President Donald Trump got into a contentious exchange with ABC News reporter Jon Karl on Wednesday over whether or not the president should sign bills re-opening some government agencies.

Trump accused Karl of engaging in “one-sided reporting” after the reporter suggested the president should re-open some of the government in order to help out government workers who aren’t currently getting paid for their work.

“Do you think I should do that?” Trump asked Karl. “No, do you think I should do that, Jon? I watch your one-sided reporting — do you think I should do that?”

Karl attempted to escape the corner Trump backed him into, but the president wouldn’t let up.

“I’m saying that if you sign that, these workers can start getting paid,” Karl argued.

“So you would do it if you were in my position?”

“I’m not in your position,” Karl muttered.

“If you would do that, you should never be in this position because you would never get anything done — goodbye everyone,” Trump said, silencing Karl and ending the pool spray with reporters.


Trump is meeting with congressional leaders Wednesday in an attempt to negotiate an end to the partial government shutdown, which is now in its third week.

    So glad we have a President that is for “we the people” and doesn’t back down to money, power, and political people that just want to make a name for themselves? How many of these cronies would do what he is doing with no pay and put up with all the abuse, evil mouth people with not kindness, morals or love of anyone but themselves? Look at the immoral Representative for Michigan and her fowl mouth! No apology from her, MoveOn or the Democrats leaders! Is this the morality our country is teaching our children to live by? Sad, sad, nation that can not survive with no morals and I think these sick people want us to fail so we can be like those countries they have come from.

    The wrap around bullying tactics have now been exposed and will no longer work. They’re baffled that someone could actually be immune. They dont know how to deal according to actual constitutional rules. Checkmate!

    I won’t watch any report by John Karl. In my opinion he ranks right up there with James Acosta…They appear to be hateful, snide, biased,and embarrassing. Just shut the hell up. We don’t care what your fake biased reports say.

    Maybe, “WE THE PEOPLE” need to start marching for what we believe in and / or those who can afford it, get together and go to the Southern Boarder and stand in line as to defend our Nation against illegal invaders…

    No more talking enough has been said by both sides, instead declare a National Emergency Crisis and get the military to build the damn wall that is desperate needed to protect the USA from all the diseases they have, MS-13 gang members, terrorist, ISIS, and criminals that don’t get 2 cents about the USA. SHUT THEM DOWN AND BUILD THE DAMN WALL.
