The UN is gloating. While President Trump was threatening to take away their funding, RINOs in Congress just teamed up with Democrats to ensure the United Nations gets everything Obama promised them.
With Lindsey Graham's help, the Senate Appropriations Committee passed an amendment to block President Trump from defunding the UN Climate Treaty and force him to continue making payments to the climate body. While West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin voted to kill the amendment, but Repulican Senators Lamar Alexander (TN) and Susan Collins (ME) voted with the Democrats. Because Graham abstained, that was enough for the bill to pass through the committee.
The Left is claiming a victory. Trump may have announced the United States' withdrawal from the treaty, but these two Republicans were enough to force the US to keep making these payments anyway.
The good news? This isn't over. There is still time to fix this, but we need to act right now!
This bill still needs to get voted on by the full Senate. Then, it would have to get approved in the House.
Trump can't veto this one. Otherwise, he would end up cutting off funding to entire Federal agencies. The Left knows this, so they are working overtime to make sure it hits his desk as amended.
Barack Obama never put the UN Climate Treaty up for a ratification vote. He knew that he would never get the 67 votes in the Senate that the Constitution requires. So, he signed it on his own and began unconstitutionally implementing it by executive order.
Now that President Trump is dismantling it, Democrats are trying to block him. And thanks to these two Republican cowards, they are closer than ever to accomplishing this!
Democrats and RINOs cannot be allowed to commit the United States to this international treaty!
This is what the DC swamp looks like. Trump is trying to drain it and the swamp creatures are starting to bite back. They don't care about protecting American sovereignty or following the Constitution.
To them, the only thing that matters is whether the ends justify the means. And as far as they are concerned, propping up the United Nations' globalist bureaucracy is more important than obeying the Constitution.
They know they don't have the votes to ratify the treaty, so they are working behind the scenes to attach the treaty's funding (what Obama promised the UN) into the budget.
Liberals in Congress tried to sneak it in without anyone noticing. They failed.
Now it is up to YOU to make sure they are defeated!
Help us end this right now,
