Trump won't sign the bill unless it included funding for the wall so the government gets shut down.
He shows a willingness to negotiate while Dem leadership is off partying in Puerto Rico.
He shows he is willing to sacrifice by staying at the White House during the holidays while laid off workers were missing paychecks.
He showed he would sweeten the pot by offering concessions to DACA and extensions for dreamers.
He exposed Democrats as soft or worse on border security.
He exposed Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff for taking a junket on taxpayers dollars while they should have been negotiating and laid off workers were missing paychecks.
He exposed the Dems as having no reasonable position on the border at best and at worst being aligned with drug cartels, criminals, gangs and human rraffickers.
Lastly he showed he would sacrifice his own ego to reopen the government so laid of people could get paid again.
NOW HERE IS THE BEAUTY OF THE PLAN.....
If Dems negotiate and give him the money for the wall their victory is suddenly a loss.
If Dems don't negotiate and don't give him the money for the wall them Trump won shut the government down again. He will declare the national emergency at the border.
By doing so he gets his money for the wall and the DEMS GET NOTHING, NO DACA, NO DREAMER EXTENSIONS, NO AID PACKAGE, ZIP, NADA!
BUT YOU SAY, some liberal wacko 9th circuit judge will block Trump's emergency declaration?
Oh good THEN IT WILL GO BEFORE THE SUPREME COURT AND WHERE IS RBG?
WINNING IS AWESOME!
