No Funds for Trump’s Wall in Democrats’ Agenda
WASHINGTON, DC – October 17, 2018
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said on Tuesday that she will trade absolutely nothing to give President Donald Trump his border wall if Democrats take back the House and she regains her Speakership.
When one person at the Harvard Institute of Politics mentioned that a border wall is important to people in places like rural Pennsylvania and wondered what Pelosi would be willing to trade for to give Republicans the border wall, Pelosi replied, “Nothing.”
The minority leader said that no matter what happens in the midterms, “I don’t see any of us voting for wall funding” when the issue is expected to come up in December.
She agreed that “we have a responsibility to secure our borders” but stressed that “there are ways to do that that are consistent with civilization, humanitarianism and who we are as a nation.”
Pelosi said Trump’s border wall is “immoral, expensive, ineffective, not something that people do between countries.”
