President Donald Trump is not backing down an inch from his demand for $5 billion in Wall funding from the Democrats in Congress.
“Whatever it takes. We need a wall,” Trump told reporters Wednesday, referring to the government shutdown. “We need safety for our country.”
But Trump was mostly focused Wednesday on the military, showing his tremendous respect for the “sentinels who watch over our nation. You are the warriors who defend our freedom. You are the patriots who ensure the flame of liberty burns forever bright.”
Here is Trump’s feisty and inspiring speech to the troops in Iraq. President Trump and First Lady Melania surprised our brave men and women after making the recent decision to withdraw troops from Syria after the US-led coalition pummeled strategic ISIS targets with bombings and fires. For the time being, ISIS’ planned sinister Caliphate in the blackened heart of the Middle East is defeated.
“We are putting America first for the first time in a long time,” President Trump vowed, promising the troops that the right way of thinking is finally prevailing in the White House after a very long period of corruption by his predecessors and their national security wonks.
The “Whatever it takes” line was tried out by Stephen Miller on a Sunday show prior to the government shutdown, but President Trump is making it clear that he means it. After one attempt by chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to go lower on the $5 billion in a proposed deal with Democrats, Trump is backing off from any sign of compromise.
House Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows of North Carolina said that President Donald Trump is not in a comprising mood.
“I can tell you, if they believe this President is going to yield on this particular issue, they’re misreading him, misreading the American people,” Meadows stated, throwing cold water on the Democrats’ $1.3 billion counter-offer.
Since President Donald Trump’s base does not mind that the government is shut down, and since the stock market is back up Wednesday, Trump is in a much stronger negotiating position than Chuck Schumer and the Democrats, who are fighting to leave the border un-walled and open to continued invasion by criminal drug cartels.
Have you noticed the difference since the government shutdown? I haven't. Perhaps we should leave the government shut down. If we have nonessential employee's in government, then why are they government employees?

Now that the government is shut down, who will spy on me, waste my money and have contempt for me?
