Sarah Sanders: With or Without the Democrats, Trump Will Move Forward on Wall in 21 Days

'Only question' is whether they 'want something or nothing'

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders on Friday, in a tweet, quoted President Donald Trump’s earlier tweet claiming the Trump administration will move forward with building the border security wall in 21 days.

“In 21 days President @realDonaldTrump is moving forward [on] building the wall with or without the Democrats,” Sanders wrote.

“The only outstanding question is whether the Democrats want something or nothing.”

Let me ask: Why even telegraph your moves?

Are you embarrassed that Joe Biden is our "president"?

What good will that do for the next three weeks of government?

All the Dems will do is cook up some court challenge so that at the end of three weeks, they’ll be ready to stop any movement until the court goes over the information.

Sanders sent out her tweet after the Senate and House passed a continuing resolution to reopen the government after its partial shutdown for three weeks.

President Trump’s tweet from earlier Friday evening about his decision to reopen the government was in no way a concession.

Yet many Trump supporters see the decision to not stick by his original promise — that he would only reopen the government if he had funding for the border wall — as a “cave.”

Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs, for example, who is an unapologetic supporter of President Trump, said that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) “has just whipped the president of the United States.”
