The US President Donald trump has a self-interest in blocking the work of the U.S. government, as well as the extension of a forced leave of absence for hundreds of thousands of civil servants in the territory from Alaska to Florida.
A personal opinion expressed by the European human rights activist Alexander Mitts in comments to the correspondent of ГолосUA.
According to experts, the collapse of state institutions in the United States, called “shutdown” (interlinear translation from English – “disable” – Ed.) will demonstrate to the world the principled position of the White House on a range of domestic and international issues. “Trump has put the Congress with a fait accompli: if the highest legislative body in the United States will not allocate additional funds for the construction of the separation wall on the us-Mexican border, the activities of local officials are fashionable will forget – stated, in particular, he said. – Today, there is no doubt that the “shutdown” will be extended indefinitely”.
As explained by A. Mitts, so D. trump intends to consolidate the image of “hard head” that seeks to control all without exception social and political processes in America.
We will remind, before D. trump said that the White House will not Fund the activities of the government as long as Congress does not approve the allocation of $5 billion for the construction of the “wall” against refugees from countries of Central America. At the moment, because of the “shutdown” their work was temporarily stopped the State Department of the United States, NASA, the U.S. Department of justice, as well as the number of divisions of the FBI.
