As we reported earlier, Democrats gave in to Trump’s demands and NO DEAL was made on DACA. The Democrats tried to grandstand, but their efforts came up short.
According to The Hill, the Democrats got NOTHING in return for this shutdown, and we couldn’t be more pleased:
The three-week funding bill still needs to pass on a final up-or-down vote, but that is a formality now that the Senate has voted to end dilatory debate. The House is expected to approve the bill quickly.
The deal falls short of the Democrats’ initial demand that President Trump and GOP leaders agree to the rough outlines of a deal to replace the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and protect hundreds of thousands of “Dreamers” facing deportation.
Trump and GOP leaders refused to negotiate on immigration while the government remained closed.

That’s what I call the ART OF THE DEAL, folks
Twitter mercilessly mocked Democrats after this went down:
Democrats: Give us executive amnesty or we’ll shut down the government!
Republicans: No. Fund the government.
Democrats: Okay fine.
Well done, Chuck.

Democrats have managed to accede to Republican demands, demoralize their energized base, give a disengaged president a win, and look like they held a meaningless three day government shutdown — all at once.

Wait, how can the Democrats “agree” to end their shutdown? The Democrats have been telling us Trump & the Republicans shut the govt down, not them. Shows you just how disingenuous the Democrats have been.

Wow. Dems miscalculated big league here.

Trump again does the impossible… Beats the Democrats in a shutdown.
Another reminder that #NeverTrump can all go f*** themselves.

Holding the budget hostage over DACA is not a battle you’re going to win. Thanks for exposing that you choose illegal aliens over Americans.
This legal American votes.#MondayMotivation
