Ted Cruz has Trump’s back, blames Schumer for Shutdown
It’s clear that the Democrats want to obstruct the progress of this administration. But that’s just politics. And politics is a rough sport to play so you have to choose your teammates carefully.
Ted Cruz got another one right today when he backed up our President and blamed the Government Shutdown on Chuck Schumer.
Even thought Trump has proudly said he will own the shutdown if it means protecting the safety of Americans, the truth is the Democrats refusal to keep Americans safe is what shut down our Governement.
And Ted knows it.
Here’s Chuck Schumer stating his case on the Senate Floor:
Here’s what Ted had to say about that.
The Washington Times:
Sen. Ted Cruz says it will be “extreme” Democrats who rejected a single “penny” for border security who are to blame if the federal government shuts down.
The Texas Republican told reporters on Friday that a “Schumer shutdown” will occur if the New York senator and his allies reject any compromise on border security funding.
“The president was unequivocal this morning,” Mr. Cruz told reporters. “If Chuck Schumer and the Democrats adopt an extreme line, that they’re not willing to give a penny for border security, then Schumer will go forward and shut the government down. That would be an unfortunate thing.”
House lawmakers approved a spending bill Thursday night with $5.7 billion in border security funding.
Senate Democrats, however, have vowed to deny all funding related to a wall separating the U.S. with Mexico.
“So, President Trump, you will not get your wall,” Mr. Schumer said while speaking before the Senate on Friday. “Abandon your shutdown strategy. You’re not getting the wall today, next week, or on January 3 when Democrats take control of the House.”
