The government shutdown looks like it will hinge on Trump's border wall

Whether the federal government shuts down Friday could hinge on whether Congress includes funding for President Donald Trump's proposed border wall in legislation to keep the government funded.

Trump and administration officials have spent recent days talking up the possibility of including funding for a wall, which could set up a showdown with Democrats and even members of his party as the clock ticks toward a shutdown.

Asked by The Associated Press on Friday whether he would sign a bill that did not include funding for the wall, Trump was noncommittal.

"I don't know yet," Trump said. "People want the border wall. My base definitely wants the border wall. My base really wants it - you've been to many of the rallies. OK, the thing they want more than anything is the wall."

I am convinced this clown is working for Putin.

His first 100 days have been spent using every power of office he has to dismantle and disrupt the funtion of the government our taxes pay for.

1. I am confidant this will backfire.

He promised the wall, he can't deliver. Even if he spends the next 6 months blaming Democrats, he will not benefit from this. Stupid, stupid man.

6. He is pandering

To his whackjob base.

He had no record to run against last year.

He sure has one now.

2. Our girl scout troop

Has group campsite reservations in Great Smoky Mountain national park for Friday and Saturday night. The weather forecast looks great so far. Man I hope they don't have to miss it.

His base has the worldview of a 10 year old.

"My Dad can beat up your Dad."

4. I hope we have a shutdown then. The wall is a senseless waste of money.

Trump should be pursuing what the broader American public wants instead of what his nutty base wants. I seriously doubt most Americans want that dumbass wall.

15. Yeah, Trump proves every day that he is stubborn idiot.

It would be a miracle if he ever changed.

13. Even if the funding was approved, and I doubt it will be,

the money would supposedly pay for 62 miles of wall, or fence.
This wall or fence idea is going nowhere. Too many domain problems, too much
backlash from environmentalists, no money. The public is against this
stupid idea. More Mexican folks are leaving the US than entering at this point.
I live quite close to Mexico and in days past I would see illegals all the time.
10 or 12 guys sitting next to the road in plastic handcuffs. They came through
my land, men, women and children. I have not seen that in several years.
