It is pretty ironic that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is accusing Donald Trump of the very thing she is actually doing.
Earlier today, Pelosi released a statement blasting the President for threatening our “close friend and neighbor” Mexico with tariffs, stating, “Threats and temper tantrums are no way to negotiate foreign policy.”
You Couldn’t Get It Done!
President Trump did what Congress could not do for decades.
While the crisis at the southern border has grown considerably during the Trump administration, illegal immigration has been a very real problem in this country for decades.
Pelosi, Schumer, and a significant portion of their fellow Democrats, as well as Republicans, have all been in office while this has been taking place.
Even though they have had years and years to address this situation, they have never done anything close to what Trump accomplished by threatening tariffs against Mexico.
Instead of applauding the achievement, however, Democrats cannot criticize Trump quick enough.
With Friends Like That…
The reason Mexico has never addressed the issue is that the United States has never shown enough of a backbone to demand it take action.
Well, at least that was the case before Trump took office.
Our country was being overwhelmed with illegal immigrants, with the last three months setting records.
Smugglers are trafficking children across the border, huge amounts of drugs are coming in, women are being trafficked, diseases are coming into the country, yet Congress has done nothing to fix the problem.
Even more bothersome is the fact our “close friend and neighbor to the south” did nothing about it.
As the saying goes, with friends like that, who needs enemies?
Pelosi did her best to make it sound as though the Trump administration did something wrong here.
She stated, “Congress will continue to hold the Trump administration accountable for its failures to address the humanitarian situation at our southern border.
“President Trump must stop sabotaging good-faith, constructive, and bipartisan efforts in Congress to address this complex problem in a humane manner that honors and respects our most cherished national values.”
Nancy, please tell us what bipartisan efforts have been made.
The only legislation Democrats have backed has been to provide amnesty for illegal immigrants.
Getting a handful of Republicans on board with a partisan bill is hardly a joint effort.
One of the best ways to shut down the humanitarian crisis it to take access away from the human traffickers.
If they cannot get the children and women into the United States to sell, they are in, in essence, out of business.
She says she is going to hold Trump accountable, but who is holding Congress accountable?
There are but a few members of Congress, and I mean on both sides of the aisle, that are worth their salt right now.
Most of them are nothing more than talking heads trying to justify their salary when they actually accomplish very little.
President Trump made a fool out of both sides of the aisle by making this happen and they are not happy about it.
At least Republicans have been willing to swallow their pride and admit the tariffs worked.
Otherwise, Pelosi and the rest of these frauds would have allowed this crisis to go on forever.
