From President Trump’s Inauguration on January 20, 2017 through the end of the 115th Congress earlier this month…if the Republicans really wanted a wall we would have one…they would have had every opportunity to get one. But they just know that outside of their base it isn’t popular enough to support back home.

But the question remains…why are they humoring the president right now on this? Do they think the shutdown will damage the Democrats and weaken their support nationally? Do they think they can take the wind out of the sails of the freshman Dems in Congress? Do they think they will weaken Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s influence in the Senate?

Of do they think maybe they can finally get the president to listen to the congressional leadership if they let him sink on this?
