    Why did Trump stop the compromise talks?

    The Senate GOP were working on a compromise plan and it appeared to be gaining steam and Trump rejected the approach. Why? If he wanted the Dems to look like the intransigent ones, then that was absolutely the last thing he should have done.

    Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter were about to tell his base to abandon him.

    I am not talking about before the shut down. I am talking about yesterday.

    President Donald Trump has rejected a plan proposed by a bloc of Senate Republicans who had hoped to break an impasse over the government shutdown, leaving Congress and the White House with little obvious way out of the extended battle over Trump's border wall.

    If the talks don’t include at least a 5b allocation for his wall, he isn’t budging.

    This is about his ego and his promises...and if he gives in, he loses on both

    I am afraid the democrats have ran into a proverbial wall.....

    What I heard was they were thinking funding for the wall for path for citizenship for some of the DACA kids. There is over 80% support for giving DACA kids a path to citizenship. If even that was too much of a bargaining chip for Trump then I think he has completely given up on the optics that it is the Dems who refuse to compromise.

    The fact that he no longer controls all levers of government has yet to penetrate Trumps skull.


    Trump makes Republicans choose between him or their principles. The loyalty tests never ever end, and the choice shouldn’t even be difficult.

    Democrats are running a coordinated message about ports of entry to make the wall a loser talking point. The one hitting a wall is Trump. Who once said to go through them

    He barely controls what happens a 100 yards from the Oval, he never controlled "all levers of the government".

    So...what WAS the compromise plan? The article you link doesn't give any info about it. They just say that Trump refused it and everyone is disappointed.

    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.

    It won't just be Democrats but the GOP who are working to open the government as well. As this continues and Federal employees become more vocal (it's already starting), the optics will look worse for Trump if he chooses to be obstinate.
