IMHO we finally have a POTUS that will get us back on the right track. We survived the community organizer but I am not optimistic that he will just go away and enjoy his ill-gotten wealth.

"they" have a laundry list...all Trump wants is what he promised us and the main reason he was elected. They all voted FOR the wall before....and if it was still oblamer as POTUS, he;d get the money.

73% of this country agrees that illegal immigration is draining our resources, including 30 something % of the left. The ONLY reason they refuse to negotiate (which is the way things are normally done) is because they cannot let Trump get a win....period.

it is curious that Trump didn't use this type of urgency before the dems took control of the house.
why did he wait until they controlled the spending?

He had a great offer on the table a year ago......a pathway to citizenship for 1.5 mil dreamers (oblamers illegal DACA program) and wall money...but needed an unatainable 60 votes in the senate.

Remember this....anytime the left accuses the right ( POTUS playing politics) of something, you can bet a lung that the left themselves are guilty of it.
