Battle For The Border Wall…Trump Challenges Dems in Primetime Address


WASHINGTON, DC – JANUARY 08: U.S. President Donald Trump speaks to the nation in his first-prime address from the Oval Office of the White House on January 8, 2019 in Washington, DC. A partial shutdown of the federal government has gone on for 17 days following the president’s demand for $5.7 billion for a border wall while Democrats have refused.

President Trump took to the air last night on prime-time television to deliver his first televised national address to Americans from the Oval Office of the White House, to explain why the partial government shutdown is necessary to secure $5.7 billion dollars to fund the border wall.

In an unprecedented move, the three major TV networks limited President Trump’s speech to only 8 minutes. The networks initially hesitated to air the President’s speech at all because they feared he would say the wrong thing. Either way, I wasn’t tuned in.

Trump urged the American people to support his battle with the Democrats for border wall funding. “This is a choice between right and wrong, justice and injustice,” he said, describing border security as “a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul.”

Trump said Black and Hispanic Americans were hardest hit by the immigration crisis. He said migrant women and children were “victims” of lawless gangs and human smugglers who raped 1/3 of women on the way to the U.S.

These children are used as human pawns by vicious coyotes and ruthless gangs,” he said.

Trump said drugs and crime coming across the border endangered American lives.

The current shutdown began on December 22, and is estimated to cost the American taxpayers $6.5 billion per week.

    1. I think you’ve hit on something. This explains why this MoFo lies with every breath he takes. His brain is built from legos that keep falling apart. And even though instructions say for 4+ year old, this explains a lot of shyt too. This MoFo thinks and acts like a 2 year old. Damn. When you’re even too stupid for Legos you know you’re stupid AF.

  2. Tracy news stations/outlets were hesitant to air the president’s address because of his history of false statements as facts and blatant lies. That was the only fear of the president saying the wrong thing.
