Trump listed all the things border wall could have stopped, but why GOP didn't fund wall construction for 2 years and let crimes happen?


I dont get it. Republicans control Congress, White House, and Supreme Court. They could have gotten it done easier in 2 years. Why wait till the 11th hour to try to get this done when Democrats were about to take control of the House?

Update 2:

@Lois - you can't filibuster the budget.

    They believed in open borders and free entry into this country for rapists right up until the Democrats took over the House.

    Quietly the all Republican Congress sent dozens of bills, but none of them had "wall money" That says the Republican Congress wasn't too Keen on a boarder wall, either.

    Because the majority of Americans don't want money wasted on an ineffective speed bump (as evidenced by Hillary's 3 million vote victory & the '18 mid term). The repubicunts in congress are not that foolish.

    Until he opens the government Trump can gag on his shutdown.

    because trump didn't need a manufactured "crisis" back then

    because Repubs never had a filibuster proof majority in the senate during the last 2 years.

    edit: oh you're right, my bad.
