After spending all day on Sunday trying to work out a deal, Democrats and Republicans put the framework together to reopen the government. With a vote scheduled for Monday afternoon, Donald Trump decided to lash out on social media.

Trump on Twitter

It happened at midnight last Friday night after Republicans and Democrats couldn't find common ground and keep the government open. For the first time in almost five years, the government was shut down, this time over issues pertaining to immigration. The Democrats have fought to extend the DACA program, which allows illegal immigrants brought into the United States as children to stay in the country.

Republicans, on the other hand, are holding out for a deal that would include funding for increased border security, including for the construction of a southern border wall. In the 48 hours since the shutdown started, lawmakers have spent their time in Washington, D.C. in an attempt to get the government moving again. As reported by Politico late Sunday night, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced that a vote would take place at noon on Monday to pass a short-term bill to fund the government through February 8. In addition, the Republicans agreed to take up legislation that would protect DREAMers from deportation if their status wasn't addressed within the next month. In response, Donald Trump took to Twitter on January 21 to give his thoughts.

Taking to Twitter on Monday morning, Donald Trump ripped into the Democratic Party over the government shutdown. "The Democrats are turning down services and security for citizens in favor of services and security for non-citizens," Trump tweeted, before adding, "Not good!"

In a follow-up tweet, Donald Trump doubled down on his attack.

"Democrats have shut down our government in the interests of their far left base," Trump posted while concluding, "They don’t want to do it but are powerless!"" As expected, the billionaire real estate mogul has done his best to push back against accepting any responsibility for the shutdown, and instead has pointed his finger back at Democrats in the Congress despite Republicans holding a majority in the House of Representatives and the Senate.

With yet another vote scheduled for Monday afternoon, it's unknown whether or not there will be enough support from Democrats and Republicans to push it through. As the country waits for their federal government to reopen, only time will tell how it all plays out.
