READ: Donald Trump Tweets ‘Do the Dems Realize That Most of the People Not Getting Paid are Democrats?’

Nope.

President Donald Trump assailed Democrats in a tweet earlier today and claimed, without offering any evidence, that “most of the people not getting paid” during the current government shutdown are Democrats.

This prompted many to make the same joke.

Others said the president’s tweet implied he wanted the shutdown to target Democrats directly.

The president, who declined to sign a stopgap funding bill that would have prevented a government shutdown unless Congress allocate funds for his proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, made the comment just a day after he claimed, also without offering any evidence, that “Many of those workers have said to me and communicated, ‘stay out until you get the funding for the wall.”

“These federal workers want the wall. The only one that doesn’t want the wall are the Democrats,” the president added. I can’t tell you when the government is going to be open. It’s not going to be open until we have a wall, a fence, whatever they would like to call it. It’s a disgrace what’s happening in this country. But other than that, I wish everybody a merry Christmas.”
