1. The following are excerpts from a news report dated 3 January, 2019 under the headline "‘Could be a while’: Trump refuses to budge in shutdown standoff".

(Begin excerpts)
...The new Congress will gavel into session on Thursday, with Democrats taking over the majority in the House of Representatives. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) has sworn that Trump will “never” get money for the wall, while the most likely new Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-California) repeatedly denounced Trump’s wall as “immoral, ineffective and expensive.”

Trump has countered by arguing that the wheel is an ancient technology as well, pointing out that if walls didn’t work, former President Barack Obama wouldn’t have one around his home. He also dismissed Democrat arguments for a more high-tech solution as not enough.

The idea is that the wheel of time comes to a halt after hitting a wall. The following joke shows the use of the new term.

One day, Tommy met someone whom he thought was his childhood friend. He greeted his supposed friend: "Hi, my great friend Robin! There is not much change in your look since our last meeting 50 years ago. You seem to have discovered the key to wallwheel."

His supposed friend replied: "I don't have any secret to wallwheel myself. I am not Robin but his son Jack. Uncle Tommy, have you forgotten about me? You used to come to my house to play chess with my father when I was a child. Despite your wrinkles and white hair, the big birthmarks on the left side of your face are instantly recognisable."

There are three ways this shutdown can end:

* Trump gives in and signs bill w/o wall funding
* Congress passes bill including funding
* 2/3rds of both houses pass a bill that doesn’t include funding the wall. (Enough to override a veto)
