It’s no secret that the Democrats are against President Trump’s proposed border wall. The party has spoken out against the concept since the president first brought it up while he was out on the campaign trail.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi doubled down on that sentiment in an NBC “Meet the Press” interview on Sunday.
The Hill reports:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday spoke out strongly against President Trump’s proposed border wall, saying the Democrats do not support its construction.
“The president talks about how tall it is, who’s going to pay for it and all the rest of that, but you have to understand this part of the country. There’s a community with the border going through it,” she said during an interview on NBC’s “Meet The Press.”
“The president, I think, talking about this wall, is expressing a sign of weakness. He’s saying, ‘I can’t control our borders. I have to build a wall.'”
Representative Pelosi said that building a wall would be expensive and unwise. She went on to say that she feels building a wall along on the U.S. Mexican border is “immoral.”
She said that her party will not support the wall’s construction. This can easily interpreted to mean that the party will actively try to make sure the Trump administration can’t make good on one of the president’s key campaign promises.
The Trump administration has been working hard to pass a bill that would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. Recently President Trump announced that the administration intends to begin looking at tax reform.
Big TAX REFORM AND TAX REDUCTION will be announced next Wednesday.

At this point the wall doesn’t seem like a priority. The Trump administration has decided to focus on other things, but the president says the wall will be constructed. Pelosi and the rest of the Democratic Party are intent on making sure that President Trump never makes good on that campaign promise.
