President Trump took to Twitter Saturday to criticize media reports on the partial government shutdown that said there was chaos in the White House over the impasse between Trump and House Democrats on his $5 billion funding demand for a border wall.

The President’s criticism of a “fake reporter” from the “Amazon Washington Post” appears to be referencing the Post’s White House Bureau Chief Philip Rucker who called the White House “chaotic” and claimed there was no clear plan to end the shutdown on the “Today” show early Saturday.

President Trump also tweeted that he was in the White House ready to act and sign funding legislation to end the longest government shutdown in history if Democrats would only come back from their "vacations."

House Democrats have refused to compromise on funding for the border wall calling it ineffective and even "immoral" and the president will not sign government funding legislation that does not fund the wall as the shutdown reaches its 22nd day.
