What DJT WON: historic funding levels for ICE & BP, triple number border wall miles a CR would’ve given him, increased cap on criminal illegals that can be jailed, plus 44% more detention beds. Proud of AL Sen. Shelby who led block of Pelosi’s moves!

It’s a compromise, so by definition, no one really won. If I had to pick a winner out of this, I’d say Pelosi... Trump threw a fit because he didn’t get what he wanted, and she was the first to shut him down.

Have you considered that he’s a negotiator, so he knew from the start that he would never get $5.7B, but threw that number out there to get what he finally DID get? That’s what negotiators do....they start out WAY higher than what they expect to get, expecting a counter offer. That maybe he’s secretly laughing at all of them because he actually got more than he thought he would? LOL

It’s not spin....it’s what all good negotiators do!

Did you really believe that he expected to get the top dollar that he asked for? He wrote “The Art of the Deal” after all!

You ask more than you expect to get, and that makes the other person think they’re getting a good deal when they give you a lot less than you asked. Anyone that has ever sold a used car knows this is how to go about it! You both walk away feeling great. You get the original amount you were willing to settle for, and they think they got a steal of a deal! LOL

Do good negotiations usually involve extortion attempts? Also, Art of the Deal was written by a ghostwriter.

What extortion? Do you have proof that he used a ghost writer for the book? And you do know that even when there is a ghost writer that they interview the person they’re writing about, get details from them, and then that person approves the book before it’s published, right?

Lot’s of people use them, especially for autobiographies.

Well, 4JC, that still means Trump didn’t write that book, even if it is his ideas summarized. Also, if he was really smart, he would’ve gone in at the highest price (is. 25 billion dollars)... I’ve worked in business, and you start at the highest point and work your way down, that’s how it’s done. Trump’s business seems to be ruining things... this compromise was definitely favorable to the Dems, and many conservatives agree (and are upset by him signing it).

I said even IF he didn’t write it. Do you have PROOF that he didn’t? I don’t think he could’ve started with $25B for one year. You have to remember they do this every year, don’t they? I believe that he started at the highest he thought he could push it to.

I’m not saying this was a TOTAL win for Trump. Did you read the article I linked? It didn’t even say it was a total victory for him, and that many think he lost. But these are things he DID win. It didn’t turn out NEARLY as badly as Pelosi tried to make it.

I’m not real thrilled about it, but this article did make me feel a little better about it, and I’m proud of AL Senator Shelby for leading the group that blocked some of the stuff Pelosi was calling for, which this article details.

Well, he only has two years left in office... two budgets only adds up to ten million, definitely not the twenty-five (at least) that he needs. Seems like it’ll be a semi-wall.

And there is a lot of evidence that he was the ghost-writer... in Trump’s own admission, he was at least a co-author. But this is a minuscule issue, isn’t it?

Two years.....OR six years, depending on how you think things are going!
And ANYTHING will be better than 8 foot tall pieces of sheet metal that an 8 month pregnant woman can climb!

I wasn’t the one that brought up the ghost writer issue.

I can deal with it. He will build the wall, that is the most important thing!
Once he finishes fighting with Democrats, (that work harder to protect illegals than they do US citizens), it will get done!

Me, too! This article made me feel a LOT better about it, and I’m glad that Sen. Shelby blocked Pelosi’s lower bed number and other things she was trying to pull!

Shelby who led the block of several of Pelosi’s moves!
