It was a special message to Donald Trump on Christmas eve, tweeted in the world. “I’m all alone (Poor me) in the White house,” wrote the most powerful man in the world. He is waiting for the Democrats to come back and a Deal on border security and agreed to. Donald Trump home alone? A US President who waits to the public about being alone laments and the fact that the Opposition returns in a cooperative mood from the Christmas holiday? This may belong to the Repertoire of Trump’s sense of humor. However, the feeling of – at least political – isolation seems to be with him, entirely justified. Because the year is for Trump to conceivable ungeschmeidige way to the end.
Trump has bogged down in a bitter dispute with the Democrats. He refused, a budget law to sign, if the Congress gives billion for the construction of a border wall with Mexico. He has promised his followers for a long time. But the Democrats blocked. The budget for several ministries and their subordinate authorities have now blocked a quarter of the government apparatus since the days of downtime, hundreds of thousands of government fucking officials are on forced leave or you will need to work without salary. Trade unionists ranting.

The slide came for Trump’s highly inconvenient. Usually, he endeavoured in the midst of great political turmoil, always the reference to a booming economy and inspired stock market.
