The major first step for funding Trump's border wall was completed yesterday as the House passed a bill providing the funding levels that the president requested. The ball will now be in the Senate's court, so to speak, and Schumer has been adamant about not providing the amount that Trump is requesting. If we're being realistic, this is a largely symbolic victory as the Democrats are almost certain to stymie Trump on border wall funding every step of the way.
It now becomes a high stakes game of chicken. Who will blink first....Trump or Senate Democrats and is a government shutdown now inevitable? I tend to think so, but hope springs eternal. I don't know if I believe that but it sure sounds good! :)
