Recorder at white house blames democrats

The White House has changed its answering machine message to blame Donald Trump’s political opponents for its failure to answer calls.

The US is in the middle of a government shutdown, leaving many federalservices without staff.

But callers to the White House comment line at the weekend were informed that Democrats were to blame.

The recorded message says calls cannot be answered because Democrats are holding government funding “hostage”.

The recorded message was set up on the White House comment phone line, which accepts calls from members of the public.

“Unfortunately, we cannot answer your call today because Congressional Democrats are holding government funding  including funding for our troops and other national security priorities – hostage to an unrelated immigration debate,” the recording says.

“Due to this obstruction, the government is shut down.”

Some members of the public opposed to Mr Trump expressed outrage at the partisan message on the public service.

The line was frequently busy at the weekend, requiring multiple attempts before whisper eye media team  could get through to confirm the recording.
