This is a fake quote made up by people on the left. Trump did criticize Obama's leadership during a government shutdown, but this quote is fiction, and anyone using it is not telling the truth.
From Politifact (a left wing website):
"This was supposedly said during the 2013 government shutdown during the Obama administration.
We couldn’t find that exact quote from Trump, in a tweet or otherwise"
Our current shutdown is because Trump wants 5 Billion for a border barrier, and democrats in the Senate won't agree to that under any condition. A bill to fund the border barrier for about 5 Billion passed in the House of Representatives, and Trump would sign the bill, but democrats in the Senate won't accept any deal to fund the wall (not even reallocating funds that have already been approved for other uses). The republicans in the Senate also have indicated they won't use the "nuclear option" to keep the government open and fund part of the wall.
The amount in question (5 billion) is about 0.13% of the federal budget (spent) in 2017, or 1.5% of how much we under-spent the proposed budget in 2017.
