What’s up with the Democrat Party? They consider themselves to be the party of political correctness and yet Democrat Congressmen have publicly called President Trump a Nazi, a racist, a motherf*****, among many other names.

They are still so upset that Trump won the presidency that they refuse to vote for same Trump proposals that they supported before Trump was elected. There are video clips of Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and other Democrats strongly supporting a wall between the US and Mexico. Now, because a wall was part of Trump’s platform, they refuse to fund one. They now say a wall is immoral! They also claim that “experts” say that a wall is ineffective. Not once do they say who these “experts” are. And yet, according to Quebec University expert Elisabeth Vallet, 65 countries have erected fences on their borders. Would they all do so if they thought these walls would be ineffective?

Nancy Pelosi currently wants to include $20 billion in the budget for foreign aid but won’t support $5 billion to fund a wall to help protect our country from illegal immigration, drug smuggling, and MS13 gang members! Their stand is strictly a political decision designed to stop Trump from continuing to be successful. Five billion dollars is less than one tenth of one percent of the budget. So it’s obviously not the amount of money affecting their decision. It is purely political. The Democrats have to stonewall Trump and keep him from being successful because they have no concrete plans of their own to govern our country. Some of the “progressive” plans that the Democrats put forward include free college, a basic free wage for every citizen, free health care etc. To pay for all of this free “stuff”, they plan on raising taxes. As we all know, you can give away free stuff to some people only until you run out of other people’s money! We can only hope that common sense prevails over pure politics so that we can get this country back on track economically and socially!
