President Donald Trump walked out of a Wednesday meeting with Democratic leaders to resolve the government shutdown after seeing it as a “waste of time.”

Trump and congressional leaders have met numerous times throughout the partial government shutdown to resolve it with little success.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) have opposed his border wall plan. Trump walked out of the latest meeting with them with still no solution in sight.

With no acknowledgement, the U.S. government had casually dispossessed the American middle class of its retirement assets and pushed millions of Americans into acute dependency on government programs. ... Government dependency negated the American dream.
