So we are on day 20 of a government shutdown, because Trump cannot get what he wants. He insists that most of the people going without a paycheck are happy to do so because they agree with him. He says he can relate to their dilemma (HOW???). And he's acting like a little kid who isn't getting his way. He wants a wall and nothing else. Border security in any other fashion isn't good enough for him - he wants his physical barrier and that is that. And, he's talking about maybe declaring a national emergency to get the funds. How does one predict that something MIGHT be an emergency?? A terrorist attack is an emergency. Not getting funding for a physical barrier (that wouldn't be built overnight anyway) is NOT an emergency. And best of all, now he's saying he never said that Mexico would pay for the wall directly Does he not realize how many times he was seen saying that on camera??? Oh, he probably will say that he didn't mean that every single time he said it. Yes, I talked a lot about the wall here because it ties directly into the shutdown. And no, being against the wall is NOT the same as being against border security. I don't know anyone who is truly against border security. Just because Trump says it doesn't make it a fact. It has been said many times by Democrats who are against the wall that they DO want border security, but they disagree with Trump as to the best method in which to do that.
