    Of all the options, the easiest way out is for Trump to resign. Of course the other cronies need to resign, too (Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell). Then maybe we can have a functional government again.

  • Truthfully

    ENOUGH!
    Stop the trump republican enablers SHUTDOWN!
    How has the Great USA become a DICTATORSHIP?

    "It’s clear to both of us that Democrats don’t want to make a deal and will never support border wall/barriers."

    Except that Democrats DO support the border securities and DO support barriers (that are already in place) where it makes sense.

  • drathvedar

    The very fact that a person would have to ponder whether or not to declare an emergency says that it's not an emergency. How can anyone not realize that?

  • RohnertPark1

    Sure he doesn't. Just saving face after his GOP advisors told him what a stupid idea it was. What an ego maniac.

  • catmom

    Oh for goodness sakes!!! You either have an emergency or you don't. trump is using this as a means to get what he wants and that is no emergency. He is no longer fooling people. Most of us have figured trump out.

  • inonepeice

    Trump says he doesn't want to take the easy way out. Yeah sure... Taking the easy way out is filing for bankruptcy or settling for fraud out of court. And Trump has a history of it.

  • Lew Fournier

    If you have to ponder whether or not an emergency exists, it's not an emergency. What a clueless dope Spanky is.

  • William Rose

    Easiest = Get rid of Trump.

  • Linda

    "Build a wall" is an easy concept. Even for someone with as limited an intellect as trump. Now health care, infrastructure, real immigration reform, etc. is beyond trump's capacity to understand. The wall is all he's got.

  • owthathurts

    We're getting close to the time when Trump's only way out will be a night-time escape to Moscow.

  • kritikosman

    Who's gonna pay for the peaches!?

  • {askew}

    The easy way out is through the back door and wave to the crowd from the helicopter.
    The hard way out is the front door in handcuffs....but I enjoy a good perp walk

  • inonepeice

    Well at least Putin is happy.

  • inonepeice

    Bankruptcy is the easy way out and Trump has been down that path many times.

  • kcmookie

    Continue to negotiate with Congress? What have you offered? What concession have you made? Graham speaks of negotiating in good faith, when has Trump ever acted in good faith? You reach a consensus, and he simply changes his mind. How do you negotiate with someone like that?

  • snake

    If declaring an emergency was the "easy way out" Trump would have already done it. Obviously he is getting the distraction he needs from his treason.

  • mark2789

    The easier way out would be to accept fact and truth from those who know about how little the wall would help then call the whole thing off. But your sick little narcissistic ego wont allow that so you must destroy all you encounter in order to win. and you don't care what damage you do.

  • Tanya Henderson

    " so much other big problems" sigh.

  • rpresident

    If this is a "humanitarian crisis" as Trump now states...shouldn't we be sending water, food, and shelter to those affected? You don't build a wall after a hurricane, or build a wall to provide famine relief. Building the wall does not solve a "humanitarian crisis", so quit using that term.

  • arriba65

    Trump wants this to hurt. He wants the country to hurt so he can get what he wants.

  • kritikosman

    You (trump) quitting is an easier way out!

  • Cathy

    How can this be? Didn't Trump just say a few days ago that all the Republicans were unified in their support of the wall?

  • Pologize3

    Actually, it's not the easy way out. It will be challenged and sent to the supreme court. It will be very lengthy litigation.

  • Corey Mondello

    Calling a national emergency shouldn’t be easy for anyone. It shows the US prez has too much power!

  • Sarah Levine

    Not so fast to take "The easy way out” Trump said.

    Of course he doesn't want to take the easy way out, the longer the shutdown drags on the more likely he bumps the Mueller and FBI stories from the headlines. Trump does know how to control the news cycle.

  • chooch

    The easy way out would have been for him to sign the bipartisan bill a week or two ago. Now it is the Trump shutdown and he doesn't know how to save face and get out of his own box.

  • TheZeppelingFloyds

    I seriously think Trump was sent by Dems to destroy the GOP.

  • ryanwiwb

    Apparently someone in the White House Counsels office pointed out that there needs to be a real emergency before you declare an emergency.

  • David Howell

    Are we tired of winning let? Trump (the Country will be so tired of winning they will ask me to stop).

  • helios

    The only plus I see here is the fool saying "it's the easy way out" which translates to - it will NOT be easy at all.

  • Eric Janssen

    Although more familiarly, the "Easy way out" is suicide--
    Politically, so are shutdowns.

  • Wanbleeman

    No, no state of emergency for this fool. So do your job, override Mitch McConnell and do the right thing Republicans.

  • Steven E

    Seems like he has realized that spending the money from another source is likely misappropriation and a none starter. So once again he looks big and sounds stupid.

  • kritikosman

    The easiest way out is for you (trump) to quit!!

  • SJC

    The proper way is to forget about your wall and get the government running.

  • Justbkind16

    He's really stuck between a rock and a hard place. Calling it a national emergency is not the easy way out like he ''bravely'' claims. He knows very well that it would set a precedent for a future Democratic president to do the same.

  • mtntrek3

    Well, thankfully Trump isn't the ruler of our country. We're going to make that clear next year.

  • Truthfully

    America held Hostage by gutless republican senators! May the next blue wave slap you in the face.

    Usually people learn by mistakes?

  • Truthfully

    the easy way out?
    No trump no easy way out of this mistake!
    Just like Alex Jones found out today. The Newtown Families get to look into ALL of Jones web site marketing and financial records.

    Now if we could just get a hold of trumps!

  • whoiamnow

    If the wall is that dang detrimental, then why not take the easy route? Oh, that's because he's a stupid liar.

  • J W

    When a child has a tantrum the surest way to insure that he will do it again is to give in to his coercion. The Democrats have passed bills to reopen Government, the Republicans are refusing to vote on them. They are enabling the Presidents childish behavior and insuring that we will see more of it. They along with the President are solely responsible for the suffering of Federal employees and need to open the Government now.

  • Tstruck

    Well the gofundme for the Trump memorial wall is a bust ... shut down because it didn't reach its goal. All donations will be returned.

  • Robin

    Just saw a clip of Donnie from today speaking to reporters. Had a big hair out of place. Looked even more ridiculous than normal.
