President insists government employees have told him: “Stay out until you get the funding for the wall.”
I understand that many of these federal workers POTUS says are happily furloughed for the wall are the 114 year-old parents of Korean War veterans who also regularly talk to Donald Trump. https://t.co/2YXcTCzrJd

There are a lot more federal workers than Stephen Miller.

They’re actually all Stephen Miller with different spray-on hairstyles.

This month I learned that Trump's tariffs lost me my biggest client and 80% of my annual income. Then my husband is furloughed due to the #TrumpShutdown. this is a very stressful time and believe me my husband does not want that wall

It's hard to believe Trump actually tweeted that he will use the #shutdown money to build the wall; income for rent/bills that hardworking federal employees will never receive. #StealingfromtaxpayersAGAIN

Friends in DHS NOT happy their holiday leave/sick leave is cancelled (USG won't let you take pre-approved leave after they shut down gov't–go figure). AND as emergency response officials, they have to work with no assurance next paycheck will arrive in time to pay rent. 😞🤬

My husband is active duty Coast Guard. Everyone thinks the military is getting paid during the shutdown, but the Coast Guard is facing no pay on the 1st due to being DHS and not DoD. We live in NYC, pay over $2K/month in rent, have a toddler and one on the way.#ShutdownStories

#ShutdownStories single mom, single income. If my pay from last two weeks shows up I have enough to pay bills, but not buy food. We live direct deposit to direct deposit, & something vital is always breaking – car brakes, stove, furnace.🤞 nothing goes until this is over.

#ShutdownStories I have family and friends that took back Christmas presents so they can afford rent and food once the paychecks stop. It’s hella expensive to live in the dc area. Everyone I know lives paycheck to paycheck. Missed pay will decimate them.
