Trump to Make Shutdown Announcement

Donald Trump will shortly appear in the Rose Garden to make an announcement about the shutdown. The deal he's hammering out with Congressional leaders will reportedly include funding for a short-term reopening of the government through mid-February, no funding for Trump's border wall, and a provision to get back pay to federal workers.

Who knows what Trump will actually say when he finally walks out to the podium, but it looks like instead of Trump getting his wall, Nancy Pelosi's going to get a cave.


Speaking of Pelosi, the Speaker continues to be an absolute badass.
