PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Oregon Gov. Kate Brown says her husband is sending President Donald Trump a $28 bill after he cleaned garbage-filled bathrooms while visiting a sno-park on Mount Hood that was unstaffed because of the partial government shutdown.
The Oregonian/OregonLive reports Brown announced on Twitter Friday that Dan Little saw bathrooms at a Mount Hood National Forest Sno-Park were “a mess” and decided to spruce them up.
The governor tweeted before-and-after photos, as well as an invoice that reads “To: President Trump.”
Friday marked day 21 of the partial government shutdown, tying the previous longest closure that ended in January 1996.
