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?
LOL: Ignorant Blue Checks on Twitter Get Confused After President Trump’s Remark That ‘Coyotes’ are Smuggling Children Across the Border
These people know nothing that is true.
After President Donald Trump remarked that “coyotes” are smuggling children across the U.S. southern border in yesterday’s presidential debate, verified liberals on Twitter demonstrated their extreme ignorance when it comes to the immigration issue.
Some of the low lights from these clueless Democrats can be seen here:
Tonight on blue checkmark twitter, they don’t know what coyotes are.

Alleged high school shooting victim and gun control spokesman David Hogg showed his lack of basic intelligence on the issue as well:
Imagine calling the immigrant parents that bring their children to the United States for a better life “Coyotes”
The level of xenophobia is sickening.

The incredible ignorance from the Left on the true nature of illegal immigration has resulted in their support for some of the most ghastly and inhumane policies imaginable.
Big League Politics reported on how CBS News painted human traffickers in a positive light because they were flooding the border as part of a planned and well-financed migrant caravan last year:
The Darién Gap, a undeveloped jungle swampland connecting North and South America at the border of Panama and Colombia, is said to be one of the most dangerous places in the Americas. It’s largely overrun by human smugglers, paramilitary organizations, and drug traffickers, and the U.S State Department advises Americans not to travel to the region.
The region’s criminal reputation didn’t stop CBS News from running a sympathetic profile of some of the human smugglers operating in the area on Saturday. CBS’s portrayal of a ‘coyote’ named Emerson Gonzalez Jimenez was unquestioning of his claims that he was offering a generous service to the migrants who sought passage through the Darien Gap to Panama, usually on the way to the United States.
Colombians, Venezuelans, Haitians and even individuals from Asia or Africa commonly hire the services of the smugglers to navigate through the dangerous region. It’s not uncommon for migrants to die during the often-perilous journey, as the Gap poses a threat on account of its wild nature and the criminals known to operate within it.
A Marxist terrorist organization known as FARC, the Spanish-language synonym for Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, has extensively operated in the area. FARC has trafficked and sold a great deal of cocaine destined for the United States, in addition to waging a violent insurgency against the government of Colombia.
The crossing of often helpless and penniless migrants through the Darién Gap poses a humanitarian concern. Migrants are largely powerless at the hands of the coyotes guiding them, and can be easily exploited. Female migrants are often raped or forced into prostitution by smugglers.
Closing the borders would not only keep Americans safe, but it would also stop human trafficking networks from smuggling exploited children across the border.
