Sen. Warner says in the event of another funding disputes, the only parts of government that should be shut down are Congress and the White House. Warner calls air traffic controllers “heroes,” says Trump has “so little empathy” and a “slash-and-burn mentality” towards government workers.

Sen. Kaine asks why Trump is abusing federal workers, why aren’t they getting paid right now, why “under any stretch of the imagination” would you want “front-line safety” workers worried about a mortgage payment they might miss, etc.? “Why is our country treating our people like this?” “President Trump can end this immediately.” Trump’s “just damaging a whole lot of other people because he can’t get his way.”
