The standoff over US President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall has escalated after Trump went on prime-time TV to insist that Congress fund the barrier. The Democrats' Congressional leaders, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, accused Trump of manufacturing a crisis and stoking fear to divert attention from the turmoil in his administration. Of course, the standoff means the partial government shutdown goes on. Those affected are sharing their experiences on social media, using the hashtag #ShutdownStories.

The "adjustments" that people will have to make are adjusting to going hungry so their kids can eat, and living in their cars.
Trump yells at his staff if they are a few minutes late with his KFC but workers will just have to make "adjustments" for a while?
He's simply running the country like he did his casinos and building sites whenever it was inconvenient to pay his workers and contractors.
Dark Truth
It’s the Dems refusal to secure the border. There’s only 1 reason they won’t. They WANT illegals to make it in and vote illegally. Or for them to come in, get amnesty, and vote.

Then the Dems will keep them dependent on entitlement programs and have them vote democrat.
