The president of the United States, Donald Trump, has fulfilled this January, 20th two years at the head of the country in the middle of a closure of the government Administration, which has no hope of solution, and with harsh criticism of the Democrats for not accepting his plan to finance a wall on the border with Mexico.
Despite not having any act on his agenda, the president marked the political news with a frenetic activity on Twitter, where he charged against the leader of the Democratic majority in the House, Nancy Pelosi.
“Nancy Pelosi and some of the Democrats rejected my offer yesterday before I even spoke, they do not see crime and drugs, they only see 2020 (when the next presidential elections are scheduled) – they are not going to win,” he tweeted.
Nancy Pelosi and some of the Democrats turned down my offer yesterday before I even got up to speak. They don’t see crime & drugs, they only see 2020 – which they are not going to win. Best economy! They should do the right thing for the Country & allow people to go back to work.

He added: “They should do the right thing for the country and allow people to return to work.”
On Saturday, the president offered the Democrats to extend for three years two immigration protections canceled by himself, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) -in this case suspended only for some countries-, in exchange for financing a wall on the border, which Pelosi was discarded.
For Trump, the president of the House of Representatives “has behaved so irrationally and has gone so far to the left that she has now officially become a Radical Democrat.”
“She is so petrified by the leftists in her party that she has lost control … And by the way, clean the streets of San Francisco, they are unpleasant,” said Trump, referring to the district that Pelosi represents.

The dispute between Trump and the Democrats over the funds for the wall has caused the closure of the government Administration, which today turns 30 days.
In another of his tweets, the president clarified that the measures he announced yesterday are not an “amnesty” for the “dreamers”, as the beneficiaries of DACA are known.
“No, Amnesty is not part of my offer, it’s a three-year extension of DACA, Amnesty will only be used in a much larger deal, whether it’s immigration or something else, otherwise there will not be a big push to eradicate the 11,000 additional people who are here illegally – but be careful, Nancy, “he said.
On the other hand, several democratic voices reiterated their reluctance towards Trump’s proposal. New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who has announced her intention to stand as a candidate for the 2020 presidential election, assured CBS television: “I do not believe anything about him (Trump),” said the New York State legislator. York And he remembered that it was the president “who in the first place got rid of the protections of DACA”.
For his part, the chairman of the National Security Committee of the lower house, Democrat Bennie Thompson, did not rule out that his party accepts “in certain cases” the construction of the wall.
“The notion that we can not have barriers is something that is not true, but again … You have to have a plan, and the plan that the president started with is not where he is now, and we do not know where will be (Trump) tomorrow,” he lamented.
The case of DACA is in the hands of the Supreme Court, which has a conservative majority, which must decide on the future of 700,000 “dreamers”, benefited by the program, promulgated in 2012 by the then president, Barack Obama, and temporarily regularizing young people. undocumented people who came to the country when they were minors.
The TPS, which was canceled by Trump only for some countries, protects more than 430,000 immigrants, of whom 350,000 are Central Americans, and is granted to nationals from places affected by wars or natural disasters.
The situation on the border also appeared indirectly in a patriotic video that Trump posted on Twitter today to commemorate the second anniversary of his inauguration, in which he insisted that he always puts “America First”.
