Trump on Shutdown: Democrats ‘Wanted to Give Me a Nice Present’ For One Year Anniversary


The morning after the federal government officially went into shutdown mode after the Senate was unable to pass a continuing resolution late Friday night, President Donald Trump decided to use his Twitter account to tell everyone that this is all the Democrats fault.

He also tossed out a little bit of snark.

As you can see in the tweets above, the president is slamming Democrats for pushing for DACA protections as a condition of accepting the spending bill, stating that they are “far more concerned with illegal immigrants” than funding the military.

Referencing his first anniversary of taking office, Trump called the shutdown a “nice present” from Democrats to commemorate his becoming president.
