Donald Trump was up bright and early on the one year anniversary of his presidency to attack and blame the Democratic Party for what he sarcastically called their "present" to him: a government shutdown.


With both the GOP-controlled House and Senate unable to reconcile a resolution keeping the government funded, Trump blamed the Democrats, tweeting: "Democrats are far more concerned with Illegal Immigrants than they are with our great Military or Safety at our dangerous Southern Border. They could have easily made a deal but decided to play Shutdown politics instead. #WeNeedMoreRepublicansIn18 in order to power through mess!"

There was more to follow, with Trump pouting, "This is the One Year Anniversary of my Presidency and the Democrats wanted to give me a nice present. #DemocratShutdown."
