Given that after five weeks, Congress has finally passed a funding bill, and the President immediately signed it, what are Democrats doing to show good faith in negotiating a long term solution?
Why should they? This was nothing but a childish trumpertantrum. He owns it.
2no ... I get that you must make excuses for the failures of Democrats. They and they alone are the ones who caused the shutdown by forcing the failure of the funding resolutions. MrT was forced to shutdown the unnecessary parts of the government because of a lack of funding.
They fear Pelosi- so nothing....
Trying to destroy this country in good faith of course.
Bumping their gums giving lip service to each other on how well they obstructed the Security of this Republic!.....for this, a long walk to a short rope upon the gallows of the People's Justice!.....let justice be done.....
They won’t and shouldn’t vote for a wall. Accept that and move on.
Guy ... try as you must to change the subject, that’s not the question! Oops!
Oh, this isn’t about the wall 😉😂
Guy ... take a breath, I get that you’re hysterical. What was the question asked?
What is it about then guy?
The Democrats work with anyone? The world would end first.
At least before they would work with Trump.
I don't see why they have to negotiate with Trump. Trump needs to work with them. They have nothing to lose. DACA is protected, the people are against the wall. It was Trump who shut it down, why should the Dems do ANYTHING to help Trump get his wall?
They really don’t have to, it was Trump’s shutdown, so he needs to show the good faith.
I tried voting it up, but too many people voted it down already.
Zim ... thanks for the upvote, even though you’re totally wrong about the cause of the Democrat shutdown that MrT inappropriately took credit for. Democrats caused the shutdown by blocking funding for the government.
Let’s be clear, you don’t think Democrats have a responsibility to negotiate for funding of the government, right!?
Think- sorry don’t feel sorry for Trump or the GOP, when they had every lever of government for two years and they didn’t build the wall. Total incompetence, you all your conned!
Think- all parties should negotiate, and I’m for compromise
Zim ... FINALLY! All that silly leftist pontificating and you finally admit that Nimwhit Nancy screwed up and should have put the American people above her twisted and disgusting political nonsense.
Think- no I think she handled Trump’s childish temper tantrum, beautify!
Zim ... you keep repeating that delusion. MrT was the only adult in the situation. Nimwhit Nancy selfishly went off on one selfish indulgent boondoggle after another as MrT maturely waited for Her to come to work. Given that she’s got the attention span of a gnat, he patiently waited for Democrats to finally send him a bill to fund the government. He signed it immediately.
The obstructionist Democrats caused the shutdown. Those same morons prolonged it.
But those Democrat failures are all thankfully in the rear view. This question is intended to focus on whether or not the petulant third grade Democrats will continue their childishness or whether they will finally come back to the table to negotiate like adults.
Think- I realize you are bitter that the Democrats took the House because Americans wanted a check on Trump and his childish behavior, but you just cannot continue the blame Nancy for the shutdown debacle that Trump admitted to causing, I told you it wouldn’t go well for him, and now he is at the lowest point at his very destructive time in the WH.
Zim ... stop with the lipstick on the moronic Democrat pig. You know that MrT couldn’t CAUSE the shutdown. Only Congress failed to do their job by passing a spending bill. Once they finally and grudgingly passed a bill the president signed it WITHOUT DELAY.
The ENTIRE delay came from Democrats in Congress failing to propose or support any funding bills.
NOT ONCE did MrT say that he would take credit for CAUSING the shutdown. That is simply a twisted lie from Democrats. I welcome you to listen again— this time more careful — to the words of the president when he delay with Nimwhit Nancy and Cryin Chuck in the White House.
Lie? I clearly heard him say he would take full responsibility for the shutdown( which he did cause) and told Mr Schumer he wouldn’t blame him. It’s on tape for all our eyes to see. 🤷🏻♂️
Zim ... I get that you’re emotional, but you’re wrong. MrT could NOT have caused this shutdown. As the only adult in the room, he did say he would be responsible. That’s why he stayed in his office throughout the shutdown while every last Democrat went off and played.
Without authorization to spend the money, is MrT required to shutdown unnecessary parts of the government?
Think- of course he could cause the shutdown with threatening a veto, which he clearly did, certainly you don’t have to go back to civics class now?
Zim ... that’s all speculation! The only facts that we have is that Democrats actually took actions to avoid funding the government l. As a result of those actions MrT was FORCED to close the unnecessary parts of the government.
What motivates Democrats to do the moronic things they do is less relevant than the actual moronic things that Democrats do!
Think- untrue the Dems and the GOP
Agreed to everything, then Ann Coulter scared wimp boy Trump and he caved, that’s the only real fact here! You and other Trump supporters can continue with your delusions, but it will only create another debacle.
Zim ... which Republicans voted against the funding resolution in December? Which Democrats voted for it?
The fact is that the lemming leftist Democrats voted enmasse against the funding. That vote is precisely the reason the President was forced — by law — to shut the unnecessary parts of the government. It’s time for you to deal with the facts!
Think- Again the vote wasn’t put up yet, Trump would have signed, he changed his mind, besides the GOP still had everything and they were too incompetent, Think I know it is very difficult to ever criticize Trump for anything, the cult is very strong( scary in fact) but this entire shutdown was a fiasco, Trump had no real plan, and now has no leverage for talks now. Go ahead shutdown the government again or declare emergency, the American people won’t support either. The definition of insanity, doing the same things over and over expecting different results. 🤪🤪🤪
