A few years ago Trump tweeted about the impact of a government shutdown on essential services such as the US Military. Trump said:
“Here’s the truth, the gov't doesn’t shutdown” http://apne.ws/16lbI86 via @AP. All essential services continue. Don't believe lies. Trump Tweet September 23, 2013
That was then...
Now Trump occupies the White House and he sings a different tune. This is now:
“A government shutdown will be devastating to our military ... something the Dems care very little about!” Trump Tweet January 18, 2018.
Whoops, despite being inconsistent the new Trump tweet isn't true. "The military will continue to work — even if the rest of the government won’t." Vox
