Schumer: Trump Doesn't Have The Votes To Get The Wall In Any Form


CHUCK SCHUMER: President Trump should understand, there are not the votes for the wall in the House or in the Senate. He is not going to get the wall in any form. even the House, which is a majority Republican, they don't have the votes for his $5 billion wall plan. In fact, Ryan, afraid of what is going to happen, sent all the House home until Wednesday night, two days before the shutdown. They certainly don't have the votes in the Senate.

We Democrats, Leader Pelosi and I, offered the president two options as to how to avoid a shutdown, and we should not let a temper tantrum, threats, push us in the direction of doing something that everybody, even our Republican colleagues know is wrong...

They should join us in one of these two proposals which would get more than enough votes passed and avoid a shutdown. If the president wants to debate the wall next year, he can. I don't think he'll get it. But he shouldn't use innocent workers as a hostage for his temper tantrum to sort of throw a bone to his base.
