The White House has released its first official comment after the government officially shutdown when the Senate was unable to pass the continuing resolution before the midnight deadline.

The statement, posted on Twitter by White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, blames Senate Democrats for the “Schumer Shutdown,” saying that they “put politics above our national security, military families, vulnerable children, and our country’s ability to serve all Americans.”

“We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands. This is the behavior of obstructionist losers, not legislators.”

If “obstructionist losers” is what the White House is saying in their official press release, Trump’s tweets tomorrow morning are most likely going to be lit.
