President Trump Fires a Shot at Democrats, GOP Leaders -Will Shut Down Government If Border Wall Not Funded
President Trump warned Democrats he is willing to shut down the government if border security including the Trump border wall is not included in the upcoming spending bill.
But the Republican president may have to convince Congressional leaders first.
Never-Trump Republican leaders Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters last week they will not fund the Trump Border Wall in the upcoming spending bill.
Ryan and McConnell passed a record $1.3 trillion spending bill in March.
The spending bill funded Planned Parenthood and sanctuary cities but NOT the Trump border wall.
And now the Republican Party leaders are going to stick it to President Trump and his voters once again.
They’re not going to fund the border wall in September.
President Trump tweeted this out on Sunday morning.
I would be willing to “shut down” government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall! Must get rid of Lottery, Catch & Release etc. and finally go to system of Immigration based on MERIT! We need great people coming into our Country!
