Trump’s Latest Demand May Result In Another Shutdown
It looks like President Trump is tired of all the talk from the left without action. The President addressed the press in Ohio letting the world know just where he stands.
Now that we are approaching the deadline for government funding, again, Trump discusses the issue he’s had with Democrats blocking funds to build the wall. If Democrats don’t bend we could see another government shutdown.
According to ABC News, President Trump railed against the nation’s immigration laws and suggested Saturday that a government shutdown may be necessary to secure his long-promised border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
“We’re going to get the wall, even if we have to think about closing up the country for a little while,” Trump said during an event billed as a tax reform roundtable in Cleveland. “We’re going to get the wall. We have no choice.”
The president has previously threatened a shutdown over the border wall issue, floating the idea as recently as a week ago.
“We may have to close up our country to get this straight, because we either have a country or we don’t,” Mr Trump said yesterday. “And you can’t allow people to pour into our country the way they’re doing.”
We are building a wall on the southern border, which is absolutely necessary,” he said.
“Let me be very clear to Democrats in Congress who oppose a border wall and stand in the way of border security,” he added. “You are putting all of Americans’ safety at risk.”
As Reported By The Washington Examiner:
The House has passed legislation that would provide $1.6 billion in funding to begin work on the wall Trump has promised for more than a year now, but it’s not clear that language will survive House-Senate negotiations. Trump’s threat Tuesday night could prompt Republicans to push for its inclusion, but at the cost of losing votes from Democrats and possibly some Republicans.
