WATCH: President Trump Calls Out Resistance In Senate

Senate Democrats call it “the resistance” – they’re resisting the will of the American Voter and it is not good.

From day one, Senate Democrats have shamelessly obstructed, stalled, and filibustered the confirmations of hundreds of talented men and women who are eager to come to Washington, D.C. to make a difference. They want to serve our country.

My nominees face a longer average confirmation wait than any in the history of our country.  Today, more than 300 of our nominees are still awaiting a vote.

Last June, I nominated Isabel Patelunas to serve as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Intelligence and Analysis. Now, almost a year later, this tremendously qualified professional with nearly three decades of intelligence experience is still awaiting confirmation. She’s given up so much. She’s left areas. She’s moved from homes and she’s still not confirmed. It’s a disgrace.

Democrats in Congress are also blocking urgently needed improvements to our border security. They don’t want border security for two reasons. Number one, they don’t care about it. Number two, they are afraid it’s going to make me and the republicans look good and they don’t want that. That comes before our country. They have blocked every effort to close deadly loopholes, to keep out vicious criminals, and to stop the flow of illegal immigrants and drugs. They are a disaster at the border. These actions are endangering our citizens, threatening our communities, and undermining our national security.

It is time for Senate Democrats to stop resisting the will of the American People. So very simply, stop resisting the will of the American People and to start working across the aisle to deliver for all citizens. We love our country; we want to keep our country great.

Thank you very much.

They resist because they are afraid if they dont the presidents policies might continue to do wonderful things for the American people and eventually even the frostiest snow flake might begin to see the benefits and the Democrats would certainly become even a little pleased with the
presidents plan . . . Then the Dems would be even less of value to the real Americans than they are now !

“These actions are endangering our citizens, threatening our communities, and undermining our national security.”

I would think where there is a National Security issue a temporary Executive Order to either fill or otherwise address the issues would be in order, until the Congress acts on appointments and activity to have a more secure America.

Our President has now stepped up to call out the Far Left Radicals in our congress. However, he failed to include RINO,s who are as guilty as the democrats ! I find it more then frustrating to see what Washington, Dc ( District Of Corruption) has and is continuing to do to Destroy America ! I do not care whether you are democrat or republican, we Must All Be Americans First and Foremost!! We Must Honor Our Constitution and the Established Rule Of Law !! We Must Support Our Duly Elected President Trump All The Way!!

We have no option other than to vote out every Dem including Manchin from WV, as well as Heidi, and every other Dem to give a stronger majority to the Republicans. About time the agenda we voted for was implemented and the miserable Dems are total obstructionists‼️

While this statement may not be directly related to this particular commentary it is important for all Trump supporters to consider.
If most reasonable thinking people would think about their observations of the Left, Liberals and Democrats over the last two years they would see a group of people among them that are totally unhinged, irrational, hypocritical, liars, cheats, and their credibility is zero. We have been subjected to violent behavior, attacks on the Constitution, Religion, and the laws of the land. When people protect individuals who come here illegally and commit heinous crimes against other non citizens and citizens you have to know there is something wrong with the way they think. How can any American Citizen be against employing American Citizens, enforcing the laws of the land, and giving priority to American Citizens rather than Illegal’s, who we spend 135 billion dollars a year to support, as well as the tax break that has enabled business to flourish?
Everyone needs to think seriously about the direction you want this Country to take prior to voting in the 2018 elections. In 2016 despite all the projections we elected a President who has not only kept many of his promises against a stream of constant harassment but has actually turned things around in this Country for the better.
It is essential that we give President Trump a significant majority in the House and the Senate with people who will support him not continually try to undermine him. If you are pleased with the direction of the Country and tired of the continual assaults on our traditional values by the Left, Liberals and Democrats then it is essential that We The People get out and cast our votes for folks who will advance the Trump agenda. We will have only ourselves to blame if we fail to do this by thinking others will carry the day for us. Vote Republican for a better Country and allow the President to do the job he wants to do for us, the American People.
If you agree with my position here feel free to pass this on..

I agree. I demand that the corrupt DNC get out of the way of President Trump and the will of the American people! I also demand that the witch hunt end in the FBI, and the DOJ prosecute Hillary Clinton for her crimes. Unconstitutional judges also need to go, they speak for powerful international interests not the American people!

How, pray tell, are they blocking anything when the GOP has control of both houses? – Let’s tell it like it is. It’s the stinking RINOs that run with the NWO Marxists (democrats) that are gumming up the works. They ALL must go and I don’t mean maybe.

What the American people need to do is vote these people who are block the Presidents agenda out of office. It might take some time, but the mid term elections are coming up and it would be the best time to let the Democrats and that the people are fed up with their actions and it should stop now.

The reason the democrats are protecting illegal immigrants is because they know they will register to vote and vote illegally for those politicians protecting them. California provides illegal immigrants drivers licenses that look very much like the licenses legal residence have. Hillary won California by over 3 million. An expert that works in the California DMV said that there are over 3 million illegal immigrants that have the enhanced license. If they are willing to steal social security numbers, then they are willing to steal votes. That is why the democrats really want open borders; to flood the country with people who will vote illegally and vote for them so they can stay in power. I have a friend who’s mother is here legally and she became ill, so she had to go to the hospital. When my friend was interpreting for her mother, the social worker tried to have her register to vote and suggested to register as a democrat because that is what most immigrants do. My friend said that her mother couldn’t vote because she is not a citizen. The social worker said that it didn’t matter. My friend angrily replied that her mother will not break the law and that she became a citizen so that she could have the right to vote. This happened in Rochester, NY ( a sanctuary city).

Democrats & rinos don’t want a country, they want a One World Government. They are determined to create it, by any means necessary. And, if the UN gains any more power, it will eliminate those who stand in their way. Even if it means a world war, which is their intention. But, they will be protected, sitting in their bunkers, watching from a safe depth.

The Democrat are so afraid of the word “WIN, WIN, WIN” .
They’re becoming to be villains in a beautiful movie or novel. . . and you know what that means! You better shape up now or you all will lose in the end. There’s a saying “you can NOT put a GOOD MAN down.

There’s no doubt about what the liberal democrats are doing. But I don’t trust Mitch McConnell as far as I can throw a buick. I think he is pulling some deals behind closed doors. I had hoped to see some changes when Harry Reid left. But there hasn’t been much. As of last count there were 321 bills that haven’t been brought to the floor for vote.
