His staffers and cheerleaders aren’t helping.
Things aren’t looking good for President Trump. The government shutdown—for which the public mostly blames him, despite his claims to the contrary—is now in its 16th day. Democrats are officially in charge of the House. Trump has made no progress on securing funding for his unpopular border wall. People are swarming, mostly unsupervised, over our National Parks. And, to top it off, he and his staff have made a series of shutdown-related blunders this weekend that only make things worse for Republicans. Here’s a partial list of events fueling the administration’s woes.
Trump told reporters he “can relate” to federal workers going without pay during the shutdown.
Really? Trump then added, without a shred of evidence, that many federal workers “agree 100 percent with what I’m doing.”
My question to the president, “Can you relate to the pain of federal workers who can’t pay their bills?” Pres. Trump:”I can relate…”. Watch: pic.twitter.com/WJCBHZQ15x
