Trump Lies, Claims ‘Most Of The People Not Getting Paid’ In Shutdown Are Democrats





President Trump blamed Democrats for the Trump government shutdown, claiming that “most of the people not getting paid” while the government is closed are Democrats.

“Have the Democrats finally realized that we desperately need Border Security and a Wall on the Southern Border. Need to stop Drugs, Human Trafficking, Gang Members & Criminals from coming into our Country,” Trump tweeted Thursday morning.

“Do the Dems realize that most of the people not getting paid are Democrats?” he added.



The president did not provide evidence to back up his claim.

Senator Bob Menendez fired back on Twitter, writing: “Once again, our “stable genius” President is spewing lies. US federal employees serve the United States—not one party. Guaranteeing that our dedicated government workers have financial security should not be a partisan issue. #ThursdayThoughts”




Sen. Mark Warner tweeted: “This is outrageous. Federal employees don’t go to work wearing red or blue jerseys. They’re public servants. And the President is treating them like poker chips at one of his failed casinos.”

The president during a trip to visit U.S. troops in Iraq on Wednesday doubled down on his demand for $5 billion for a border wall to end the shutdown, now in its sixth day.

“Whatever it takes. We need a wall. We need safety for our country. Even from this standpoint. We have terrorists coming in through the southern border,” he told reporters.
