When faced with a toddler having a tantrum, one has two choices. They can give the child what they want, knowing that this will stop the tantrum. The downside of this method is that the child learns that he or she will get what they want with a tantrum if the initial answer is no. Or, the parent will look the kid in the eye and make it clear that no means no. Taking a tantrum will not result in getting what they want.
Right now, in Washington D.C. we have a President who has been taking a tantrum for nearly three weeks. This tantrum has led to a government shutdown and will likely prevent federal workers from receiving their badly needed paychecks tomorrow.
At this point, I am so sick of the back and forth. Why not just give him the wall already? He has from my perspective, already proven to be an ineffective and clueless leader. Let him waste billions of American tax dollars (read: not Mexican tax dollars) on a border wall that will do not nothing to resolve the issues with our immigration system.
Then we will see what happens next fall, perhaps then those who blindly follow him will see the truth of the man they continue to support.
