President Trumps Oval Office speech Fact check - confirmed

The President is often accused by mainstream media of fabricating facts or skewing data. His speech to the nation in prime time tonight had none of that. We carefully listened and checked what he said. It was all correct.

Some highlights:

  • Growing humanitarian and security crisis at our southern border. – Confirmed.
  • Out of space to hold them. – Confirmed.
  • America proudly welcomes millions of lawful immigrants. – Confirmed.
  • Illegal immigration is a strain to public resources. – Confirmed.
  • Hardest hit are African- and Hispanic-Americans. – Confirmed.
  • Our southern border is used as a pipeline for vast quantities of illegal drugs. – Confirmed.
  • More Americans will die from drugs this year than the Vietnam War. – Confirmed.
  • Thousands of Americans have been brutally killed by those who illegally enter our country. – Confirmed.
  • The problem at the southern border is a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul. – Confirmed.
  • Law enforcement officials have requested $5.7 billion to help them fix border security. – Confirmed.
  • This is just common sense. – Confirmed.

Two important quotes emerged from his speech. The first placed him squarely on the right side of the debate, something he has failed to do properly until now.

“This is the cycle of human suffering that I am determined to end.”

I wish he would have been leading with variations of this line for the last couple of months.

His second big quote was a question that doesn’t need any commentary:

“How much more American blood must be shed before Congress does their job?”

As for the Democrats’ response, I Tweeted my thoughts.

It’s time for the American people to put aside their bias against the President. Heck, I’m not a fan, but I support what he’s trying to do at the southern border. We need the wall, and Congress needs to step up to make it happen.

Oh, and there’s this:

Pirro: Democrats putting politics over people

Pirro Democrats putting politics over people

Following President Trump’s speech to America with his compromise offer to Democrats to secure the border and end the government shutdown, Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro was in rare form as she went after Democrats for instantly rejecting the proposal. Her biggest target was Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

The President has requested funds in order to build a small portion of the border wall, render humanitarian assistance, improve drug detection technology, and hire 2,750 additional border patrol agents and 75 immigration judge teams. In exchange, he’s offering three years of extended protection for DACA recipients and those with Temporary Protected Status.

Here was her response:

My Take

There are many conservatives who are against the proposal. Under normal circumstances, I would be as well. But we’re approaching a full month of the government shutdown. Enough is enough.

Will Democrats abandon Dreamers over the political ploy of the border wall?

Will Democrats abandon Dreamers over the political ploy of the border wall

The ball is back in the Democrats’ court. Some may say it’s been there the whole time. I do. Unfortunately, most Americans have bought into the leftist media narrative that the President is forcing the government shutdown to continue by not negotiating despite clear evidence to the contrary.

Nevertheless, the President has decided to make his compromise public. He took to national television to offer three years worth of protection to Dreamers.

Trump’s immigration offer brings polarized reactions from Dems and GOP

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trumps-immigration-offer-brings-polarized-reactions-from-dems-and-gopPresident Trump’s immigration compromise package to end the partial government shutdown drew sharp reactions from Democratic and Republican lawmakers alike.

In a televised White House address Saturday, Trump offered Democrats a three-year extension of protections for 700,000 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, in exchange for the $5.7 billion to fund a barrier along the southern border with Mexico.

The Democrats’ responses were predictable. They don’t want any deal that includes the border wall because they realize if they can keep the wall from going forward, it harms the President’s chances for reelection in 2020.

Period.

This has never been about helping immigrants. Democrats are willing to harm both Dreamers and 800,000 Americans hurt by the shutdown in order to make the President look bad for 2020. They’re a disgrace to our nation’s government. Build the wall.

No national emergency declaration: Trump’s “major announcement” will be an offer Democrats can’t refuse

No national emergency declaration Trumps major announcement will be an offer Democrats cant refuse

This may be the best news I’ve heard all day (yes, even better than learning the Buzzfeed story was debunked, though that was pretty awesome as well). According to multiple outlets, the President will NOT be declaring a national emergency to fund the border wall and end the government shutdown. Instead he will be making Democrats an offer on live television to get the wall funded while dangling an incentive that he hopes will push Democrats to the negotiating table.

I’ll admit up front that I didn’t see this coming. I even went so far as to scold the President prematurely for declaring a national emergency, which apparently he is not. As I’ve always said, I will praise him when he does well and criticize him when he does poorly. Unless this report is wrong, I’ll happily praise him… unless his offer is too much.

What might be offered? Perhaps the DACA fix he didn’t want to do when Senator Chuck Schumer shut down the government last year. Maybe he’ll throw them a curve ball and offer some sort of boost to environmental efforts. Perhaps it’ll be adding more humanitarian aid to his border security package, greatly increasing the size and manpower of facilities that hold and process illegal immigrants and migrant seekers.

If I were a betting man, I’d put my money on a DACA fix. Then again, I would have also put my money on him declaring a national emergency, and it seems I would have lost that bet.

Whatever the offer is, it’ll need to be something that will make the Democrats look poorly to Independents and moderate Democrats if they don’t take it while not being so much that his base will feel betrayed by the offer.

Assuming this pans out as expected, I owe the President an apology for assuming the worst. Instead of the worst, this may be the best case scenario and as long as he’s not giving up too much, may also be the best move of his presidency.
