Trump fights fire with fire: “We will not Cave!”

President Donald Trump took a real-time approach to rebut House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s comments about the partial government shutdown and the postponement of the State of the Union address.

“Nancy just said she ‘just doesn’t understand why?’” Trump tweeted on Thursday. “Very simply, without a Wall it all doesn’t work. Our Country has a chance to greatly reduce Crime, Human Trafficking, Gangs and Drugs. Should have been done for decades. We will not Cave!”

Trump appeared to be referring to Pelosi’s address in which she announced that the partial government shutdown, and he insistence on the State of the Union address being postponed.

“Last night the president accepted the fact that the State of the Union should be at a time when government is not shut down. I’m glad we could get that off the table,” Pelosi said on Thursday morning.

“It is so unimportant in the lives of the American people in terms of especially those who are victims of the shutdown, hostages to the president’s applause line in a campaign speech,” Pelosi said at a press briefing, referring to Trump’s oft-repeated call to build a wall on the southern border.

“Thank goodness we have put that matter to rest and we can get on to the subject at hand, open up government so we can negotiate how best to protect our borders.”

Pelosi and Trump have been at odds for weeks, ever since she took over the speakership about how best to allocate funding for the government.

The president is insistent that the only bill he will sign must include over $5 billion in funding for a border wall, while Pelosi has stated that she believes a border wall would be immoral.

“Without a Wall there cannot be safety and security at the Border or for the U.S.A.” Trump tweeted early on Thursday BUILD THE WALL AND CRIME WILL FALL!”
