Stunned Democrats emerged from the White House meeting declaring that Mr. Trump had thrown a “temper tantrum.” The president’s allies accused Democrats of refusing to negotiate. Then he tweeted that the meeting was “a total waste of time.” https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1083099784012091396?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1083099784012091396&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.nytimes.com%2F2019%2F01%2F09%2Fus%2Fpolitics%2Fgovernment-shutdown-trump-senate.html
God damn he's like people who don't know how to play Monopoly and won't make a deal if they have to negotiate
Wow what a manchild
Uh, excuse me, he INVENTED deals, okay? https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/71UgBNx7WmL.jpg
Literally leaving a meeting because the opposing party won't just bow to your whims? This guy is the worst negotiator ever.

https://youtu.be/RfLl2GNY2Mg Also the response by Pelosi and Schumer
This is a negotiating tactic. Judging whether it is a good one or a bad one is a paradigm that will likely reveal your political leaning.
Guess the shutdown will be lasting a while longer then. At least the more moderate republicans were annoyed by his display. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_5KUxx2wZX4
Just give up and resign, you manchild. Negotiation and compromise are clearly too hard and frustrating for you.
When will this spoiled child be put into a timeout already jesus tap dancing christ
It's almost like electing to the office of President a man who has been pampered, spoiled, and never challenged (except by the law -- which was his cue to pay fines as the cost of doing business and up his skill at hiding his activities from the law) for his entire lifetime results in a tantrum-prone tyrant who refuses to recognize the co-equal authority of the legislative branch unless they're complying with him. His negotiating tactic is also to play hardball and make the other side come offering concessions to deal. Problem is, he could fire any worker that complained, he cannot fire voters to silence opposition.
The president’s allies accused Democrats of refusing to negotiate. Oh that's fucking rich.
Not much of a negotiation if the only outcomes are either Trump to get his dumbass picket fence or the shutdown drags on. Sounds more like coercion.
Also Pence and Co. response: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dx0iceury9Y Fucking disgusting that they accuse Pelosi and Schumer of mischaracterizing the meeting, while at the same time they simply replace the word "border wall" with "border security" when talking about what Pelosi said no to...
So much for the "high energy" "master negotiator" Trump. When will this farce end.
2020, or maybe sooner. Or maybe 2024.
If he wins a second term he is no doubt getting assassinated.
That's the only way to win the game though.
Its a negotiating gambit when you have cards in the table or when you're making a first impression. Trump has neither, he has no cards because he owned to all the pain, suffering and finanical issues that will arise from this shutdown. He also has no first impression, this was expected of him and he's on many occasions tried to pull this and then turned around given into deals. Even from a non-biased view, this move was the worst he could have possibly done.
Please please dems don't fucking fold like you always do.
When Pence is looking sideways he looks like Will Farrel.
I think if Trump actually stormed out all of DC would've felt it.
Dems folding on this would be a disaster tbh Them refusing to deal with him bullshit is seriously helping them in a huge way. The worst he makes this the better off they are.
Yeah, the democrats are in a pretty strong position right now. Not trying to diminish the fact that millions of Americans have their livelihoods at risk, but this shutdown is entirely on Trump's hands no matter how much he tries to shift the blame. The longer this shutdown goes on for, the more people will be effected. The more people effected, the more people will be furious with Trump. Seems like the more moderate Republicans will start to break as well since they don't seem thrilled with what's going on.
They haven't sent any signal that they're considering folding. I think they're well-aware they're in the better position right now. Putting out funding bills and making Trump deny them to get the part he wants makes it very apparent the shutdown is on Trump's head.

It would set the precedent that shutting down the government is an acceptable tactic to achieve policy goals. which would mean government shutdowns becoming more common, which imo is inarguably a bad thing.
The great negotiator
That cat already left the bag in the 90s w/ gingrich's bs.
