Turbulence on the financial markets, paralysis of a part of the American administrations, and the remarkable resignation of the Us secretary of Defense: the Democrats have Donald Trump on Monday accused the US of ‘chaos’ to fund christmas. Now it looks like there is no way that a solution is in the works for the ‘shutdown’.
Since Friday midnight, slide both Republicans and Democrats are to each other the responsibility of the budgetary impasse that leads to a partial closure or ‘shutdown’ of the public services led. However, the problem is reduced to one point: the funding of a limes wall with Mexico, an electoral promise of Donald Trump in 2016. The Democrats do not want to know of such a wall.
“We are on the eve of Christmas and president Trump plunging the country in chaos’, say Nancy Pelosi, leader of the Democrats in the House of Representatives, and Chuck Schumer, her counterpart in the Senate. “The stock market plunges down while the president is making a personal war fight with the central bank, just after his minister of Defence has dismissed.’
No compromise in sight
Monday night had to president Trump confirm that there is no compromise in sight. He sticks to his limes wall. ‘No news about the shutdown. We need more security at the border.’ By the shutdown, some public services shut down.
Due to the ‘shutdown’ decided Trump to the new year, not to bring in the sunny state of Florida, where his club is located. Instead, he remains in Washington. With a storm of tweets (17 in less than 24 hours) he defends from there in the meantime his policies. “I’ll be all alone (poor me) in the White House to wait until the Democrats return to to close a deal on the much-needed border security’, tweette he.

Also, understand the Fed, according to him, nothing of ‘necessary handelsoorlogen, the strong dollar, or even Democratic shutdowns because of the border’. Trump likened the Fed will continue with a strong golfer who is very, very hard and far can save, but the finesse is missing for the wells.
