But we all need to understand why this is happening.
STEP 1: Trump promised to build a wall.
I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I’ll build them very inexpensively, I will build a great, great wall on our southern border. And I will have Mexico pay for that wall.
Mark my words.
STEP 2: He didn’t really think much about actually how to get Congress to do it.
STEP 3: The GOP lost the mid-terms.
STEP 4: Trump realized he didn’t really think much about how to get Congress to build his wall. But whatevs.
STEP 6: Donald decided he’d just refuse to do his job or allow Congress to do their until he gets his way. And he bragged that he was going to do it.
