Trump Fires Off Idiotic Tweet Trying To Blame Dems For Gov Shutdown. It Totally Backfired

In a blatant attempt to pin blame on Democrats for the government shutdown, President Donald Trump on Saturday fired off a tweet calling on Americans to call Democrats in Congress and tell them to reach an agreement with the White House on border security.

As the partial government shutdown became the longest in U.S. history, Trump continued to cast the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border as a “humanitarian crisis,” asserting on Twitter that Democrats could help solve the funding impasse in “15 minutes” by agreeing to his demand for more than $5 billion in funding to build a border wall.

“Democrats could solve the Shutdown in 15 minutes! Call your Dem Senator or Congresswoman/man. Tell them to get it done! Humanitarian Crisis,” Trump tweeted.

The shutdown, which is affecting about 25 percent of the federal government, entered its 22nd day on Saturday, making it the longest shutdown in the nation’s history.

Hundreds of thousands of federal workers have been affected by the latest funding lapse, with workers on Friday missing their first paychecks due to the shutdown.

In a meeting last week, Trump told Democrats that he was willing to keep the government closed for months or even “years” until Democrats relented on his demands, which Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has said will not happen.

Trump has also threatened to circumvent Congress and declare a national emergency over the issue, allowing him to allocate funding to the project at will.
