    Trump, as usual, did nothing.

    Do you think Mitch McConnell will honor his public pledge to allow an up and down vote on immigration reform including DACA? How do you think that will end up considering the overwhelming public support for DACA?

    Oh I see, Trump only gets credit when its negative. The GOP has offered a way for these "dreamers" to gain citizenship, the dems shut down the govt. The dems want illegals to keep coming. But tell me, why should I try to reason with you? You have demonstrated your inability to admit when you are wrong.

    What way did the GOP offer for the Dreamers to get citizenship? Please be specific,

    What exactly did Trump do that he should get credit for as regards the end of the shutdown? Again, please be specific.

    It's specific enough to make everyone realize that you made false claims. But since you do that here on a regular basis it comes as no surprise.

    The country is fractured and nothing Donald Trump has done, is doing or is likely to do in the future will unfracture it.

    Trump had zero to do with ending the shutdown; the resolution was obtained in negotiations between the Democratic leadership in the Senate and Mitch McConnell, who said:

    McConnell reiterated Monday morning that he would move to vote on an immigration bill if the two sides can’t agree to one by Feb. 8, as long as the government is still fully open.

    “It would be my intention to take up legislation here in the Senate that would address DACA, border security, and related issues as well as disaster relief, defense funding, health care, and other important matters,” McConnell said. “It would be my strong preference for the Senate to consider a proposal that can actually be signed into law, a bipartisan, bicameral group is already negotiating, and I look forward to completion of its work.”

    Since disrupting negotiations on Friday, Trump has done little but watch cable news and tweet:

    Schumer said he hadn’t spoken with Trump since their Friday meeting at the White House ― before the government shut down. “The great deal-making president sat on the sidelines,” he said.

    This is all to the good; I suggested that the Congressional leadership simply ignore Trump and just send him bills to sign - they seem to have accepted this principle.
