Trump, who made the comment on Twitter, wrote in a second tweet that Democrats could "end the Shutdown in 15 minutes" and claimed that they are to blame for the funding lapse, which was sparked by demands that legislation funding the government include more than $5 billion for his long-promised border wall. 

"I’ve been waiting all weekend. Democrats must get to work now. Border must be secured!" he tweeted.

Over the weekend, the shutdown became the longest in history, passing the previous record of a 21-day shutdown that occurred during the Clinton administration.
