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".

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'.

"It's a disgrace, what's happening in our country", Trump said.
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.
In response to her post, a stranger with an affinity for the national parks, offered to help pay the mortgage: "You don't know me, but my grandfather was a game warden in Montana and we spent our vacations going to our [two] national parks", Ryan D Leaf said. 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.
