Its wall or bust for the President and the GOP

I’ll keep this short. The 2020 election is starting right now. In fact, many of the reelection races will be determined in the next couple of weeks. It all comes down to whether or not they pass a continuing resolution that includes funding for the border wall or not.

That’s not to say the Republicans will definitely win if they get wall funding. It’s to say they will definitely lose if they don’t.

This is the last opportunity to show America they can keep one of their biggest promises they made in 2016. As our editor-in-chief just Tweeted:

There is zero chance the wall will get funded any time in the next two years or longer if they can’t secure the down payment on the wall today. The House has already passed a version of the CR that allocates $5.7 billion for DHS. It won’t pass in the Senate, but it makes for a great starting point to get negotiations started so the government shutdown, which starts tonight, can be ended as soon as possible.

If the Republicans stand their ground with the President and refuse to pass a CR without wall funding, they can win back the House, keep the Senate, and reelect President Trump in 2020. If they fail now as they’ve failed for 2 years, they will lose it all next election.
