Thursday on MSNBC, former Republican adviser Rick Tyler said Democrats have no reason to concede to President Donald Trump on the government shutdown.
He argued they woukd not sign a continuing resolution that includes funding for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.
Tyler said, “Think of the weakness of Trump’s position. The Democrats’ literal position is ‘we will sign a CR when Mexico pays for the wall’ like that is literally their starting point.”
He continued, “The Democrats have no reason to build a wall.”
He added, “Nobody’s on the side of the wall. The Republican party is, but two-thirds of the country, there’s no political will behind this.”
