Donald Trump Just Said Only “Criminals” Don’t Like the Wall. Actually, a Majority of Americans Don’t.

Mod: Trump claims to speak on behalf of a majority of the people. He usually doesn't. Often it is only for a distinct minority, such as with his border wall.

Donald Trump Just Said Only “Criminals” Don’t Like the Wall - Actually, a Majority of Americans Don’t (Mother Jones link): On Saturday morning, President Trump, as he is wont to do, took to Twitter to decry his typical targets: “fake” news, the Democrats, and CNN, among other presumed enemies. He also decided to label a majority of Americans criminals.

An NPR, PBS News Hour, and Marist poll taken in late November and early December showed that 69 percent of Americans don’t see the wall as a priority. A Harvard CAPS/Harris poll conducted for The Hill in late December showed that 56 percent of Americans oppose Trump’s border wall, with 58 percent saying the president should withdraw his demand for its funding.

Meanwhile, a Reuters/Ipsos poll found that just 35 percent of those surveyed supported including money for the border wall in a congressional spending bill, and a Quinnipiac poll published December 18 found that 54 percent of American voters oppose it and say it’s not necessary to improving border security.

That’s a whole lot of American drug dealers, human traffickers, and criminals.

Adam Schiff lays it out for McConnell: Put country before loyalty to POTUS


Mod: Mitch McConnell is suspected of having taken a lot of money from the Russians (link). Schiff knows this, which makes his tweet all the more effective.

  10. Because I voted Republican in the primary, I get "surveys" to respond to questions about what I think of the wall, what kind of job Trump is doing
    If I respond negatively, it doesnt go through.

  13. Donald Trump is Less Popular Than Nancy Pelosi for the First Time in His Presidency

    Poll of the week: A Gallup poll out this week finds that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has a favorable rating of 38% and an unfavorable rating of 48%. That's bad enough for a net favorability rating of -10 points.

    The same poll also showed that President Donald Trump's favorable rating is 40% to an unfavorable rating of 58%. That means his net favorability rating is -18 points.

    What's the point: The leading figures in the US government right now are not popular. For the first time during Trump's presidency, though, Trump is more disliked than Pelosi.

    Fox's Chris Wallace Repeatedly Nails Sarah Sanders on Bogus Border Terror Threat Claims

    https://www.mediaite.com/tv/foxs-chris-wallace-repeatedly-nails-sarah-sanders-on-bogus-border-terror-threat-claims/

    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders ran into a buzzsaw Sunday morning when Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace challenged the Trump administration’s repeated false claims about terrorism and the southwestern border of the United States.

    On this week’s edition of Fox News Sunday, Sanders told Wallace that President Trump meant what he said when he declared that he would keep the government shut down for “years” if necessary, in order to secure funding for his border wall.

    But then, Wallace attacked a central theme of Trump’s push for a wall, the lie that tons of terrorists are streaming over the border with Mexico. He played a clip of Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen claiming, at this week’s Rose Garden press conference, that “CBP has stopped over 3,000 what we call special interest aliens trying to come into the country on the southern border. Those are aliens who the Intel community has identified are of concern.”

    “But special interest aliens are just people who have come from countries that have ever produced a terrorist, they’re not terrorists themselves,” Wallace said, and added that “the state department says, quote, ‘there were no credible evidence of any terrorist coming across the border from Mexico,'” citing a report that was released in September.

    “Airports. The state department says there hasn’t been any terrorists found coming across the southern border,” Wallace said.

    “It’s by air it’s by land it’s by sea, it’s all of the above,” Sanders said, “but one thing that you’re forgetting is at the most vulnerable point of entry that we have into this country is our southern border. You have to protect it, and the more and more that individuals know that…”

    “But they’re not coming across the southern border, Sarah, they’re coming and they’re being stopped at airports,” Wallace interrupted, once again.

  18. I like the Wall because it will help enforce our laws. Other countries enforce their immigration laws and so should the United States. When I was a child, I visited my aunt’s home in Nogales Arizona. Her fence was the US border with Mexico. Build the wall and enforce our laws. Deport all who are here illegally, put an end to this anchor baby nonsense, and as far as the DACA people, let them apply for citizenship but receive no financial assistance for college. Anyone who wishes to comment on my post.....feel free to discuss my points. Just see if you can do it without calling me names. Let’s have an exchange of ideas, not name calling which is so juvenile.

