In the national Park of the Rocky Mountains, the winter service is currently not available. And without cleared roads, it is this time of year is practically impossible to visit the Park. Responsible for the for a week already-running "Shutdown", so the closure of Parts of the US authorities is.

The vacation in his Florida residence, Mar-a-Lago, the President has cancelled due to the precarious situation, he remains on new year's eve in Washington. From there, he is raging with Tweets against the Democrats, and threatening to make the border to Mexico completely dense, he should not get the demanded sum for the border.
