President Donald Trump, the man who was born with a silver spoon, has a message for federal workers struggling without pay.
“President Donald Trump said he ‘can relate’ to federal workers who cannot pay their bills because of the partial government shutdown.
Trump was asked by a reporter on Sunday if he could understand what federal workers who cannot pay their bills are going through. The shutdown has led to about 800,000 workers being furloughed or expected to work without pay.
‘I can relate, and I’m sure that the people that are on the receiving end will make adjustments, they always do, and they’ll make adjustments,’ Trump said. ‘People understand exactly what’s going on. But many of those people that won’t be receiving a paycheck, many of those people agree 100 percent with what I’m doing.’
On Friday, the President said that he was willing to allow the shutdown to last ‘months or even years” if funding is not allotted for a border wall.'”
