Author and Hollywood manufacturer Stephen King has accused President Donald Trump of “holding federal workers captive” over his “animal job” of building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The federal government is still experiencing a partial shutdown after Congress stopped working to approve funding for the border wall, Trump’s signature project pledge.
” Trump is generally holding federal employees captives for his pet task,” Stephen King wrote on Twitter.

Earlier on in the week, King likewise complained about how the shutdown meant the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) was unable to forecast the movement and severity of the Red Tide approaching Florida’s west coast.
” More red tide threatening Florid’s West coast, but thanks to the Trump Shutdown, NOAA can not predict where it will go or how bad it will be,” he wrote on Friday. “Thanks, dipshit.”

The 71-year-old scary author is understood for his repetitive outbursts versus Donald Trump and Republican political leaders, having actually denounced the former as “rotten to the core.” Last January, King was required to ask forgiveness after commemorating a fatal train crash bring senior Republican politicians as a form of “karma.”
A trainload of Republicans on their way to an expensive retreat struck a trash truck. My pal Russ calls that karma.

On Christmas Eve, King even pleaded with legislators to “put partisanship” and eliminate Trump from workplace, describing him as a “train wreck” pulling the country towards disaster.
Inform your legislators and pals who are Trump supporters that it’s time to put partisanship aside. Trump is a train wreck, and the train he’s pulling is our nation. He has to be eliminated from workplace.
