Donald Trump Tweets Up Storm During Christmas Shutdown

Trump had planned to celebrate at Mar-a-Lago, but stayed in White House

Following the government’s partial shutdown due to lawmakers failure to cut a budget impasse, President Trump took to Twitter on Christmas eve to address his critics over the situation.

As Senate Democrats declined to endorse a House funding bill, funding for about 25 percent of government services ran out on Friday at midnight.

Trump had planned to celebrate at Mar-a-Lago with his family but decided to stay in the White House instead following the shutdown.

Trump Tweeted almost twenty times amid the looming shutdown.

RT reports: He continued posting on Friday (ten), Saturday (seven) and Sunday (eight), then ramped up the schedule on Monday, with ten tweets by the early afternoon.

In addition to his usual complaints about “Fake News” and Democrats, Trump has also taken aim at the Federal Reserve, praised Saudi Arabia, and dismissed Washington’s envoy to the anti-ISIS coalition as an “Obama appointee” who gave Iran $1.8 billion “in CASH” as part of the “horrific” nuclear deal.

He also complained, tongue firmly in cheek, about being “all alone (poor me) in the White House waiting for the Democrats to come back and make a deal on desperately needed Border Security.”

The Clinton Presidential Center declared it would halt operations throughout the duration.

The center announced that its temporary and permanent exhibits in the Clinton Presidential Library and Museum in Little Rock, Arkansas, will be closed.

According to a pop-up notification on the museum and library website said that “National Archives facilities are closed,” and the website will not be updated throughout the shutdown.
