MANILA - The US government shutdown could drag further if President Donald Trump will not compromise, an analyst said Wednesday.

Trump addressed the American public on Tuesday to make the case for a border wall, which Democrats refused to fund, an impasse that has led to the partial shutdown.

"Nothing" will come out of Trump's "take it or leave it approach," Golden Gate University public administration professor Jay Gonzalez told ANC.

"Its going to drag a little bit more... President Trump doesn’t want to appear weak. To him there is no alternative to this moving forward, there is no compromise," Gonzalez said.
