If we are being honest, both sides know that the only real agenda for Democrats is to impeach Donald J. Trump. They have nothing else and cannot win on policy.
“Perhaps it would have been risky for Democrats to run on a specific agenda, because their ideas are so unpopular. Whenever Trump talks about immigration, for example, Democrats try to hide.” -Joel B. Pollak | Breitbart
The Shutdown is only because of the 2020 Presidential Election. The Democrats know they can’t win based on all of the achievements of “Trump,” so they are going all out on the desperately needed Wall and Border Security – and Presidential Harassment. For them, strictly politics!

Pelosi claims Trump’s wall is not a wall between Mexico and the U.S.: “It’s a wall between reality and his supporters”
Pelosi says Democrats don’t want the wall because it’s an “immorality between countries,” and it has “nothing to do with politics”

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) achieved one of the most remarkable comebacks in American political history when she re-took the gavel on Thursday after leading her party to crushing defeat in 2010.
So it was striking that her speech to the House was so unremarkable, filled with “unserious” boilerplate about transparency, “Dreamers,” and — of course — “climate change.”
She spoke about bipartisanship, but offered no real compromises, no proposals to bring both parties together.
That is because Pelosi’s real agenda is to replace Donald Trump in 2020 — if not before.
Throughout the midterm elections, Pelosi suggested that she had a plan for governing — but never revealed it. Nor did her party unveil an agenda. Republicans would never have been able to run on nothing. The media would have demanded to see their plan, and conservatives would have agitated for a 1994-style “Contract with America” — as they did in 2010.
It was understood Pelosi and her party were just running to oppose Trump — some through mere oversight, and some through impeachment.
(Indeed, several Democrats called for impeachment on their first day in office: “We’re gonna impeach that motherf**cker, exclaimed Michigan’s Rep. Rashida Tlaib, to cheers from a left-wing audience).
Perhaps it would have been risky for Democrats to run on a specific agenda, because their ideas are so unpopular. Whenever Trump talks about immigration, for example, Democrats try to hide.
There was no more embarrassing spectacle in recent months than the sight of Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) begging Trump, in full view of the press corps in the Oval Office, to take the debate about the border wall back behind closed doors.
Of course, there are also risks in running on nothing. Pelosi’s refusal to commit to a specific set of policies created a vacuum that has been filled by newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) — or “AOC,” as she is now cleverly calling herself.
AOC’s plans for a “Green New Deal” and “Medicare for All” are little more than pipe dreams. But they have the ring of authenticity to them: they are the socialist utopias previous Democrats pretended not to want.
Pelosi’s task will be to throw enough bones to the “resistance” caucus without actually doing anything that could provoke a backlash from the suburban districts that are the key to her new — and fragile — 18-seat majority…
