President Trump, holed up in the White House, issued a series of angry tweets blaming Democrats for the impasse, which will affect some 800,000 federal employees.
I am all alone (poor me) in the White House waiting for the Democrats to come back and make a deal on desperately needed Border Security. At some point the Democrats not wanting to make a deal will cost our Country more money than the Border Wall we are all talking about. Crazy!
