House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi just threw her two cents into the argument around the ongoing government shutdown and she didn’t mince words.
The major sticking point seems to be Trump’s obsession with a border wall. He reportedly won’t sign any deal to protect Dreamers that doesn’t include funding for a wall. Democrats have signaled willingness to compromise here, but they’re not about to take it lying down.
When she heard Trump’s request for $20 billion, Pelosi had some choice words.
“We all have a responsibility to protect our borders, north and south. There’s no question about that. So what do we need to do that? Why don’t we have an appraisal of what that should be. Should there be fencing? Should there be technology? Should they mow the grass so that people can’t hide in it? Should there be some bricks and mortar someplace Let’s see.”
