President Trump has hit out at Democrats for leaving Washington and taking vacations while he awaits their cooperation on reopening the government.

Trump fired off a tweet Sunday, noting that “The Democrats are everywhere but Washington as people await their pay.”

The President was referring to the fact that some congressional Democrats spent the weekend in Puerto Rico, while the shutdown became the longest on record.

Those priorities included seeing the Broadway show Hamilton and attending at least three parties.

Sen. Bob Menendez was spotted on the beach, discussing his own priorities:

But I’d like to see them act responsibly, and they’re not acting responsibly, and that’s it. I’m in the White House, and most of them are in different locations. They’re watching a certain musical in a very nice location.”

Trump followed up the tweet Monday, again asserting that the shutdown could be ended within 15 minutes:
