As the debates over border security and immigration rage on, the President is starting to get fed up with inaction by certain lawmakers.
President Donald J. Trump is ratcheting up his rhetoric and calling out do-nothing Democrats for not taking any action on Republican-backed bills that need the votes of a hand full of Democrats to pass.
Republicans have drafted up immigration proposals that will be headed to a vote, but the President remains skeptical the Democrats will do anything but obstruct.
“We need two to tango,” Trump said during a Cabinet meeting, citing the Democratic filibuster in the Senate that was blocking any legislation from moving forward.
The president called for a new effort on immigration, inviting them to the White House to discuss more details with this problem the country has faced for 50 years.
“They don’t care about the children. They don’t care about the injury. They don’t care about the problems. All they do is obstruct,” Trump said about the current crisis at the border.
Not only has the President and his Administration been falsely blamed for the current immigration debacle, it’s clear the Republicans and the Trump administration are the only people in Washington D.C. trying to fix it.
Many high-ranking Democrats have been asked what they’re going to do about fixing the immigration problem and most have simply punted, saying “let’s just keep the focus on Trump.”
The midterm elections are right around the corner and immigration will be a very hot topic going into November. If Democrats fail to act and assist Republicans in fixing this immigration mess, they could be headed for major trouble come election day.
The President has not held back in his public lashing of Democrats for their obstruction. He is trying to make it well know that he and Republicans are really trying to help people and Democrats are blocking to try and steal votes.
