“The Democrats have been stonewalling President Trump for too long, as the President remains fully committed to make a deal to secure our border,” campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement. “Now the American people can send a message directly to Chuck and Nancy on a faux red brick that tells them to build the wall.”

Printed on the bricks will be facts that the campaign says highlights the consequences of “open borders."

“Because they clearly don’t understand the facts about the critical need for a wall and border security, our bricks will teach them the truth about the crime, drugs, and human trafficking that result from open borders,” Parscale said. 

The campaign also set up a website called Build the Border Wall, where respondents can donate their money and choose if they want their brick to be sent to Pelosi or Schumer. They can send up to seven bricks to each with one donation.

The email comes as the White House and congressional Democrats are at an impasse over border wall funding as a partial government shutdown enters its 28th day. Trump is demanding that $5.7 billion for the wall be included as part of any spending deal to reopen the government, but Democrats have thus far vowed to keep the border wall debate separate from funding legislation.
