Trump's full court press fails to sway voters on border wall, earns him credit for shutdown

(Worthy News) - President Trump’s prime-time plea to Americans to support his plans for a border wall fell flat, and the public increasingly blames him for the government shutdown.

Not only did last week’s Oval Office address fail to boost support for Mr. Trump’s wall — polling numbers are virtually unchanged compared to a month ago — but Americans aren’t even giving the president the benefit of the doubt anymore.

One poll even found more people believed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, who delivered a televised rebuttal to the president, than believed Mr. Trump. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]

  1. The public blames Trump for the current government shutdown because this isn't the first time he closed down DC.

    "'I'd love to see a shutdown if we don't get this stuff taken care of,' Trump said at a White House meeting on the eve of a shutdown in February. 'If we have to shut it down because the Democrats don't want safety, then shut it down.'"

    That shutdown only lasted nine hours, so there wasn't much blame to go around. But now Trump is looking to blame Republicans as well as the Dems for his own decisions, including Mitch McConnell!
