Trump Wants Senate To Go ‘Nuclear’ To Pass Border Wall Funding
President Donald Trump urged the U.S. Senate to change its rules Monday in order to pass funding for his proposed wall along the US-Mexico border.
…Congress must immediately pass Border Legislation, use Nuclear Option if necessary, to stop the massive inflow of Drugs and People. Border Patrol Agents (and ICE) are GREAT, but the weak Dem laws don’t allow them to do their job. Act now Congress, our country is being stolen!

Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. “Caravans” coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders echoed Trump’s call in a Monday morning interview on Fox and Friends saying “I hope Republicans do, and follow the president’s lead.”
“We have influx of drugs and gang members coming across from Mexico but through Mexico,” Sanders continued. “They need to step up and do more.”
“Congress has to step up and do more, making sure we do everything we can to protect the people of this country. That is what the president is committed to doing.”
