With Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial during his one term as President beginning this week, I thought that it would be a good time to do a flashback to the winter of 2018-2019. Here is a story from the Campbell Alternative News section of Out of My Mind.
The War of The Wall
Nancy Pelosi vs Trump

December, 2018 – January, 2019: Forget the “Rumble in the Jungle” and the “Thrilla in Manilla”, the fight of the 21st Century could very well be “The War of The Wall”, which pits United States President, Donald Trump against Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. After two rounds, it looks as if President Trump may be in the fight of his life, and may even have met his match.
Trump opened with a strong, one two punch, a demand for $5.7 billion dollars for a wall, and a threat to shut down the government. Pelosi blocked by saying “NO,” unfortunately leaving herself open for a low blow by Trump, a partial government shutdown.
Trump finished Round One by bobbing and weaving, refusing to give any ground for anything less than complete surrender to his wishes. Trump’s continuous jabs and low blows brought the government to its knees. Round One was all Trump.
Pelosi came back strong in Round Two, hitting Trump right where it hurt, his ego. She nailed him with a solid right cross, stating that due to security risks caused by unpaid security staff, she could not allow the State of the Union Address to move forward until the government reopened.
This tactic sent Trump reeling. He tried to counterpunch by denying Pelosi the opportunity to visit US troops in Brussels, Egypt and Afghanistan, but Pelosi merely shrugged it off and continued her attack, unfazed. Trump tried to get around her guard by advising her that the Secret Service said there was no security risk, but she quickly blocked him and struck back with a solid “NO!” He attempted to get around Pelosi’s guard, by coming up with other excuses to get into the House, but she hit him with another “NO!”
