After the Democrats’ drubbing in the 2016 election, one would have thought they would be reluctant to oppose Donald Trump on his signature issue of securing America’s southern border.
The public wants it done, and made Mr. Trump president to do that.
In addition, congressional Democrats had previously voted to build the wall.
But now, Democratic legislators are saying they’ll shut down the government, rather than approve funding for this purpose. Perhaps that’s in part because they know the Republican leadership on Capitol Hill doesn’t want to see Mr. Trump’s promise fulfilled, either.
I say, bring it on. Republicans who help Democrats undermine our national security should be primary-ed. And Democrats beholden to government labor unions must be put on notice that federal employees identified as “non-essential” in case of governmental shut-down will be the first fired when budget cuts have to be made.
