He drew a line in the sand, as it were, and dared the DNC to cross it.
They did. And he had nothing when they did.
And he folded. He got NOTHING. No commitments, no partial payment for the Wall, not even a promise (which the DNC types have broken before anyway) to come up with some real, actual working border security.
He damaged his brand, disappointed his supporters (again) and made the Left stronger.
(Why didn’t he do something while the RNC held the reigns?)
Was this just a power play? (one that he lost, badly).
I am disgusted. I’d have rather seen him keep the shutdown happen than this. Do an EO saying that (at least) “essential” employees get paid.
But instead he folded.
But, at least we don’t have Hillary. There is that, even if that isn’t much.
