Democrats Want Mattis To Turn Down $450M Of Funding For Section Of Border Wall
I told you, they are not thinking with a full deck these days.

This is called Trump derangement syndrome on tap.

Democrats lost the past few elections including the last couple of midterms and the 2016 Presidential election. They’ve been suffering for a while now, and you can see they have fallen off the map of logical thinking.

Democrat leaders want Sec Defense Secretary Jim Mattis to turn down $450 million in border wall funds. I guess they want to make a statement against Pres. Trump and they are reaching out to one of his cabinet members to turn on the man who recommended him for the job he currently holds.

The request from the Department of Homeland Security would drain Pentagon funds needed to rebuild the military services and fix aging military facilities, according to a letter to Mattis from Rep. Adam Smith, D-Wash., the ranking member on the House Armed Services Committee, and fellow Democrats on the House Appropriations Committee.

“It is utterly irresponsible and appalling that President Trump wants to take away funding for military readiness and infrastructure in order to spend it on his border wall,” Smith said in a statement. “We are trying to ensure that our men and women in uniform have the facilities and training they need to face serious dangers while defending our country. If Secretary Mattis follows through on this request, it would undermine those efforts.”

The funding would be used to build a 31-mile section of wall along the Air Force’s Barry M. Goldwater range, which is near Yuma and abuts the U.S.-Mexico border.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen announced in April that the agency was looking into ways the military could help complete Trump’s wall, which has been stymied by lack of funding from Capitol Hill.

Can you believe this stupidity? Did they think Mattis was going to refuse to obtain money for the border wall when Pres Trump wants to protect the nation. I told you, they are not thinking with a full deck these days.
