Partial suspension of the government’s work has been going on for the 23rd day.
The US President Donald Trump and representatives of the Republican Party in Congress are responsible for the continuation of the partial suspension of the US government, which has been going on for the 23rd day-a record time in the history of the country. These are the results of a public opinion poll conducted by The Washington Post and ABC. Its results published on Sunday.
According to the results of a study conducted in the period from 8 to 11 of January 788 among Americans, found that 53% of respondents perceive the guilt of the Republicans and Trump in the “shutdown”, while Democrats blame only 29% of respondents. Another 13% believe that both parties are equally to blame for the continuation of the budget crisis.
Since December 22, 2018 in the United States partially suspended the work of the Federal government due to lack of budget funds. This was due to the fact that the Republicans and Democrats in Congress failed to agree on the parameters of the budget, in which Trump and his party members in an ultimatum want to include funds for the construction of the barrier on the border with Mexico. Democrats say they will never approve the allocation of money from the Federal Treasury. The administration of Republican Trump demands to allocate $ 5.7 billion from the budget for these purposes .
