots.
Congress may be adjourned until December 31 — following a less than seven-minute session Thursday — but President Trump is basically singlehandedly running the United States like Bugs Bunny playing baseball in the classic cartoon (below). His head-to-head conflict with Chuck Schumer seems to have inspired him, and the results have been awesome.
Since the government shut down, Trump turned around a Federal Reserve-engineered stock market crash, awarded a 115-mile building contract for the Wall, ended the war in Syria, replaced his duplicitous Defense Secretary, threatened to close the Southern border, trolled Barack Obama on Twitter, cut off foreign aid to three countries, and paid a surprise visit to the troops in Iraq.
And all the media could do was snitch on the troops for having MAGA hats and complain about First Lady Melania’s Timberland boots (Chuck Schumer’s mother is also said to wear Army boots, albeit in a much less fashionable manner).
Trump is basically unstoppable in this standoff because his supporters don’t care if the government is shut down, and in fact many of them are pretty happy about it. CNN is starting to realize that their concerns — like the paycheck plight of “non-essential” government employees — are not shared by the American public because the American public hates CNN.
Now that the government is shut down, who will spy on me, waste my money and have contempt for me?

Trump is obviously not plunging the nation into “chaos,” as Cryin’ Chuck claimed. The Democrats are reaching a crucial tipping point: there is nothing they can say now to convince most Americans that they are actually fighting for the American people in this shutdown. Everybody knows that they are just doing the bidding of George Soros and other globalists who want to wreck the United States out of an ideological and financial craving for a one-world totalitarian government.
Saving America is a much more attractive option, according to America.

WATCH: Tucker SLAMS Lindsey Graham For EB5 Visa Giveaway Scheme Amidst Coronavirus Epidemic
Graham wants to use the crisis to boost immigration visas.
Tucker Carlson took South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham to task in a segment on his show Thursday night, blasting the opportunistic Senator for seeking to insert an immigration visa giveaway into upcoming Coronavirus stimulus legislation.
Graham is attempting to enact a raise in the annual level of EB-5 visas. The controversial program allows wealthy foreigners to enter the United States on the basis of supposed investment they make into the economy.
Graham is lobbying President Trump to agree to a massive boost to the program-raising annual EB-5 visa levels from a current total of 10,000 to 75,000. Graham also seeks to lower the threshold of investment for an EB-5 from $900,000 to $450,000.
In a display of tone-deaf politics taken to a new level, the EB-5 program Graham seeks to expand is currently commonly used by wealthy Chinese citizens to purchase American residency and citizenship. Allowing a free path to residency for China’s richest multi-millionaires and billionaires almost certainly would provide the Chinese government a means of entryism into major American institutions and society, in an age where the American public is more distrustful and skeptical of Chinese influence than ever before.
Watch the segment here:
Graham has also gone on record advocating for a bailout of big businesses and private companies, while opposing direct basic income transfers to everyday working American families.
American citizenship is not a mere bauble to be offered for sale in a time of crisis, especially considering the EB-5’s dubious benefits on the American economy. The verification mechanisms for the visa recipients’ investments in American jobs are notoriously weak, to the extent that both major parties agreed to scale back the program last year.
America is a country, not merely an economy. It’s well past time Senator Graham gives up his constant attempt to retcon old globalist policies into President Donald Trump’s administration, especially in times of national emergency.
