16 Jan Do you support the Partial Government Shutdown?
President Trump promised strict measures to put a stop on illegal immigration. He presented construction of a wall as an intelligent solution of an overly complicated problem. Democrats criticized this solution heavily as a wall is extremely easy to get around by digging under it, using tunnel systems, climbing the fence and using wire cutters to remove barbed-wire or locating and drilling holes in vulnerable sections of the border.
This political war extended beyond imagination and now has resulted in a partial government shutdown. On Dec. 11, in a nationally televised meeting, Trump warned Democratic leaders, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer that he would go ahead to the extent of shutting down the government to generate support for his agenda. He has tried to shift the blame on the Democrats since then.
Trump addressed the nation in a televised speech to state his case and vented his anger on Twitter.
“At this point, it has become their, and the Democrats, fault,” Trump tweeted on Monday.
Various federal agencies have partly closed or requested contractors to stop operating. Coast Guard personnel are serving without pay, the National Park Service is no longer collecting waste, and the Smithsonian museums have been closed for public visits.
The White House estimated a decline of 0.13 percentage in growth every week due to this shutdown.
