Lost in all of this is the fact that for 2 years Republicans have had full control of government and haven’t funded this wall. Now all of a sudden Trump is blaming the democrats? The funding could have been passed without a single democratic vote for 2 years.

You’re missing the point. The House of Representatives never passed such a spending bill. The democrats never had to filibuster anything. Why didn’t the house pass trumps wall funding?

You have fallen for the trick that the Dems keep lying about. You obviously don't understand how the Senate works. Senate rules require 60 votes to pass any bill through cloture. Without cloture, there can be no vote on a bill. The GOP only had 51 Senators. Please explain which 9 Democrat Senators were going to vote with them on wall funding. If you are correct in your assertion that "for 2 years Republicans have had full control of government", a great deal legislation would have been made law than just the wall. Get your facts straight.
