Democrats could solve the Shutdown in 15 minutes! Call your Dem Senator or Congresswoman/man. Tell them to get it done! Humanitarian Crisis.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2019
12. But people weren’t buying it.
YOU COULD QUIT PUNISHING 800k FED GOVT WORKERS & SOLVE THIS SHUTDOWN FASTER THAN IT TAKES YOUR GRUBBY LIL FINGERS TO TWEET YOUR WAR CRY. QUIT HOLDING AMERICANS HOSTAGE! #TrumpShutDown #EndTheShutdownNow https://t.co/Uv1f4iY5Pr— Monica Ruis Morton (@mattwmom) January 12, 2019
you could end the shutdown in ten seconds, but nope, you aren’t getting your way so you’re throwing a temper tantrum that effects the entire fucking nation. https://t.co/CVHrXy9MLV— abby🌹 (@heyittsabby) January 12, 2019
15. While also claiming he had a plan…!
I just watched a Fake reporter from the Amazon Washington Post say the White House is “chaotic, there does not seem to be a strategy for this Shutdown. There is no plan.” The Fakes always like talking Chaos, there is NONE. In fact, there’s almost nobody in the W.H. but me, and...— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2019
....I do have a plan on the Shutdown. But to understand that plan you would have to understand the fact that I won the election, and I promised safety and security for the American people. Part of that promise was a Wall at the Southern Border. Elections have consequences!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2019
17. …The extent of that plan appears to be stubbornly not doing anything while he demands his wall.
Of course Trump alone isn’t to blame, he’s also had a little help from his cronies like Turtleboy Mitch McConnell.
The House passed two bills last week to reopen the government, and yesterday, McConnell blocked them.— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) January 11, 2019
Let that sink in. Tomorrow we break the record for the longest government shutdown. Let’s vote on these bills.
Reminder: Every time you hear a Republican blame the #TrumpShutdown on Democrats, remember that Democrats have already voted to re-open government, supporting the exact same bills previously passed by Republicans.#MitchShutdown https://t.co/aXhJx5swrZ— BlueTexan🙅🇺🇸 (@lkjtexas) January 12, 2019
So as of today, Trump, who has been under counterintelligence investigation to determine if he is as Russian agent, is officially presiding over the longest government shutdown in U.S. history.— Adam Parkhomenko (@AdamParkhomenko) January 12, 2019
