The government has now been shut down for four weeks and it doesn’t show signs of stopping. On Friday, Fox News host Shep Smith decided to discuss the shutdown with his colleague Chris Wallace, who said “both sides” are to blame for it.
But Smith had another opinion, saying that the shutdown “was all on” Trump.
“The president said I’m shutting down the government. I’ll own the shutdown. I’ll carry the mantle and he shut the government down. That’s that,” Smith said.
“I mean it takes two to tango,” Wallace said.
“There’s no tango here. The president said I’m ‘shutting the government down,’” Smith responded.
Smith then noted that Trump was never going to get funds for his wall as Democrats now have the majority of the House.
He said, “The president in the midterms said ‘you have to vote for Republicans because the Democrats aren’t going to give us a wall.’ The Democrats ran in the mid-terms in 2018 saying ‘we’re not giving him a wall.’”
“They won 40 seats plus in the House of Representatives and they’re not giving him a wall. [Trump] closed down the government. That’s what happened. He can reopen it tomorrow just like he closed it down. It’s all on him,” Smith said.
