Yesterday President Trump suggested he would accept a "down payment" on the wall in return for a bill to reopen the government for a period of three weeks. Many see this as the President blinking in his battle with House Speaker Pelosi. While working behind the scenes on a possible emergency order to get funding for the border wall Trump continues to demand funding before agreeing to sign any agreement that would allow government workers to get back to their jobs.
Is this a sign of President Trump bowing to pressure from outside sources to open the government while continuing to negotiate for the funding, or is POTUS playing chess while Pelosi plays checkers?
