I can't understand how this crisis came into being so quick. The past two years, Republicans have had full control of every branch of government and didn't seem to think legislation was so important. Trump could have also taken the deal for DACA and got the full funding for his wall. Some crisis.
Seems to me Trump is happy the government is shut down. Perhaps his biggest fear is the Meuller investigation. Why is he Stalin. Seems to me Trump was outsmarted by moose and squirrel.
