Trump: Government shutdown will go on 'for long time unless Democrats come back from their holidays'

Donald Trump defended his partial government shutdown strategy on Twitter on Saturday, claiming that critics were wrong to say he did not have a plan for the longest federal closure in American history as it reaches its 22nd day and counting. The shutdown, caused by an impasse between Mr Trump and Democrats over $5.6bn (£4.4bn) request for a border wall, has resulted in more than 800,000 federal workers missing their paychecks on Friday. Both Mr Trump and Congress have come out with proposed solutions to end the government shutdown.
