This whole wall fight has been a disaster for Trump. We were first told by prominent Republicans that they had the votes for the wall and that never happened. Trump failed to get people on board.
Then he said he was proud to shut down the government, he then evolved and we were expected to forget he said that.
Meeting after meeting with the Dems failed fo produce a result and now Trump was left with no choice but to capitulate.
Spin it how you want but its a huge climbdown for Trump and has eroded his power as President. Its eroded in the sense that he was the first to blink.
For a man allegedly to be the best negotiator in the world we saw zero evidence of this in the past several weeks.
Of course his supporters will maintain the fiction that this is somehow part of a bigger strategy but its not.
When Trump does not shut the government down in 3 weeks all the usual suspects here will pivot and explain why even though they said he would they never actually meant that.
