Trump plan to end shutdown panned by opponents, right


Trump portrayed his offer as a way to end a partial government shutdown now into its fifth week, the longest in modern history. Opinion polls this month have consistently shown that Americans blame Trump and Republican lawmakers more than Democrats for the shutdown. In return, Trump again requested US$5.7 billion for a “strategic deployment of physical barriers” at the US-Mexico border. Ann Coulter, an influential conservative commentator, tweeted that “100 miles of border wall in exchange for amnestying millions of illegals. So if we grant citizenship to a BILLION foreigners, maybe we can finally get a full border wall.”
