Trump promises to pay federal workers after shutdown

Trump has promised Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine (Va.) that he will sign a bill providing backpay to federal workers once the government shutdown, which has stretched 20 days, finally ends.

The Senate passed by unanimous consent legislation Thursday evening providing that federal workers essential and furloughed employees will be paid once the shutdown is over.

Federal employees are due to miss paychecks Friday, which has caused consternation in the Washington, DC, region.

Trump made his pledge in a phone call with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) as part of an effort to work out a deal to adjourn the Senate this week.

1. Is this pledge in writing or was it videotaped?

If not, then forget it.

His word is worthless. You could even say he lies.

8. He can prove it by actually signing the bill.

Until then, he can fuck right off.

9. I thought the back pay was a given.

That surprises me, but then again, a shutdown has never gone on this long.

So easily avoidable. I didn't think he could surpass his assholeness way back when but he proves me wrong daily.

11. And Mexico will pay for the wall

A promise from Trump is not one I would take to the bank.

12. This whole thing really makes no sense

Because of the lack of a congressional vote the money to fund this portion of the government is not there. But as soon as there is a vote, it will be there. Talk about fucked up...

13. He didn't pay caterers saying using his name was sufficient and they'd make money off it

Seriously. You can look that up.
