Donald J. Trump did Not get his way….
He may have adopted the Grand ole party from the establishment Republican lawmakers for a while….
But even that went south on him….
The November Midterm elections changed everything….
A lot of us knew that….
It would appear that Trump has just realized that also….
All the ranting about the border….
Even a partial shutdown of part of the US government has NOT given him the $5 billion plus he said he’d get from the Mexican Government and then the US Taxpayers….
His steel/concrete wall hasn’t been given a ok to be built with American taxpayer money either….
Donald Trump will now try to sell mostly his base supporters that his loss is really a win?
For those who were selling the notion that Donald Trump would change the way the American Government works?
Ya got it wrong…..
In the end?
Trump could end up resorting to stealing money from other government programs to try to get his way….
In pursuit of a wall, President Trump ran into one. A single-minded drive to force Congress to finance his signature campaign promise has left Mr. Trump right back where he started, this time seeking a way to climb over the political barrier in his way after trying to charge through it did not work.
As he inched closer to reluctantly accepting a bipartisan spending compromise without the money he demanded for his border wall, Mr. Trump offered no acknowledgment on Wednesday that his pressure tactics had failed even as aides sought to minimize the damage by tamping down criticism on the right.
One call was made to Lou Dobbs, a favorite of Mr. Trump’s whose Fox Business Network show he often tries to catch live. Another was placed to Sean Hannity, the Fox host who regularly talks with the president. The message: Mr. Trump deserved support because he still forced concessions that he would never have gotten without a five-week partial government shutdown.
Even so, it was arguably the most punishing defeat Mr. Trump has experienced as president, and it left the White House scrounging for other ways to pay for a wall on the southwestern border and rethinking its approach to a Congress now partly controlled by Democrats. Mr. Trump’s inability to reach a satisfying deal despite the negotiating experience he regularly touted on the campaign trail suggested that any aspirations of collaboration across party lines may be even more elusive than he had imagined…..
He may not like it….
But Trump is gonna HAVE TO find a way to work WITH Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi….
His base support will NOT be enough….
Especially with his parties lawmakers looking over their shoulders at the large amount of Republican loses in the House….
