Shutdown Monday: We Need a Hero. Enter Trump

The Senate could be hopelessly divided, which doesn't bother Trump. The Hero will give Democrats everything they want.

The Senate adjourned Sunday night with no agreement to end the government shutdown, which affects hundreds of thousands…

President Trump could have averted the shutdown--he had conservatives and Democrats convinced there was a deal to give Dreamers some form of residency (amnesty) while putting lawmakers on a path for funding the border wall. But in the Oval Office, the man who uttered an unprintable term pulled a bait and switch. He see-sawed so much on the terms of a funding deal that the shutdown was almost unavoidable.
