I'm sure this will be deleted but ..... This article is so one sided and clearly writing by an anti-Trump person. Democrats don't want security. They hate Trump sop much that they are willing to sacrifice America's security and lives for their own agenda. That is to oust Trump. People. Stop watching CNN. Moderator, I would rather you delete it NOT edit it as you have done in the past.

No, they aren't willing to sacrifice $25 billion to a wall that won't meet the stated goals of the wall. And that doesn't cover the costs of maintenance, nor the cost of dealing with the ecological devastation that would come from placing a barrier in the path of animals migration, and preventing water flow from happening naturally.

"demand for billions of dollars to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border" If my memory serves me right, did DT demand that the Mexicans can and will pay for his wall?

Poor weak Trump and his little pet project that will never be built.

This shows that Trump had no real substance and his voters can see that their emporer is wearing no clothes.

Trump's shutdown retreat reveals weakness

Or maybe not...

Trump "caves" on border wall...

Dems claim victory...

Government re-opens...

Trump gives SOTU and again demands border wall funding...

Dems say no...

Trump takes away DACA offer making Dems look bad...

Trump declares emergency and builds wall anyway...

Trump wins!

Another anti Trump article, the writer is too quick to comment we haven't seen Trumps end plan should the 21 days expire and no deal is made.

The Democrats okayed every request from Clinton and Obama when they wanted money for a wall on the Southern Border.

This is a possible scenario that could well play out making the democrats look very foolish.

Andrew Chrip: The Democrats okayed every request from Clinton and Obama when they wanted money for a wall on the Southern Border.

And those are the areas where the boarder is safe and not being crossed. Don't know why they won't let Trump finish the job.

Thank you moderators for not deleting since1981's post. It's important to hear alternative voices. Esp so those expressing opinions based on emotion and mis-truths.

Because of this, we can sort out the value of data and make informed reasonings.

In the topic at the hand, that means we can probably adjudge Trump's brash demands on face value, "Give me what I want, and if you don't then that means, by default you accept murderers and rapists into our lives."

All this is important.

Did he show weakness, or did he show common sense?

It was a mistake to shut down the government the way he did, so it was certainly not a mistake to stop shutting down the government.

He showed common sense. It was not a mistake to shut down the gov't, it's too bad the Dems have no common sense and have to be pressured in this way to do their job and fund border security.

-4 ( +3 / -7 )

It does look to me from afar that Trump admitted that he made a mistake and should not have linked the controversial funding project with regular funding of the government.

Trump is playing poker. He forced their hand. Next week he will play his ace card and declare a national emergency.

Bugle Boy - I like to call it 4-D chess. It might not be until the week after next, but it will happen unless the Dems get with the program.

Trump wins!

Only the deluded can take a total and complete lay down to Pelosi and somehow figure it

can become a win for Trump. One wonders how people can support a total conman and a traitor to his country as well, but when you read this "Trump wins!" statement it all makes sense. Trump supporters are not reality based. There is just something fundamentally wrong with them when it comes to politics. Trump has not done a single thing to help these people, not one, but yet he has 34% support. It all about delusion, not collusion, but delusion. Not until Trump is in jail for his crimes against the USA will most, not all, of his supporters wake up from the fake news fantasy world they are in now.

Here is it is guys, Trump is a loser who has failed his entire life and he does not care about you or anybody but himself. You read it here first, not really, but maybe this time you will pay attention. He just gave up the wall which is why many of you voted for him. Just let it go. Good bye wall. Oh, and this just in, Mexico is relieved there will be no wall so they can stop not paying for it. So incredibly stupid the whole wall campaign issue has been and continues to be.

Oh, man, my sides hurt now, thanks for the gut-buster, zurc!

It's less than 3 weeks now, zurc. The clock is ticking on the Dems. This is their last chance. Tick. Tock.

That's never really caught on, has it. Too far removed from reality to be anything but laughable.

Obviously you haven't caught on to it.

Trump will get the wall built

O ye of little faith
