Today’s Trump doubling down on a Government shutdown isn’t about anything except a President that is working to please his conservative base….
It isn’t about the wall money….
It isn’t about anything else….
Now that the American voters have given Democrats a voice in the upcoming Congress?
Either he keeps giving his party leader Donald Trump what he wants and pleases the hardline conservative knuckleheads?…..(Remember Donald Trump ran AGAINST his own party establishment to get the nomination…He has been able to use the base voters to keep his party people in line with fear, even when thy KNEW what he wanted was wrong…They are NOT his friends and if it came down to it?…Will they push for him to quit?)
He goes back to compromise with the Democrats and gets things moving ahead….
Make no mistake?
Mitch McDonnell IS end for some rough times….
If Trump is pushed into bargaining with Democrats?
He will have to find a scapegoat to please the conservative’s….
That will be the Democrat’s….
Another reason this is a historic week — and what President Trump should really worry about — is that lots of different Republicans have been turning on him over different topics.
Why it matters: A former Trump aide who asked to be described as “a Trump ally” told Axios that the sudden wave of criticism from the Hill over Syria and Mattis should scare the president because he would desperately need these lawmakers’ support during a possible impeachment battle.
