Donald Trump has shut down the government to distract from investigations into his crimes and to try to fire up his racist base with scare tactics about a border wall. If a government shutdown stopped useless agencies or entitlements, I wouldn’t mind so much. However, it is stopping lots of vital work done by the government such as air traffic control, fatal accident investigations, etc. 800,000 government workers will quit and new ones will need to be hired at great expense. We have corrupt government run by a Russian pawn and our country is now headed the direction of Venezuela. The Trump shutdown is extremely foolish and shortsighted.
