Trump: 'Worst thing' about possible shutdown is effect on military

Source: The Hill

President Trump said Thursday the “worst thing” about a possible government shutdown would be its devastating effect on the U.S. military.

"If the country shuts down, which could very well be ... the worst thing is what happens to our military,” Trump told reporters outside the Pentagon, where he is meeting with military leaders.

The president reiterated his threat to blame Democrats for a shutdown, saying “it’s up to the Democrats” whether Congress is able to keep the government open. Republicans control the House and Senate.

Trump’s comments come just hours before the House is set to vote on a stopgap spending bill to avert a shutdown.

It’s unclear whether House Republican leaders have the votes to pass the plan, adding suspense ahead of the Friday midnight deadline.

2. When all else fails, appeal to fear. Works every time.

"Those damned Democrats want you to die! Our military is only as big as the next 10 countries combined--we need to make that number 12! MAGA!"

3. Do what a REAL President would and start negotiating for a compromise solution

You're not gonna' accomplish much if your entire skill-set in governing is sending tweets and then escaping to a golf course.

8. The military won't shut down.

There may be furloughing of non-essential civilians, nothing more.

More fear-mongering by the Shithole-in-Chief (Shithole Donnie)

10. I worked for the Federal Govt

 

When Gingrich and his cohorts forced a shutdown of the government in furtherance of his Contract on America. Only “non-essential” functions stopped. “Essential” employees were required to report to work while the Government remained shut down. I don’t anticipate that members of the military will be sent home and the country will be left defenseless. But the dumbfuck Trump 37% will buy this pablum once it is spewed on Fox News.

14. What will happen among other things is that the IRS shuts down.

Tax returns will not be processed and sent out.

Social services will shut down.

Lots of people who conveniently forget how much they depend on the government will find out what happens when Grover Norquist's wet dream comes true. For a short time, at least.

This is going to hurt a lot of people who aren't expecting it.

16. Obviously,

there aren't enough republicans for them to be able to govern.

First, we'll have to get rid of the democrats and then get both houses of congress up to 32 or so million.

17. Has no effect on military or DoD

They'll stay open for business as will other national security or federal law enforcement departments. The shutdown will affect the National Park Service, HHS, HUD, Dept of Education, etc.

19. The military

is all these soulless bastards care about.

They don't care about old people, sick people, disabled people, workers rights, consumer rights, having first world infrastructure, having a decent medical system or anything else.

Kim jong Un should be proud of what republicans are doing to this country as that is exactly what he and his messed up family done to north Korea.
