One year to the day of Donald Trump's inauguration the government has shut down.
The House and the Senate were unable to come to an agreement by the funding deadline of midnight on Friday effectively shutting down the federal government.
The deal was sealed when Forty-four Democrats and four Republicans voted against a short-term spending bill that passed the House on Thursday.
The shutdown has occurred despite the fact that the Republicans run all three branches of the government.
The GOP is in control and this shut down is on them and their leader.
Earlier in the day Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer met with Donald Trump to discuss a deal to avert the shutdown in which Schumer even offered concessions on Trump's boarder wall but was still rebuffed by the Republicans.
So much for electing the guy behind the "Art Of The Deal".
Besides, Trump even called for it...
And never forget that during the 2013 government shut down Donald Trump said on Fox & Friends that the fault lay solely with President Obama...
“Well, if you say who gets fired it always has to be the top. 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 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. So I really think the pressure is on the president,"
And now, in the midst of the government shutdown, it is being reported that Trump is whining that the transpiring events would make him miss his inauguration party scheduled for tomorrow at Mar-A-Lago which he is charging $100,000 - $250,000 a head.
It all about priorities folks.
