Mr. Trump wants a win with the wall and the government shutdown. He has backed himself into a corner. He needs to save face.

Here is my proposal: During the campaign, he promised to build a wall paid for by Mexico. Mexico will not pay for the wall. He, of course, would not want his supporters to pay for the wall. That was not the promise. Logically, he has done all he can because America was not the nation to make the payment.

Mr. Trump reopens the government (a win) and reopens negotiations with Mexico to help pay for the wall (a win) without the wall actually being built. Government reopens and Mr. Trump can move on to his next victim.
