Executive time appears to have started early in the White House on Monday morning, at least judged by the frenzied volume of tweets from Presidential Donald Trump.

Although the speech was supposed to be a platform for Trump to address how the shutdown is affecting the nation's farmers, he used the time to pitch his proposal for Southern border wall funding, over which he is now holding the paychecks of 800,000 federal workers hostage.

"On every front, we are fighting for our great farmers, our ranchers, our growers", he said. "See you in a little while", Trump said in the since-deleted tweet.

"I would like to have known that there was a fix that was going to be done immediately and that he could have told us about it today", IL grain farmer Robert Klemm said at the convention in New Orleans.

"We're doing trade deals that are going to get you so much business, you're not even going to believe it", he said.
