    They are in no position to make demands.
    The only position they can take is one of cooperation with the other parties.

    Trump holding 800,000 federal employees hostage until he gets what he wants is not something we "cooperate" with.

    He's not offering the House anything other than stopping the shutdown that he started just to extort money.

    He is a terrorist. Boasting about how much suffering he is willing to cause if he doesn't get what he wants. And he wants money he promised that taxpayers would not have to pay.

    When you pay a ransom demand to a kidnapper that is not "cooperating".

    You are speaking nonsense as they are all responsible for the shutdown. Not just the President.

    Trump is a terrorist.

    Even many who voted for him now see this. They didn't vote for him to screw them. Now they see him promising to keep raping them for an indefinite period of time if he doesn't get the money that he promised them they would never have to pay.

    Democrats in the House and the Senate have voted to reopen the government.

    Trump is the one keeping it closed until he gets money from the taxpayers that he promised we would never have to pay.

    McConnell has enough votes in the Senate to reopen the government. But he won't put the legislation to a vote because he won't hand over something Trump has promised to veto.

    Trump is the one keeping the government closed until Democrats give him what he wants. He's not offering Democrats anything, and he promised America he wouldn't ask for this money.

    You are shamelessly defending an evil man who doesn't care how many people he hurts to get the money that he promised he would never ask for.

    And you are pro-terrorist.

    Pro-extortion to get whatever someone wants, no matter how much pain it causes, no matter that they have no right to it.

    The President puts on the table what he wants and they name what they want in order for him to get what he wants.
    Extortion: the practice of obtaining something {money for the wall}, especially money, through force or threats {or the government stays shutdown}.

    100%.

    Irrelevant. They do not get to unanimously decide what happens.

    The Dems are too.
    As I keep saying - they all have their responsibility here.

    Which is a sensible position to take.
    So start cooperating on something that will be signed.

    Wrong they all are by not cooperating.

    It is not his job to offer them anything other than what he wants.
    It is their job to offer what they want and then for the sides to cooperate.
    Nancy saying no any money for the barrier/wall is them not cooperating to get anything they may want.
    But for the House Republicans, they are all responsible here.

    Spare me your uneducated opinion. They are all responsible for not cooperating.

    So you think the president is king and congress is there to only serve the president, got it. Unless of course it is a dem president and then you are ok with congress not giving the president what he wants.
