TRUMP ULTIMATUM: Fund Wall or Southern Border Shuts Down – Will Cut Central American Aid

President Trump gave an ultimatum Friday — Fund the border wall or the southern border will be shut down entirely and Central American aid will be cut off.

The President fired off a tweetstorm Friday demanding border wall funding and slammed NAFTA.

President Trump said the US will be cutting off aid to Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.

partial government shutdown began last weekend after President Trump rejected a stopgap funding bill that was approved in both the Senate and the House, but didn’t include the $5 billion for border wall funding.

 

The House reworked the bill adding $5 billion in border wall funding which passed in a 215-185 vote.

The Senate, however, refused to pass the bill after it got bounced back from the House, resulting in a Schumer shutdown.

VOTE NOW: Should Trump cut foreign aid to countries who send migrants?

House Democrats are reportedly quietly plotting ways to reopen the government while stiffing President Trump every penny on border wall funding as soon as they regain power next week.
