WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Donald J. Trump will ask Congress on Monday for several billion dollars for a border wall with Mexico, involving cuts to existing programs, and Democrats are already hitting back.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer released this joint statement on reports that President Trump will request $8.6 billion for his “expensive and ineffective border wall”:

Nancy Pelosi

“President Trump hurt millions of Americans and caused widespread chaos when he recklessly shut down the government to try to get his expensive and ineffective wall, which he promised would be paid for by Mexico. Congress refused to fund his wall and he was forced to admit defeat and reopen the government. The same thing will repeat itself if he tries this again. We hope he learned his lesson.

“At a time when our country faces challenges about jobs for the future, this money would better be spent on rebuilding America, and on education and workforce development for jobs for the 21st Century.”

President Trump in recent weeks has claimed that the border wall is getting built, even while thousands of illegals have streamed across the border, according to news reports.

    Dark Forces at work for flooding America with millions of illegals – more than a few have hatred for America and its citizens. Sad thing is these treasonous bastards calling themselves the Socialist Party of DEMOCRATS. They have no compassion for the future of our naturally born citizens that formed this great country – Only GREED and POWER for their warped minds.

    It is Trumps job to protect the country and that is just what he is doing. Democrats are and always have been traitors to this country.
