It’s done! McConnell finally did this over border wall! big names shaking in fear. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell accused Democrats of operating out of “political spite” by refusing to negotiate with President Trump on border and t h r e a t e n i n g to block the Senate from considering any legislation until the end of the partial government shutdown.
McConnell spoke on the Senate floor hours before Trump was to address the nation from the Oval Office about his long-promised border wall. McConnell rattled off a list of prominent Democrats, including Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer who he said had previously backed border legislation with enthusiasm in 2006.
President Trump promised the wall on nearly every campaign visit he made in 2016 and 2018. He believes in a promise made, a promise kept.
