President Trump was well within his right to declare a national emergency at the southern border.
That should not, nay, cannot be argued.
Speaker Pelosi vowed to block Trump’s decree, but POTUS isn’t having any of it.
President Donald Trump vowed Friday to veto any legislation attempting to block his State of Emergency declaration on the Southern border.
“One hundred percent,” Trump said when asked by reporters at the White House if he would veto any legislation trying to block his order.
House Democrats led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi introduced a resolution on Friday to block Trump’s declaration.
One way or the other, Trump will win this fight. It’s just that simple.
According to the California Democrat, the “GOP attitude disrespects workers, dishonors our values and damages our economy.”
Here’s her statement:
San Francisco – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after the Department of Labor issued its January jobs statement, which does not include the Trump Shutdown’s impact on the 800,000 federal workers who were furloughed or forced to work without pay for 35 days:
“The January jobs report holds some encouraging news, but it belies the lasting financial damage that the Trump Shutdown has inflicted on hundreds of thousands of Americans across the nation. Federal workers, many of them veterans, saw their financial security shaken, their credit ratings harmed, and their lives upended by the longest shutdown in history. And now, with families still hurting, President Trump refuses to take a second senseless shutdown off the table.
“Meanwhile, House Republicans overwhelmingly voted against a pay raise for federal civilian workers, refusing to respect the perseverance and patriotism of the men and women who were just furloughed or forced to work without pay. This consistently callous GOP attitude disrespects workers, dishonors our values and damages our economy.
“House Democrats are working For The People, moving forward with our bold agenda to lower health costs, raise workers’ wages, and restore integrity to government. We must keep government open, and keep working to deliver an economy that works for every American, not just the wealthy and well-connected few.”
Pelosi gave a speech before America’s Mayors on Thursday. She repeatedly begged them to clap after she said something she felt deserved applause.
After thanking a member of her audience, she said, “That’s an applause line! I’ll let you know.”
On Valentine’s Day, Pelosi wished Americans a “Happy Thanksgiving.”
You know, because the pilgrims and the Indians sat down for a meal on February 14, and all.
Pelosi: “Happy Valentine’s Day. We saluted our victory – or the victory for the American people – earlier with chocolate. Chocolate from California, I call it the champagne of chocolate. So again, I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. You should go home now to your loved ones.”
