    Trump should sign the deal to keep democrats from changing the subject from their horrid few weeks in the news cycle—back to another partial shutdown.

    Then immediately, starting shuffling monies from the Homeland defense budget or other places to start on the wall.

    It’s the only way to go. Democrats refuse to compromise.

    Executive branch doesn't have the power of the purse. This new "compromise" only has 1.375 billion for the wall. Shut it down.

    it would appear that the demmycrats wanted something for people crossing the border illegally (reduced ICE detention centers) but didn't bother asking for anything for DREAMERS......

    The ‘power of the purse’ is a reference to congressional authority to levy taxes and/or allocate funds to wherever, make a budget etc.

    But, once funds are allocated it’s a different issue. Who knows how many excess billions are laying around just in the defense budget, for example.

    "Down by the border, Trump was in outsized form, firing off his dubious claims on immigration while torching Democrats with fierce new attacks on climate change and abortion.
    In Washington, under the Capitol dome, Republican lawmakers worked diligently with those same Democrats on the kind of institutional Washington compromise that anchors the conventional politics Trump disdains.
    It was not clear what will happen next. But with Trump reveling in the embrace of his adoring, partisan crowd, it's quite possible that he returned to the White House with his base-baiting instincts replenished.
    Negotiators say they reached an agreement in principle to avert shutdown
    Negotiators say they reached an agreement in principle to avert shutdown
    In his hour-and-15-minute address, Trump excoriated Democrats and repeated false claims that the nearby wall had meant huge cuts in the city's violent crime. But the President told the audience he had chosen not to learn the details of a bipartisan deal to avert a shutdown before he clambered onstage. If he actually did know full well what was going on, then he couldn't bring himself to describe what on paper appears to be a huge disappointment.
    That in itself was a hint that there was no famous victory to crow about and that the agreement reached in Washington -- which contains only $1.375 billion for barriers and no wall -- falls well short of the President's demands for $5.7 billion to fund a campaign promise that has an almost mystical hold on his base.
    He might have dodged the question on Monday night -- but Washington is waiting for an answer. What will the President do next?
    Will he tear up the congressional agreement and stand with his most loyal supporters by refusing to cave on the wall? Or will he accept the compromise,which could prevent a repeat of a government shutdown that hurt him politically?
    He seems to be keeping his options open.
    To embrace the agreement reached in tortuous congressional negotiations, Trump would have to try to spin a clear loss as a win -- a tactic he seemed to hint at during his rally.
    As his crowd belted out "Build the wall" -- Trump tried to grope for a way out: "You really mean 'finish that wall,' because we have built a lot of it."
    The President said he had been told by aides before the rally that a deal had been clinched but he had not wanted the crowd kept waiting by finding out what was in it.
    "I could have stayed out there and listened or I could have come out there to the people of El Paso in Texas. I chose you," Trump said. "Maybe progress has been made, maybe not."
    But details were already filtering out of the talks in Washington about the shape of Monday's deal. It is hard to believe that the President wouldn't have been told if the outcome had matched his demands that triggered the longest government shutdown in history late last year.
    He also declined to go into details on the deal in an interview with conservative Fox News pundit Laura Ingraham, who has a proven track record of influencing him on immigration matters -- conducted before his rally.
    "A lot of things have changed. I can't go into detail -- I just heard it very quickly coming over to see you," Trump told Ingraham.
    Emphasizing the scale of his dilemma, his conservative allies in the House began to mobilize against the deal.
    "While the President was giving a great speech in El Paso, Congress was putting together a bad deal on immigration," tweeted House Freedom Caucus co-founder Rep. Jim Jordan, an Ohio Republican."
