The government enters day 23 of being partially shutdown as President Trump prepares to travel to
Tennessee, New Orleans, to address The American Farm Bureau Federation’s Annual Convention.
Prior to departing the White House he hasn’t left in months, President Trump finished Sunday by tweeting, eight more times, to give him a total of thirteen tweets for Sunday.
6. He tweets he wishes he could share with “everyone the beauty and majesty of being in the White House,” as the White House lawn is covered in snow. He adds in all caps, “SPECIAL COUNTRY, SPECIAL PLACE!”
7. & 8. In the first tweet President Trump explains that the U.S. is starting the long overdue pullout from Syria, he explains that the U.S. “will attack again from existing nearby base,” if ISIS reforms, he adds, the U.S. “will devastate Turkey economically if they hit Kurds.” In his second tweet he explains that the U.S. does not “want the Kurds to provoke Turkey,” he adds, “Russia, Iran and Syria have been the biggest beneficiaries of the long term U.S. policy of destroying ISIS in Syria,” he goes on to tweet, “we also benefit,” but “it is now time to bring our troops,” home. He concludes the tweet by writing, “Stop the ENDLESS WARS!”
9. In this tweet he mocked Amazon and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos, by calling him “Jeff Bozo.”
10. & 11. He mocks Senator Elizabeth Warren’s video announcement by explaining had she made the announcement from “Bighorn or Wounded Knee” adding, “with her husband dressed in full Indian garb, it would have been a smash!”
12. & 13. In his last two tweets on Sunday President Trump quoted an opinion piece written by Pat Buchanan, posted at Rasmussen reports. The first quote, “Trump’s portrait of an unsustainable border crisis is dead on: “In the last two years, ICE officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal records, including those charged or convicted of 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes and 4,000 violent killings.” The second quote from the article the President quoted, “America’s southern border is eventually going to be militarized and defended or the United States, as we have known it, is going to cease to exist. And Americans will not go gentle into that good night.
I guess all things considered we can be grateful the President didn’t quote this section of the opinion piece:
The more multiracial, multiethnic, multicultural, multilingual America becomes — the less it looks like Ronald Reagan’s America — the more dependably Democratic it will become.
The Democratic Party is hostile to white men, because the smaller the share of the U.S. population that white men become, the sooner that Democrats inherit the national estate.
The only way to greater “diversity,” the golden calf of the Democratic Party, is to increase the number of women, African-Americans, Asians and Hispanics, and thereby reduce the number of white men.Rasmussen reports
On Monday President Trump has tweeted six times so far, deleted and failed to replace a tweet, and re-tweeted five tweets, four from RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and one from FOX News contributor Geraldo Rivera.
1. But this is bad news for Russia, why would President Trump do such a thing? Thought he worked for Kremlin?
This quote is in response to the New York Times article, that explained the FBI had opened a counterintelligence investigation on President Trump, to determine if President Trump was working with Russia to undermine the United States.
2. I’ve been waiting all weekend…
3. At this point it has become their, and the Democrats, fault!…
4. “Dems in Puerto Rico as Shutdown hits day 24.”
As the News Blender reported on Sunday, House Democrats passed several funding bills to re-open the government, the Senate did not bring those bills to the Senate floor for vote, on Friday Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell adjourned the Senate, and returned to his home state of Kentucky.
According to new polling data, the President is shouldering the most blame for the government being shutdown.
The Hill reports that “the Congressional Hispanic Caucus campaign arm is bringing together the largest group of sitting lawmakers to ever visit a U.S. territory with a trip to Puerto Rico.”
According to the article the thirty plus member delegation led by Rep. Tony Cárdenas traveled to Puerto Rico for “the bold PAC convention and a summit hosted by the Latino Victory Fund.
Cárdenas told The Hill, they chose the island for this years convention to showcase Puerto Rico’s need as it continues to recover from 2017’s Hurricane Maria. The California Rep was asked about the optics of the trip during the shutdown to which he told The Hill, “we started planning this a year ago and just because there’s a Trump shutdown, it doesn’t mean that the world is going to stop. We appreciate and respect every single worker who’s being punished by Donald Trump. But at the same time there’s over 3.2 million Puerto Rican American citizens on this island that deserve for us to continue to do our job.”
It’s been reported that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was among those top democrats that traveled to Puerto Rico, but according to her office this is incorrect and that the Speaker has been in D.C., the whole weekend. This led to an almost apology from Fox News show host, Judge Jeanine Pirro, who on Saturday conducted a phone interview with President Trump, noting that Pelosi was in Puerto Rico.
5. Take two weeks off and come back rested. Chill!
As a reminder Donald Trump is the 45th President of the United States of America.
Trump: So I’ve been here all weekend. A lot of the Democrats were in Puerto Rico celebrating something. I don’t know maybe their celebrating the shutdown. We have a very big crisis, a humanitarian crisis on the border. Everybody knows it, they know it and many of them are saying ‘we agree with you.’ Many of them are calling and many of them are breaking. The Republicans are rock solid. We’ve got to take care of our border. Many of the people–they’re all going to get their money, many of the people that aren’t being paid right now are in total agreement with us. You saw the border patrol agents, you saw what was happening. They’re in total agreement with us. So we’ll see how it all goes. I will tell you this, we have a priority, it’s the safety of our nation. The Southern Border has been horrible for decades and it’s now because of the success of our country and it’s now at a level we can not put up with. The Democrats have to do something. We will need their votes, otherwise we can’t solve it without their votes. They now control the House let’s see if they can lead. I don’t know that they can lead, but we’re gonna soon find out.
For what it’s worth: Democrats took over the House January 3rd, 2019. The shutdown had already begun, when Republicans held all three branches of Government. Also, Democrats in the House passed several bills, that were blocked in the Senate from being voted on.
What would have been tweet 7 for Monday was a tweet in which the President wrote, “Getting ready to address the Farm Convention today in Nashville, Tennessee. Love our farmers, love Tennessee – a great combination! See you in a little while.”
The farm convention according to their website FB.Org, the convention is in, New Orleans, Louisiana.
