Trump is going to declare his phony national emergency which will allow McConnell to take his thumb out of his own butt and allow the Senate to vote a bill to reopen. He and others will conveniently ignore the radical and unconstitutional expansion of executive powers by a wanna-be authoritarian but heck - it gets them off the hot seat and they will gladly welcome it.

Trump will lose in court and not get his wall but he does not care about that. He only cares about saying he fought and won.

Ask Nancy and the democrats?

Trump did it, said he was proud to do it. Pretty childish on his part to say he did it but it's up to someone else to undo it.

I’m glad the fed is shut. Tells loads what iron will President Trump has. I see this as a break from his son-in-law.

Why ask Nancy and the Democrats about a shutdown that Trump is on camera claiming ownership of? He can't even manage the shutdown he wanted so badly so we need to ask other people about it?

I think it gets resolved because the Republicans will realize that most people don't give a damn about the stupid wall, and everyone is sick to death of hearing Trump cackle about it. They will find a way to reopen the government, with or without him.

Too many of them are up for re-election next year.

It astounds me that Trump thinks the Democratically controlled House and GOP controlled Senate should/would give him money to build a wall when the GOP controlled Congress' funding bill, H.R. 695, a bill the Senate passed unanimously, didn't appropriate money to build new barrier structures on the southern border.
