For the past 35 days of the shutdown, House speaker Nancy Pelosi has taken a firm stance on a border wall. It’s not complicated, she just said “no”. Instead of being malleable and easily persuaded like most Democrats, she took a firm stance and never backed down. She just said “no”. When Trump wanted his State of the Union but Nancy Pelosi told him to postpone, Trump said yes and dared Nancy to say “no”. And she did exactly that. She said “no”. I really believe that Democrats need to hold firmer stances like Nancy Pelosi does. If we do that, it makes our party seem strong and attracts voters.
