Spanish term or phrase:guerra de trinchera
This is from a Chilean paper describing a political debate about legislative reforms. I can get the gist, but the word trinchera isn't in my dictionary and I'm not sure exactly what it means in this context:
"fomentan una guerra de trinchera entre el sector público y privado muy dañina para el país, y más bien responden a una visión política sin justificación técnica".
I'm also not sure whether it is a term used specifically in Chile. Any explanation and suggestions as to the meaning would be gratefully received. Thanks in advance!
