Trump Pummeled on Twitter for Ending Shutdown With No Money for Wall: He ‘Ceded His Presidency’ to Pelosi


The Twitterverse watched Donald Trump‘s speech from the White House Rose Garden on Friday, and the broad online consensus is that he just lost this battle for his border wall.

The president confirmed that he will sign a continuing resolution that will temporarily re-open the government and end the current shutdown, even though he did not secure a federal funding down payment for his southern barricade.

Since the government shutdown was the longest in American history and caused a plethora of national outrage, political observers were naturally going to be curious to see if the reports were true that Trump was about to back down on his position. Now that he has, there’s an avalanche of online commentators saying he just effecivetly caved in to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).
