Trump’s Latest Claim: Federal Workers Support Shutdown And Want The Wall

A bizarre presidency has become even more so with President Donald Trump’s latest claim about the government shutdown.

ABC News reports:

“President Donald Trump argued Tuesday that federal workers support his position in the fight with Democrats over billions of dollars in funding for the border wall, four days into a partial government shutdown with no clear end in sight.

‘Many of those workers have said to me and communicated, “stay out until you get the funding for the wall,”‘ he said, when asked for his message to the hundreds of thousands of federal workers either furloughed or working without pay.

‘These federal workers want the wall,’ he added. ‘The only one that doesn’t want the wall are the Democrats.’

After speaking to American troops deployed around the world on Christmas, Trump said that he would be open to meeting with congressional leaders, but said he didn’t know when the government would be reopened.”
