McConnell Warns Of ‘Potentially Catastrophic’ Outcome

While Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has been a solid supporter of President Trump in 2019, he is now warning the president that this one move could have a “potentially catastrophic economic impact.”

McConnell was telling reporters that he agreed with Trump in regards to there being a crisis at the southern border, but he urged caution as the fallout from shutting down the border could be severe. 

“We certainly have a crisis on the border. I think the president’s right about that. Closing down the border would have potentially catastrophic economic impact on our country, and I would hope we would not be doing that sort of thing,” McConnell stated.

This comes on the heels of Trump announcing that, “if we don’t make a deal with Congress, the border’s going to be closed. 100 percent.” 

“Or we’re going to close large sections of the border, maybe not all of it. But it’s the only way we’re getting a response, and I’m totally ready to do it,” he also shared.

President Trump makes a good point here,  if Democrats weren’t opposed to Trump every step of the way the issue would likely already be solved.

  1. McConnell, we got to where we are [roughly 30 MILLION illegals and a wide open border] because of NON-Patriots like YOU. You have NOT backed the president and here we are OVER TWO YEARS into President Trump’s first term and YOU managed to hold up MOST of his administrative appointments. You and Schumer.

    About time YOU worked with AND FOR President Trump’s agenda and quit resisting him. President Trump IS the leader of America. Pretty much the ONLY leader since you and Ryan ducked your obligation to America. Prove you should be re-elected. Lead, follow or get the Hell out of the way.

    1. On the border situation, I agree with you. Demorats & RINOs have been a total waste of do-nothings and obstructionists. They all refuse to fund the border wall or enforce the laws. Partly, RINOs are beholden to big business on the issue. On the appointments of judicial nominees, McConnell has done an admirable job against obstructionist dems who have blocked every Trump nominee by stretching out the debate time for every single nominee. For one, McConnell got two conservative Supreme Court nominees through the nomination process. He is threatening to use the “nuclear option” for votes and trying to cut debate time to a maximum of 20 minutes per nominee.

  2. Trying to explain logic to a Democrat is like trying to explain Einstein ‘s theory off Relativity to a monkey

  3. Who are these overly dramatic politicians who take Trump literally, and have absolutely NO sense for strategy. The dang “sky is not falling”!!
    Don’t they know that the Southern border CAN be closed without catastrophic economic results? Just close the border everywhere but the commercial border crossings, and beef up the inspections of EVERY vehicle and tractor trailer at those border crossings. That level of scrutiny will not cease commerce, only slow it a little. EASY TRADE FOR STOPPING THE INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY.
    McConnell sounds like “chicken little”.

  4. McConnell a “solid supporter of Trump”? Do you live in a parallel universe? McConnell is, at best an OCCASIONAL SUPPORTER, at best, when it suits him! McConnell is a MAJOR RINO/Establishment PUKE, in the pocket of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Business Roundtable and NeoCons!

    1. McConnell, better known as Sen. Mitch “SURRENDER MONKEY” McConnell, or Sen. Mitch “General Cornpone’s DISASTER” McConnell!

  5. Hey Mitch, when the GOP had the majority for two years in Congress, why didn’t you pass funding for the wall, resolve the DACA issue and revamp the immigration laws? Crying about the President taking action to get Congress to get off its collective butts and start doing things for the USA, is akin to blaming him for missed opportunities and the crisis at the border created by a do-nothing Congress for over 30 years

  6. SCREW MCCONNELL, HE MUST WANT, OR IS GETTING FREE DOPE ALONG WITH A LOT IN WASINGTON. IF TRUMP DOES NOT SHUT THE BORDER DOWN, HE IS DONE IN POLITICS. MITCH AND MOST ALL OTHERS IN WASHINGTON DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE TAX PAYERS OF AMERICA, THEY ARE WANTING TO BANKRUPT THIS COUNTRY AND BOY ARE WE HEADED THAT WAY. WE NOW KNOW WHO IN WASHINGTON, OR MOST OF THEM, THAT WANT FREE DOPE FLOWING ACROSS THE BORDER, AND COULD CARE LESS ABOUT, THE MURDERS, RAPIST, CROOKS, TERRORESTS, AND MILLIONS OF ILLEGALS THAT BLED YOU AND I THE TAX PAYERS, OVER 30 BILLION A YEARS IN SUPPORT, ONE WAY OR THE OTHER. MITCH MUST BE CRAZY OR ON DOPE.

  7. MCCONNELL IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST RINO’S IN CONGRESS AND HE IS ANOTHER SELL OUT OF THE MYTH OF 11 MILLION ILLEGAL ALIENS !!! DO ANY OF YOU REALLY BELIEVE THAT FAIRY TALE THAT THEY HAVE BEEN SPEWING FOR THE LAST 27 YEARS. THERE ARE OVER 40 MILLION ILLEGAL ALIENS IN THIS COUNTRY COSTING THE AMERICAN TAX PAYERS $1 TRILLION DOLLARS A YEAR. MILLIONS OF JOBS FILLING OUR SCHOOLS AND HAVE MURDERED OVER 20,000 AMERICANS THAT WE KNOW OF, ADD, RAPE DRUNK DRIVING, HOME INVASIONS DRUG DEALING AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND WE HAVE AN AMERICAN DESTROYING TIDAL WAVE!!!!!!! WAKE UP AMERICA !!!!!!!!

  8. I agree with President Trump Close Down The Border All The Way If Nothing Else Just Show The Mexico Government We Will Do It It Go Hurt Them & Keep It Closed Just Show Them. The Democrats At NOT Going Do Anything To Help The American People They Are For The Illegal Immigrates

  9. If McConnell can just now see the danger, he is not a leader! And, if he can see the danger, there should be a vote tomorrow on the floor of the Senate which will clearly fix the problems. Then the correctly-voting Senators have a chance of being re-elected (forgiving past sins), and leave the House to make its own decisions. No game, Mich! You are woefully late now!

  10. Yeah? Well, I would like to remind the world that McConnell is one of the do-nothing Rinos in Washington who sees a catastrophic end to everything that solves problems. I suppose that is why he sits on his hands all the time.

    I hope the President has the courage to go ahead and deal harshly with the immigration mess once and for all. McConnell and the rest of the do-nothing Congress could have solved the p0roblem years ago if they had a backbone. They are all wimps and I do not need their advice. You go, Mr. President!

  11. I agree with President Trump. Our Nation is not able to accommodate these people they are to many and more will take our Economy to nothing. Housing, Food and especially Food Stamps etc. There are to many of our own already
