Donald Trump The Idiot-in-Chief
BDC News

Washington, Jan 10 Two Indian-American lawmakers have criticised US President Donald Trump for his plans to declare a national emergency to build a wall along the Mexican border that has led to a partial government shutdown.

Ro Khanna, the California Democrat, in a series of tweets talked about the implications of the shutdown and how it is affecting Americans as the partial government shutdown entered 19th day on Wednesday, making it the second-longest in the US history.

“Millions of Americans are feeling the effects of the govt. shutdown. It is unacceptable that 800,000 hard-working federal employees are furloughed. The President needs to negotiate a budget deal with Congress and open the government as soon as possible,” Khanna tweeted.

The shutdown does not affect the entire federal government but several major agencies, including the departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Justice, Homeland Security, the Interior, State, Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development.

“Trump may want to declare a ‘national emergency’ to sidestep Congress and build a border wall. The real ‘national emergency’ is that young Americans are drowning in student debt, families are forced into bankruptcy due to health costs & millions of our citizens are left behind,” Khanna, who represents California’s 17th district, said in the tweet.
