Trump has no easy way out. He says he wants to compromise but offers nothing. There is no reason for the Democrats to give in on a wall that the majority of the public does not support. Only the Trump cult wants it based on the phony border crisis. The article from Politico linked to below is alarming – he may not even end the shutdown if he issues a declaration of emergency to get the wall built.
He only cares what his base and Fox News think. He has no interest in being president of the entire country. He’s not a deal maker. Sometimes, he changes his mind after he appears to agree to something. He sees everything as winning and losing – that’s not making a deal.
