The White House on Saturday released photos of President Trump working on the first day of the government shutdown and the one-year anniversary of his inauguration.

The third photo shows the president laughing with various members of his staff, including his daughter Ivanka Trump, adviser Jared Kushner, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, communications director Hope Hicks and legislative affairs director Marc Short. 

The photos have sparked a reaction on social media. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The president was scheduled to travel to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, however, he had to abandon those plans after Senate Republicans and Democrats failed to reach a deal to fund the government. 

The White House said on Friday that 1,056 employees of the Executive Office of the President would be furloughed, while 659, who are considered essential, would report to work on Monday.
