    POTUS doesn't spend money. He/she just approves (or vetos) requests sent to him by the Congress that originate in the House.

    Hard to miss the flagrant racism of these two posts.

    Not surprisingly, I doubt that you have any idea that most people on SNAP are white and don't live in inner cities.

    Trump is a weak little bully who is waving the bloody shirt of fear and ingnorance.

    Here in the land of the brave and the free, real Americans don't cower behind walls from brown people.

    And that's exactly what Trump is selling.

    You need to learn more about illegal immigration. Traffickers make tons of money helping illegals cross borders. These traffickers are the ones hauling illegals on boats. You guys are so gung-ho about building the wall yet you're clueless about the situation.

    It's not that simple. Like it or not, the US is the biggest player in geopolitics. There would be many terrible consequences if we stopped foreign aid. As for the wall? It's an idiotic idea. There's a reason why nations stopped building walls around their borders centuries ago.

    Why can't states be upfront and honest ????

    States warn food stamp recipients to budget early benefit payments due to that illegal aliens and open borders are more important than they are.

    Ok. I'm not bound by anything Pelosi or Obama said. I see the wall as a waste of money. There are more sophisticated ways of securing borders and a wall is Trump appealing to idiots.

    I didn't catch his speech, and I highly doubt he offered antthing substantive. He first needs to stop grandstanding for his base and defend the very concept of a "border wall," because the concept has been debunked for decades.

    That's what you get when people figure out that they're not so sure that it's a good idea to worship a strongman, especially an emperor who has no clothes.

    Different geographic areas have different needs. In urban areas with flat terrain, walls are effective. The border patrol is begging for walls in those areas. But walls would be a waste of money in rural, mountainous terrain.

    I know that food stamps can be converted into crack and so do the welfare bums

    Please.

    Trump is going to bat for the American people, with the entirety of the establishment including the media against him.

    I suspect it terrifies you that its working.

    Look at you with your preconceptions.

    Reminds me of Pelosi, who issued a statement BEFORE he spoke.

    He isn't grandstanding-what he suggested today was very fair and bipartisan.

    Dems will reject it, without consideration as you have done.

    Absolutely.

    Im thinking of starting a thread on budget nutritious foods that people on welfare can stock up on before their checks are cut off by Democrats.

    Nancy issued a statement before Trump spoke?

    That's like the FBI clearing Hillary before performing an investigation.

    I sense a pattern.

    MSNBC is furious over Trump's speech.

    How dare Trump speak directly to the American people! And on a Saturday!?! That Trump is pure evil!

    I don't care.

    Border Patrol disagrees with you.
