In the world of the things Donald Trump cares about the most is missing his anniversary party at Mar-a-Lago due to the government shut down, according to the Daily Beast.
Trump reportedly complained behind closed doors about having to miss a party he was planning to hold at Mar-a-Lago for his first year in office because of the government shut down.
Not shocking news, but a bit of color: GOP source tells me Trump is furious about the shutdown, which is messing up his anniversary and keeping him from going to Mar-a-Lago for his party.

According to multiple close sources to the president who spoke with the Daily Beast, Trump spent Friday complaining that the Republican-controlled Congress’ inability to strike a deal to keep the federal government funded could make him miss “my party.”
Trump had planned quite an expensive party at his Palm Beach resort, costing about a $100,000-per-pair.
But Trump’s plan to hold a party for his one-year anniversary of his inauguration could crumble right in front of his face.
The White House said on Friday that Trump’s party trip was delayed pending the passage of a spending bill to keep the government funded past midnight Friday.
Bad news for Trump, the Senate decided to reject the bill on Friday. This means Trump’s one-year inaugural anniversary will most likely be the same day the government shuts down.
