The Great Shutdown Showdown of 2019 has shown more clearly than anything before the central reality of Donald Trump’s presidency: He does not lead a country; he leads a movement.
Trump is president of the Republican base. He knows how to make his most passionate supporters vibrate like the reed of a clarinet. And they have the same effect on him.

So why is Trump so intransigent on a wall that was broadly understood, even by a large share of his supporters, to be a pipe dream — or, as Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) put it, merely “a metaphor for border security”?

Trump, it should never be forgotten, is a president who was put in office with just 46 percent of the popular vote. He won not on breadth of his support, but on its depth in aggrieved pockets of the electorate.

“He believes the immigration issue is the heart of his emotional relationship with his base, and he’s right about this,” notes William A. Galston of the Brookings Institution. “He believes, not entirely incorrectly, that almost anything he would do to expand his appeal would dilute his relationship with his base. He is not going to take any chances with it.”

Trump is the president of the Republican base — not the country


   
No - Donald J Trump is President of this Country. He is your President.   :- )
Your personal feelings over that does not matter one iota.

He is my president.   Most all Americans are against this shutdown and want the Senate to do it's job and vote to open the government.

why won't they?
