Nancy Pelosi Brags After Democrats ‘Defeat’ President Trump

By

The Democrats did it.

The got Trump to pay for their pet projects, while denying funding for his promised border wall.

Democratic Party leaders were boastful following a marathon negotiation with the Trump White House.

Chief among the boasters was House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, naturally.

Via Breitbart:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi trumpeted her party’s successes in the negotiations over the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill in a statement released late Wednesday.

While Democrats had not managed to secure a solution for the so-called “Dreamers” — a major demand of the progressive activist base of the party — she boasted that she had funded many Democratic spending priorities.

Crucially, she said, Democrats had prevented Trump from building his wall, restricting new spending on border security to secondary fencing.

Pelosi’s statement read:

“Thanks to the leadership of Democrats, the omnibus proposal contains bold investments in our veterans, the NIH, community health centers, and families fighting opioid addiction.  These job-creating, life-saving investments stand in sharp contrast to the Trump Budget.

“Democrats won explicit language restricting border construction to the same see-through fencing that was already authorized under current law.  The bill does not allow any increase in deportation officers or detention beds.  We are disappointed that we did not reach agreement on Dreamer protections that were worthy of these patriotic young people.  We will continue to ask the Speaker to give us a vote to protect Dreamers and honor our values.”
