House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters that President Donald Trump unpaid federal workers to ask their own fathers for loans during his shutdown:
It is so sad that in a matter of hours, just a few days, many people, federal workers, will not be receiving their paychecks. And what that means in their lives is tragic in terms of their credit rating, paying their mortgage, paying their rent, paying their car payment, paying the children’s tuition and the rest. The president seems to be insensitive to that. He thinks maybe they can ask their father for more money. But they can’t.
The Washington Post reports that Coast Guard families were told to have garage sales to financially cope with Trump’s government shutdown.
