Doesn’t Really Win – Cannot Admit Defeat
By: Cristal M Clark
You would think by now that Trump would pick a battle, that he could actually win then again, all of those rather ill thought out campaign promises were never really things that were attainable. Yesterday an agreement was reached in Washington so as to avert another shutdown but, for only $1.375 billion for barriers and NO WALL.
He had been asking for $5.7 billion for his illusionary wall to “protect” the citizens of the United States from all of those MS-13 gang members heading here to rape, pillage and murder, radicals, terrorists and evil doers who flood our “unprotected and under-protected,” southern border. A crisis that Trump and his goons concocted or if you prefer the more accepted term “manufactured,” dreamed up so as to make it appear that he was in fact, able to keep at least one of his campaign promises.
During his rally last night, he seemed to back-peddle just ever so slightly by casually mentioning that a lot of the wall has already been built, which indicates he already knew he had lost that battle.
The funniest part is, that $1.375 billion he is getting is even less than what was originally proposed and agreed to, so he is walking away here with even less than he could have had if, he had not thrown a temper tantrum and held the Government hostage.
What’s more is that Trump also included untrue facts such as the majority of the drugs that are coming into the US are entering the US at illegal border crossings while the truth is that they are making their way in at legal border crossings.
The question now as we all hold our breath, what is Trump going to do? Shred the deal or suck it up and take it? Maybe if he would forgo listening to some of his staunch supporters and actually hear what the rest of America is saying, he will suck it up and focus his attention on more important issues that hard working, red blooded American’s are actually facing each and every day, you know not manufactured hardships, threats and strife.
