If the past is any indicator, it won't matter what the actual reasons are, folks will blame Trump.
How is that OK?
They are not responsible for Trump shutting down the government.

After listening to the Sean Hannity interview of President Trump tonight, My gut feeling says that President Trump will do these 2 things simultaneously.
1. Tell Mitch McConnell that he will sign the 2019 funding bill that was passed out of the House in late December. Even though the House was Republican controlled and the bill contained $7.5 Billion for Border Security, it was passed with a majority of both Democrats and Republicans voting "YEA".
2. Declare the Emergency, which will free up the funds for getting the border wall built.
The Federal Government will re-open quickly, and Wall Construction will begin later this Spring. Everyone's paid and America is on its way to reducing deaths of U.S. citizens from Illegal Aliens and Heroin.
Americans would view Democrats as extra callous, if they fought against those actions, at this point.
Shep brakes it down in this video.
what bill has been passed by the Congress?
I linked to the bill that passed the house in my reply to you.
Trump says he wont pass any funding that doesn't include a wall.
Here is another passed in the house.
This link will show you all the bills that deal with appropriations and were they are at.
Has the Senate passed it?
Has it reached his desk?
Is there a bill Trump has vetoed
“If either H.R. 21 or H.J. Res. 1 were presented to the President, his advisors would recommend that he veto the bill,” the White House said in a veto threat against the plans passed by House Democrats in the opening hours of the 116th Congress.

He'll declare a national emergency before it gets to true Armgeddon status, but he needs everyone to feel that it's justified and not a stunt before he does, and in the meantime, the Democrats could always come talk turkey.
