Donald Trump: Barack Obama Gave Iran $150 Billion; Why Not $5 Billion For A Wall?

Trump is calling out Dem hypocrisy!

Breitbart reported:

“President Donald Trump continued advocating Wednesday for significant funding for his promised wall on the southern border.

“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?” Trump asked on Twitter.

The president was referring to former President Barack Obama’s controversial $1.7 billion settlement with Iran including a special delivery of $400 million in pallets of cash to the country on the same day that Iran released American prisoners.”

Trump demanded Tuesday that Democrats support a deal that includes additional border security funds in a meeting with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.”

NBC News added:

“President Donald Trump on Wednesday referred to the latest mass shooting in France, which French officials have labeled a terror attack, in urging Democrats to give him the funding he wants for his wall on the U.S. southern border.

“Another very bad terror attack in France. We are going to strengthen our borders even more,” the president said in a tweet, before appealing to House Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. “Chuck and Nancy must give us the votes to get additional Border Security!”

French officials said Wednesday that they were hunting a suspect on a terrorist watch list after a gunman opened fire on a Christmas market in Strasbourg, killing two people, leaving one brain-dead, and injuring at least a dozen others.

The tweet comes one day after Trump’s explosive Oval Office meeting with Schumer and Pelosi, in which the press was invited to witness a testy exchange over money for the president’s long-promised border wall ahead of a government funding deadline.

During this negotiation, which featured contentious exchanges between the three while Vice President Mike Pence watched silently, Trump said he would be “proud” to shut down the government in the name of border security.”
