(Reuters) - White House economic adviser Kevin Hassett said on Thursday that a “really long” government shutdown could be negative for jobs data in the short term.

“If the government were to shut down for a really long period, then there are estimates that could have a negative impact on the jobs numbers in the short term,” Hassett told CNBC in an interview.
