President Donald Trump denied any White House “chaos” over the longest government shutdown ever in a Saturday morning tweet.

Trump, referring to a reporter from the “Amazon Washington Post,” hit back at the notion that he has no plan for the ongoing shutdown.

Trump reiterated that he’s “waiting”for the Democrats to get back to Washington D.C.

Trump said Friday afternoon that he does not intend to declare a national emergency “so fast,” despite how only hours earlier he said that he “can’t imagine any reason” why he shouldn’t declare national emergency to get his wall funding.
