Trump Caved So Hard People Are Searching What ‘Caving’ Means

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez blasts Trump shutdown amid flight delays at NYC and D.C. airports

President Trump will secure the USA border with Mexico "with or without Congress", White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said Sunday, as negotiations over Trump's long-sought border wall begin anew.

The president has said he could declare a national emergency to fund the border wall unilaterally if Congress doesn't provide the money.

Democrats in the House had demanded a reopening of the government before any negotiations with Trump and his Republican allies on border security. Mulvaney said they told Trump they couldn't split with Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, and work with the White House if the government remained closed.

Face The Nation host Margaret Brennan asked Mulvaney if the president was "really prepared" to shut down the government again in three weeks.

However, a source told FOX Business that employees are hoping to get paid by midweek next week.

Mulvaney added that's a "marked difference from where the Democrat leadership was, where they said they wouldn't talk to us about border security ever".

"I want to thank all of the incredible federal workers and their fantastic families who have shown such extraordinary devotion in the face of this recent hardship", he said.

Trump was further hurt by endless stories about the tribulations of the 800,000 federal workers going without pay and countless others missing needed government services, plus comments by high-ranking administration officials that made those officials seem unfeeling about the suffering.

Whereas Democrats say the president did, in fact, concede, some on the right said Trump caved to the Democrats. We never wanted that because we have barriers at the border where natural structures are as good as anything that we could build. "In a short while, I will sign a bill to open our government for three weeks, until February 15".

"Earlier, in a Rose Garden speech when he announced the short-term agreement, Trump raised the prospect of using "the powers afforded to me under the laws and Constitution of the United States" to get what he wants".

A Politico/Morning Consult poll conducted January 18-22 found that 49% of those polled blamed Trump for the shutdown while 35% blamed Democrats in Congress.

The president went on to reassert that many federal workers had backed him over the shutdown.

Sanders tweeted, "In 21 days President @realDonaldTrump is moving forward building the wall with or without the Democrats". Hours before Mr Trump ended the shutdown, airports on the East Coast buckled, delaying or halting flights because of a shortage of air traffic controllers, who called in sick rather than be forced to work without pay.

"After 36 days of spirited debate and dialogue, I have seen and heard from enough Democrats and Republicans that they are willing to put partisanship aside, I think", Trump said.

The Smithsonian Institution said museums in Washington and the National Zoo will reopen on Tuesday.

We were never bullish on the shutdown, so don't count us among the shocked and outraged that it has produced nothing more than an agreement to negotiate more. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had postponed Trump's State of the Union address, scheduled for Tuesday, over security concerns caused by the shutdown.
