President Trump gave House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi an education regarding congressional procedures Tuesday; informing the top Democrat that he needs at least ten liberal Senators to vote alongside the GOP to pass immigration reform.
The Commander-in-Chief was speaking alongside Mike Pence, Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer in a heated meeting at the White House; telling the liberal leaders why he needs their support to advance his border wall.

“You have the White House, you have the Senate… you have the votes. You should pass it now,” said Pelosi.
“No, we don’t have the votes Nancy because in the Senate we need 60 votes. I can’t get it passed in the House if it’s not going to pass in the Senate. I don’t want to waste time,” said Trump.

FIREWORKS: Ben Carson SHUTS DOWN Maxine Waters Over Puerto Rican Recovery
Dr. Ben Carson shut-down hyper-liberal Congresswoman Maxine Waters on Thursday, after the left-wing lawmaker tried to convince the HUD Secretary to denounce President Trump’s hurricane recovery efforts in Puerto Rico.
Dr. Carson was speaking before the House Committee on Financial Services when the firebrand legislator pounced; pressing the Secretary and staunch Trump supporter over tweets the President made earlier this week.
“This morning, Trump threatened to abandon Puerto Rico recovery efforts. President Trump served notice Thursday that he may pull back federal relief workers from Puerto Rico, effectively threatening to abandon a US territory amid a staggering humanitarian crisis in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria […] Do you agree with the President?” asked Waters.
“I certainly agree that Puerto Rico is a very important territory, and the people from Puerto Rico have contributed greatly to the culture of America,” fired-back Carson.
“I’m not talking about that. What I’m talking about is these tweets,” she pressed.
“I have no intention of abandoning Puerto Rico, they’re a very important part of who we are,” said the Housing Secretary. “Our job is to make sure that we take care of a disaster that has occurred. Of course, it should not be abandoned.”
“There’s no question that there have been a lot of difficulties in Puerto Rico,” added Carson.

FIREWORKS: CNN’s Jake Tapper UNLOADS on Ellison’s Ties to ‘BIGOTED’ Farrakhan
CNN’s Jake Tapper didn’t hold back when discussing President Trump’s ‘travel ban’ with DNC Deputy Keith Ellison Tuesday, unloading on the hypocritical legislator’s deep ties to ‘bigoted’ Louis Farrakhan.
Ellison was attacking the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the revised immigration guidelines when Tapper pointed out the lawmaker’s blatant hypocrisy; saying “You’ve been decrying President Trump’s bigotry; obviously, you used to follow somebody who continually expressed sexist, anti-LGBTQ, and anti-Semitic bigotry, Louis Farrakhan.”
“Going back to the false equivalency, I don’t have any support for what the individual you just mentioned stands for, nor do I agree with Trump’s bigotry either,” Ellison said. “Any time somebody tries to say that something is unfair and bigoted, if you are going to say, ‘Well, one time you sort of said something or somebody said you said something, and then no one can complain about bigotry,” Ellison fired-back.
