USA shutdown: White Home voicemail modified accountable Democrats

USA shutdown: White Home voicemail modified accountable Democrats

"What's hard for us to understand is why we're having a manufactured shutdown when you're having progress in negotiations and you're shutting down the government over an issue that's not in front of you in the actual bill to keep the government afloat", Short said.

The recorded message was set up on the White House comment phone line through which members of the public can call in to share their views.

The US government shutdown started at midnight Friday after the Senate failed to pass federal funding amid divisions over the status of more than 700,000 illegal immigrants.

On Monday's broadcast of CNN's "Wolf", White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah argued that Senate Democrats "blinked" in the government shutdown battle.

Republicans and President Trump want stricter and more expansive immigration changes and funding for a wall on the Mexican border. Democratic senators blocked a bill to extend government funding because of the Trump administration's controversial plan to finish amnesty for Dreamers, undocumented immigrants who were brought to the USA when they were children.

Update: Experts tell Quartz that the White House phone line probably doesn't violate the Hatch Act, but it may contravene the ideals that the law was meant to uphold.

On the other hand, there were Democrats who were angered by the White House's outgoing message because it was an attack on them made with the taxes that they paid.

"They could easily have made a deal but chose to play shutdown politics instead", said Trump.

"U.S. American taxpayers should NOT be paying for a "political message" (addressed to us) coming out of the White House", said Twitter user @animaeme.

Surprised callers shared what they heard after calling the White House on social media.
