Default USA government hits partial shutdown after $5bn Wall spending deal fails

This was predicted
At least he says its his Shutdown.



[The deal was over funding for President Donald Trump's wall on the
Mexico border, which is staunchly opposed by Democrats.
Without a deal, funding for around 25% of the government
expired at midnight (5am GMT).
Nine cabinet-level departments and dozens of agencies,
including homeland security, transportation, interior,
agriculture, state and justice,
will be affected by the shutdown.
Mr Trump had said any impending shutdown
could last "a very long time" as he blamed Democrats
over the failure to agree a deal on spending.]

It's nothing to do with democrats, Arista. Trump said he would be "proud" to shut down the government. He doesn't have the votes to do what he wants.

He was going to sign the agreement until he was criticised on fox news and then he decided to act like a spoilt kid and throw his toys out of the pram.

You said "at least he said it's his shutdown", but then said "he blames democrats".

It's purely because a president who doesn't read presidential briefings and only gets his information from fox was criticised by usually fawning hosts that he's willing to do this over Christmas.

He's deluding himself if he thinks anyone will "blame the Democrats" when it comes to the history books... All anyone ever remembers is "who was president when..." and thus, a government shut-down will be remembered as being his own incompetence as a leader.

No he isn't. He claimed the new trade agreement would account for it, but trade agreements by their very nature are distributed into the hands of private citizens (who actually have the businesses involved in trading products). why do you take everything he says at face value and without questioning?

More tantrums.

Trump cares about nothing but building a lasting monument to himself. He is a narcissist in the winter of his life and he wants to leave something that he believes will last and he doesn't care who he steps on to do it.

A wall won't stop illegal immigration and considering that the wall is just a vanity project which is using his base's extreme elements and their inherent racism towards mexicans to fuel it. It's an expensive waste of money to fuel Trump's ego and it saddens me that so many republicans are willing to lick his arse over it when there should be a bypartisan rage over his actions. He is ****ing over republican and democratic workers alike and the lack of condemnation from the republicans is grotesque.

Yes he wants a deal

a National Emergency funding. (he says many sources for that)

Then all those workers can get back to their jobs

Do you think it's ok if a leader of a democracy suddenly calls for emergency powers because he doesn't get his own way after being told off by Anne coulter and sean hannity?

People wonder how the germans fell for Hitler, and here we have good dudes like you, saying nothing when he floats things like this. I'm not comparing trump to hitler before anyone starts crying.
