President Donald Trump has given an update on his plans for the government shutdown, and it is a smack in the face to New York Sen. Charles Schumer.
First off, Trump will not be taking his annual Christmas trip to Mar-a-lago, and will stay in D.C. to work on reopening the government.
However, Schumer is on vacation as the Senate is adjourned until Thursday.
“I will not be going to Florida because of the Shutdown – Staying in the White House! #MAGA,” he said.

The Senate minority leader said he will not budge on border funding.
Something he has voted for in the past but refuses to now.
New York Sen. Charles Schumer must think someone elected him President of the United States.
That dream scenario for him, and nightmare for everyone else, must be playing in his head.
Because now the Senate minority leader is making demands of what President Donald Trump must do if he wants to reopen the government.
And guess what his demand is.
“Everyone knew yesterday, long before the House vote, that the president’s wall lacked 60 votes in the Senate,” he said on the floor of the Senate on Saturday.
“It is proven to lack even 50 votes,” he said.
“It will never pass the Senate, not today, not next week, not next year,” he insisted.
“So Mr. President, President Trump, if you want to open the government, you must abandon the wall, plain and simple,” he said.
His arrogance is off the charts.
But in his arrogance he made one giant mistake.
He took ownership of the shutdown.
