Donald Trump campaign advisor Laura Trump and wife of Eric Trump, sat down with BoldTV and was asked by Carrie Sheffield what she would say to the workers not getting paid during the government shutdown.
“So in terms of the workers who are coming to work and not getting paid,” Sheffield asked Trump, “what would you say to them?”
Listen, this is not fair to you and we all get that but this is so much bigger than any one person,” Laura replied, “it is a little bit of pain but it is going to be for the future of our country and their children and their grandchildren and generations after them, will thank them for their sacrifice right now.
Trump continued: “I know it’s hard, I know people have families, they have bills to pay, they have mortgages, they have rents that are due. But the president is trying every single day to come up with a good solution here. And the reality it’s been something that’s gone on for too long and been unaddressed our immigration problem.”
“If we do nothing right now, it’s never going to get fixed. This is our one opportunity.” Trump said.
“So I would just tell them, please stay strong, we appreciate everything you’re sacrificing, we are behind you and we are going to do everything we can to resolve this.”
Trump all-time high disapproval
The government shutdown is now on day 33 and new poll numbers are not looking so good for President Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress.
In new Politico/Morning Consult poll, 57 percent of voters disapprove of Donald Trump’s job performance, while 54 percent blame Trump and Republicans for the government shutdown. Only 35 percent blame congressional Democrats.
Another CBS poll out this morning shows that 71 percent of the American public also believe Trump should not be holding workers hostage to his demands.
President Trump has not backed down from his request of $5.7 billion for his border wall which Democrats will not agree to.
The president also made a proposal to give temporary DACA protections in exchange for funding but Democrats are saying that’s not enough and the Supreme Court already left DACA in place until the next session.
