Urge Congress to sustain President Trump's veto of bill blocking the wall!

President Trump needs your help to sustain his veto of a resolution by Congress that would block him from building the wall under his national emergency declaration.

These days, Congress is not getting much done to help President Trump Make America Great Again including building the wall, but he still has one card to play.

And that is to veto any spending bill and force Congress to vote on overriding it. A vote to sustain the veto is a vote for the wall, and a vote to override the veto is a vote against the wall.

Then, to get the wall, Trump doesn’t need 218 votes in the House, he needs 146. And he doesn’t need 60 votes in the Senate, he needs 34. That’s what the separation of powers provides for.

President Ronald Reagan got tax cuts and defense spending increases by blocking spending bills, resulting in a total of eight partial government shutdowns. And he had the votes to sustain vetoes when he needed. In 1983, 146 House members signed a letter saying they would vote to sustain presidential vetoes on funding bills.

In the end, there may be no other way to force a vote on the wall that means anything — or anything else. Urge your Representative and Senators to support sustaining President Trump's veto on spending bills.

Why do Republican politicians continue lying to the American voters AND WHY DO THE AMERICAN VOTERS continue voting for these lying RATS. So Paul Ryan leaves - AND who is voted in to take his place for Majority Leader - Keven McCarthy! Why was this clown voted in as Majority Leader? Why wasn't Jim Jordan voted in as Majority Leader? We are losing this country! Everyone who voted for Trump better put on your Big Boy Panties and stand strong. Anyone who's tired of the fight - YOU - need to just get out. The Democrat/Communist party will do everything they can to get rid of Trump - meaning - the American voters 'vote' doesn't count. And yes, shut the government down.

Would be great for elected officials in Congress to get a spine and support the will of the people who voted for them to represent us and support what President Trump is doing for all Americans.

Democrats and some RINOS likely getting back pocket money from Chamber of Commerce as example to go against the wall. Democrats know a wall works. As it is people get in the Country illegally and costs taxpayers billions for benefits and Democrats likely get more votes for them. Eventually you will never see another Republican President at minimum.

How come 5 billion for a US southern border wall for the next budget is too much to ask according to M. W. Hassan? She recently made this statement of concern in part---"I believe that building a wall, on its own, is a misguided and ineffective policy that will come at a steep cost to American taxpayers, with estimates showing that it would cost tens of billions of dollars." But all you elected anti American representatives do not have a problem sending a total of 10.6 billion American taxpayer dollars to three South American countries which 5 billion alone is going to Mexico for their southern border! You did not vote on it and neither did I. I am tired of your hate for the American taxpayer and I will tell you that the EU;s "yellow vests" will be coming to the US soon. Just think how many US veterans could have been helped with that 10.6 billion. All you are doing is propping up corrupt politicians in those countries. The previous administration sent billions down there and the US is still being invaded with people and drugs. AMERICA FIRST, AMERICA LAST, AMERICA ALWAYS.

Like so many others, I am extremely disappointed in the leadership in both House and Senate. Now is the time to step up to the late and help President Trump cement the great improvements his actions have made to the lives of your constituents. The President has kept his promises, now it is your turn to act positively.

President Trump is willing to keep the promises he made while working for my vote. The way I see it, congress is also working to NOT get my vote. What possible reason could there be to not secure the borders? Once I witness who votes no on building this wall, I will know who doesn't have the best interest of American's at heart. Who's interest is driving them?
