Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., on Tuesday said he’ll ask President Trump to withdraw his request for $5 billion in border wall construction funds, and to instead use that money to battle gun violence and white-supremacist extremism following two deadly mass shootings this month.

Schumer’s office said he will formally petition the president to put the funding toward gun violence research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Department of Homeland Security counterviolent extremism programs, FBI domestic-terrorism investigations and other programs.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The dual scourges of gun violence and violent white supremacist extremism in this country are a national security threat, plain and simple, and it’s time the Trump administration and Republicans in Congress starting treating them as such,” Schumer said in a statement.

“Now Republicans and this administration need to put their money where their mouth is when it comes to addressing gun violence and stopping the rise of domestic terrorism, especially stemming from white supremacy,” the statement continued.

    If nothing else, politicians are good at throwing money at problems that will never be solved.

    That would be more stupid than studying why bird’s migrate. I’ll tell Chuck for free – it’s miscontrued, misreporting by the hate filled left. Tell them to stop doing it and I bet we’d see a reduction in violent reactions.

    Good thing Trump isn’t as gullible as they hope he is. He fought hard to get those funds. Now these idiots want him to hand them over to them? Not going to happen. There is an R following his name on his voter registration card.

    Not in your life, Chucky. You can cry about it all you want, but not happening. Once you give someone something, it’s theirs, you don’t get it back.
