Donald Trump: Government shutdown press conference
Trump told reporters that the partial shutdown now heading into it’s third week could go on for months, even years.
Whew, the chaos.
According to President Donald Trump, if Democrats don’t give him the $5.6 billion he’s demanding to build a U.S.-Mexico border wall.
Vice News reported that 800,000 federal workers were already affected.
Approximately 420,000 of them were forced to work without pay since Dec.22.
“This is national security we’re talking about,” Trump said. “We’re not talking about games.”
