Trump Breaks Silence On Wall Negotiations, Reminds Dems Who’s Boss

The border wall negotiations seem to have broken down and Trump is letting the Democrats have it.

Mark Meadows, a key Congressional ally of Trump said today Trump will get it done even if he uses the emergency order route.

But that is unnecessary if the Democrats would just negotiate in good faith, which Trump makes clear they are not.

Look, we all know how this ends – each side gives a little and finds common ground, but it seems Trump is the only one moving to the center on this issue. The Democrats will regret this stubbornness more than choosing Hillary to run against Trump.

From The Hill: President Trump on Sunday sought to pin blame on Democrats for what lawmakers described as faltering negotiations on border security funding.

“I don’t think the Dems on the Border Committee are being allowed by their leaders to make a deal,” Trump tweeted. “They are offering very little money for the desperately needed Border Wall & now, out of the blue, want a cap on convicted violent felons to be held in detention!”

In a follow-up tweet, Trump suggested that Democrats “want a Shutdown” to change the subject from a week of difficult headlines. He referenced his State of the Union address, which received largely positive marks in polls, and the ongoing scandals that have engulfed the top three elected Democrats in Virginia.

No Democrat in Congress has publicly said they support shutting down the government, though acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he could not rule out the possibility of another shutdown over Trump’s border security demands.

The president agreed to reopen the government until Feb. 15 while a bipartisan group of lawmakers negotiates a deal to fund border security.

Some members of the group expressed optimism a deal could be reached by Monday with both parties voicing a desire to compromise, but negotiations appeared to have stalled as both sides remain dug in.

Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) said Sunday that Democrats have pushed to cap the number of immigrants who can be detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), presenting a new obstacle for negotiators.

The Democrats just can’t help themselves and have snatched defeat from the jaws of victory by simply refusing to compromise effectively.

They are overplaying their hands because without some funding Trump won’t sign it and will just go it alone.
