The left celebrated the reopening of the federal government last week as a “win” for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. With no legislative agenda for the American people to speak of, the liberal media are now forced to create fake victories for the Democrats. But to President Trump and tens of millions of hardworking American taxpayers, allowing our border crisis to continue is no victory.
Speaker Pelosi’s message to fellow Democrats that “unity is our power” speaks volumes to what the left cares about most. Sadly, the government shutdown demonstrated that congressional Democrats are unified by their hatred of President Trump and gaining power above all else. To date, the security of the American people has been nowhere to be found on their list of concerns.
Destroying the Trump presidency by any means necessary appears to be Pelosi’s only goal, and the anti-Trump media are a co-conspirator in this disgraceful effort. Pelosi refuses to listen to the American people – which would mean compromising on an immigration fix – because she’s scared to death that the radical leftists in her party will remove her from power. This is not leadership. And it’s certainly nothing to celebrate.

Shamefully, the liberal media provide cover for Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. and fellow Democrats by ignoring President Trump’s repeated attempts at compromise on the divisive issue of illegal immigration, which is the mark of a true leader. President Trump is willing to take the heat from his base of supporters in order to find common ground to secure our border, and Speaker Pelosi is not. That’s a fact.
