Trump Demands Strengthening Of US Borders After French Attack: 'Chuck and Nancy Must Give Us The Votes'
President Trump on Wednesday posted another tweet on border security.
President Trump on Wednesday called for increased border security in the wake a Christmas market shooting in Strasbourg, France, that left three people dead and 13 injured.
"Another very bad terror attack in France," Trump tweeted.
"We are going to strengthen our borders even more.
Chuck and Nancy must give us the votes to get additional Border Security!"
And in another tweet, he wrote: "The Democrats and President Obama gave Iran 150 Billion Dollars and got nothing, but they can't give 5 Billion Dollars for National Security and a Wall?"
The tweets come after his testy Oval Office exchange with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Tuesday.
"I am proud to shut down the government for border security, Chuck, because the people of this country don't want criminals and people that have lots of problems and drugs pouring into our country," Trump said during the meeting.
"So I will take the mantle.
I will be the one to shut it down.
I'm not going to blame you for it.
The last time you shut it down, it didn't work.
I will take the mantle of shutting down."
