Judging from Chuck Schumer’s tone this morning, it sounds like he has no intention of negotiating with President Trump to end the shutdown, and he’s now in a desperate search for a way around the White House:
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says Congress "needs to move forward without the president" in ending the shutdown.

Schumer & Pelosi could end the shutdown immediately and end all the “suffering”:
Fund the wall, Chuck.
YOU are the only one causing suffering right now you fool.

Simply spend the money. Experts at the border have already said it works. What are you waiting for?

But it doesn’t sound like Schumer’s going to have much luck convincing Mitch McConnell:
Enforcing our laws has not become unethical overnight. The physical barriers at the border that Democrats supported yesterday have not somehow become a radical right-wing position today. Border security still matters. American families still deserve safety.

Good luck with that, Chuck!
