“I’m not going to negotiate in the press, but the president has been willing to negotiate on this point and the Democrats have not been willing to do anything,” Sanders said in reference to the $5 billion number Trump had initially demanded in border funding.

“It’s a very sad day when we can’t get Democrats to even show up for work and sit down with us and have these conversations and try to help make real solutions and get something done,” she emphasized.

Sanders accused House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) of being unwilling to negotiate because she is attempting to “protect her speakership.”

“Nobody wants anybody to struggle,” she said. “Nobody wants the government to be closed, that’s why we’re asking Democrats to sit down and negotiate something they actually support. The real question here is, Nancy Pelosi is only looking to protect her speakership and not protect her borders and that’s why she’s unwilling to negotiate with us and unwilling to make any type of a deal and unwilling to help do what is necessary.” More

Sarah Sanders blasted Democrats for the standoff that is now expected to keep roughly 800,000 federal workers from receiving paychecks into the New Year, claiming Democrats have “left the table altogether.”

Negotiation and compromise that’s the concept our system is built on, but in living memory, I cannot think of a time when the progressive fascists actually came to the table and negotiated in good faith.
