‘I am all alone’, tweets US president Donald Trump on Christmas; Netizens can’t stop trolling him

Trump claimed the hundreds of thousands of federal workers who are furloughed due to the shutdown also want the wall, despite a lack of evidence supporting the contention.

He spoke to reporters in the Oval Office on Christmas morning. Many rank-and-file workers have gone to social media with stories of the financial hardship they expect to face because of the shutdown.

Asked what he would do if House Democrats send him a funding bill without wall funding in January, Trump said that his political opponents would be engaging in "presidential harassment" when they take over the House of Representatives, an apparent reference to Democrats' plans to conduct oversight of the Trump administration and investigate his family business and finances.

Trump followed up on a Monday tweet in which he said he "just gave out a 115 mile long contract for another large section of the Wall in Texas". "The only one that doesn't want the wall are the Democrats".

Speaking by video conference to members of all five branches of the United States military, he said, "I want to wish everybody a really Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year".

However, the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC), a union that falls under the AFGE and supports almost 17,000 border agents and personnel employed by U.S. Border Patrol, says that while the organization does not support the shutdown, it does support the border wall.

Trump then appeared to remember what day it was, and finished his short press conference by saying: 'But other than that I wish everybody a very merry Christmas'.

Trump excused federal employees from work on Monday and Christmas is a federal holiday, meaning the public could begin feeling the shutdown's effects on Wednesday.

Border patrol agents - along with other Department of Homeland Security personnel - are among those working without pay. Many are on the job but must wait until after the shutdown to be paid again.

The stalemate over how much to spend and how to spend it caused the partial government shutdown that began Saturday following a lapse in funding for departments and agencies that make up about 25 percent of the government.
