‘No Cave!’: Trump shoulders shutdown blame, bets Democrats will pay in 2020

The question for the White House is not who’s to blame for the partial government shutdown but rather who will voters blame for weak border security in 2020.

President Trump is convinced that Democrats will pay a hefty price with voters for opposing his border security plan, and he vowed Tuesday to never “cave” in the shutdown fight.

Democrats remain just as adamant that they are winning the showdown, with polls confirming that most Americans pin the blame on Mr. Trump for the shutdown, now in its fifth week.

Jim McLaughlin, a GOP pollster closely allied with the White House, said congressional Democrats have miscalculated.

“They think the shutdown helps them. They think leaving the DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] kids out there helps them,” he said. “But that’s just not where mainstream America is right now.”
