The Democrats have the ball in their court. They are the ones not opening the government with their complete obstruction and unwillingness to compromise the President will open the government today if the Dems compromise. He already went from 25 billion to 5.7
The Democrats offered Trump 25 billion dollars, which was the complete cost of that wall last year, but Trump did not want to give them what they wanted. Trump destroyed that deal and Democrats pulled it off the table. He wants to build chaos and division and not a wall.
And he claims to be a great deal maker.
He is a great steal maker. That is his entire life.
$5.7B does not build the whole wall. It is the down payment on a $25B to $70B wall that will take 15 years to build. Orange Boy said the shutdown is on him. AND he said Mexico will pay for his wall. What happened to that promise?
15 years to mitigate the "crisis"! Funding for technology and immigration workers to process claims more efficiently would see things improve much more quickly.
They already took care of their side of the court with legislation to reopen parts of the government and they have offered money for border security. I believe that makes it Trump's ball.
Liar! He refused to sign the bill last year giving him $25billion. He held out because of @seanhannity. #TrumpShutdown #NoMoneyForTheWall #ReopenGovernmentNow Also #MuellerKnowsEverything #MuellerIsComing
Mitch McConnell is blocking any attempts to open government. He's refusing to even allow a vote on anything that opens any part of government that has been shut down.
President Trump and a Republican-controlled Congress had two years to pass a budget that included funding for a wall, but they did not make it a deal-breaker until now.
How many deals has trump already blown up? He's agreed & then takes it back. Chuck & Nancy fell for it last year & the Republicans fell for it in December. Its trump’s own fault that no one trusts him.
You You he admitted that Mexico want paying for it! He had 2 years and now all of a sudden there is a crisis! No wall for you jackass! You OWN the shutdown, the buck stops with YOU!
Uhh he said 100x Mexico was paying for it. So why don't you follow him to Mexico to go pick it up.
Our national deficit increased by 2 trillions in last two years. Flint, Michigan still doesn’t have running drinking water. ACA/“Obama care” defunded due to no money. Billions of dollar cuts from the “Food Stamp” program for not having money but sure we have to shutdown for WALL.
DEMS are ready to sign the 25B it was Trump that would have nothing H to do with it because it included DACA. Another group of people that Trump is holding hostage. Also the Dems and Republicans had a bill go all the way to his desk and didn't sign it because of FOX.
Who ties your shoes for you?
Why did trump wait 2 years for the CRISIS? He's been offered multiple bills to keep the government open and HE refuses. He could open the government so people could get paid and feed their families, then negotiate. But, he would rather hold Americans hostage.
Not so. Do not forget last year w/R controlled Senate, he would not deal. Even w/25B funding for wall. Also his own words : I will be prod to own a shut down. Also can't make a deal when you leave negotiation. #TrumpShutdown
One more note worthy item to remember. Didn't he say he would be proud to shut government down. He took full ownership.
