    The United States federal government shutdown of 2018–2019 occurred from midnight EST on December 22, 2018, until January 25, 2019 (35 days). It was the longest U.S. government shutdown in history, and the second federal government shutdown involving furloughs during the presidency of Donald Trump.
    Date: December 22, 2018
    Part of: Presidency of Donald Trump
    2018–19 United States federal government shutdown ...

    -----------------------------------------------------

    Yet the House and the Senate were contolled by who, Republicans. It was for the wall, so tramp finally delcared a "national emergency" and the wall is still not done, or anywhere close to it.

    But it was a "national emergency".

    Sorry you didn't get your food stamps when he shut down the government, but that's the way it goes.

    Maybe get a job next time.

    Zombie thread. They just refuse to die, but still keep stumbling around looking for brains.

    Too bad a dumb ass like you doesn't understand that Congress is supposed to submit reasonable budgets to The President.

    This is one area where Congress can hold a President Hostage.

    If the President doesn't agree with their budget or in this case a CR, they accuse him of shutting down The Government, but since they have failed to submit a budget in a LONG time, and continue to send Continuing Resolutions, then it's The Congress failing to do their job.

    Put a Budget on The President's Desk he can sign that doesn't have a bunch of DemoPork in it.

    I believe he also has the records for fastest turnover, shortest term press secretary, and most lies.

    Doesn't this qualify as flame bait, click bait or Spam since it's Old News being used just to trash The President?
