With the United States government shutdown entering its third day, President Donald Trump on Monday said that he was all alone in the White House.
In a tweet, President Trump said, “I am all alone (poor me) in the White House waiting for the Democrats to come back and make a deal on desperately needed Border Security. At some point the Democrats not wanting to make a deal will cost our country more money than the border wall we are all talking about. Crazy!”

With Congress out of town and the debate over Trump’s demand for a $5 billion US-Mexico border wall at an impasse, the President sat holed up, tweeting no less than 10 times to lash out at opponents and reject responsibility for a plummeting stock market.
It is to be noted that he Democrats and even some Republicans, have already made it clear they would not vote for the border wall. However, in retaliation, President Trump refused to sign a broader spending bill.
A partial shutdown of the federal administration began on Saturday. The departments of Transportation, Agriculture, State, Housing and Urban Development were on shutdown while federal national parks and forests remained closed.
In the meantime, twitteratis posted memes and trolled the President as Christmas celebrations kicked off across the globe.
What happened with Mexico paying for the wall? Hahah

It’s actually called “Democracy” when Congress can’t achieve the requisite numbers to pass legislation to give you Billions for your crackpot ideas!
I know you think of yourself as a Dictator in an Authoritarian Regime but you are not & Thank God for that!
Resign, Go Quietly!
