President Donald Trump used a terrorist attack in France to get another dig at the democratic leaders of the Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi conference on border security in the aftermath of their shocking Oval Office lucifer on the issue.
& # 39; Another very heavy terrorist attack in France. We are going to strengthen our borders even more. Chuck and Nancy must give us the votes to get extra border security!, & Tweeted Wednesday morning.
His tweet was the first of two to show that the president was stoked and gambled for a fight in the wake of his controversial meeting with the Democrats, who repeatedly played on cable news and on the internet.
President Trump said he would close the government if his wall was not financed
Trump told the expected Speaker of the House evil that funding for his wall in & # 39; two seconds & # 39; in the lower chamber would pass, but that does not matter, because it will not reach the threshold of 60 votes in the Senate without democratic support
In a series of tweets, Trump attacked the Democrats and used problems abroad to reinforce his argumentation at home for his boundary wall.
On Tuesday evening a suspicious firearm sprayed at the Christmas market in Strasbourg, one of the largest in France. The French authorities call it an act of terrorism.
A manhunt is still underway for the suspect, who was injured during the attack, killing two people and wounding 13.
The president quoted the attack in another blow against Schumer, the Democratic leader of the Senate, and Pelosi, who is expected to speak to the Lower House next year.
He also demobilized another democrat – former President Barack Obama – in a second tweet that promised the lack of funding for his signature campaign: a border wall stretching between the United States and Mexico.
The Democrats and President Obama gave Iran $ 150 billion and got nothing, but they can not give $ 5 billion for National Security and a Wall ?, & # 39; he wrote.
Trump has already made the claim of $ 150 billion on Obama, and the fact that checkers are labeled incorrectly.
During Obama's term of office, the United States and European countries released about $ 100 billion – not $ 150 billion – in previously frozen Iranian assets. Most funds paid the debt of the country.
But $ 5 billion is the estimated price to build Trump's boundary wall, which was an important promise during his 2016 presidential campaign.
The president also praised his wall and border security in the meantime of 2018 while campaigning in states he won for candidates from the Republican Senate. The GOP collected four Senate seats from the Democrats in November – their only victory when the party lost the house on the other side.
Trump bad Democrats on border security during his campaign rallies, they called & # 39; crazy & # 39; and accused the party of wanting to change the US into another Venezuela, a country undergoing an economic meltdown.
Trump's bi-monthly tweets showed that he is steadfast, because the negotiations between the two parties continue in the attempt to finance the government before a deadline of 21 December.
He has repeatedly threatened to close the government if his wall is not financed.
His tweets come the day after his extraordinary meeting with Schumer and Pelosi, who quickly descended into a quarrel between the leaders over Trump's billion-dollar boundary wall.
In the shocking malaise, which took place before the press, Pelosi Trump inquired that his boundary wall would not pass in the House of Representatives, where Republicans would have a majority of seats if a ballot came.
& # 39; The fact is that you do not have the votes in the house & # 39 ;, she said emphatically.
Trump angrily told the expected Speaker of the House that the financing for his wall would pass & # 39; two seconds & # 39; in the lower chamber, it does not matter, because it will not reach the 60-vote threshold in the Senate without democratic support.
"Nancy, I do. And we need border security, & # 39; he replied as the meeting went into total chaos.
Schumer insisted that Trump would be willing to turn off the lights because you can not get on your way. & # 39;
Donald Trump's bargaining session with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer turned Tuesday wildly out of control, with politicians teasing themselves viciously in the face of reporters.
Video of the shocking encounter that is played time and time again on cable news and on the internet
& # 39; You just say, in my way that we will close the government, & # 39; he exploded.
For twenty minutes, the Democratic leaders spoke with Trump in front of the camera and emphasized their long-awaited position that he can not get his border weapon funding.
Enraged, the president said he would close the government if they did not give it to him.
& # 39; You want to attract that [me], I take it, & # 39; he refuted when Schumer told him that the last government closure was also his fault. & # 39; You know what I will say: yes, if we do not get what we want, in one way or another – whether it's by you, by an army, by anything you want to call – I'll make the government . Absolutely. & # 39;
Schumer was willing to leave the argument there, but Trump dug himself in and repeated repeatedly that he had closed the government and had taken the blame.
I am proud to close the border security government, Chuck, because people in this country do not want criminals and people who have many problems and drugs in our country. So I'll take the cloak, "he said. & # 39; I will be the one who closes it. I'm not going to blame you. The last time you shut it down, it did not work. I take the cloak off. & # 39;
