It really isn’t interpretation… it is reality.
The President had control of all of government for two years. he had at one point in his lap a deal that would have funded the wall that he wants. He failed to fulfill his promise for two years.
Now that the political math has changed, he has taken on his shoulders not funding large swaths of the government to keep his base happy.
This is a manufactured crises. The funny thing is that if he uses his executive powers to solve a crises that he created, some who consider themselves “small government conservatives” will applaud his broad overreach of Executive power.
It is really weird.
