Trump Lashes Out at ‘Mostly FAKE’ News About the Shutdown, Says ‘It Could Be a Long Stay’

President Donald Trump tweeted this morning to decry “mostly FAKE” news about the shutdown and his decision to withdraw from Syria.

“I am in the White House, working hard,” the President tweeted. “News reports concerning the Shutdown and Syria are mostly FAKE. We are negotiating with the Democrats on desperately needed Border Security (Gangs, Drugs, Human Trafficking & more) but it could be a long stay.”

He also defended his Syria decision, though he said this time that ISIS is “largely defeated.”

Trump’s tweets were posted around the time news broke that the top U.S. envoy to the global coalition fighting ISIS submitted his resignation yesterday over his objections to the President’s Syria announcement.
