It makes me wonder if the house will simply draft a new bill with no border wall money? Declaring an emergency is just gonna be fought in the courts and likely lose (I hope), and then he doesn't really have any other option than to take whatever new deal the democrats come up with after he's pissed them off a second time. He got less money this time around and brought his already abysmal approval rating lower during the shutdown, how does he think it's a good idea to roll over it a second time and ruin his chances of getting any money at all???
