President Donald Trump continued to challenge Democrats for shutting down the government over amnesty demands for illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children.

“The Democrats are turning down services and security for citizens in favor of services and security for non-citizens,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Monday. “Not good!”

Since the Government shutdown began on Saturday, the White House has repeatedly challenged Democrats for failing American citizens in favor of illegal immigrants.

Trump added that Democrats were “powerless” to resist left-wing activists in their party.

“Democrats have shut down our government in the interests of their far left base,” he wrote. “They don’t want to do it but are powerless!”

On Sunday, Trump suggested that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should end the 60 vote threshold in order to pass a budget and keep the government open.

“If stalemate continues, Republicans should go to 51% (Nuclear Option) and vote on real, long term budget, no C.R.’s!” he wrote on Twitter.

McConnell has consistently opposed using the “nuclear option” on the budget.

The Senate will vote again on Monday on a continuing resolution to keep the government open.
