President Donald Trump observed Martin Luther King Jr. day praising federal employees who have not been paid in a month due to his government shutdown that they are “GREAT PATRIOTS,” and promising them “WE WILL WIN BIG!” at the southern border.
“Today we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for standing up for the self-evident truth Americans hold so dear, that no matter what the color of our skin or the place of our birth, we are all created equal by God,” added Trump, whose administration has been dinged for, among other things, pulling back on housing discrimination investigations.
Kicking off Day 31 of his government shutdown, Trump tweet-snarked, “Democrats campaigned on working within Washington and ‘getting things done!’ How is that working out?”
Early in the morning, Trump had tweeted “No President in modern times has kept more promises than Donald Trump!” thanking Bill Bennett for that remark, which excludes Trump’s promise to lock up Hillary Clinton, drain the swamp, kill Obamacare, and get Mexico to pay for his Border Wall.
After tweeting, Trump and Veep Mike Pence visited the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial in Washington, D.C.
