To offer in the midst of the partial government shutdown, President Trump may have something in return for the financing of its boundary wall, the national security analyst of Morgan Ortagus suggested, on the “Special Report” All-Star panel Tuesday evening.

Now, several days in the partial closure, which began at midnight on Saturday, the President stands firmly with its requirement for cross-border financing, some Democrats on Capitol Hill are refusing to hand.

“I can’t tell you when the government will be open. I can tell you not to open it until we call it a wall or a fence-whatever you want it to,” Trump told reporters from the Oval Office.


Tuesday’s All-Star panel, which included Ortagus, Bloomberg opinion columnist Eli Lake, and Washington Post opinion writer Charles Lane, weighed in on who has the better Stand during the shutdown.

Ortagus began by saying that no side is “willing to take a loss” and that the “only way out of this” is to run for President trump, “something placed on the table.”


“Even if you are in the new Congress, as we know, the Democrats are even to have more power, because you are in control of the house. So what I was a long couple of weeks of search in the new year, we trade a lot of and forths. But until the President and his team something like IF or something on the table, Democrats hungry, I think we said on the status quo,” Ortagus of the panel.

IF refers to the Deferred action for Childhood arrivals, an Obama-era program for the support of the U.S.-born children of parents who are in the country illegally.

Lane questioned whether it was more important to Trump and likely incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., “in the business” or you have to show your followers that you are “willing to shut down the government,” something like that, he thought, “played in your best interest.”

Lane agreed with the other panelists that the end of the shutdown a “larger solution” to immigration, adding that the shutdown benefits, the two sides politically.

The Washington Post-noted opinion writer, as the President of the rhetoric on the border wall has moved and how he will change his “position” in the interest of ending the partial government shutdown.

“All together, this was said about the posturing on both sides in the direction of the parts of the party base, which wants to see a fight over this,” Lane,. “Maybe between the lines of the statement, you will see the beginning of the end of the crisis, but it could still be well into the next year.”
