Lieu: ‘Democrats Will Never Cave’ to Trump on Wall

On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s Situation Room, Representative Ted Lieu (D-CA) declared that “Democrats will never cave to Donald Trump’s demands in a government shutdown.”

“I would be open to a comprehensive package that deals with different elements of immigration,” Lieu said. “However, we can’t do that in the context of a government shutdown. Democrats will never cave to Donald Trump’s demands in a government shutdown. Because if we do, it’s just going to incentivize him to do this again any time he doesn’t get his way. So, we cannot talk about wall funding in the context of a government shutdown.”
