Schumer, Pelosi: Hope Trump Has ‘Learned His Lesson’ on Border Funding

WASHINGTON, DC - FEBRUARY 27: Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) (L) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) deliver a 'prebuttal' to President Donald Trump's upcoming address to a joint session of Congress at the National Press Club February 27, 2017 in Washington, DC.

The Democrats’ leaders in the House and Senate bluntly warned they hoped President Donald Trump “learned his lesson” ahead of an expected request for $8.6 billion to build a long-promised border wall.

In a joint statement, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., reminded Trump of his prior defeat in the funding war with Congress.

“Congress refused to fund his wall and he was forced to admit defeat and reopen the government,” the pair wrote about a chaotic month-long government shutdown from late 2018 into 2019.  “The same thing will repeat itself if he tries this again. We hope he learned his lesson.

“President Trump hurt millions of Americans and caused widespread chaos when he recklessly shut down the government to try to get his expensive and ineffective wall, which he promised would be paid for by Mexico,” the Democratic leaders said, adding:

“At a time when our country faces challenges about jobs for the future, this money would better be spent on rebuilding America, and on education and workforce development for jobs for the 21st Century.”

The statement positions Congress for a contentious negotiation on the president’s fiscal 2020 budget proposal, which is set to be released Monday, The Hill reported.

Trump will request $8.6 billion for barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border, pulling $5 billion from the Department of Homeland Security budget and $3.6 billion from the military construction budget at the Pentagon. The budget proposal also would include $3.6 million in military construction funding to help fund projects affected by the wall.

  1. I was once a democrat loved President Kennedy, I will never ever vote Democrat ever again in my life . They are not a party they are a gang of corrupted misfits, their greed and disgusting behavior and their choice of people in congress is appalling

    • Claudia, your impassioned thoughts on what has become of the Democrat party is noteworthy because of its truth. Kudos to you for saying what needs to be said about the demise of the Democrat party.

    • same for me i once was a dem, never again, look what they have done, put muslims in our govt, pass abortion, first degree murder , they should go to jail, JFK put men on the moon, Obuma put men and perverts in the ladies bathroom, Go Trump 2020 clean the swampies out.v

    • You just described the republicans. Trump can’t clean the swamp, he just filled it up with rubes like him. What about broken promises. He claims he has to keep the promise of the border wall, yet his promise to leave Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid alone were empty promises because he put them in his budget to get rid of all of it. Promises made, promises kept? Big joke, the guy has been a pathological liar all of his life and he’s not about to change now. Can’t believe a word that comes out of his filthy mouth.

      • Your democrats is giving all our social security to all ILLEGALS
        Plus they want them to vote and change the voting age to 16 yrs. Old.Ig you want a socialist government GO TO North korea or china..All of the old democrats are all rich they act like they are poor.ha ha ha.whay a f – – king joke.dunb as

      • you Pat Hanson, are a typical liberal denier and liar. If it were not for the Democratic Socialist Party, we would have the wall. The Democrats are for killing babies and attempting to make our country a welfare state.

      • Pat hansen,
        Don’t know you and sure you are likely a decent person but why is it when folks in your thinking circles speak all that comes out is emotional jibberish with absolutely no facts to support your statements. Educate yourself with more than one source. There is nothing wrong with being ignorant but its not ok to be ok with being ignorant.

  2. The Matter Is Not As Matter Of Fact As Schumer And Pelosi Are Trying To Portray The Situation They Haven’t Stopped The President Building The Wall. Don’t Let These Two Crooks Fool You The Matter Is Not An Done Deal As These Two Of The American People’s Most Dangerous Enemies Would Have Them Believe. It’s Disgraceful That These People Who Are So Threatening To This country And It’s Citizens Still Hold Positions In Our Government Let Alone Allowed To Remain Free. It’s Time To Start Locking Up And Executing These Dangerous And Determined Traitors Before This Country Ends Up Like Europe.

    • Those two FLAKES care more about ILLEGALS than they do about the CITIZENS of the US, they are as PHONY as a THREE DOLLAR BILL.

      • So true, these socialist creeps should open their homes to some of these illigals, maybe they would get one of the diseases that came with these illigals. The people who keep them in office deserve to have the consequences that they bring.

    • scumbager and palosi are traitors to America, they should be investigated ASAP, both of them never had a job but in Politics yet they are worth millions, and they us to look at Trump’s tax returns, they should be stripped of their power , they are undermining our Country.

  3. How do they keep getting in office? Nancy needs to retire and go to a nursing home. Ocasio-Cortez has taken over Nancy’s speaker position, so she’s not needed.

