Brit Hume of Fox News stated President Trump’s threats to shutdown the government was a “dumb” idea.
Hume stated, “I think it’s a terrible idea.”
“Whichever party is deemed responsible for or most enthusiastic about a government shutdown gets the blame. People like government cut down they don’t like it to be shut down and this has been proven time and time again. The last time the Republicans were seen as responsible for a shutdown this was back during the previous administration, it was a shutdown over — I can’t remember now what, yes, over Obamacare —it was a disaster. The Republican Party is standing with the voters plunged to the lowest level in the history of the Gallup poll. When the Democrats were seen responsible a year or so ago was the Schumer shutdown it lasted two days and the Democrats completely capitulated because they saw the handwriting on the wall. It works badly for those deemed responsible.”
