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!”
