“While I’m at the White House working, you’re out there partying tonight, but I don’t blame you,” Trump said in a video posted to Twitter.
The president remained at the White House on Monday, missing his traditional New Year’s Party at Mar-a-lago as the partial government shutdown continued.
“Enjoy yourselves, have a great year, have a really, really, Happy New Year!” Trump continued.
The president again defended his demand for a wall, noting that walls worked for securing the border.
Trump previewed a forthcoming government funding bill from future House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in 2019.
“The Democrats will probably submit a Bill, being cute as always, which gives everything away but gives NOTHING to Border Security, namely the Wall,” he wrote.
The president dismissed other border security funding as “tech stuff” and “meaningless bells and whistles.”
“You see, without the Wall there can be no Border Security,” he said.
