The #SchumerShutdown Backfired

Greenwood Village, CO – Colorado Republican Chairman Jeff Hays issued the following statement on how the #SchumerShutdown affected the way Americans view President Trump:

“Senator Chuck Schumer and his caucus miscalculated badly. Their government shutdown has made Americans even more grateful for President Trump, because it’s clearer than ever what obstructionists he’s had to overcome in order to achieve results for the American people. Despite the Democrats’ best efforts to stop him, President Trump accomplished extraordinary successes during his first year in office, including the appointment of Colorado’s very own Justice Neil Gorsuch and passage of the historic Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. These would have been momentous accomplishments under any circumstances, but they’re especially momentous considering the ferocity of the opposition Republicans are facing among Democrats in Washington.”
