Most parents know that toddlers seek attention. Democrats had no deal for POTUS big reveal. US House Speaker, Representative Nancy Pelosi California Democrat rejected POTUS offer to trade $5.7 billion for a permanent wall in exchange for a temporary "Dreamers." extension.

She said Trump’s plan a compilation of several previously rejected initiatives, each of which is unacceptable and in total, do not represent a good faith effort to restore certainty to people’s lives.

Pelosi added that his proposal does not achieve what Democrats have long sought for the "Dreamers," which is a pathway to citizenship or permanent legal status.

As the shutdown hits four weeks and counting, remember what Trump said on Dec. 11.

Trump: If we don't get what we want ... I will shut down the government ... So I will take the mantle. I will be the one to shut it down. I'm not going to blame you for it.

It was a day for an egg-cream and a nothing-burger, delay. As he tries to scare USA taxpayers again on the border terrorism, and attacks Chuck and Nancy for not playing ball with him on the #Mexico wall, he offered a temporary solution for a permanent confusion.

Meanwhile, as the government shutdown enters Day 29, Trump issued his cryptic tweet stating it would bar members of Congress from using government planes without prior written approval.

The new policy, announced in a memo to department heads, was put in place one day after Trump canceled a military plane for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who was planning to lead a congressional delegation to Afghanistan this weekend.

Under no circumstances during a government shutdown will any government-owned, rented, leased or chartered aircraft support any Congressional delegation, without the express written approval of the White House Chief of Staff.

Nor will any funds appropriated to the Executive Branch be used for any Congressional delegation travel expenses, without his express written approval.

National emergency? A real deal? A scathing rebuke of The Democrats? All of the above?

800, 000 government workers care. #DONews

Haven't we all had enough of POTUS DC Drama?
