Trump Says He Doesn’t Care About Unpaid Federal Workers
President Donald Trump tweeted that he did not care about unpaid Americans who work for the federal government who happen to be Democrats.
Trump also failed to mention that House Democrats passed a bill on Jan. 4 that funds the government, but the GOP-controlled Senate refuses to vote on it because Trump has said he would veto a bill that did not include $5.3 billion for funding the wall (which Trump said has already been funded by trade agreements):
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?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 5, 2019
