Trump’s Government Shutdown

Shutdown
Democrats continue to urge President Trump to compromise and re-open the government so it can work on behalf of the American people.
On December 21, 2018, President Trump and House Republicans shut down parts of the federal government in a shameful, partisan effort to force taxpayers to fund an expensive and ineffective border wall. As a result, 800,000 hardworking federal employees are either furloughed or forced to work without a paycheck for the duration of this shutdown. Millions of Americans are being affected as government services have been suspended, including having their tax refunds delayed, having home loan approvals delayed, seeing decreased security at airports, and being put at risk as national parks operate without staff or guides. House Democrats are working to reopen government, but President Trump and the Republican-led Senate have refused to take action to end this costly shutdown.
