Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, later today, released a official White House statement and made it clear that Trump and his administration is putting up the American people first, while on the other hand, the Democrats, led by Chuck Shumer, were landing favors to illegal aliens, while totally ignoring the American citizens.
The budget to fund the governement and the Children’s Health Insurance Program for the next six years, failed a cloture vote in the Senate, 50 to 49 votes. All Democrats voted against cloture except Senator of Indiana, of ALabama, Missouri, North Dakota and West Virginia. All Republicans voted for cloture except 4 of them.
Mitch McConell, representative of Kentacky voted no, but only for procedural reasons. John McCain who was absent for private reason, did not vote.
In the official report Sarah Huckabee Sanders gave to the media he said that the Senate Democrats own the Schumer Shutdown. They put politics above, and ignored the national security, military families, children and the honor to serve the American people. She continued, saying that, Republicans will not negotiate the status of unlawfull immigrants, while Democrats hold hostage the U.S citizens.When Democrats make a decision , and start paying the U.S armed forces and first responders, then the White House will reopen negotiations about the immigration process.
This so called the government #ShutDown comes on 1 year year anniversay of President Trump inauguration.
