Trump Unleashes Blistering Rant On Government Shutdown, Pushes GOP To Go For Nuclear Option
Donald Trump has been going insane since the government shutdown, mostly because the shutdown meant he might not be able to make it to his anniversary party at one of his golf clubs – a party in which he was going to make millions of dollars off his presidency.
With a clear damper being put on Trump’s festivities for his disastrous one year anniversary in the White House, Trump has been lashing out at everyone else to cover up for the fact that his lack of ‘leadership’ is solely responsible for this mess. On the second day of the government shutdown, Trump tweeted that if the “stalemate continues”, Republicans should go for the “nuclear option”. Trump tweeted:
Great to see how hard Republicans are fighting for our Military and Safety at the Border. The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked. If stalemate continues, Republicans should go to 51% (Nuclear Option) and vote on real, long term budget, no C.R.’s!”
Negotiations are still underway to see if an agreement can be reached, but there still has not been any consensus on a way forward.
Meanwhile, Trump continues attacking Democrats, who Trump previously referred to as “obstructionist losers”, for ruining all his fun. Yesterday, the Trump campaign released an ad saying that Democrats “who stand in our way [on immigration] will be complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants.”
Trump can blame everyone else all he wants (and he does), but he cannot escape the truth. He is President of the United States, and at the end of the day he is responsible for the country’s failures. While it’s clear that Trump has no intention of doing his actual job as POTUS, America will rightfully blame him for the country’s downfalls regardless of how little he acts like a real president.
