Trump said Ross "should have said it differently," then went on to say that grocery stores and banks will simply "work along" with furloughed workers.
"They know the people, they've been dealing with them for years," said Donald Trump.

Trump was asked about Ross's remarks this morning. Trump says that banks and grocery stores will "work along" with federal employees because they "know the people."

Trump's fantasy of regular person life is so corny and so baffling. He thinks we all live in small towns and shop at mom and pop grocery stores that are also somehow surrounded by MS-13 "invaders" and there's carnage in the streets. Pick a lane/collapse on a toilet. pic.twitter.com/RmmL00Qesg