    1. You’re working with bad information. Illegal immigration numbers are a quarter of what they were when Bush II was in office. Your entire message is the product of a race based propaganda campaign designed to rally people to Trump’s base. I am certain you will be offended by the implications of my comment, but I honestly don’t care. Get lost.

    10. The US enforces its immigration laws, foo'. Come here illegally and get caught, you get deported. Ask the record numbers of people who got deported under the Obama Administration.

      If someone comes to our border and requests asylum, they have a RIGHT to do so. There is no reason to separate families and put them in jails while the artificially lengthy asylum process plays out. (Yes, I get that you don't believe they're put in jails, but I doubt you ever search Expedia to get a good deal on such lovely facilities for you and your family.)

      For decades asylum seekers have been able to live in the US pending a decisions on their applications. They have uniformly had a lower crime rate than US citizens.

      Sorry that Trump and FoxNews have stimulated your amygdala, but you can put your shotgun and prejudices away. We'll protect fearful little you. And if you're concerned about asylum seekers and the undocumented successfully competing against you for jobs, maybe you should have better educated yourself.

      Why don't you focus on the real source of the problem you perceive, namely, corporations, such as Trump National, and other employers who illegally hire undocumented workers.

      Going after the employers is not only a more efficient way to deal with illegal hiring because it's far easier to prosecute one than many, but more importantly if you eliminate those who hire undocumented workers, you reduce the incentive to come here illegally, i.e. no jobs. Of course, that would put a damper on employers' ability to pay low wages to those over whom they have substantial leverage (e.g. threaten deportation to those who speak up), while simultaneously undercutting the wages of citizens.

      Of course, the GOP doesn't want that. The GOP just wants to pander to fools.

  19. I voted for Trump because I wanted better Border Security and the Wall. We are a Sovereign Nation and have every right to have a safe and secured border. 63 Million Americans voted for Trump. Thats alot of people that want that Wall. The American people spoke when we elected Trump. We want the Wall and our Nation Secured.

  23. Schiff: Trump cannot criticize language after turning my name into a profanity

    https://thehill.com/homenews/sunday-talk-shows/424054-schiff-trump-cannot-criticize-language-after-turning-my-name-into

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said Sunday that President Trump "is not in a position to talk about language" because "no one has done more to debase the political sphere than Donald Trump."

    "I'm in a unique position to say this," Schiff noted, "considering the president turned my name into a profanity."

    Trump in a November tweet labeled Schiff as "little Adam Schitt."

    Trump last week criticized Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), who just took office, after she said the new Democratic majority would "go in and impeach the motherf---er.”

  24. Trump is hurting many Americans and hurting our government with this cruel shutdown. He is doing it to satisfy and placate less than 1/3 of American citizens. Every day he is losing some of his small loyal base and he is making the majority of Americans angry. This will not end well for Donald Trump and the damage he is doing will cost a lot to repair.

  25. Durbin: Shutdown deal remains elusive because Trump "doesn't care"

    Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, the second-highest ranking Democrat in the Senate, said lawmakers and the White House remain deeply divided over budget negotiations to reopen the government, saying President Trump "doesn't care" if the partial shutdown continues to drag on.

    "I can't say that we're close, because the president has made it clear he doesn't care," Durbin said on "Face the Nation" Sunday. "He's prepared to see a shutdown for months and even said years, and reaffirmed that before the cameras. It was stunning to hear a president of the United States say that about his own government, a government we elected him to lead."

    Durbin dismissed Mr. Trump's repeated accusations that Democrats are not supporting funds for a border wall only because he made the issue an integral theme of his campaign and White House agenda.

    "Well, I would just say, do you remember the president's words? How could you forget? A concrete wall 2,000 miles long from sea to shining sea paid for by the Mexicans. How many times did he say that to the American people?" Durbin said. "That is not what any of us have ever voted for in the past."
