Hysterically bad response from these two. Trump used numbers and anecdotes. These two spent the majority of their speech telling us we should feel bad about the government shutdown. Pelosi and Schumer are nothing more than snake oil salesman and neither one of them knows how to tell the truth. These two clowns desire the destruction of our nation as well as chains placed on every American. Here is what the two spewed:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said in a televised address on Tuesday night that President Donald Trump was “manufacturing a crisis” over his fight to get $5.7 billion in border security funding.
Pelosi and Schumer rebutted President Trump’s televised address on Tuesday night, contending that President Trump has harmed thousands of Americans with his government shutdown. The Democrat leaders said that a border wall along the southern border is both “expensive” and “ineffective.”
Pelosi said in reaction to Trump’s speech, “Sadly, much of what we heard from President Trump during this senseless shutdown has been misinformation and even malice,” Breitbart reports.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Tuesday night that President Trump used his prime-time Oval Office address to “manufacture a crisis, stoke fear, and divert attention from the turmoil in his Administration.”
“The President of the United States – having failed to get Mexico to pay for his ineffective, unnecessary border wall, and unable to convince the Congress or the American people to foot the bill – has shut down the government,” Schumer said in a response delivered jointly with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. “American democracy doesn’t work that way. We don’t govern by temper tantrum.”
“We can re-open the government and continue to work through disagreements about policy,” Schumer said. “We can secure our border without an expensive, ineffective wall. And, we can welcome legal immigrants and refugees without compromising safety and security. The symbol of America should be the Statue of Liberty, not a thirty-foot wall.”
In her remarks, Pelosi said the president’s statements during the partial shutdown have been “full of misinformation and even malice,” and accused the administration of practicing “cruel and counterproductive policies” at the southern border.
“The fact is: the women and children at the border are not a security threat, they are a humanitarian challenge,” said Pelosi, adding that “President Trump must stop holding the American people hostage, must stop manufacturing a crisis, and must re-open the government.”
