At midnight last night, roughly 25% of the government shut down because of one person and one person alone, President Trump. President Trump has been on a destructive, two-week temper tantrum. Demanding the American taxpayer pony up for an expensive and ineffective border wall that the President promised Mexico would pay for.
Everyone knew yesterday, long before the house vote that the President's wall lacked 60 votes in the Senate. It is proven to lack even 50 votes. It will never pass the Senate not today, not next week, not next year. So, Mr. President, President Trump. If you wanna open the government, you must abandon the wall, plain and simple.
