Trump: Ending shutdown was ‘in no way a concession’
By Tal Axelrod - 01/25/19 08:05 PM EST

President Trump on Friday sought to defend his decision earlier that day to end the ongoing partial government shutdown without getting funding for his long-desired border wall.

“I wish people would read or listen to my words on the Border Wall. This was in no way a concession," Trump tweeted. "It was taking care of millions of people who were getting badly hurt by the Shutdown with the understanding that in 21 days, if no deal is done, it’s off to the races!”

No government in the 6,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.

It was, in fact, a tremendous victory for America, the American people, and the United States of America.  Tremendous.

This was the day President Trump squashed the rat's destructive shutdown.  A shutdown that was eroding our national security and border defenses and had cost more lives than ending Net Nutrality .  One man put his reputation and political capital at risk so our border defenders could do their jobs without worrying about their children's empty bellies.  Has an President loved this country more?

Even better maybe he'll organize a plan involving Republicans in congress and follow through with it after setting it motion instead of bouncing around like an arcade pinball...

Funny he had two years to get the wall ( which Mexico was supposed to pay for it ). He has to prove that he can make a great deal to get his wall through Congress. It is all on him.

2 years with near total GOP control of the government.

That is true, had he spent less time worrying about fake news and actaully sit down with the leaders of both houses he could have a wall.


Also, he shouldn't had listen to Ann Coulter. Ann Coulter doesn't give a s**t about the border issue. She cares about one thing and that is herself.

Actually, it was two years of near total Never-Trump GOP control of the government. 

Liking where it got us?

BS.  It was only a few NTs and the rest Trump could have won over had he tried.  It's a bit too early to try to rewrite history.

Horseshit. The GOP margin in the Senate was controlled by RINO's like McCain, Murkowski and Collins...who's votes on nearly every important issue handed control of legislation to the Dems. If you want to blame anyone for what WASN'T done in that 2 years, put 100% of it on the RINO/NT alliance that stopped what the President was working to achieve. 

You have to love GOP'rs who've slammed and fought against the President...working with Dems and RINO's...blaming the President, or even McConnell, for not getting a wall. The culprits in this failure ARE the NT/RINO crowd...nobody else need share any of that blame.

You're the one rewriting history.  It only took a few in strategically positions to bring a halt to everything.  And, apparently, you're hell bent on  editing out Paul Ryan, John McCain, Jeff Flake, Lisa Murkowski, Rob Porter et al.  They were not going to be "won over" because they were consumed with hate that Donald Trump won.  They would have been more amenable to Hillary Clinton.

I won't let you rewrite this.  For the last two years the GOP Congressional caucuses have been under diehard Never-Trump control  They brought us --- willfully ---- to this point
