As is often the case, Charles Krauthammer hit the nail on the head with regard to Democrats in Congress. He said that “the Democrats are not negotiating in good faith. They want it to shut down. They understand the press will blame it on the president. They’re not going to hand him any victories.” All the more reason to question whether it makes sense for Trump to be pushing so hard for funding for the border wall. If it results in a government shutdown, Republicans will take the hit.
