[CORTES, DENT, POWERS - offer views on the need to deal with a porous border even with a government shutdown, what will happen in Congress, how Trump will "own" the shutdown, which is not in the interest of the country, how we have a government in chaos with the right {Fox} now turning against the president leading him to change course, how the resignation of Secretary of Defense Gen. James Mattis ia a rebuke to Trump, the frenetic pace of news in the Trump world, how the wall is the foundational promise of his campaign, a debate on the border issue, how Mexico was supposed to fund this!.]
