“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!” Trump tweeted Sunday.
“They don’t want the wall,” Trump said. “But we’re going to get the wall, even if we have to think about closing up the country for a while.”
“I said to Congress, I will never sign another bill like this again,” Trump said in March.
Both Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and McConnell met with Trump last week to discuss funding the government.
