Trump Trolls Obamas Over Wall Around D.C. Home

Published

President Donald J. Trump took to Twitter Sunday to prod Barack and Michelle Obama and make a point about border security.

“President and Mrs. Obama built/has a ten foot Wall around their D.C. mansion/compound. I agree, totally necessary for their safety and security. The U.S. needs the same thing, slightly larger version!” Trump said.

Trump echoed a common argument made by supporters of a wall on the southern border. If the elites of the world use walls to shield their private abodes from the riff-raff, why shouldn’t ordinary Americans have a wall to protect them from illegal aliens and potential undesirables?

The Tweet comes during an epic showdown between Trump and Congressional Democrats, who will not agree to a $5 billion dollar budget stipulation that would fund a border wall, despite past calls for a similar structure when it was politically expedient.

Trump has vowed to go to extreme lengths to get the wall built.

“Whatever it takes. We need a wall,” Trump told reporters Wednesday, referring to the government shutdown. “We need safety for our country.”

“We are putting America first for the first time in a long time,” he continued.

A partial government shutdown has been in effect for nine days, during which “non-essential” government personnel have been furloughed. Questions remain unanswered about what will happen if a solution is not reached by Jan 3. when the 116th Congress, with a House of Representatives controlled by Democrats, is sworn in.

President Donald Trump Pledges to Nominate A Woman as Next Supreme Court Justice

It’s going to be a woman.

President Trump revealed that he plans to nominate a woman as his next Supreme Court nominee during a rally on Saturday in North Carolina. The nominee, if confirmed, would replace longtime progressive judge Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who passed away on Friday.

Reports indicate that President Trump plans to announce the identity of a SCOTUS nominee on either Monday or Tuesday. He suggested as such during his North Carolina rally, confirming that the nominee would be a woman. The crowd could be heard chanting “fill that seat,” indicative of the strong desire among conservatives for President Trump to exercise his constitutional duties and advance a nominee.

Amy Coney Barrett and Barbara Lagoa are considered to be strong candidates to fill the nomination, with the former almost being picked in 2018 to fill the vacancy ultimately filled by Brett Kavanaugh. Barrett is reportedly considered a front-runner in the selection process.

President Trump also cited the constitutional basis for nominating a Supreme Court justice, pointing out that Article 2 of the Constitution placed the imperative upon him as President to do as such. Republicans control both the White House and the Senate, a crucial difference from the divided government of 2016 when President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland was blocked by the Senate.

Democrats are guaranteed to fight furiously to block the confirmation of any Supreme Court nominee advanced by President Trump, with Chuck Schumer himself saying that he wouldn’t accept the possibility of any new justices while Trump is in office, even if it’s during his second term.

Tentative confirmation proceedings, which will occur in the midst of the Presidential election, have the chance to make Brett Kavanaugh’s wild confirmation process look like a gingerly walk in the park.
