President Trump Repeats Threat to Shut Down Government or Use Constitutional Powers to Build Wall
President Trump caved to pressure and reopened the US government on Friday following the 36 day partial shutdown.
Trump threatened to shut down the government again in three weeks if a deal is not made to build a border wall. President Trump added that he will use constitutional powers to build the wall if he has to.
Trump tweeted this out on Friday.
I wish people would read or listen to my words on the Border Wall. This was in no way a concession. It was taking care of millions of people who were getting badly hurt by the Shutdown with the understanding that in 21 days, if no deal is done, it’s off to the races!

And the president posted his long-winded statement again after he caved and opened the government.
