Trump has no idea who he's up against

These aren't contractors trying to get the money owed them.
These are two people who have been negotiating things of consequence at the highest level most of their adult lives.
Silly theatrical tactics aren't going to do squat.

Schumer already maneuvered him into taking responsibility of the shut down.
And Pelosi owns him.

1. He usually negotiates like this

I will pay you the $10,000 you bid on the job

And then on payday pays them $5000 and says if you want the rest sue me.

3. Hey Pelosi could do that too.

She can promise him the $5 billion then write a budget containing only $5 and say "sue me for the rest."

5. And You Know What.....

he gets away with doing that. That's why he keeps doing it.

Trump will soon invoke a National Emergency - and you know what - they'll let him get away with it.

2. Yes. He is in over his head.

Always has been, but the last 2 years he had a spineless complicit Speaker and Majority Leader. While he still has the complicit Majority Leader, he now has to deal with a House that will check his power.

Trump is used to pushing people with less money or clout around. As you said, that is how he had always done business. He picks fights with people he can outspend or choke up in court. Notice how he tries to jab at Mike Bloomberg, but has NEVER tried to sue or actually back up the words he has spoken. He knows Bloomberg is actually rich and powerful and will clean his clock.

He thought that Schumer and Pelosi being public servants would be easy to cow, but he is finding out what real power is.

7. And Bloomberg does NOT like him.

Who do you think came up with the name "Don the Con"? Pretty sure it was him.

8. Nailed it.

I posted something like that earlier today. He punches down and then has a press event to broadcast a victory lap punch down.
