WASHINGTON – Former President George W. Bush delivered pizza to his Secret Service detail, who are working without pay due to the partial government shutdown, and called on Washington to put an end to the impasse over funding for a southern border wall.
In a photo posted to his Instagram account, Bush is seen carrying three pies to a group of seven Secret Service personnel. Just behind the 43rd president, several other pizzas were also being carried to the group
Bush said both he and his wife, Laura, were grateful for the men and women who were working to keep them safe but it was time to end the impasse between President Donald Trump and Democrats in Congress.
He thanked both the Secret Service and the “thousands of federal employees who are working hard for our country without a paycheck” and all the citizens who were helping to support these workers.
