    Walking out is a basic negotiating tactic. I bet Trump is the sort of person who has done it dozens of times in business negotiations. It is best used when you can afford to walk away from a deal but the other side cannot afford to have you walk away. Even when you can't afford to walk away, you can still bluff that you are walking away, which is what Trump is doing.

    Poll after poll shows Trump is losing support for the wall and is getting blamed for the shutdown. As long this blame exists the Dems just keep on saying NO until his approval rating goes down the toilet.

    When the other side has just literally refused to negotiate even minimally in good faith, there's not much point to sitting and staring at each other.

    They weren't asked to negotiate, he said will you give me my money for the wall, exactly what about that is negotiating?
    Khaladon starts to turn the crystal knob, but stops with a frightened look on his face. He begins shaking uncontrollably and flies across the room, as though by some invisible force.

    **SPLAT!!** Khaladon careens off the far wall, slides down the smooth wood panelling and collapses into a quivering heap on the floor, with only his dignity bruised.

    If you watched anything besides cnn and jimmy kimmel and you'd know what was offered. There were several offers from Republicans. Absolutely none from democraps.

    You gotta figure that he's gone his whole life being surrounded by yes men, never being held accountable for anything. I imagine his reality is being turned upside down right now.

    Odd Dems passed the bills the GOP sent over from the senate before the new year, with zero changes. They passed in the Senate 100-0. Suddenly they are unacceptable, one was actually written by Mitch MCConnell, is he some great leader of the Democrats now?

    Odd dems voted for walls before but now they all of a suddenly consider them immoral and a waste of money.

    Trump should have accepted DACA protections back when Dems offered money for a wall. Now he's an impotent POTUS with zero political capital and the wolves are closing in. Stable genius my ass

    Yup no need. Elections have consequences. Again, Trump got his wall last year when he was strong he rejected it because it wasn’t absolutely 100% and didn’t want to budge on a bunch of kids getting citizenship. And now, he gets nothing.

    Art of the deal folks! 19 dimensional chess!

    Give me a break.
