When it gets hard, you know it can get hard sometimes

that’s okay baby only words bleed.

US government shut down again and again and again… This is the third time this year. The trump administration has also been criticized by the media as the most chaotic. Let’s see what happened.

Please LISTEN PATIENTLY. And the question goes to 3 blanks I have blanked in the script below.


US President Donald Trump’s budget director and chief of staff says the partial US government shutdown could continue to January 3, when the new congress convenes and Democrats take over the House of ??? (1 word missing).

“It’s very possible this shutdown will go ??? (1 word missing) the 28th and into the new congress,” Mick Mulvaney said on Fox News Sunday.
“I don’t think things are going to move very quickly here for the next few days” because of the Christmas holiday, added Mulvaney, who serves as director of the Office of Management and Budget and was named acting White House chief of staff 10 days ago.

The US Senate adjourned on Saturday unable to break an impasse over Trump’s demand for more funds for a wall on the border with Mexico that Democrats are unwilling to accept.

Mulvaney said the White House made a “counteroffer” to Democrats on funding for border security that falls between the Democratic offer of $US1.3 billion ($A1.8 billion) and Trump’s demand for $US5 billion.
As part of those talks on Saturday, Vice President Mike Pence offered to drop the demand for $US5 billion for a border wall, substituting instead $US2.1 billion, ABC News reported citing unnamed sources.

Mulvaney sought to shift blame for the partial shutdown to Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic nominee for speaker of the US House of Representatives, saying she might hold up negotiations to ensure she secures the ??? (1 word missing).
“I think she’s in that unfortunate position of being beholden to her left wing to where she cannot be seen as agreeing with the president on anything until after she is Speaker,” Mulvaney said. “If that’s the case, again, there’s a chance we go into the next congress.”

That’s all for today! Don’t forget to comment with your answers below and try to be the lucky first three.
