#DonaldTrumpsTheTypeofGuy trends amid government shutdown
A month into the US government shutdown, US President Donald Trump has become the center of Twitter banter as frustration grows in the country.
#DonaldTrumpsTheTypeofGuy trended on Twitter as the President continues to prolong what is now the longest government shutdown in US history, going into its 34th day.
Trump on Twitter insisted that the government shutdown will continue until he gets $5.7bn funding to build to the Mexico border wall.
BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL! This is the new theme, for two years until the Wall is finished (under construction now), of the Republican Party. Use it and pray!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 23, 2019
The ongoing government shutdown has left 800,000 employees without pay, according to the BBC.
The public took to Twitter to express their frustration with a pinch of banter.

#DonaldTrumpsTheTypeOfGuy who could have retired in luxury and spent this time relaxing with his grandchildren, but he chooses to endure endless daily savage attacks because he cares that much about America and all the people that Washington forgot about.— Brandon Straka (The Unsilent Minority) (@usminority) January 24, 2019
