Why was there a government shutdown following the 2018 midterm elections? The better question to ask is why there was no government shutdown before the 2018 midterm elections. Had there been a willingness by the President to shut down the government and have the border wall battle while the GOP still had a majority in the House, there’s an excellent chance the wall would have been funded and in the process of being built as we speak without the need for a national emergency declaration.
They chose not to have the battle because a government shutdown would have harmed their chances of success in the midterms, at least that’s what they thought. I would contend they would have done better in the midterms had the been able to say, “See, we need more seats in the House and Senate in order to get the President’s agenda going in full swing.”
Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY) took to Twitter to express his support for the wall while he still opposed the use of a national emergency declaration to get it built.
There is a crisis at our border, but it’s not an emergency when Congress doesn’t spend money how the President wants. The President’s constitutional remedy is to veto spending bills that aren’t suitable to him, yet he has chosen to sign many bills that did not fund the wall.

Executive overreach is a problem regardless of which President is in the White House. Kudos to Massie for acknowledging that tribalism is secondary when there are bad actions being taken from within the tribe itself.
