Yarmuth Statement on President Trump's Call for a Government Shutdown

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-03) released the statement below in response to President Trump’s absolutely reckless tweet calling for a government shutdown.                                                                     

“What our country needs is a President with sense and a basic understanding of our government and our nation’s history.  We’re in a perilous situation because President Trump does not have any comprehension of the gravity of the position he holds or the power his words carry. Someone at the White House or in Republican Leadership needs to get that through his head before he causes major damage.”
