President Donald Trump is in big trouble.

A stunning act of betrayal threw the President and his supporters for a loop.

That’s because Trump never imagined these traitors would sell him out to Nancy Pelosi.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell set up dueling votes on proposals to end the government shutdown.

First, the Senate would vote on Donald Trump’s common sense proposal to secure $5.7 billion in border wall funding while giving the Democrats extended protections for the so-called “DREAMers” and TPS recipients.

That proposal garnered 51 votes and fell short of the 60 votes necessary to break a Democrat filibuster.

Next, McConnell teed up a vote on the Democrats proposal to reopen the government with no money for a border wall.

Shockingly, this proposal secured 53 votes – more than President Trump’s – because six Republicans broke with the President to join the Democrats in supporting open borders.

RINO Senators Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Cory Gardner, Lamar Alexander and Johnny Isakson stabbed their own President in the back and sidled up to Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.

Trump supporters were stunned.

Going into the twin votes, no one expected either proposal to pass.

But pundits were watching for which one would win more votes.

The vote tally was a clue as to which party would enter the ensuing negotiations holding a stronger hand.

Previously, Mitt Romney expressed support for the border wall.

“I would vote for the border wall,” Romney said in an early January interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper. “We should have a wall on the southern border.”

The former two-time failed Presidential candidate also declared he would “be with the Republicans on the shutdown.”

But Romney proved his words were worthless when he and his fellow RINOs quickly turned traitor.

They sided with Schumer and strengthened Pelosi’s position on continuing to reject border wall funding under any circumstances.

Their vote guarantees that the shutdown will drag on and now boxes the President into a corner where Republicans in Congress can jam a bad deal through in order to avoid any more blame from the fake news media.

Trump supporters were furious.

Republicans – up until this point – had united around Trump and his request for 5.7 billion dollars in border wall funding.

But at the first sign of difficulty, these six RINOs tucked tail and ran over to the Democrats waiving their white flag of surrender.

Four of these Senators are not up for re-election in 2020 and had no reason to vote against the President.

But if Collins and Gardner hold any hope of winning re-election in 2020, they are going to need Trump supporters to turn out.

These six RINOs failed political calculus with their votes.

They hurt the President’s bargaining position.

And they damaged their own political standing.

Do you think these six RINOs should face primary challengers for betraying President Trump and the conservative base?
