❝ “I’m increasingly worried that President Trump will want to shut down the government again because of impeachment,” House Majority Leader Chuck Schumer told reporters. “He always likes to create diversions. I hope and pray he won’t want to cause another government shutdown because it might be a diversion away from impeachment.”
Republicans have insisted the government will not shut down, but that was also their position in December when Trump kicked off the longest government shutdown in history over Democrats’ refusal to fund his border wall. Without action, the government will shut down Nov. 22.
Trump might shut the government down over Ivanka getting a hangnail.
