THE BRONX -

Bronx-native Cardi B is weighing in on the government shutdown.

The popular rapper posted a video on Instagram blasting President Donald Trump for ordering federal employees to go back to work without getting paid and says we should all be concerned.

She goes on to say that she feels bad for federal workers.  

As News 12 has reported, the government has been shut down for nearly four weeks.  

As for the employees currently working without pay, the president has signed a bill to pay furloughed workers retroactively.  

Federal employees who aren't working during the shutdown are eligible to claim unemployment, according to the Labor Department.
