With the possibility of a government shutdown increasing, Donald Trump is directing his attack on the Democratic Party. In his latest post on Twitter, the president made his agenda clear.

Trump on Twitter

As has been the case for years in Washington D.C., Democrats and Republicans have been unable to find common ground on the issue of spending. With immigration at the centerpiece of the current debate, the government is set to shutdown at midnight on Friday unless lawmakers can strike a deal. With Democrats pushing to extend Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Republicans calling for increased funding for a border wall and security, both sides appear unwilling to budge.

For Donald Trump, it's clear that he knows exactly who he plans to blame for the current issues in Washington, as the president lashed out during his latest Twitter post on January 19.

Taking to Twitter on Friday night, Donald Trump put the blame of a government shutdown on the doorstep of the Democrats in Congress. "Not looking good for our great Military or Safety & Security on the very dangerous Southern Border," Trump tweeted out.

Not stopping there, Donald Trump piled on his criticism. "Dems want a Shutdown in order to help diminish the great success of the Tax Cuts, and what they are doing for our booming economy," he added.

As expected, those who oppose the current administration and the Republican Party were quick to fire back at the commander in chief.

Twitter responds

Following Donald Trump's tweet on the government shutdown, social media users wasted no time firing back. "Not true. They want to protect the Dreamers, which you promised you would do.

Stop lying and make a deal already," one tweet added.

"The only thing that should be shutdown is your twitter account. Trumps still not going to date you," one Twitter user wrote. "It is hard to negotiate with those you have offended everyday," yet another tweet added.

"That's not true, they want an answer on DACA to help people. Something you wouldn't understand because the people it affects aren't rich," a follow-up tweet noted.

"Happy Anniversary!!!

of the smallest, most puny & boring inaugural in history. The LARGEST in US history? Yep, Obama in 2009. You could learn something about the American people here," a tweet stated. "Couldn't 'close the deal', huh? Yeah, I think I read something about that earlier this week," yet another tweet read.
