In response to the recent government shutdown, President Trump tweeted an attack on the Democrats for choosing to bargain with their DACA agenda instead of securing our country.
“Not looking good for our great Military or Safety & Security on the very dangerous Southern Border. Dems want a Shutdown in order to help diminish the great success of the Tax Cuts, and what they are doing for our booming economy.”
Democrats saw this as yet another way to hurl insults at our President. On Saturday, Democratic Senator Tammy Duckworth publicly bashed the President.
“I spent my entire adult life looking out for the well-being, the training, the equipping of the troops for whom I was responsible. Sadly, this is something that the current occupant of the Oval Office does not seem to care to do — and I will not be lectured about what our military needs by a five-deferment draft dodger. And I have a message for cadet bone spurs: If you cared about our military, you’d stop baiting Kim Jong Un into a war that could put 85,000 American troops, and millions of innocent civilians, in danger.”
Wow. It’s ironic that a Democratic senator would be so adamant to blame Trump when the Senate Democrats are the ones obstructing the bill from passing. Duckworth boasts about her devotion to our country’s military, yet she is part of the reason for the current shutdown.
When press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders heard what Democrats had started saying about President Trump, she took down every one of their insults with the ultimate comeback:
“We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands,” said Sanders. “When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders, we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform.”
MIC DROP! Thank you, Sarah!