  4. There are a few ways to fix this problems; One way is to have a recall vote on members of Congress just as they have a recall vote on state governors. Another way is to let the American taxpayers vote on weather we should build a wall on our borders. Another way is for every American that opposes Congresses unlawful redistribution of taxpayer money from Americans to illegals and to foreign governments that say “Death to America” is to go on strike. If every American trash collector, Walmart employee, gas station worker, truck driver, airplane pilot, school teacher, assembly line worker, car manufacturer and any and all people that pay taxes would go on strike to remind the government that they work for us, not we for them or for non-citizens, then maybe they would do the right thing. I would sacrifice a few weeks or months of comfort to get this country back on the right track. We the people of the United States of America ordained and established the Constitution not we the people of Congress or people of the world.

  5. Pelosi and Schemer should receive a cigarette and a blindfold. These two are traitors to our country. There are another 533 traitors at large. Patriots how long will we put up with this nonsense??

    • “Patriots how long will we put up with this nonsense??”

      Truth is a very powerful weapon against deceit and I am sensing it coming alive. God bless, save, and expose9C5Z those who would destroy our Constitutional Republic!

  6. They need to realize they don’t run the WH, they don’t run the president and they certainly don’t run us. It would serve them right if people on the border built their own walls. Putting illegals before the American people is going to stop if we have to froce the issue.

  7. He probably has. If he believed he had an unbiased Media and a GOP that would stand behind him he was wrong, only his base will stand behind him, that and the few actual Conservatives in the GOP. Most in Congress have one driving conviction, get re-elected no matter what must be done.

    • Yes like cheating @the ballot box.with ILLEGALS ,dead people,old people they help fill out thete ballots.So on and so on.It will never stop.They are cheats liars and Scumb bag treasonous .

  8. I hope the America People have learned their lesson and will NEVER vote for Chuckle and Nancy agin or any other Democrat. None of them love America or the American People.

  9. Anyone every looked closely at Nervous Nancy’s district? It is the smallest congressional district outside of New York City, by area, consisting solely of the City and County of San Francisco. The city is too expensive for most people to live in. A person needs to make a minimum of $95,000 to even be considered “Middle Class”. On many streets are piles of refuse, used needles and human feces from all the homeless, the drug addicts and so forth. The “beautiful city by the bay” is no more. It has become a festering sore by the bay.

    And who represents this eyesore by the bay? Nervous Nancy Pelosi, who somehow now thinks shes the Queen of America, alongside he who thinks he is the king, Chuck Shumer, who cares more for the illegals crossing our southern border over the interests and needs of the people of the state of New York. The illegals, the terrorists, the despots and dictators of the world are sitting upright in their chairs, anxious to see these two clowns topple the United States into some socialist third world country. Add the three freshman bimbo’s, AOC and her two muslim cohorts and conservatives need to be ready with either powder dry, locked and loaded or with buckets of popcorn, depending on the way the wind ends up blowing. We’re either going to see a civil war kick off or we’re going to be highly entertained by a do-nothing congress this term.

  10. If schumer or pelosi had a daughter raped or killed by one of these illegals, i bet within 24 hours they would have the work started to build the wall.

  11. Pelosi has an adult daughter in her 40s. Believe me, no one, not even a chook felon on death row, would care to assault her.

  12. Hopefully the President has t least learned that the GOP will —- him any chance they can get. He is all alone-but he as th People behind him.

    • speak for yourself. most o the american people are NOT behind him He is a crook, a conman,a liar and tax dodger, draft dodger. Wonderful characteriscs for the WH.

  13. Chuck you and Nanny the goat need to retire like about 20 years ago. Trump just keeps outwitting them.. I loved it when Nanny goat and all her buds were on the bus headed for the airport for an expensive all taxpayer paid junket on military aircraft to see the Pope and sight see around Europe got returned and cancelled by the President. No free booze, fancy hotels and gourmet restaurants for that bunch of free loaders. Meanwhile–President Trump just keeps on working 24 -7 for us and getting things done for the USA and is building the wall constantly in spite of everything the dumbocrat Marxists throw in his path.

  14. Shumucker and Pelosit do not get it–It is ‘we the people’, the taxpayers who are paying for their sins…remember, this why we left England-“taxation without representation” -this is why we fought against the British royalty-Humm-are we ready for the French Revolution yet? the French Royalty sat their booties on the throne way up there and told the French people…heck!—then came the beheading –when the taxpayers had enough they will rise again, and again, again–watvch NY get broke…will we be paying into their mistakes?
