Whoa, Nelly! Sparks flew when Donald Trump met with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi to discuss border security funding and keeping the government ‚Äėopen.‚Äô
TRUMP to SCHUMER: "I am proud to shut down the government for border security, chuck. People in this country don't want criminals and people that have lots of problems and drugs pouring into our country" pic.twitter.com/E8CRW9k7pe

Seems it got so intense that Chuck ‚Äėcried uncle‚Äô:
Schumer cries uncle: "Let's debate in private!"

What, Chuck doesn‚Äôt want America to see this debate?
Heck, even Trump admitted he would take responsibility for the shutdown.
Trump: ‚ÄúI am proud to shut down the government for border security ‚Ä¶ I will take the mantle. I will be the one to shut it down. I‚Äôm not going to blame you for it‚ÄĚ pic.twitter.com/o4xmLRMOTH

And speaking of crying uncle seems Nancy also wanted to debate this in private ‚Ä¶
.@NancyPelosi ‚Äď why don‚Äôt you think the American people should be able to see your meeting with @realDonaldTrump @VP @SenSchumer? What are you so afraid of? #Transparency pic.twitter.com/bLzLq6oftb

Yeah, Nancy, what about transparency? What is she trying to hide?
Trump was really giving her all sorts of Hell ‚Ä¶ heh. And Democrats wondered why the GOP wanted her to be the speaker.
I look forward to a barrage of headlines about Pelosi and Schumer repeatedly trying to shut the press out of a meeting‚Ä¶oh wait

Nah, they‚Äôre all far too busy pretending Trump is impossible to deal with and that he‚Äôs a big meanie for being willing to take responsibility for shutting the government down over border security.
Get your popcorn, THIS is gonna be good.
