President Trump’s businesses and the federal government have one big thing in common: he’s forced them to shut down.

Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-PA) is calling President Trump for running the federal government like one of his Trump businesses by shutting it down. Scanlon says Trump is holding the government and 800,000 workers who are going without pay hostage to live up to a campaign promise. No, not the Trump campaign promise to build the wall and have Mexico pay for it, but the one that he will run the government like one of his businesses. Scanlon lists Trump's various business ventures that are now defunct: Trump University, Trump Airlines, Trump Casino, Trump Steaks, Trump Vodka, Trump Games, Trump Mortgage, Trump Magazine. Scanlon reminds Trump that you can't run the federal government like a business because 'the federal government does not stiff our employees and our contractors, many of whom are veterans.'
