    Former President George W. Bush on Friday called on President Trump and congressional leaders to "put politics aside" and end the partial government shutdown, which is about to enter its fifth week.

    "Laura W. Bush and I are grateful to our Secret Service personnel and the thousands of Federal employees who are working hard for our country without a paycheck," Bush said in a social media post showing him delivering pizza to federal workers. "And we thank our fellow citizens who are supporting them."

    "It’s time for leaders on both sides to put politics aside, come together, and end this shutdown," he added.

    As of Friday, there was no sign the shutdown was about to end. Trump canceled a congressional overseas trip that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and other House members were scheduled for over the next week. That trip included stops in Brussels and Afghanistan.

    Trump's move came shortly after Pelosi called for a delay in the president's State of the Union address, which is slated for Jan. 29, due to security concerns as the Secret Service and Department of Homeland Security are unfunded due to the shutdown. Republicans rejected Pelosi's move as a political stunt and said the Secret Service was able to handle the event.

    Mr. Bush -- Mr. PRESIDENT -- I couldn't agree with you more.  Instead of playing Quien es la mas pequeña (That's spanish for "Who's the most petty"), you need to come to the table.  Donald Trump, you concede something.  Nancy & Chuck, you guys concede something.  If you can agree just long enough to get the government open, GREAT!  Come back to the table and negotiate some more.  If it worked for Ronald Reagan, it can certainly work for you.

    Just Saying.

    Wow, you know things are bad when George W Bush represents the voice of reason Razz !

    I don't expect either side is likely to just cave here: Trump is just too dug in to cave, and if the Democrats cave then the message that it sends is "All Trump needs to do to get what he wants is throw a temper tantrum and hold federal workers hostage". However, at some point, the question of who's responsible for the shutdown has to go from "Who started it?" (clearly Trump) to "Who's keeping it going?" (less clear).

    I'm sure there's some kind of compromise that can be figured out here. Give him some meaningful border security he can call a wall (but isn't really), in exchange for protection for Dreamers, perhaps.

    This is where I agree with what was said at TCH. Ronald Reagan was a brilliant negotiator in the fact that he believed that if he could get 70-80% of what he wanted, he could come back to the table and negotiate for the rest. Trump really should learn from Reagan's example, IMO.
