Nancy Pelosi

Democrats are playing the most expensive and dangerous game of chicken in American history.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is holding a key vote hostage because she thinks this victory is the key to destroying President Trump.

And then Donald Trump hit Nancy Pelosi with a coronavirus ultimatum that had all hell breaking loose.

Late Sunday, Senate Republicans thought they had negotiated a $1.6 trillion economic relief package to keep small businesses afloat and support distressed industries on the verge of collapse during the government-imposed shutdowns to combat the spread of the coronavirus.

Some Trump supporters opposed the controversial bill because they deemed it a bailout.

Other Trump supporters believed that since it was the government ordering businesses to close down, the government owed it to those workers to provide money to keep their paychecks flowing so there was an economy to return to once the quarantines were lifted.

But that deal was thrown into chaos when Nancy Pelosi flew back from San Francisco after a week-long vacation and began demanding the bill include unrelated socialist wish list items like minority representation for corporate boards, universal mail-in voting and communist Green New Deal schemes to regulate fuel standards for airlines.

Democrats walked away from the table and blocked the bill twice by defeating procedural votes.

The stock market tanked 600 points in response as investors expected Democrats would put patriotism over politics in this time of national crisis.

But Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer don’t care how many people die or how high into the millions job losses run.

They care about destroying Donald Trump’s Presidency and exploiting the climate of fear created by the coronavirus to impose their socialist agenda by ramming it through in a bill that everyone in Washington believes is “must pass.”

President Trump called out Nancy Pelosi for her dangerous and politically craven attempts to manipulate the coronavirus outbreak for her own political gains.

The President issued a tweet telling Republicans he would not agree to the Democrats’ anti-American, open borders schemes – Pelosi tried to sneak an automatic extension of nonimmigrant visas into the bill – and socialist Green New Deal goodies.

“Republicans had a deal until Nancy Pelosi rode into town from her extended vacation. The Democrats want the Virus to win? They are asking for things that have nothing to do with our great workers or companies. They want Open Borders & Green New Deal. Republicans shouldn’t agree!” the President wrote on social media.

Democrats believe they hold all the cards in these negotiations because President Trump wants to mitigate the public health crisis and save the economy.

Pelosi and her cabal are taking advantage of the President’s good intentions to squeeze Republicans on a bill the President desperately wants to see pass.

But President Trump’s tweet made it clear that he will not be pushed around on this legislation.
