The bill, which has now been passed by the Senate and signed by The President, procurs funding for many government agencies through February 15th. The bill will give back pay to the nearly 800,000 government workers who have missed a paycheck.
The media :
Trump is the worst because he won't cave, people are literally dying because of him!
Also media :
Trump caved, he is worst!
He's agreed to open it for what, 20 days? Just so federal workers can be paid? Very caved, much wow.
Pelosi accepted her paycheck while other government workers suffered. Congress members should not be allowed to have a paycheck since they can't come to an agreement.
Personally, I didnt think Pelosi would cave first. It really wasn't a battle of whose most stubborn, but who lacks the most empathy. I believe that Trump just has human empathy whereas Nancy Pelosi isnt capable of it. He could shut down the government for a year and she wouldnt give a shit so long as moneys still going in her pocket. She could care less about government workers. So yeah, unfortunately Trump simply picked an unwinnable battle there.
More shameless leftwing bias. 4 Left wing sources, with Vox as the first? I guess if these degenerates think they're resisting evil, standards of decency like neutrality in authoring a headline dont matter.
Caved on what? If there's no wall funding by the 15th then he's going to declare a national emergency to get the wall built. Sometimes one needs to make small, tempoeary concessions in order to get their true goal.
What a biased headline, so much for neutrality on this app. Leftist trash have no standards.
as I legitimately had to explain to some other folks this one individual Mark Twain who definitely is not doing that author any justice with the mental capacity of a child people who think he caved they're not looking at it from a rational point of view people need their paychecks he understands that but at the same time it appears that neo cons and Democrats aren't quite understanding he's got an ace up his sleeve in fact he's got a few of them to the point of negotiating did you give and take he's doing everything he can to get this done bipartisan if it doesn't happen within 3 weeks I can pretty much guarantee one of three things is going to happen, it will shut back down b, he's going to pull the ace out of his sleeve or c, Heck he might pay for it himself..honestly I'm enjoying watching pundits and idiots and morons claim they've won some victory, he's giving them a little bit of rope the man didn't get where he is by caving in he has had the Democrats crawling the walls for a while over this, now he give them a little something it's almost like the carrot and the stick he gives him a little something maybe he saw something in the 3-week dearly like most people don't read into things like they should they just react.
he did not cave he wanted the federal workers to get paid, this is not a definite. shut down will come back.
Not so much a cave, more like sacrificing a knight to allow the queen a more advantageous position on the 4D chess board. Kamikazi gamesmanship but the stakes are high. Go big or go home.
I don't think he caved. now he gets to pay the federal employees, and then club Democrats over the head at the state of the union.
Guess he cared more about the federal workers than the Democrats eating caviar in their ivory towers.
These auto-generated headlines are cancer.
Federal workers get paid and the Don gets to give his SOTU address to present his case to the American people while calling out the HypoCrats to thier faces in the Congress on live TV.. If 'do nothing' Pelosi allows the goverment to close again in 3 weeks, the blame will be squarely on her and her merry band of HypoCrats
Trump caved, and my bet is after Hannity and Lara call him out he won't sign the deal like he did the last two times.
well then I guess fuck the wall
I thought Mexico would pay for it.
Caved like a Thai soccer team. =P
If he didn’t cave he certainly blinked.
There was no debate, the Dems refused to talk about it!
