President Trump: I think we’re doing a great job with the shutdown negotiation. We have no choice. Look there will be, excuse me, I’m totally involved. I’m involved with principle because ultimately it’s going to be resolved by principle. Schumer and Nancy Pelosi and myself can solve this in 20 minutes if they want to. If they don’t want to it’s going to go on for a long time. I will tell you this, if we don’t find a solution it’s going to go on for a long time… And those people who voted for Donald Trump, in a great election. Are for it. And let me tell you people who didn’t vote for Donald Trump are for it also.
Chuck and Nancy will be begging for the government to open in another week.
