Press TV Debate, Mike Harris on the Pelosi Trip


The U.S. government shutdown which began over a costly proposed border wall with Mexico has now turned into a petty political battle between President Donald Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Trump denied permission for Pelosi to use military aircraft for a trip to Afghanistan. That followed Pelosi’s request for Trump to postpone his State of the Union address amid a political deadlock over the U.S. longest-ever federal shutdown.

  1. I like Mike Harris’s comments except I disagree on one point. Farm work is very hard work, and I don’t think we have enough anglo American high school and college students and other workers who would be willing to work in the fields on a hot 110 degree day harvesting watermelons.

    We need to have the wall because of the gangs, drugs and human trafficking that is occurring, but I would also like to see it made made easier for law abiding people from around the world to be able to immigrate here just as easily as my grandparents and great grandparents did – they came through Ellis Island very easily, but so too, did Mafia and other crime families from around Europe. Nowadays it is easier to check people’s backgrounds now, so I think we can afford to be more generous in allowing law abiding people to get work visas etc.

    Please correct me if I am wrong, but I think Donald Trump has already been more generous about letting in more immigrants legally than Obama and Clinton ever were.

  2. Current republicans are domestic enemies as the Democrats should give tRump his wall and then let the knuckle dragging racist Evangelicals demonstrate what poor government really is!

    The future of America? Look at California. A Democratic super majority with republicans not even qualifying to be a dog catcher.

    To be a modern Republican is to put a foreign power first run by billionaire corporations and nothing for the people.

    The religion of white folks? Dominionist Evangelical Israel first fake Christianity. To much truth for many of you?

    The cloud blinding most of you comes from Tel Aviv….
