Trump's 100th day as president may coincide with government shutdown

President Trump will mark his 100th day in office on April 29. That could also be the day the government partially shuts down, should lawmakers not be able to come to a consensus on the 2017 budget resolution.

By April 28, Congress will have to pass the spending bill to fund the government for the remaining part of fiscal year that ends in September, notes Vox.

On Monday, Mike Allen of Axios reported, "A top Republican with close ties to the White House tells me that after the GOP failure on healthcare, a government shutdown — looming when a continuing resolution runs out April 28 — is 'more likely than not...Wall Street is not expecting a shutdown and the markets are unprepared.'"

The last time government operations were suspended was in 2013, but that shutdown was an act of opposition spearheaded by GOP lawmakers who opposed President Obama's stance on immigration, notes Salon.

This time around, causes would include the lack of agreement among GOP factions.

Whit Ayres, a Republican poll taker, told the Associated Press recently, "There are some folks in the Republican House caucus who have yet to make the pivot from complaining to governing. And this is a White House controlled by a politician who is not really trying to lead a party."

Getting past that issue would require the support of a number of Democrats, but it seems unlikely any will be given.

Just last week, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer noted that the party would not support, "poison pill riders such as defunding Planned Parenthood, building a border wall, or starting a deportation force."
