WH Economic Advisor Larry Kudlow: Federal Employees Are “Working For Free” Out Of Allegiance To Trump

The Hill reports:

President Trump’s top economic advisor on Thursday said federal employees were “volunteering” to work amid the partial government shutdown in part because of their “allegiance to President Trump.”

“They honor us and they do it because of their love for their country and the office of the presidency and presumably their allegiance to President Trump,” National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow said while speaking to reporters at the White House briefing room.

Talking Points Memo reports:

Earlier in the White House briefing room, responding to a reporter’s question, Kudlow said of unpaid federal workers: “God bless them. They’re working for free. They’re volunteering. But they do it because they believe government service is honorable and they believe in President Trump and they’re working as hard as ever.”
