Trump Calls Out ‘Virtually Every Democrat’ Over Border Wall… OUCH

Democrats in the Senate, keeping the federal government shut down, should not expect any season greetings from President Trump as his first Christmas Eve tweet was a stinger.

Meant for “virtually every Democrat” in Congress, Trump said these lawmakers previously praised and voted in favor of a border wall. It was only when Trump got into office, the president contended, that Democrats began to flip their views and argue against a border wall.

The president said: “Virtually every Democrat we are dealing with today strongly supported a Border Wall or Fence. It was only when I made it an important part of my campaign, because people and drugs were pouring into our Country unchecked, that they turned against it.”

The wall is “desperately needed,” Trump added.

Some Democrats in the Senate have indeed favored increased border security like a barrier, including Senate Democrat Leader Chuck Schumer and some other notables in the Democrat Party.

From Boston Globe, in 2017:

As a senator, Barack Obama once offered measured praise for the border control legislation that would become the basis for one of Donald Trump’s first acts as president.

“The bill before us will certainly do some good,” Obama said on the Senate floor in October 2006. He praised the legislation, saying it would provide “better fences and better security along our borders” and would “help stem some of the tide of illegal immigration in this country.”

Obama was talking about the Secure Fence Act of 2006, legislation authorizing a barrier along the southern border passed into law with the support of 26 Democratic senators including party leaders like Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, and Chuck Schumer.

Office of Management and Budget Director and incoming Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney similarly commented during a Fox News interview that Democrats still in office today supported border security.

“We want our priorities funded and one of the biggest priorities during the campaign was border security, keeping Americans safe, and part of that was a border wall,” he said, via Politifact.

“We still don’t understand why the Democrats are so wholeheartedly against it. They voted for it in 2006. Then-Sen. Obama voted for it. Sen. Schumer voted for it. Sen. Clinton voted for it. So we don’t understand why Democrats are now playing politics just because Donald Trump is in office.”

The Daily Signal reported in 2016 that many candidates who supported the 2006 bill were/are still in Congress, though some of these leaders have been voted out or retired in the last two years:

Then-Sens. Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and Hillary Clintonwere among the 26 Democrats who approved the bill. Supporters also included Sen. Chuck Schumer, who is set to take over leadership of the Senate for Democrats in 2016.

Other Democrats in the Senate who voted for the wall in 2006 are Sens. Barbara Boxer (Calif.), Sherrod Brown (Ohio—then in the House), Tom Carper (Del.), Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), Barbara Mikulski (Md.), Bill Nelson (Fla.), Debbie Stabenow (Mich.), and Ron Wyden (Ore.).

There are also a number of Democrat representatives still in the House who voted for the bill: Sanford Bishop (Ga.), Corrine Brown (Fla.), Michael Capuano (Mass.), Jim Cooper (Tenn.), Jim Costa (Calif.), Peter DeFazio (Ore.), Steve Israel (N.Y.), Ron Kind (Wis.), Daniel Lipinski (Ill.), Stephen Lynch (Mass.), Carolyn Maloney (N.Y.), Bill Pascrell Jr. (N.J.), Collin Peterson (Minn.), C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger (Md.), Tim Ryan (Ohio), and Adam Smith (Wash.).

Former Democrat Rep. Barney Frank and now-disgraced former Democrat Rep. Anthony Weiner also voted for the bill.

Check this out, from the Washington Post:

Trump praised the effectiveness of a “good old-fashioned wall,” in a tweet on Sunday.

“The only way to stop drugs, gangs, human trafficking, criminal elements and much else from coming into our Country is with a Wall or Barrier,” Trump tweeted. “Drones and all of the rest are wonderful and lots of fun, but it is only a good old-fashioned Wall that works!”

And, from the Washington Examiner:

Trump’s first tweet of the day came on the second day of the partial government shutdown after Congress missed a midnight deadline on Friday to reach a compromise with the White House.

Lawmakers have predicted that the shutdown could last past Christmas, and incoming acting White House chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said the government cold remain shuttered into 2019.

Trump was supposed to head to Mar-a-Lago for Christmas, but he announced Friday he would stay due to the shutdown. On Sunday, he said the trip to Florida was canceled for Christmas.

There were no public events on the president’s schedule Saturday, though Trump did have lunch with conservative leaders at the White House to discuss border security. The president made no active statements after the meeting, and the White House provided no readout.
