Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding the newly released Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report detailing the extensive economic damage caused by the Trump Shutdown:

“As the dust settles from the Trump Shutdown, it is clear as day that the president’s temper tantrum caused serious and lasting damage to our nation’s economy. If President Trump didn’t appreciate the error of his ways after seeing the human suffering his needless shutdown caused, maybe the extensive economic damage he inflicted will set the president straight: No more Trump Shutdowns.”
