It remains unclear if this new tactic will change Pelosi's mind but it is a step in the right direction. Border security and a functioning government depend on it.
President Trump’s re-election campaign said Friday it'll send faux red bricks to the offices of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer until Democrats agree to fund a border wall.
To raise money for the 2020 race, the Trump campaign is asking donors to chip in $20.20 for each fake brick, which will be sent to the Democratic congressional leaders amid the fight that underlies the extended partial government shutdown.
“Since Chuck and Nancy keep stonewalling the president, we’ll send the wall to them, brick by brick, until they agree to secure the border,” said Brad Parscale, Trump’s campaign manager.
Parscale said the bricks will include facts about “the crime, drugs, and human trafficking that result from open borders.”
