Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) recently spoke to MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” and announced that Democrats intend to stand strong on the government shutdown. Schumer believes that the Republicans will pressure President Trump to change his mind or even go around him.
Schumer stated, “I think Trump thought that we Democrats would crack. We’ve been united. You saw today that even those moderate Democrats who were invited to the White House, justifiably, correctly, said no. Because they don’t want to just be window dressing. We’ve seen Trump stomp out of meetings because he’s not getting what he wants, and the public is so strongly on our side that our view is that Republicans are soon going to be putting enough pressure on Trump to either go around him or force him to change. We have to stay strong. So far, so good.”
With this being one of the longest government shutdowns in history, do you think the Republicans will fail in securing funding for the U.S.- Mexico border wall? Or should President Trump abandon hope and reopen the government?
