    Indeed. Trump is likely to lose in 2020 and at the same time take down the GOP Senate.

    It appears you are completely unaware of the duties of congress.

    Ask trump. He and a few of his congressional cronies went to Iraq when all those people were suffering under the trump shutdown.

    I recall there was a deal that trump rejected in the eleventh hour fifty ninth minute, after it was passed by both houses.

    If McConnell actually did his job and put the various bills to reopen the government to a vote in the senate, the shutdown would be over. Seems he doesn't think the senate is a co-equal branch of the US government. (but then again he has his own russian connections to think of - his brother in law apparently).

    Back by tuesday when congress re-convenes. Nothing can get done when trump's negotiating tactic is "gimme what i want" or no deal, since pelosi has no incentive to give it to him. He created the shutdown and perpetuates it, over his stupid Wall.

    Course many americans fall for the bumpersticker equation that the Wall = border security and those that don't support the Wall (that america is paying for) are advocating "open borders". But I get that many trumpians buy into that bullshit, along with a bunch of paranoid racist nationalists.

    Nope. I'm a retired teachers of high school students and adults who doesn't collect Social Security, use Medicare, who never needed a teacher salary, and splits time between living in the USA, Canada, and traveling the world. Back for Christmas from Australia, now spending time in Vancouver, but then off to NYC and Europe in a couple of months.

    The guy who I had the distinct honor of dispatching to political oblivion was doing his evil deeds more than 30 year ago.

    No the president is not ready to sign whatever the Senate and congress pass. The entire shutdown is because he reneged on this pledge in the first place, but followed thru on his proud threat to shut it down.
    He then walked out on negotiations when told he wasn't going to get what he wanted.

    Imagine vandalizing national security in the name of national security. The coast guard (who intercept 85% or so of illegal drug seizures ain't getting paid. Min wage TSA workers at airport security ain't getting paid. The friggin secret service ain't getting paid. Border agents and ICE and customs officers ain't getting paid.

    Trump is holding all those workers and all their dependents HOSTAGE for his wall.

    BTW, have you seen any plan for this wall? Or even what the thing will look like? After 2 years you'd think if it was such a national security emergency that Trump would have had it all in place and ready to rock and roll. But no, there isn't even an assessment of how much private property must be confiscated. America doesn't have a clue what his "wall" will look like.

    Its just blind bumpersticker partisan bullshit that exploits ignorance and fear and justifies vandalizing the government and its employees.

    Sure thing. The person who is second in line to the presidency should travel without security on commercial airlines.

    I doubt pelosi hates trump as much as trump hates pelosi.

    Bottom line is trump is asking for 5.7 billion for barriers including frnces which as you say Democrats have previously supported and financed. Now they say not one dollar for walls , fences ,steel slat barriers or barriers of any kind and refuse to negotiate and the reason is obviously purly political.

    What people can't seem to understand is that illegals are doing work that Americans don't want. As I said, they should come in as migrant workers without permanent residency.

    Illegal aliens from Latin America made jobs that use to be good paying jobs undesirable today.

    Correction, the VP is first in line to stand in for POTUS. As in "one heartbeat away from the Presidency"

    A loony liberal elitist slush is second in line. As in "two heartbeats away to the Presidency."

    That's not true. Sure they'll do anything. But they are also doing construction work such as foundations, masonry, stucco, plumbing, electrical, carpentry, roofing, painting, drywall hanging, interior and exterior trim like hanging doors, baseboard, soffits, facia and siding, installing windows, sod laying, landscaping, and general labor. Not to mention road work and manufacturing. These are all formerly blue collar jobs for high school grads, early dropouts, and anyone looking to start their own business in these fields. Illegals also shack up in one apartment/house and wire their savings back to their families, sucking that resource right out of our economic picture. And it ain't chump change when you're looking at between fifteen and thirty million illegals doing it.

    No, the vice president is first in line to replace the president. The second in line is the Speaker of the house.

    English not your first language?

    This is on the verge of getting very serious

    I’ve been out of touch today so I have to catch up on developments

    Hopefully trump remains committed

    Americans on welfare should do all the jobs that illegals do

    No able-bodied American should be allowed to say that a job is beneath them
