The Trump White House has asked various government agencies to make a list of programs that would be severely impacted by the ongoing shutdown if it goes into March and April.
According to our information, acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney wants the information by Friday, the day the partial shutdown will marks its 5th week.
President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are deadlocked over funding for The Border Wall preventing Congress from passing legislation that would fund and reopen the government.
Speaker Pelosi is not allowing President Trump to deliver the State of the Union (SOTU) address next week, which prompted the President to say he is working on an “alternative” plan.
Expect President Trump to go directly to The People with the address ignoring the Democrat controlled Congress. Thus, countering Speaker Pelosi obstructionist move.
About 800,000 not essential (NE) federal employees out of a total federal government workforce of roughly 2,500,000, will miss their 2nd paycheck this week as the partial shutdown continues.
An interesting note: 90% of federal employees donated to HRC’s failed Presidential Campaign in Y 2016.
