It’s been more than a month since the federal government shutdown began, the longest in history.
Many, if not all Americans, are beginning to feel its effects in some shape or form.
Workers are going without paychecks, flights are at risk of delay or cancellation, immigrants’ court cases are delayed, some people can’t get loans approved.
Are leaders in Washington feeling any pressure to end this thing? If so, who are Americans blaming?
Washington Post national political reporter Matt Viser says some of President Trump’s own voters are blaming him. Viser spoke with some of those folks in Macomb County — the working class suburban home of the Reagan Democrat, right here in our own backyard, which played an outsized role in electing Trump in 2016.
Viser’s piece on the subject is titled, “Trump voters now blame him for the government shutdown”. He joins Detroit Today with Stephen Henderson to talk about it.
