Trump loves to use other people's money. Some people are conned easy enough to give out their personal information to phone callers. We have found those willing to give to a con man for a fake wall.

Then maybe they can meet with The Senate and The President and talk about something that will be taken seriously.

No sir. In due time. Slow burn for Mr. Trump.

Trump's approval rating among Republican voters is always extremely high, in fact historical.
What do Democrat voters think of Pelosi?
Failure.
Democrat have already lost 2020, thanks to Pelosi.

As soon as President Trump finds a way to say that no funding for the border wall is a win for him we will move on. He will reveal another change in the plan such as no funding for a border wall is the same as funding for a border wall and all will be well in the Kingdom of Trump. Oh Oh Oh I know: perhaps he will say I built it overnight. We have the biggest and best border wall ever constructed.


Looking forward to whatever it will be. The lights will be on late in the alternative facts room at the WH, for sure.

The "master dealmaker" promised many times over that Mexico would pay for the wall. I think he should go to Mexico to collect his 5 billion and not come back until he has it.

Government by tantrum, that's the way our POTUS operates.

if trump caves on the wall funding, he loses reelection in 2020. He knows it and so does Pelosi.

He has nothing to lose if he stands firm on his demand for wall/fence funding, even if it means keeping the government closed for months, and everything to gain if he gets his wall. The wall was his biggest campaign promise to his voters along with appointing conservative judges to SC.

House Democrats prepare vote to reopen government, as cracks appear in GOP opposition

Okay, forgive my ignorance, but is it just a matter of a House vote? Did the Reps vote for a shutdown, but now the Dems will push for a new vote? After all, our democracy is supposed to work to thwart a president who imagines himself to be a dictator.
It is more than 50%+1 that is needed but rather something truly bipartisan from which Congress can override a Presidential veto. The same as it has been for over two hundred years.
