I can't decide if he's having a tantrum over the wall, or trying to take all eyes off Cohen and the meeting he didn't know about. No really - he didn't. He's telling the truth this time. Srsly.

He'll back down, just like he backed down to Junker and the EU.

Trump threats now have the credibility of toilet paper in a washing machine.

I'm not sure, as further posts indicate the walls are closing in. Trapped rats will do the damnedest things.

He'll scurry until there's nowhere to go, no matter how tight the space gets. Trump has shown time and again that he prefers to agree with whomever is in the room.

He was able to say "you're fired" because it was a TV show. Otherwise, he consistently stands by bad actors and incompetent underlings. Even when they betray him, he cuts them loose by proxy.

The man is afraid of protesters and avoids personal scrutiny wherever possible.

Well that and his statement about shutting down the government makes zero sense. The GOP hold both the House and the Senate.

Maybe he still does not know how goverment actually works???

Fine. Shut it down right before midterms. Sure that will work out well since Republicans hold all branches of government.

Singularity is right. Hell back down. His threats are pointless distractions

Well, when Obama could find 150 billion for Iran, and yet somehow the government can't find 20 billion for a wall...

Oh, sure; we COULD have taken it from the money for the obscenely wealthy. We just chose not to.
