TRUMP GOES NUCLEAR: The President Tells GOP to 'GO NUCLEAR’ On Border Wall

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.02.18

President Trump doubled-down on his all-out war with liberal lawmakers over immigration policy this week; demanding GOP Senators go “nuclear” and change congressional rules to fully fund his proposed border wall.

The President unloaded on the left-wing legislators on social media Monday morning, saying the GOP “must go to Nuclear option to pass tough laws now.”

“Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. ‘Caravans’ coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!” tweeted Trump.

“Congress must immediately pass Border Legislation, use Nuclear Option if necessary, to stop the massive inflow of Drugs and People. Border Patrol Agents (and ICE) are GREAT, but the weak Dem laws don’t allow them to do their job. Act now Congress, our country is being stolen!” he added.

The so-called “nuclear option” would amend Senate procedural rules; allowing a simple 50-vote majority to pass legislation instead of the currently required 60-vote “super majority” that permits the minority party to effectively hold-up bills indefinitely.

CALIFORNIA CHAOS: Federal Judge SIDES WITH TRUMP on Border Wall Construction

President Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico got one step closer to construction this week, with a federal judge ruling against environmental activists and the state of California who challenged the physical barrier; claiming the “wall” would severely harm the region’s ecosystem.

US District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel ruled in favor of the Trump administration; swiping down a case that claimed a “border wall” would seriously violate existing environmental protection laws.

The President hailed the court’s decision on social media Wednesday morning, writing “I have decided that sections of the Wall that California wants built NOW will not be built until the whole Wall is approved. Big victory yesterday with ruling from the courts that allows us to proceed. OUR COUNTRY MUST HAVE BORDER SECURITY!”

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra slammed the court’s ruling, accusing the Trump administration of committing “federal overreach.”

“A medieval wall along the U.S.-Mexico border simply does not belong in the 21st century,” Becerra said.

CALIFORNIA CHAOS: GOP Rep. Proposes 'BORDER WALL' Between California and Arizona

A Republican congresswoman from Arizona proposed the construction of a “border wall” between her state and California; citing the ongoing chaos caused by the Golden State’s ‘sanctuary city’ policies and soaring crime rates.

Rep. Martha McSally made her surprising remarks while speaking at a round-table discussion at the White House Tuesday, saying Arizona residents need to protect themselves from California’s “dangerous policies.”

“As we look in Arizona, we often look into the dangers of the southern border,” said the congresswoman. “But if these dangerous policies continue out of California, we might need to build a wall between California and Arizona as well to keep these dangerous criminals out of our state.”

“[They can’t] provide sanctuary for these criminals and think that it’s only impacting California dangerously,” she added.

The state’s outrageous ‘sanctuary city’ policies were thrust into the national headlines again this week, when a small southern California town voted to officially reject the “unconstitutional” guidelines that prohibit law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration agents.
