    President Trump on Friday tweeted that he’ll make “a major announcement” Saturday afternoon concerning the ongoing partial government shutdown and the “humanitarian crisis” on the southern border.

    The announcement will occur at 3 p.m. at the White House, the president said. That was later delayed to 4 p.m

    My guess? Trump will reopen the government, claiming he is not going to continue standout with Democrats at the the expense of American people, blaming Pelosi personally for the hardships, and will challenge Democrats to put a comprehensive, superior National Security bill on his desk so he can immediately sign it.

    Would be a brilliant move on his part, and the Dems will come across as an obstructionists that they are.

    Either that, or US Army is about to start building Teh WALL!

    How is it brilliant giving the Democrats what they want? I hope you're right, it will show that Trump is not a negotiator at all.

    But of course it'd be brilliant. It were Dems who held the government hostage refusing to address a national security which Trump had insisted upon. Now, if Trump opens the government and insist the Dems come up with something better than the wall (and they claim, they already have the plan) the Dems will be forced to admit, they don't have any.

    No matter what they come up with Trump will never approve it. Why? Because he's a dick, doesn't know what he's doing.......and insane.

    Trump is being very logical in the whole wall affair to me. Watch Pelosi being grounded. Again.

    If you show a Democrat an illegal immigrant they will give you a reason that illegal immigrant should get to stay.

    This is why they don't want a physical barrier. They know all they have to do is step foot in America and they are in.

    Democrats illegal immigration platform

    Sneak into America
    Take advantage of health care and welfare paid for by Americans
    Vote for anti American globalist Democrats
    Victimize Americans
    Get deported from America
    Repeat

    I hope he announces a National Emergency and he will start building the wall.

    Meanwhile, leaving the government partially closed and thumbing his nose at the courts.

    He should start building and keep building no matter what any federal judge rules.

    Those actions will bring out those who are for open borders. Let the people see who the real rats are here.

    I saw somewhere that Trump is going to offer a compromise by giving he left their dreamers in exchange for the wall. If democrats turn it down they they'll show they're not open to making a deal, they'll be throwing the dreamers overboard, the government will stay shut down, and the left will have proven to everyone they're pro open borders and pro illegal immigration.

    If Trump makes that offer than all of the pressure now sits on Pelosi and Schumer, and Pelosi wouldn't be in the country if Trump didn't cancel her and her family's European vacation.

    I like that view.

    I would:

    • Go with the Emergency, but have my allies immediately file for an injunction at a friendly District Court... not the 9th. Throw their judge shopping out the door and do it yourself.
    • Start building immediately and open the government.
    • Tell those that were out of work they will receive all their pay and apologize that he couldn't get the Democrats to negotiate at all.
    • Tell the Dreamers he wanted to include them, but couldn't get the Democrats to even negotiate.

    Trump will win across the boards with everyone, but the diehard Leftists.

    Sounds like he will once again attempt to compromise with the left.

    That would not surprise me. The thing is that no one remembers a shutdown but Trump's supporters will remember if he does not do something.

    So, you're going shopping yourself.
    Well, that would be a lie (but who's counting). What "negotiation" did he do?
    He never wanted to include the Dreamers so that would be another lie and see above for the Dem "negotiation".

    Great post....lie about everything and do what you want. What a great country.

    Trump just swore in 5 new citizens in the Oval Office.

    Claiming that being a U.S. Citizen is "the greatest honor in the world".

    Trump has gotten beyond delusional.

    So basically the Democrats get what they wanted last time when Trump refused the money they were offering for his non existent crisis? Perfect.

    Limited funding bill for a short period with a statement saying to the effect; gird your loins, in 90 days I won't budge and the government can remain closed for the duration. Wrap it all in helping the working family language and there you might have it.

    Just a guess. I prefer to keep it shuttered till 2020.

    Five minutes to go before Trump's appearance. The only intel I've heard is that he's going to offer another pretty generous deal on DACA to the Democrats in return for the border security funding, and, that he'll work with them to get these "non-essential" government employees back on the payroll. I'm still trying to figure out why we even have them on the payroll if they're "non-essential", but we've got money to burn... right?

    Well, here we go... it's 4PM EST. Let's rock!

    Trump is offering the bipartisan Bridge Act. Democrats have already turned it down just before the speech.

    The crisis is real and well defined, with hundreds of Illegal Aliens violating our Southern border every day. The president sees it as a crisis, I see it as a crisis. You seems to see it as a perfect opportunity to stand on Rio Grande with welcome sign. In Spanish.

    Like Trump said of previous shutdowns, the person in charge takes the blame. That would be him, a pisspoor "negotiator."

    So you agree, Dems would look like pro illegal alien, open border obstructionists if they turn it down.
