US President Donald Trump has urged Democrats to “stop playing games” and “give America the security it deserves”, amid the current partial government closure which has been in place since December 22.

Trump tweeted on Monday “Democrats are kidding themselves (they don’t really believe it!) if they say you can stop Crime, Drugs, Human Trafficking, and Caravans without a Wall or Steel Barrier. Stop playing games and give America the Security it deserves. A Humanitarian Crisis!”

The US President’s judgments come in the wake of a stand-off between Trump and the Congress over USD 5 billion in support for the wall, which has brought to the partial government shutdown.

Democrats have talked out against the wall, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi extending as far as terming the wall a “waste of money” and an “immorality”.

The partial closure has affected around 800,000 federal employees who have been working without pay since the shutdown began in December 2018. This is, in fact, the high-ever shutdown in US history.
