The Hill reports:
President Trump said Saturday that he wants to end a partial government shutdown, claiming that he doesn’t “care that most of the workers not getting paid are Democrats.”
The government entered a partial shutdown on Dec. 22, closing 25 percent of the government and leaving hundreds of thousands of workers furloughed or forced to work without pay for the time being.
Trump first claimed in December that most of the federal employees impacted by the shutdown are Democrats.
I don’t care that most of the workers not getting paid are Democrats, I want to stop the Shutdown as soon as we are in agreement on Strong Border Security! I am in the White House ready to go, where are the Dems?
