President Trump has hit out at Democrats for leaving Washington and taking vacations while he awaits their cooperation on reopening the government.
Trump fired off a tweet Sunday, noting that “The Democrats are everywhere but Washington as people await their pay.”
As The Washington Examiner reported, over 30 Democrats headed to the Caribbean island with 109 lobbyists and corporate executives in tow, claiming that they were scheduled to discuss their “shared priorities.”
Those priorities included seeing the Broadway show Hamilton and attending at least three parties.
Spotted: Sen. Bob Menendez on the beach at a resort in Puerto Rico on Day 22 of the partial government shutdown. Reports say dozens of Dems are in PR for the CHC BOLD PAC winter retreat — including meetings on Maria cleanup, and a party with PR’s “Hamilton” cast.
Of course, the leftist media has not reported on any of this, instead blaming Trump for the shutdown gridlock.
The White House also slammed Democrats, with Press Secretary Sarah Sanders accusing Democrats of “partying on the beach instead of negotiating a compromise.”
“I’d rather see the Democrats come back from their vacation and act. They’re not acting, and they’re the ones that are holding it up,” he said. “It would take me 15 minutes to get a deal done, and everybody could go back to work. But I’d like to see them act responsibly, and they’re not acting responsibly, and that’s it. I’m in the White House, and most of them are in different locations. They’re watching a certain musical in a very nice location.”
