Within the next hour or so a group of political warriors meet with President Trump. So far here’s who have sent their Yes RSVP. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), incoming House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), House GOP leaders Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) and Steve Scalise (La.), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Senate Majority Whip John Thune (R-S.D.), Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (Ill.), sources told The Hill.
Now this is a who’s who of Washington D. C. . And the meeting will take place in the Situation Room. Why there? Maybe elite daily can best describe why. For those of you wondering: what is the Situation Room? Here’s a quick rundown. Basically, this space is one of the most important conference rooms within the White House, and only the uppermost important topics are discussed and seen between those walls. Before entering the room, everyone has to forfeit their phones to ensure top security, which is why Omarosa sneaking in a recorder was such a huge deal. So, the fact that Trump plans to hold a meeting to discuss the shutdown in a no-tech-allowed room might actually be a solid plan. (As long as everyone follows the rules, that is.)
Now the meeting is supposed to be on border security. Read between the lines of the following paragraphs from an article by Brook Singman.
“We are giving Republicans the opportunity to take yes for an answer,” Pelosi said. “Senate Republicans have already supported this legislation, and if they reject it now, they will be fully complicit in chaps and destruction of the President’s third shutdown of his term.”
But White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Tuesday called Pelosi’s plan a “non-starter,” saying that it “does not fund our homeland security or keep American families safe from human trafficking, drugs, and crime.”
“President Trump has made a serious, good faith offer to Democrats to open the government, address the crisis at our border, and protect all Americans,” Sanders said in a statement. “We have heard nothing from the Democrats, who so far have refused to compromise. Speaker Designate Nancy Pelosi released plan that will not re-open the government because it fails to secure the border and puts the needs of other countries above the needs of our own citizens.”
In closing, It will be like a Roman Gladiator Battle- Royall. Only difference is that we may see a thousand cuts but no deaths. What say you?
