A while ago, Trump said he would approve measures to keep the government running AND provide funding for his wall through national emergency funding. Well you can’t have your cake and eat it too Trump. Putting aside how dictator-like this entire situation is, Trump will not even get it to pass. To get this Maduro-legislation, Trump would need 51 votes in the Senate to get it to pass. So far, Senators Tillis and Collins both said they wouldn’t vote for it. Assuming the 47 Democrats including the two independents who caucus with Democrats vote against it, that means only one more Republican needs to defect for it to get 50 votes and not pass.
Trump’s dictator antics are once again fooled by the power of Democracy. I cannot wait to get this maniac out of office.
