REPORT: Sarah Sanders, other Republicans slam Democrats for ‘partying on the beach’ amid shutdown

FOXNEWS.COM:

Republican leaders slammed Democrats on Sunday following reports that around 30 Democratic members of Congress traveled to Puerto Rico this weekend to meet with lobbyists and see a special performance of the hit Broadway show “Hamilton.”

While the Democrats also planned on attending the Congressional Hispanic Caucus BOLD PAC gathering in San Juan and met with Puerto Rican officials to discuss ongoing cleanup efforts from Hurricane Maria, Republicans were angered over images of their Democratic colleagues enjoying the island’s beaches as the partial government shutdown entered its third week.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Democrats in Congress are so alarmed about federal workers not getting paid they’re partying on the beach instead of negotiating a compromise to reopen the government and secure the border,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted Sunday morning.

GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel also blasted the Democrats for taking off to Puerto Rico, tweeting, “While [President Trump] is in DC working to resolve the government shutdown and secure our border, Democrats are hitting the beach and partying with lobbyists.”

President Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr, tweeted, “And of course no one says anything. I’m not even in government and I’d get killed in the press if I was on vacation right now. Why won’t they cover their democrat buddies lobbyist sponsored vacation in the islands???”

President Trump himself has lambasted Democrats for taking the trip in multiple tweets. On Saturday he wrote, “We have a massive Humanitarian Crisis at our Southern Border. We will be out for a long time unless the Democrats come back from their “vacations” and get back to work. I am in the White House ready to sign!”

Sunday, the president pounced again, writing, “I’m in the White House, waiting. The Democrats are everywhere but Washington as people await their pay. They are having fun and not even talking!”

Monday morning, Trump tweeted, “Dems in Puerto Rico as Shutdown hits day 24.”
