"President Trump is refusing to sign the paperwork to fund the federal government until Congress agrees to build a stupidly expensive fence along the Mexican border for him"

Stupid or not he's the democratically elected president and the border wall was his signature promise in the election. It should be built on this premise, regardless of who funds it. Democracy depends on politicians being able to keep their promises to the people, and not political point scoring and blackmail.
