Trump uses Obama’s words in new argument for wall funding


President Trump is manning the White House solo, he tweeted Saturday, posting that “there’s almost nobody in the W.H. but me” as he attacked reports that he lacks a strategy for ending the shutdown.

“I do have a plan on the Shutdown,” he wrote. “But to understand that plan you would have to understand the fact that I won the election, and I promised safety and security for the American people.”

“Part of that promise was a Wall at the Southern Border. Elections have consequences!” he wrote – reprising former President Barack Obama’s lecture to Republican opponents in 2010.

The posts were part of a lengthy tweetstorm on the southern border and government shutdown, now in its 22nd day after Congress adjourned for the weekend.

“We will be out for a long time unless the Democrats come back from their ‘vacations’ and get back to work,” Trump wrote. “I am in the White House ready to sign!”
