    Tell you what...give me the details of this "compromise" and I'm sure I can accurately guess exactly why Trump told them to take a hike.

    WASHINGTON — Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham told reporters that President Donald Trump is open to a compromise with Democrats that includes $5 billion for border security “in areas that make sense” in exchange for legislative changes to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program and immigrants with temporary protected status, or TPS.
    I guess he was not as open minded as Graham had hoped.

    It is not very clear what the compromise was, but buried in the story was something like "the president rejected their idea to allow congressional committees to sort out his border wall request while the government reopened." Security but not the wall.

    I am taking that to mean Senate Republicans were about to cave and open up government without wall funding, and that would politically undermine Trump's temper tantrum government shutdown going on 20 days and getting us ever close to breaking the record.

    With all the conversation yesterday on Democrats potentially looking to exchange DACA for the wall the pressure to make a deal is on the incline.

    But that is not what Trump wants, and odds are the shutdown will continue...

    The fact he waited until just after Republicans lost control of the House to make this stand suggests this is theatrics for his base rather than being truly desperate for a wall.

    As it stands though, whichever side is perceived as giving in over this shutdown will find they have significantly less weight in negotiations over the next ~18 months. Some Republicans are starting to realize the wall probably isn't going to happen but they don't really have to go down with the ship.....

    Because the two democrats are not going to budge and, frankly their arguments are just a joke. I don’t see any point in conversation with those two fools because obviously they believe in the non citizens because they change our country. Compromise conversation are not going anywhere. They want to open the government before they have the conversation but yet if they do it then it’s the same thing as now. Oh president is being a child and whatever. Apparently Pelosi and Schumer knows what is good while they have security at home and and the United States Capitol is heavy secured
