Quote:I think your wording is a bit off. Trump did not surrender to Nancy Pelosi. He granted a 3 week reprieve so the federal workers can be paid and to try to get everyone back to the table to negotiate a deal. He said if a deal is not reached in 3 weeks that he would either shut down the government again or declare an emergency and go around congress for the wall. I am glad the workers can get paid but this is not over by any means. I like a few things he has done such as making all those kids apply for asylum in their own country and not in the US and making the asylum seekers wait in Mexico while their cases are processed. Maybe Trump will start stepping up deportations if he gets no additional walls. We already have 650 miles of walls and barriers. Trump can do alot of harm to immigrants even without a wall. His speech today was outstanding and he did a great job explaining why many illegal immigrants are nothing but criminals.
***If he shuts down the government a second time he can kiss re-election good bye. If he tries to declare an emergency it will be taken to the courts and more than likely not happen. If it could happen he would have done it already. He kind of backed himself into a corner here...at least it seems that way.
