Trump’s lies constantly, but this is the most ridiculous one in his pitiful life. It includes two humongous lies. One, federal employees have not encouraged Trump to keep the government shutdown. Two, he is too ignorant to realize that millions of government workers are Democrats and hate the orange man.
“But many of those workers have said to me and communicated, stay out until you get the funding for the wall. These federal workers want the wall. The only one that doesn’t want the wall are the Democrats, because they don’t mind open borders, but open borders mean massive amounts of crime,” he said.
There is one final and important lie in his statement. Democrats offered $1.6 billion for added border security but not for his wall. At first he agreed to keep the government open until February 8th, but after criticism from right-wing extremists, he reneged.
Immigration is complicated. None of the previous situations include a plan to eliminate more than 50 percent of illegal immigration which arrives in America with visitor’s visas on commercial aircraft and never leave. The right-wing is dominated by morons.
As for Trump’s attitude, he cannot relate to real Americans. His life has been filled with luxury and privilege and cannot and does not want to understand the difficulty most Americans struggle with on a daily basis. To claim that government employees want Trump to be happy, while their families struggle to survive is the most ludicrous thing any man or woman has ever said.
The most recent poll reveals that 79 percent of all Americans are not interested in the construction of Trump’s folly.
