President Donald Trump said Friday that he had spoken to unpaid federal employees who approved of his decision to shutdown the government over his proposed border wall.
Trump said in Rose Garden press conference after a meeting with Democratic leaders that he had seen a lot of people in the White House over the holiday break.
“I’ve been in this magnificent structure behind you, it’s called the White House and I was here on Christmas, I was here, my family was in Florida. I said go to Florida. I didn’t even find it to be a lonely place. There’s something special about the White House.”
“A lot of people that you think are upset and certainly they’re not thrilled, but they say, ‘Sir, do the right thing, we need border security,’ and these are people who are not getting paid,” the president claimed.
“Border Patrol yesterday was saying, sir, we’re affected by it. Do what is right. It’s time. This is after many, many decades, many decades. This should have taken place a long time ago. We’re going to get it done,” Trump added.
