Donald Trump continues to press the Democrats on funding for his border wall.
Chuck Schumer and his fellow liberals refused to provide the votes to secure the border.
But now that Schumer and the Democrats shut down the government, Trump dropped the hammer on them that sent the left running for cover.
The fake news media and Democrats believe Trump will pay the political price for a government shut down.
But Donald Trump knows better.
The government workers who are furloughed and not being paid are liberal bureaucrats.
They are the deep state.
Have the Democrats finally realized that we desperately need Border Security and a Wall on the Southern Border. Need to stop Drugs, Human Trafficking,Gang Members & Criminals from coming into our Country. Do the Dems realize that most of the people not getting paid are Democrats?

Trump pointed this fact out because the media always claims government workers being sent home without pay adds pressure to Republicans to cave in shut down fights.
In this case, the pressure is on the Democrats.
It’s their voters being hurt.
Donald Trump and the Republicans don’t care if federal workers squawk about a shut down.
Trump’s tweet shows how badly the Democrats misplayed their hand.
They expected Trump to fold because that is what Republicans traditionally do in shutdown fights.
But Trump knows he holds the cards and the pressure is really on the Democrats.
