Sarah Huckabee Sanders released a brutal statement slamming Democrats for putting lives at risk for their government shutdown. She did not hold back. “Senate Democrats own the Schumer Shutdown,” she started.
“Tonight, they put politics above our national security, military families, vulnerable children, and our country’s ability to serve all Americans. We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands. This is the behavior of obstructionist losers, not legislators,” she wrote.
“When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform. During this politically manufactured Schumer shutdown, the President and his administration will fight for and protect the American people,” she wrote.
President Trump released some tweets of his own. “Democrats are far more concerned with Illegal Immigrants than they are with our great Military or Safety at our dangerous Southern Border. They could have easily made a deal but decided to play Shutdown politics instead. #WeNeedMoreRepublicansIn18 in order to power through mess!” tweeted President Trump.
