Thanks for your comment; very interesting. However, I was not looking to pin blame, merely to speculate what Trump will do next. As you note, the whole point here is that the shutdown is unnecessary. But as you also note, since the GOP controlled both the executive and legislative branches when it started (and continues to control the Senate), this is not a case of “both sides are to blame” when it comes to red vs. blue.
