Nancy Pelosi Fires Back After Donald Trump’s Last Ditch Border Stunt

After failing to convince the American people to support his border wall and government shutdown, Donald Trump is about to escalate his failure by giving a nationally televised speech on Tuesday evening, presumably full of racism and lies, aimed at convincing the American people to support his idiotic immigration policy. Nancy Pelosi isn’t having any of it.

Trump is, in effect, asking the major television networks for the opportunity to spread lies, without any host or moderator to intervene and call him out. Because of this, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are firing back. They’ve jointly issued the following public statement:

“Now that the television networks have decided to air the President’s address, which if his past statements are any indication will be full of malice and misinformation, Democrats must immediately be given equal airtime.”

While Trump is causing great hardship to the average person in this country, Democrats passed a short-term extension of funding for the Homeland Security Department, without funding for a border wall — a proposal Democrats have no immediate plans to repackage since it’s already awaiting action by the Senate as a stand-alone bill, according to the aide.

We’ll see what the television networks do. But given that MSNBC and CNN have begun employing tactics such as a split screen so that Donald Trump and his people fact-checked in real time while giving live speeches, it’s difficult to imagine they won’t at least consider giving Nancy Pelosi equal time to provide a rebuttal after Trump’s debacle.
