After two years of total GOP control – no wall for Trump, so he creates a national crisis. So typical.

He puts the nations security at risk, all because he cannot get his way. He has the temperament of an infant.
What a sad little man he is, even willing to punish hard working federal workers and destroy their families by throwing them to the wolves. All over his huge ego. He does the same to all workers, just look at his history – Trump hates the working class.
What an ego.
Forcing people to work without pay is akin to slavery.

Business contracts would be at stake and of grave loss.
Time to get after the House and Senate Republicans to take down the threats that tRump is making. :negative:

Why did his own party deny him his wall? There is no reasonable explanation, unless… unles… The Republicans recognize the futility and stupidity of the wall. We know a handful of them do because they spoke out about it over the past two years.

He’s a spoiled rotten little boy in a man’s body. All that matters to him is getting what he personally wants, no matter how many innocent people have to suffer because of it.

The truth is, there’s no such thing as being “anti-Fascist.” Either you are a decent human being with a conscience, or you are a fascist.

Trump is just playing to his immigrant hating, Democrat hating base while the Democrats are just racist hypocrites virtue signaling for votes. Regardless of who blinks first immigration and the exploitation of immigrants will continue because the 1% wants it.
Trump’s gamble is that the perception will be that Nancy and Chuck think that they can do what McConnell and his boys did to Obama, but the Republicans just prevented Obama from screwing us, Chuck and Nancy are screwing us out of spite. He will probably be right. Republicans who hate Democrats are 25% of the electorate, Democrats and former Democrats who hate the corruptocrats are another 15%. The corruptocrats are about 15%. Trump is gambling that his 3 aces can beat anything Nancy and Chuck have.

Guess we could call it “Haterians Wall” An attempt to isolate barbarians from the north.

of Trump’s presidency and did nothing on wall funding. The only reason I can think of is, Republicans don’t know how to govern.

from legislatures and a political opposition, the courts, international pressure, etc.
A “national emergency” declared solely because the legislature won’t do what he wants fits this precisely.

National issues (slavery/racism, income inequality, pandemics and pathetic health care, weak unions) are not solved with more states' rights. Global problems (climate change, migration, trade, war, pandemics) are not solved with more nationalism.
