SCHUMER SHUTDOWN: Trump UNLOADS on ‘FAR LEFT’ Democrats

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.22.18

President Trump called-out obstructionist Democrats on social media Monday morning; blasting the liberal legislators for protecting “non-citizens” at the expense of the American people as the federal government shutdown enters day three.

The Commander-in-Chief lashed out at prominent Democrats -particularly Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer- as members of both parties struggle to reach a last-minute agreement that would re-open the government by noon Monday.

“The Democrats are turning down services and security for citizens in favor of services and security for non-citizens. Not good! Democrats have shut down our government in the interests of their far left base. They don’t want to do it but are powerless!” the President tweeted.

Republicans currently hold a 51-49 majority in the US Senate, meaning at least nine Democrats would have to cross the aisle in order to pass the 60-vote threshold required to pass the short-term budget resolution.
