McConnell should stand up to Trump
About this national emergency at the border President Donald Trump has called for and enacted: Where is his documentation of such a national emergency? None of the government organizations have said there is a national emergency. That includes the military, Homeland Security, CIA, FBI and even the Justice Department. No Congressional emergency meeting or hearing. Nothing from the Senate. No one else from the White House stated the information on the national emergency. Only President Trump’s word.
So why are the conservative Republicans fine with this act? Conservative Republicans are banding together to support the president. But they did not explain what the national emergency is about. Is that not blind political loyalty?
Conservative Republicans attacked and insulted President Barack Obama for signing executive orders. The conservative Republicans called him “King Obama” and conservative Republicans gnashed their teeth and held up their fist in defiance of such perceived presidential abuse of power. And yet President Trump has signed more executive orders and a national emergency act on steel and aluminum and again on the southern border crisis. In both incidents, Trump did not justify his actions and conservative Republicans did not uphold their sworn duty to check presidential power grabs.
Mitch McConnell is the Senate majority leader and yet he does not challenge presidential power grabs. McConnell has not done his duty. He has failed America and the state of Kentucky. At what point are McConnell’s actions and speeches just political propaganda? Without McConnell standing up to President Trump about his war against Democrats and the free press, this nation is divided and cannot stand. There is political speech then there is hate speech. Mitch McConnell knows the difference. I hope he takes a stand to unite America.
President Trump made up a fake border crisis and declared a national emergency to steal funds from the military to build his monument wall. That is the truth. The wall is his monument to himself.
So Mitch McConnell, either stop President Trump or you need to resign in disgrace. Please choose.
