Oh dear. U.S. President Donald J Trump just posted a graphic on his Instagram account that will likely make his political opposition go bananas. Epic:
From all appearances President Trump is not backing down from his demand for border security that includes a border wall physical barrier. And while Democrats thought they had him painted into a zero-sum corner, well, there’s every indication the White House is prepared to let the partial government shutdown go on for months if needed.
Position - Pressure - Nancy - Pelosi
This position now puts all the pressure on Nancy Pelosi.
It looks like President Trump tasked Chairman Kevin Hassett, of the White House Council of Economic Advisors (CEA), to run the numbers on how the prolonged government shut-down might have an impact on the economy.
