Trump: “Less Than 50-50” Chance of Wall Deal

Published

on

President Donald Trump threw ice on speculation of an upcoming deal with Congressional Democrats to finally fund a ‘big, beautiful’ wall on the southern border in an interview with the Wall Street Journal on Sunday.

The prospect of an impossible chasm between the White House and House Democrats makes the option of declaring a national emergency to properly fund a construct a border wall a more realistic pathway to beginning its construction for the President. However, Trump did say that another government shutdown was “certainly an option” in his Sunday interview, making it possible that Democrats declining to provide an acceptable offer for government funding could place the federal government back at square one.

The President assuaged concerns from his supporters over the outcome of the protracted government shutdown in a tweet Sunday, after agreeing to a deal that ended the shutdown without the $5.7 billion in wall funding he had been seeking. With prospects for negotiation with Democrats seeming increasingly fruitless, it’s beginning to look more and more likely that the White House will have to turn to the declaration of a national emergency to properly fulfill Trump’s signature campaign promise of a southern border wall.

It’s possible that progressives and moderates within the Republican Party could try to use the President’s determination to follow through on wall construction as a crack through which to sneak a massive amnesty for illegal immigrants. Trump told the WSJ that he doubted he would be presented with an acceptable deal for wall funding that would involve American citizenship being extended to those in the country illegally.

The White House has floated February as the time frame in which a national emergency could be declared. It’s likely that such a declaration would be met with a flurry of progressive legal challenges appealing to activist judges to stop the project, but there’s considerable legal precedent placing national security-related federal infrastructure projects with Presidential powers.

ACQUITTED FOREVER: President Trump is Found ‘Not Guilty’ by the Senate and Will Remain in Office Following Impeachment

The Democrats wasted the public’s time and money with this charade.

Published

President Donald Trump has been officially acquitted of two articles of impeachment and will not be convicted following his impeachment by the House of Representatives. He will remain in office despite the best efforts of the Democrats.

“The Senate having tried Donald John Trump, President of the United States, upon two articles of impeachment exhibited against him by the House of Representatives, and two-thirds of the Senators present not having found him guilty of the charges contained therein, it is therefore ordered and adjudged that the said Donald John Trump be and he is hereby acquitted of the charges in said articles,” Chief Justice John Roberts said to conclude the trial.

On the first article of impeachment pertaining to abuse of power, 48 senators determined that Trump was guilty while 52 determined he was not guilty. On the second article of impeachment pertaining to obstruction of Congress, 47 senators determined that Trump was guilty while 53 determined he was not guilty.

The Senate would have had to garner a supermajority of 67 Senators to determine that Trump was guilty of impeachable offenses. However, not even a simple majority could come to that conclusion even though the Democrats threw everything but the kitchen sink in an attempt to convince them.

“You can’t trust this president to do the right thing, not for one minute, not for one election, not for the sake of the country,” said House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA). “A man without character or ethical compass will not find his way.”

The Democrat-led proceedings ended up being a massive waste of time at great expense to the U.S. taxpayer, as Trump and his Republican supporters said they would be.

“The president has done nothing wrong, and these types of impeachments must end,” said White House counsel Pat Cipollone about the witch hunt that occurred.

With impeachment now behind him, President Trump can focus on enacting his agenda and winning re-election in November.
