President Trump thanked “patriotic” federal employees Sunday evening as the partial government shutdown entered its fifth week; saying Republicans and Democrats must work together to solve the nation’s escalating border crisis.

“To all of the great people who are working so hard for your Country and not getting paid I say, THANK YOU – YOU ARE GREAT PATRIOTS! We must now work together, after decades of abuse, to finally fix the Humanitarian, Criminal & Drug Crisis at our Border. WE WILL WIN BIG!” Trump tweeted on social media.

The President’s comments come hours after he offered a compromise immigration package to Congressional Democrats; agreeing to extend DACA protections in exchange for $5.7 billion in border wall funding.
