Um, yeah. I’m sure the government employees see it that way. /s
Trump would rather let the American people suffer, from unpaid staff to families going hungry due to the suspension of SNAP, than to man up and actually act like a president for a change (or a man, for that manner). As for the Senate members who will back him up instead of passing a stopgap budget with a 2/3 majority, they are just as culpable and hopefully will be voted out on their next reelection attempt. What a contemptible bunch of slugs.
