is not agreed the republican leadership couldn't find the sixty votes needed to keep the government open the government shutdown means hundreds of thousands of public servants night have to stay home. following the senate vote the white house said the democrats were behaving like obstructionist loses its words were echoed by the republican senate laid out what we've just witnessed on the floor of the sun a call decision out of democrats that shovel. millions of americans for the sake of irresponsible political games a government shutdown was one hundred first of all double but democratic sen chuck schumer said he tried his utmost to give the republicans what they wanted he was prepared to offer donald trump money for his border wall if the president would soften his hard line on immigration no one who deserves the blame for the
position we find ourselves in more than president trump. he walked away from two bipartisan deals including one today in which i even put the border wall on the table ultimately though the democrats wouldn't back down on one key demand they wanted guarantees on the future of eid hundred thousand undocumented immigrants brought to the u.s. is children republican say that's holding ordinary people hostage but with most americans supporting a deal on the children democrats are calculating that voters will back down. ok we're going to get some analysis on all this now from us expert bars for money a profit fessor politics of politics rather at both ends by college thank you for coming in bars i want to pick up on those bipartisan deal deals that didn't come through that we were just hearing about in our poll the last time we had a shutdown twenty thirteen donald trump blamed president obama for failing to make
the deal necessary deal with the other side what does this latest shutdown tell us about donald trump's fame skills as a deal maker well i mean first of all it tells us something we knew already which is that congress in american politics is very polarized it's very difficult to get a deal done but it's true i mean trump ran on the ticket saying that he's a great negotiator that he had certain skill superior skills from the business world that he would translate to the political political world obviously this is not something that's that has worked. now this is of course the u.s. domestic story the u.s. federal government has shut down you've just written this book the dead in makati in germany in germany rather the crisis of democracy should talking about the wider . implications of people like trump of bragg's it and so on how does this u.s. domestic development the federal government shutdown how is that going to affect
the outside world. well first of all i think it's going to impact the domestic world trump was elected because there was a deep frustration with the political establishment something we're also seeing in the new pim european contacts and he promised that there would be a protection of american workers from the outside world from globalization there would be investments in infrastructure there's a debate about it big infrastructure deal towards the end of general that's something he can finance if there is this government shutdown and obviously with the with the tax reform he's hamstrung in what concerns his his budget what's the outside world wealth i mean you could be cynic and you could say he would be distracted from the outside world which some would see as in the bat it's on the other hand every time that he's cornered at home sometimes there's an escape and there's a problem case and that sets off a whole spiral of events that is hard to calculate ok. thanks for

very mixed set of views there back to boris folan professor of politics and balanced budget college what is your view of the trump presidency so far particularly the way that donald trump conducts foreign policy there's been a lot of chaos and this is what foreign policy experts have been fearing the volatility in the international system we've seen a couple of crises. in the korean case the russia affair different moments where it wasn't quite clear what position the u.s. was standing on and i think this is one thing that worries. states leaders and foreign policy experts most is that the u.s. seems to have taken a peculiar turn over the last one hundred years one could almost say it was always clear that the u.s. was leading the globe that it was the hedge i'm on but it that it was a beneficial hedge among the believed in certain universal values such as democracy
