DC Establishment GOPers Afraid to Back Trump on Govt Shutdown

Gutless Paul Ryan

So what else is new?  This is the reason 17 GOPers were vanquished by Trump in the run up to the presidential elections.
  None of them had Trump's courage and gets to stand up to Democrats for what is right for the American people.
The Hill reports President Trump is finding himself increasingly isolated less than a week ahead of a potential government shutdown, as even members of his own party admit that he has backed himself into a corner with his demands for $5 billion in funding for a wall on the Mexican border. 

“Everybody is looking to him for a signal about what he wants to do, and so far it’s not clear,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) said of the president.  

Few Republicans will criticize Trump on the record, but behind the scenes there is frustration that he has weakened the GOP’s negotiating position with Democrats. There is also a sense that Trump might not be worried about the fallout for his party if his own supporters delight in his fighting with Democrats.
