President Trump Will Veto Any Bill That Weakens Current Pro-Life Protections
President Trump wrote in a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that he was alarmed about the reversal of pro-life protections.
In the letter, dated January 18, Trump asked the House of Representatives to "respect and continue these and other important pro-life protections. He added:
"I believe it is the most basic duty of government to guard the innocent. With that in mind, I will veto any legislation that weakens current pro-life Federal policies and laws, or that encourages the destruction of innocent human life at any stage."
Ironically, Trump also wrote that every human being has rights, dignity, and matchless value. But clearly not those on the other side of his wall.
Trump added that his administration "has the greatest respect for life," and said they would continue "to work tirelessly to implement commonsense pro-life policies.
Twitter users were quick to point the irony out, with Charlene Rallo asking: "So, "pro-life" as in pro-life for children who exist outside the womb? Or only "pro-life" for fetuses, but f off actual living, breathing children needing healthcare and food?"
Another said: "Trump is really pro-life, just ask him about the abortions his mistresses have had, while reported Luara Bassed added:
"I can’t get over the fact that Trump says he’s the most pro-life president ever and is trying to get Roe overturned, but is openly in love with a murderous dictator who literally fed newborn babies to dogs because the guy wrote him a nice letter."

GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN ENTERING 33RD DAY
The United States of America has entered its 33rd day of the Government shutdown. There is still no breakthrough in sight.
The House of Representatives has passed several similar bills, but President Trump has rejected legislation that does not include border wall funding.
He said he would keep the shutdown going until his $5.7 billion plan for a border is approved by Democrats in Congress.
Democrats, in turn, said they would not trade a temporary restoration of the immigrants' protections from deportation in return for a permanent border wall they view as ineffective.
As the government shutdown drags on, hundreds of thousands of federal workers are struggling to pay their homes, cars, and bills.
It even means hard times ahead from Melania Trump, as it put a damper on her Be Best campaign. It's currently the longest shutdown in the history of the United States.
