He owns it.
The majority doesn’t want the wall and more people blame Republicans than Democrats for the shutdown.
For the last time, Nancy Pelosi is not the Speaker of the House. Until she becomes Speaker on January 3, 2019, she cannot convene the House, schedule a vote or open the government. Republicans control all three branches of government. The #TrumpShutdown is entirely on them. pic.twitter.com/4N1W16IIXF

Americans are blaming Trump for shutdown that is likely to last into 2019. https://t.co/0A2mY3jZtK

Read some of the sample letters the government suggests federal workers could send to their creditors, as hundreds of thousands of them are expecting to begin the new year furloughed or working without pay due to the partial shutdown https://t.co/1AlbeNwilw pic.twitter.com/k5pFeuR9Yc

Narrator: Ths is a lie, the Democrats had already offered $1.6 billion for border security in exchange for DACA, everyone was on board, and Trump killed the deal at the last minute.
PS Note that Trump once again admits that it is HE who shut down the government. https://t.co/bm0q3mkKik

Our President is threatening to shut down the southern border over funding for his $5,000,000,000 wall. Experts say doing so would cost our economy hundreds of millions of dollars a day, maybe over a billion.
This isn't leadership, it's the world's most expensive temper tantrum.

“Donald Trump suggesting that President Barack Obama should have been fired for a government shutdown. Priceless.” https://t.co/5zjiaFooIe

Some pundits argue that the shutdown is no big deal because federal employees will eventually receive back pay.
What they forget to mention is that it also means that government contractors will be forced to work without pay or even be laid off. https://t.co/b6s3uk5n3i

Except there’s no amount of salesmanship that can change the fact that the shutdown is Trump’s fault. He asked for it, he said he’d take the blame for it, and he can end it by dropping his demand for a wall that the majority of Americans and Congress don’t want. https://t.co/j5vntnkHuL
