    He won't shut the government down again.

    It would be very costly this time, there's already a bunch of unions that say they're going to go out on strike if it happens. Airline attendants, for one thing.

    If he did it again it really would shut the country down.

    I think he'll just stick a big middle finger in congress's eye and take the money from somewhere else.

    Shut it down. You can't draw a red line and then ignore it.

    Lawmakers involved in the negotiations to prevent a second government shutdown say they are aiming to reach an agreement on Monday night. Democrats have proposed a cap on the number of ICE detention beds [...]. Mitch McConnell accused House Democrats of bending to the "radical fringe" and dropping a "poison pill" into the negotiations. “This is a poison pill that no administration, not this one, not the previous one, should ever accept. Imagine the absurdity of this: House Democrats want to set a limit on how many criminal aliens our government can detain.”

    FIRE and replace the bad Republicans in their primaries, but NEVER EVER vote for a Democrat.

    Tucker asked, why shouldn't there be a number of Americans we can detain?

    This Cap on ICE detentions is a non starter!
    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    - Ronald Reagan

    Yes. For one, the next time Trump says he will do something, they will take it as gospel. And two, DC would be scared to death over a man who says what he means and means what he says.
