Here’s President Trump on Thursday in Coraopolis, Pennsylvania addressing the government shutdown issue, saying that he thinks Democrats are looking forward to it to “get off the subject of the tax cuts because they worked so well.”
We’ll see what happens if there is a shutdown Again, I really believe the Democrats want a shutdown to get off the subject of the tax cuts because they worked so well. Nobody thought, including the Democrats, they could work this well. They’ve been so good that I think the Democrats would like to see a shutdown in order to get off that subject. That is not a good subject for them — the tax cuts, because of the way they have worked.
Also on Thursday, during a visit at the Pentagon, President Trump explained how a government shutdown by the Democrats will hurt the military.
“But again, the group that loses big would be the military, and we’re never letting our military lose at any point. We’re going to fund our military, we’re going to have a military that we’ve never had before because we’ve just about…just about never needed our military more than now. Thank you very much”
