Moving on from Tariff Man to Shutdown Man

This is not necessarily a sign of bravery on Trump's part. He knows his hardcore followers will
cheer for any stunt he pulls, so what has he got to lose? It is, however, a sign of ignorance.

WHETHER OR NOT Congress and the president reach a budget deal, it is singular that President Donald Trump expressed his willingness to accept responsibility for shutting down the government if he does not get $5 billion to fund his scheme to build a wall along the Mexican border. On those past, very rare occasions when the business of government was halted by political gridlock, no one wanted to take credit and everyone was quick to shift blame.

This is not necessarily a sign of bravery on Trump's part. He knows his hardcore followers will cheer for any stunt he pulls, so what has he got to lose? It is, however, a sign of ignorance. Shutdowns are a costly failure that hurt the economy and disrupt vital public services. Politically, they are usually damaging for whomever gets pinned with blame.

Nevertheless, in a bizarre, televised Oval Office meeting with the House and Senate Democratic leaders, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, Trump became exasperated when they were unwilling to agree to fund his wall. Instead, right in front of the TV cameras, they pointed out the fallacies upon which his border delusions are built.

“I will take the mantle. I will be the one to shut it down,” Trump finally declared. That is a mantle the Democrats would be very happy to see him wear.
