Rush Limbaugh: Schumer, Dems caved on shutdown because ‘Trump went on offense’

Radio host Rush Limbaugh says there's a easy explanation why a short-lived govt shutdown ended Monday: President Trump “went on offense.”

The guy in the back of “the golden EIB microphone” instructed listeners this week that Democrats have been so stuck off guard by means of “Schumer Shutdown” assaults that they did a political U-turn after 3 days. Mr. Limbaugh stated the Republicans’ refusal to barter on Saturday, coupled with rhetorical broadsides in opposition to Sen. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, constituted a political masterstroke.

“When was the last time the GOP won a shutdown showdown?” the conservative requested. “When used to be the primary time the GOP ever gained a shutdown showdown? Yet Trump has gained a shutdown showdown.”

Mr. Limbaugh stated that Democrats “wanted this [shutdown] to go on through the State of the Union,” however have been compelled to retreat after Mr. Trump proactively took keep watch over of the narrative.

“It sounds to me like that Schumer and the Democrats anticipated the Republicans to cave, and Trump didn't cave. And the Democrats know they’re on skinny ice on this and so Trump wins,” the radio host stated. They simply didn’t depend on the truth that — and that is past me why they didn’t — however they didn’t depend on the reality of Trump returning fireplace. Not simply returning fireplace, Trump went on offense.”

The deal struck by means of lawmakers on Monday, which incorporates a promise for a Senate debate on immigration reform, will stay the federal government working via Feb. eight.

“I am pleased that Democrats in Congress have come to their senses and are now willing to fund our great military, border patrol, first responders, and insurance for vulnerable children,” Mr. Trump stated in a commentary. “As I have always said, once the Government is funded, my Administration will work toward solving the problem of very unfair illegal immigration. We will make a long-term deal on immigration if, and only if, it is good for our country.”
