Trump: ‘There Is Nothing Else That Will Work’

President Trump has drawn the line and now sits in the Oval Office, ready and waiting for Democrat lawmakers in the Senate to lift their filibuster and pass government funding.

Lawmakers are filibustering a vote on the recently-passed House funding proposal because it includes over $5 billion for the construction of a new border wall.

Trump wants a wall, Democrats do not, and the resulting standstill has caused the government to shut down.

As reluctant Democrats are trying to stick to their guns, Trump took to social media to sow doubt that their effort will be triumphant.

In a series of posts, Trump said “nothing else” will work to secure the border as effective as a wall.

“The Democrats are trying to belittle the concept of a Wall, calling it old-fashioned. The fact is there is nothing else’s that will work, and that has been true for thousands of years,” Trump wrote on Twitter Friday morning. “It’s like the wheel, there is nothing better.”

He added: “Properly designed and built Walls work, and the Democrats are lying when they say they don’t. In Israel, the Wall is 99.9% successful. Will not be any different on our Southern Border! Hundreds of $Billions saved!”

“Senator Mitch McConnell should fight for the Wall and Border Security as hard as he fought for anything,” Trump said in another Friday tweet. “He will need Democrat votes, but as shown in the House, good things happen. If enough Dems don’t vote, it will be a Democrat Shutdown! House Republicans were great yesterday!”

The president said House Republicans should be “very proud of themselves” for supporting the wall amid the Senate’s uncertainty.

“No matter what happens today in the Senate, Republican House Members should be very proud of themselves,” Trump praised. “They flew back to Washington from all parts of the World in order to vote for Border Security and the Wall. Not one Democrat voted yes, and we won big. I am very proud of you!”

Trump then said the pressure was entirely on the Senate, promising to keep the government closed until they passed the House version of the government funding bill.

He said: “The Democrats, whose votes we need in the Senate, will probably vote against Border Security and the Wall even though they know it is DESPERATELY NEEDED. If the Dems vote no, there will be a shutdown that will last for a very long time. People don’t want Open Borders and Crime!”

“Shutdown today if Democrats do not vote for Border Security!” Trump even added on Twitter.

“Mitch, use the Nuclear Option and get it done! Our Country is counting on you!” Trump added.

And, in a final tweet, “The Democrats now own the shutdown!”

After the Senate failed to approve of the House-passed bill, the government shut down and, as USA Today reports, the shutdown affects the Agriculture, Commerce, Justice, Homeland Security, Interior, State, Transportation, Treasury and Housing and Urban Development Departments.
