Trump, Schumer begin blame game for pending government shutdown

President Trump and Senate Democrat leader Charles E. Schumer on Friday began the finger-pointing about who will get the blame for a government shutdown at midnight.

“Now it’s up to the Democrats as to whether or not we have a shutdown tonight,” Mr. Trump said at a meeting with Senate Republicans.

On the Senate floor, Mr. Schumer said Mr. Trump would “own” the shutdown after calling for it at least 25 times.

He recalled that Mr. Trump said he would be “proud” to shut down the government.
