Hyer's Highlights: Trump's Government Shutdown

Trump's Government Shutdown is the first shutdown in US history when the same party has controlled both parts of Congress and the Presidency.

Hyer's Highlights: Trump's Government Shutdown

The failure of the US Senate to pass a new budget has meant that the United States government has literally gone into shutdown.

The Republicans were seeking funding for border security – including 'the wall' – and immigration reforms, as well as increased military spending. The Democrats, on the other hand, in return demanded protection from deportation of more than 700,000 undocumented immigrants who entered the US as children.


This is the first shutdown in US history which has taken place when the same party, in this case Republicans, controls both parts of Congress and the Presidency. The last government shutdown was in 2013, and lasted for 16 days. Back in 2013, the then businessman and 'deal-maker' Donald Trump, interviewed by Fox and Friends at the time, laid the blame for the shutdown with the President, Barack Obama.

New Music We Love: The Chainsmokers become good, Mabel is a star and we snub Timberlake (again)

We take you on a guided tour of the best, the good, and the quite good's of the week

Featured Track: The Chainsmokers – Sick Boy

The thing about The Chainsmokers is that you could walk past them on the street without realising you were passing a Grammy Award-winning act. But, in new single ‘Sick Boy’ the band present a new variation on the sound which is essentially all their other songs (a welcome change) and they sing about narcissism, as if psychoanalysis has been a-miss lately in pop music.
