Trump To Federal Workers Who Are Working Without Pay, Many Involuntarily: ‘You are great patriots.’

In a cringe-worthy Stalin-esque tweet, Trump spoke out on the federal workers who are struggling to survive because of his insistence on a border wall.

Fox News reports:

“With hundreds of thousands of federal workers set to face another federal pay period without paychecks, President Trump thanked the ‘great patriots’ for their service and dedication — 30 days into the partial government shutdown.

Trump tweeted Sunday night: ‘To all of the great people who are working so hard for your Country and not getting paid I say, THANK YOU – YOU ARE GREAT PATRIOTS! We must now work together, after decades of abuse, to finally fix the Humanitarian, Criminal & Drug Crisis at our Border. WE WILL WIN BIG!’

Employees of the Transportation Security Administration are among the estimated 460,000 federal employees who have been working without pay. The agency has been experiencing far higher than usual unscheduled absences during the shutdown — and now the agency said staffers have been calling out of work because they can’t afford to get there.

According to a Sunday release, ‘many employees are reporting that they are not able to report to work due to financial limitations.'”
