They Just Don’t Care–> Democrat Leaders WOULD NOT EVEN LISTEN to Border Security Briefing at WH Meeting
President Trump met with Congressional leaders on Wednesday following the holiday break in the White House Situation Room.
Republican and Democrat leaders met with the president today to discuss the continued government shutdown.
House Speaker-Designate Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) emerged from the meeting with President Trump at the White House Wednesday vowing to pass bills that will re-open the government and stiff the President on border wall funding.
Democrat participants in today’s meeting “refused” to even listen to Homeland Security Officials during their presentation.
They just don’t care.
Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told reporters after the meeting:
“I’m a little disappointed with, what I would say, some on the opposite side. They wouldn’t, once the secretary started they wouldn’t, uh, Senator Schumer interrupted her and they really didn’t want to hear it.”
They don’t care.
The Daily Caller reported:
The White House official told TheDC that both Pelosi and Schumer refused to hear out Nielsen’s briefing and instead advocated for two solutions to end the government shutdown. Neither of the Democratic options would provide the additional funding for border security requested by The White House.
“Democrats in the room either don’t care that there is a humanitarian crisis on the border or just prefer ignorance. It was incredibly disheartening that they don’t want to know the facts when making policy,” DHS Spokeswoman Katie Waldman said in a statement to TheDC.
Representatives for Pelosi and Schumer did not respond to requests for comment.
