Interim Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith refused to commit to fully funding the border wall and to defunding Planned Parenthood when approached by a reporter on Capitol Hill ahead of a recent spending vote.
In an exclusive video obtained by Big League Politics, former Democrat Hyde-Smith was asked whether she would commit to fully fund the border wall.
Hyde-Smith refused to answer.
Hyde-Smith was also asked to explain why she refused to vocally push for full funding of the wall and also refused to defund Planned Parenthood, which she voted to fund on September 18th of this year.
Trump: ‘Ridiculous’ Senate Spending Bill Must Pay for Border Wall
President Trump called the Senate’s vote for a bill without funding for a border wall “ridiculous.”
“I want to know, where is the money for Border Security and the WALL in this ridiculous Spending Bill, and where will it come from after the Midterms? Dems are obstructing Law Enforcement and Border Security,” he said in a tweet on Thursday morning.
Trump made the comments two days after Cindy Hyde-Smith and the Senate passed a spending bill called a smaller “ominibus” that funded Planned Parenthood and did not include border wall funding.
A Washington Post report cleared it up for those who may have missed the vote. “Senate passes defense and health spending bill, tries to delay border-wall fight to after midterms,” the paper reported with a headline.
Without Help from Republicans in Congress, Trump Fights Abortion on his own
On the Senate’s funding of abortion, Politifact, a liberal news site that usually defends abortion rights, almost celebrates that the spending bill continues to fund Planned Parenthood.
Freedom Caucus Chair Jim Jordan rightly decried the bill’s funding of abortion.
Citing Congress’s failure to lead on abortion, a coalition of pro-life groups even called on President Trump to veto the the spending minibus legislation passed by the Senate.
“Since Congress will not lead, we are asking you to do so,” the groups implored Trump in a letter released after the Senate approved abortion funding.
“The current spending bill from Congress includes no provisions to get taxpayers out of the abortion business and was purposefully drafted to exclude some of your other critical priorities,” they wrote, citing the border wall.
The letter was signed by the pro-life groups Heartbeat International, Concerned Women for America, American Legislative Action Committee, March for Life, Students for Life, and Live Action.
The pro-life groups’ call for a veto echoes disgust for Republican leadership in Congress held by anti-abortion activists that Planned Parenthood continues to get federal funding despite Republican control of Congress.
Without help from Republican leadership in the Senate, and including southern Senators representing deep red states like Cindy Hyde-Smith, President Trump has had to make a go of protecting lives of the unborn alone.
Even without the help of Congress, the Trump administration has accomplished much in terms of rolling back federal involvement in abortion, most notably by appointing of conservative judges to federal courts.
Trump’s successes in protecting life have come almost –if not exclusively — from his executive branch, and not from Congress.

REPORTER: Hey, good afternoon Senator. Will you commit to fully fund the wall.
REPORTER: It is hot. So there’s a vote coming up for the budget. Are you going to commit to fully fund the wall? You’re not going to commit to fully fund the wall? So you’re going to vote to fund Planned Parenthood, but you’re not gonna vote to fully fund the wall.
Will you tell Mitch to fund the wall? Will you tell him loudly? Will you tell Mitch McConnell loudly to fully fund the wall?
Biden Executive Order Terminates Construction of New Border Wall
President Joe Biden signed an executive order halting the construction of new border wall on the southern border in one of his first actions as President.
The order terminates an emergency proclamation that allowed discretion to divert federal funding towards wall construction.
“The proclamation will direct an immediate pause in wall construction projects to allow a close review of the legal basis for the funding, as well as the contract methods being used, and it will determine the best ways to redirect funds that were diverted by the Trump administration to fund wall construction,” said Biden’s National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.
The termination of wall construction comes as a Central American caravan numbering in the thousands travels through Honduras and Guatemala, with the intention of securing immigration amnesty from President Biden. The leaders of the caravan have cited Biden’s left-wing immigration promises as the imperative for its formation, demanding he honor what they see as promises of admittance.
Drug-cartel human smugglers are already chomping at the bit at the idea of resuming illegal immigration smuggling en masse during Biden’s presidency, assured that they’ll have free reign to infiltrate America’s borders in a manner akin to the state of affairs under previous establishment Presidents.
Biden also signed Trump’s executive order overturning a travel ban from several high-risk nations. Another executive order re-enrolls the United States into the globalist Paris Climate Accords, which mandates strict carbon emissions curbs on the United States without imposing similar requirements on China.
