    President Trump on Monday said he is standing by his demand for border-wall funding, dismissing calls from one of his top Republican allies to temporarily reopen the government.

    Asked by reporters about Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-S.C.) suggestion that Trump sign a stopgap spending bill to buy more time for talks, Trump responded, “I did reject it.”

    “I’m not interested. I want to get it solved. I don’t want to just delay it. I want to get it solved,” he said.

    The president also hit Democrats for traveling to Puerto Rico for an event while he has been at the White House.

    “I’ve been here all weekend,” he said. “The Democrats have to do something, we need their votes, otherwise we can’t solve” the so-called “crisis” along the U.S.-Mexico border.

    The comments come on the 24th day of the partial government shutdown and underscore that there is no end in sight to the wall-funding standoff.

    “I don’t know that we’re close to the deal, it should be the easiest deal I’ve ever seen,” Trump said.

    Narcissistic people like Trump reject advice of others just like Hitler rejected advice not to fight USSR and Tojo rejected advice not to fight US. That's why narcissistic people end up failing after things get going for them.
