    Exclusive — Louie Gohmert: ‘I Don’t See Trump Winning’ Re-Election if Border Wall is

    Exclusive — Louie Gohmert: ‘I Don’t See Trump Winning’ Re-Election if Border Wall is Not Built


    December 20, 2018

    John Binder





    In an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Tonight, Gohmert told Senior Editors-at-Large Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak that Trump will be a one-term president if he does not build a southern border wall and that the U.S. “may be done” at that point.


    “If we don’t [build the wall], I don’t see President Trump winning in two years,” Gohmert said. “I don’t see the Senate keeping the majority. And I think this country, this little experiment of self-government may be done.”
    Gohmert continued:

    And this, by Paul Ryan, Kevin McCarthy, McConnell, and Cornyn convincing the President that ‘Gee, let’s just put this fight off until February.’ They’ve known for two years. [GOP leadership] didn’t want a wall because there are some mega-donor people that don’t want a wall. They like that money flowing and so, if they just keep saying we’re going to put the fight on down the road, we’ll push it a little further, a little further.


    Then all of the sudden, [Trump’s] up for re-election, the wall didn’t get built. It was his number one promise and they will defeat him if this isn’t done. I don’t see any way around it. [Emphasis added]


    I don’t like being right in my call before our conference in September that if we didn’t put money for funding a wall, passed at least through the House before the [midterm] election, then the people who elected Trump would not come out in the numbers to leave us in the majority [in the midterm elections]. I just knew that was going to happen. And so how did [the GOP leadership] respond? They responded by not putting any money for the wall and also canceling our last week of votes before the election. [Emphasis added]


    Listen to Gohmert’s full interview here:

    Gohmert mocked the idea of Senate and House Republicans passing a stopgap spending bill that includes no money for a border wall that also punts the issue down the road in two months when Democrats have control of the House.

    “That’d be so much better if we just wait to have this fight until Nancy Pelosi has the gavel,” Gohmert said sarcastically. “Gee, why didn’t I think of that? That is so much better.”


    He added:

    I can tell you what will happen if the wall, at least a significant part, is not funded, that is the Senate will lose the majority, the president will not win re-election and we’re in mega-trouble. I don’t mean the Republican Party, I mean the country because people in charge will want open borders, they’re wanting socialism. [Emphasis added]

    Gohmert says that despite claims from the Senate and House Republican Leadership, GOP lawmakers can pass funding for a border wall in an expedited budgetary process known as “reconciliation” that only requires a majority in the House and a simple majority of 50 votes in the Senate. There are 51 Republicans in the Senate.


    “I know they convinced the president that ‘Gee, if you don’t have the votes in the Senate, then the House shouldn’t vote on it.’ That’s ridiculous,” Gohmert said.



    “The way you get pressure on the Senate is to have the House pass the funding and then get every American that wants the wall burning up the phone lines to the Senate and the president out there on social media and on television saying ‘Let the Senators know, the Republicans will lose the majority if they don’t do this,'” Gohmert continued. “That’s how you get enough pressure to get it done, otherwise, it doesn’t.”

    I concur with Rep. Gohmert's opinion on this, but Ill take things one step further.

    I don't see Trump winning reelection after so many broken and unfulfilled promises on immigration issues period.

    The only way Trump could win a second term now would be if he got lucky with a very poor and extreme Democrat to run against.

    There is no way he could ever mobilize his base again on that level now that he has disappointed so many of us so deeply.

    We can count on Trump losing. Pence is weak.

    We need to act now and get a New Political Party started and get them campaigning now!

    No more Democrats, Republicans, Communists, Socialists! No NWO.

    We need two patriots and we need a female on the ticket...whether President or Vice President.

    HELLOOOOO OUT THERE....STEP UP TO THE PLATE.....OUR FUTURE DEPENDS ON IT!

    He's exactly right! We need a floor vote on this, now! Pushing the can down the road is no longer an option because once we lose the House, it's done ... there will then be zero chance for wall funding without a mass illegal alien amnesty included for the next two years. With floor votes on the issue, at best we win, at worse will bring the traitors out of the shadows!

    Absolutely true. Exactly how many times have I heard this right here on these forums. "Oh, but we don't have 60 votes in the Senate." One of our fellow members has said this repeatedly. Well, that's no excuse for not taking the vote. Allow the process to work and allow the American people to get actively involved ..... we would, without doubt, burn those phone lines up! We have the power to change minds if given the opportunity.

    In the past 2 years has Trump thanked, encouraged, or praised Gohmert, Jordan and the handful of R's who have stood with the American people on the immigration issue?

    Has he had lunch with them, invited them on Air Force one?

    Has he sent out tweets asking the citizens to get behind what they are fighting for?

    I haven't seen it, and it is very telling.

    No more "we need 60 votes" its all the D's fault.

    Hold the R's responsible.

    The future of our country depends on it.

    No more excuses!

    Mark Walker from North Carolina was just on the news and he was explaining about his bill amendment from the Study Committee that includes $5 billion for the wall and many billions more for more disaster relief from the hurricanes.
