President Trump is pulled in opposite directions on his way out of the partial closure of the government when White House assistants insist on making a deal while his political advisers urge him to continue the fight – and launch a campaign with mail. against Democrats.
In the White House, assistants organize meetings with moderate Democrats and strive to prepare Mr. Trump to accept a deal for something less than the $ 5.7 billion demand. "This is no longer a war for communications," one of the assistants said earlier this week.
But the President's political advisors see the border wall as a more important issue among his supporters than the government's closure – even if it is a long one. These advisors are skeptical that closing the government nearly two years before the presidential election in 2020 will have a significant impact on the campaign.
"Greater work is not the fight for the wall than the closure of the government," said one councilor. who added that the border wall is a major problem for voters who have not decided on Mr Trump.
White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said there was no disagreement on Mr Trump's team, adding that closure was not "for politics, it was about the American people. "
" The only way we move is the one that opens the government and secures our borders, "said Mr. Gidley.

Trump's re-election campaign on Friday plans to launch a website called "Building a Border Wall," which wants supporters to donate $ 20.20. Instead, the campaign will send "red bricks" to the Congress House of Parliament Speaker Nancy Pelosi (California) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Sumer (DC, NJ).
An email that the campaign plans to send to its supporters promises to send "BEAUTIFUL BRICK" to Mr. Sumer and Mrs. Pelosi. "Together, we can build a BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL WALL around their offices to protect us from its radical agenda on the left," wrote the e-mail project.
"As Chuck and Nancy continue to rob the president, we will send the brick brick wall as they agree to secure the border," said campaign manager Brad Parsale.
Artificial bricks will carry the Tramp logo and " the fact of the need for border security, "said the campaign.

A report published by the President's Opioids Committee in 2017 says: "We are losing this struggle to prevent the entry of fentanyl in our country and kill our citizens, and we lose this struggle primarily through China. "
The campaign sent a series of calls for fundraising to supporters, highlighting the struggle for the border wall and the president's clash with the Democrats. – Of course he will not move! – said one president, sent on Wednesday. "It's more than a shutdown. We are talking about the future and safety of our America. "Another one sent on Thursday accused democrats of" illegally "denying" me "from the Union's address after Mrs Pelosi recommended postponing the speech until the government again.
