    negotiating with Trump is like playing chess with a pigeon. The pigeon knocks over all the pieces, craps on the board, then struts around like it won the game.

    ​+Danielle Soileau because the majority of illegal immigrants are not coming over our southern border. Illegal entry by individuals from Mexico has fallen by more than 90% since 2000 (via forbes). Also "The report released Wednesday by the Center for Migration Studies of New York finds that from 2016-2017, people who overstayed their visas accounted for 62 percent of the newly undocumented, while 38 percent had crossed a border illegally."

    I am sooooo tired of trump and his unceasing conflict and lies. Impeach the bum. I'm sick of hearing that his impeachment would be detrimental to the country. More of trump is killing our country. Impeach the bum.

    Trump is officially insane. I need my money. Can't work for free for a mad man hell bent on helping Russia and destroy America in the process. Just so he can make money. He's greedy. Plain and simple.

    This President is funny you have to admit he hilarious. I'm sure landlords don't mind if they don't pay their rent. I'm telling my landlord this month sorry I can't pay my rent because trump said I don't have too

    Hey... if federal workers aren’t getting payed, who’s patrolling the boarder? Sorry to any Trump supporters, but this is what happens when you put a child in office and they don’t get their way.(Edit) I realize that some people are still patrolling, but even those loyal to trump are eventually going to quit because they are not being payed.

    +Ryley18 we are not saying Obama didn't make mistakes when he was in the oath office. But he did it an adult. Unlike this 2 years old. For anyone to shutdown the government to get their way is unfair to the people who have to survive. The landlords, bill collectors want their money. He doesn't understand how it works which he should cause he owns properties.

    Awesome response! Yet, I heard that Trump called federal agents back to work (for free) to ensure that the permits to offshore drilling in the Atlantic took place. Thankfully, the courts shut this process down. Talk about underhanded POS - if he was a private industry he would already be facing time.

    no matter how slooooollly you explain these things to Trump supporters, they keep repeating the same crap.

    +1 ToLiveThroughIt i agree that perspective changes are possible and probable however you hit the nail on the head as to why most people refuse to change. Support systems and community are essential tools of survival for many mammalian groups including humans. Without community and support groups many cannot survive. There are many systemic and underlying issues that were nurtured and fostered to create a purposed and fractured system. Giving way to my ultimate point: this is a purposed and planned col...

    +Envy Never Thinks Twice people can and are able to change perspective it's just a hard choice for some because their support group are a bunch of morons and they would basically have to start over from being strong enough to stand alone.

    If i am forced to work for the government for free, is that not effectively a 100% taxSo Trumps tax plan is now a 💯% tax on the middle class with huge tax breaks for the rich!?!?! Great job 👍 republicans you stand for nothing!

    Emmanuel Sanchez most government jobs of the type not being paid require a college degree. And I offered several reasons so your attempt to ignore the others doesn’t change the fact that leaving isn’t easy
