Well, no, no one's innocent in this. Let's just say: Houston, we've found the problem.
The Democrats, whose votes we need in the Senate, will probably vote against Border Security and the Wall even though they know it is DESPERATELY NEEDED. If the Dems vote no, there will be a shutdown that will last for a very long time. People don’t want Open Borders and Crime!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 21, 2018
That was then ("shutdown will last a very long time"). This is now:

If you don't want to listen to it, the relevant connection is:
“We are going to have a shutdown. Hopefully, the shutdown will not last long."
Crawfishing already; again. Of course, we "MUST HAVE BORDER SECURITY!" (you know he means it; all caps and an exclamation point!), but we must not pay our Border Patrol for border security. Or anybody else in the DHS (Hello, TSA employees! Merry Christmas!) or the DOJ, or about 9 other agencies. Because this shutdown will last for a very long time, but hopefully it will not last long.
No wonder the Senate doesn't know what to do. They had a deal with Pence which Trump blew up to appease Limbaugh and Coulter (are they still alive?). As somebody said on "Washington Week" (or was it PBS NewsHour?), our enemies are noticing just how easily our POTUS is lead around by his ego. As if they hadn't learned that lesson already. Well, good thing our media has figured it out, huh? Better late than never.
