President Donald Trump upset some of his deep conservative supporters earlier this week when he announced that he would be putting the border wall on hold.
Trump is currently battling it out with Congress over this year’s budget bill. If a budget bill isn’t passed by Friday, the government will shutdown.
Trump decided to put the border wall on hold until September, instead of forcing it into the budget bill and risking a government shutdown.
Conservative Tribune reports:
Conservative Review senior editor Daniel Horowitz revisited the number of issues the Trump administration and congressional Republicans have dropped since Trump took office in January. He also posed a series of questions about just how seriously Trump actually means to achieve some of the goals that most inspired his supporters in the campaign.
Republicans were fighting harder when they controlled only the House of Representatives during the Obama administration than they are now, with the House, Senate and White House in their hands, he wrote.
One question summed up the present and the foreseeable future well enough to explain why some Trump supporters are getting very angry, no matter how much they support Trump personally. “If Republicans can’t deliver on any of these basic promises when their political capital is the strongest and they stand the farthest from the next election, what dynamic will change in the next year to provide conservatives with a single legislative victory?”
Trump has accomplished many things since becoming president. The economy has improved drastically, he has proven that he is committed to protecting American interests on the international stage, and he isn’t afraid to engage with America’s enemies. Still, his decision to back down on the border wall, which was one of his major campaign promises, is disappointing.
