Trying to blackmail & extort Congress is the action of a weak leader. We cannot afford to allow this type negotiation to continue. End the shutdown. Ban government shutdowns. Senate must man up and do your jobs. Vote on bills. Override any veto of Trump’s, if needed. Manage the government’s business as you are required; as you were elected to do. You have the checks & Balances to stop the executive branch’s dictatorship of Congress. That’s not how our government works. One man does not rule. No man is above the law. And oligarchs do not rule.
