Trump Calls For A Government Shutdown In Latest Twitter Meltdown And Gets His A** Handed To Him

Donald Trump just made it clear that Americans should blame him if the government shuts down.

Trump has been seething lately because he failed to do anything productive during his first 100 days.

His most significant failure is his effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which would have stripped healthcare from millions of Americans and caused the price of healthcare to skyrocket.

Now President Obama’s signature healthcare law is more popular than Trump himself and Republicans are finding it more difficult to vote in favor of repeal.

To that end, Republicans and Democrats negotiated a temporary funding measure to keep the government running through September. Notably, most of Trump demands were left out of the bill.

And so, Trump is now throwing a temper tantrum on Twitter because Senate rules require 60 votes to pass legislation.

Trump is literally demanding that the Senate rules be changed so that his Trumpcare bill can be jammed down America’s throat and threatened to shut the government down if he doesn’t get his way.

Just so we’re all clear, if the government shuts down in September, just remember that Trump said that “Our country needs a good shutdown.”

Twitter users mercilessly bashed Trump’s recklessness.
