Ben Cardin: Maybe Trump Wants a Shutdown

‘He created this problem when he put a date on the backs of the DREAMers’

RUSH EXCERPT:

CARDIN: "As we get close to agreement, the president steps in and makes it very difficult to get our job done. He created this problem when he put a date on the backs of the DREAMers. There was not a crisis. He created the crisis. Yes, it will be good for Congress to act. Now we have to act. And we’re getting closer to acting. But the president’s threats just make it much, much more difficult. Now threatening to close government? One would think maybe he wants the government shut down. This is clearly not help have."
