(CNN) The particular White House public comment range wasn’t working on Sunday, and people who the number were told it’s the Democrats’ fault.
Callers on Sunday were welcomed by these recorded words:
“Thank you designed for calling the White House. Sadly, we cannot answer your contact today because congressional Democrats are usually holding government funding, including financing for our troops and other national safety priorities, hostage to an unrelated migration debate. Due to this obstruction, the government is certainly shut down. ”
The recording advises callers to send a message to the White House, and then the phone call ends.
Conservatives and Democrats are blaming one another for the government shutdown, which has put non-essential workers on furlough
plus closed national parks and the Smithsonian museums.
