The Democrats were furious that Trump is planning to bypass all of their efforts to stop the border wall.
They have been doing everything in their power to prevent a border wall. It seems they’d rather see another govt shutdown than help secure our borders and keep Americans safe. Nancy Pelosi came out swinging when she heard the news. She threatened all gun owners that a Dem POTUS could do the same when it comes to gun control.
“You want to talk about a national emergency? Let’s talk about today, the one year anniversary of another manifestation of the epidemic of gun violence in America. That’s a national emergency.
Why don’t you declare that emergency, Mr. President? I wish you would. But a Democratic president can do that. Democratic president can declare emergencies as well. So, the precedent that the President is setting here is something that should be met with great unease and dismay by the Republicans.
And of course, we will respond accordingly when we review our options. First, we have to see what the President actually says.”

There is a big difference here that sadly the Dems can’t see. Most Americans are for building a wall and border security. If Trump were to call a national emergency no one’s rights are infringed upon.
Pelosi is proposing that a Democrat President could declare gun control a national emergency thereby infringing upon every American’s second amendment rights. The right that is there to stop govt from seizing too much power from the people. These are by no means the same thing. Trump is simply trying to secure our border to help law enforcement and enforce the laws of our land thereby keeping our people safe.
It’s scary that Pelosi thinks that these two issues are comparable. This just goes to show you how little she cares for Americans and our constitutional rights.
