Center for Security Policy president Frank Gaffney is asking President Donald Trump to utilize his veto power to demand funds for his suggested wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
During an interview with SiriusXM Patriot’sBreitbart News Daily, Frank Gaffney told Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow that Trump has take advantage of over the Republican-controlled Congress when it pertains to moneying border building projects and he ought to use it.
” I guess I’m in the camp where if we don’t get this border secured, we’re not going to have a nation,” Gaffney said. “My guess is that sort of supersedes my computations about the politics of this at the moment”:
The president has take advantage of in one sense, he can veto legislation. It needs two-thirds of both homes to override his veto in order for things to get done.I believe the fact that he can say, “Look, I mean it. I am not going to do this. And you’re not going to get what you desire, your goodies, your social costs, your $10.8 billion for Central America, whatever else you may be trying to find unless you come to terms with me on this offer.” [Emphasis added]
And $5 billion, let’s face it, is small potatoes. This is about the concept of whether Donald Trump as President of the United States is going to have the ability to determine sufficiently to a Democratic congressthat he can get his agenda through or he’s going to just merely do whatever they permit him to do. And that isn’t going to produce a very great 2 years. [Emphasis included]
Gaffney stated the fight for border building and construction financing is not just about the country’s sovereignty and stopping illegal migration, however likewise Trump’s 2020 re-election bid.
” This is what is at stake here,” Gaffney stated. “It’s about the future of his presidency and I hesitate that this is a bad day for that too.”
