They meant #TrumpShutdown right? His party controls the House, Senate, and presidency.

Trump had a chance to avoid this, but he blew it. Art of the deal lol.

Hey, what does Trump think when it comes to government shutdowns?

Quote:
President Trump’s comments about the 2013 government shutdown during the Obama administration have resurfaced as the federal government races toward a shutdown of its own.

Trump spoke to “Fox & Friends” in 2013 and was asked who would be fired during a government shutdown, as shown in a clip posted by "Morning Joe."

“Well, if you say who gets fired it always has to be the top,” Trump said. “I mean, problems start from the top and they have to get solved from the top and the president’s the leader. And he’s got to get everybody in a room and he’s got to lead.”
He said that further down in history, “when they talk about the government shutdown, they’re going to be talking about the president of the United States, who the president was at that time.”

“They’re not going to be talking about who was the head of the House, the head the Senate, who’s running things in Washington,” Trump said.


“So I really think the pressure is on the president,” he added.

Trump has said he will blame Democrats for a possible government shutdown, saying on Thursday that “it’s up to the Democrats.”

Government funding is set to run out at midnight on Friday.

Trump has invited Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) to the White House to try and strike a deal over government spending.

Trump’s past tweets about the 2013 shutdown have also resurfaced in recent days, including one where he said Republicans “should not be afraid of a government shutdown.”

Trump's comments blaming Obama for 2013 government shutdown resurface
Oh right.

Yeah, the greatest deal maker ever headed to the Mar a Lago yet? I'm sure he's got a porno star to pay off or something.

Republicans have a Senate majority but it takes 60 votes to pass the House bill to keep the Federal government funded. Instead of negotiating Schumer showed up to the WH with a list of fresh demands on top of DACA amnesty. Even an extension of the CHIP program would not induce enough Democrats to keep the Government funded.

Let's see, the Federal government's funding is held hostage to the Democrats expanding list of demands. It is perfectly consistent with the Resistance credo of burn it all down while blaming Trump. There is no deal to be made when Democrats have their intractable hearts set on creating a new group of loyal voters by rewarding people here illegally with the franchise.

Remember how Obama and the Democrats refused to negotiate during the last shutdown? Nothing has changed with this one. Welcome to the Schumer shutdown.

Steny has been around quite a while, elected term after term by Maryland's 5th district. It looks like he was operating on political theater auto-pilot.

Democrats are betting that the shutdown will be blamed on Republicans ahead of the '18's. That could backfire. But maybe not. Trump bad is all they got.

Trump, my ass. The Democrats in Congress believe that illegal aliens come first over anybody, and come hell or high water, those people willl not be shunned. Who are the idiots? I nominate Pelosi and Schumer, for starters.

I would think that for someone as astute to the workings of our government as you appear to be, that you wouldn't make such an disingenuous statement as this. You know that the Senate Republicans do not have the votes to move the CR to the floor for a vote without at least 9 Democrats.

If you want to be taken seriously, you should refrain from making such asinine statements like this.
