‘Reality Check Moment’: Trump Will Be Forced to Compromise White House Official Admits

Everyone except the president of the United States seems to realize the only way the shutdown will end is with a compromise on his part.

A Wall Street Journal report on Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to hold the State of the Union until the shutdown is over quoted a White House official admitting President Donald Trump will be forced to compromise.

“There’s going to have to be a reality check moment that what he signs might not be what he’s been saying he needs,” a White House official said. “I don’t see how this can stretch much longer without becoming disastrous for everyone.”

Democrats have eagerly offered additional money for border security, despite the president not spending the money he was given last year. But Trump has refused to accept the deal because it doesn’t’ fund his wall.

A majority of Americans blame Trump for the shutdown and a majority of Americans also don’t want his wall. Instead, most support sensible border security as well as comprehensive immigration reform.
