Trump Will Shut Down Government Over Border Wall Funding

Trump Will Shut Down Government Over Border Wall Funding

Meanwhile, leading auto exporting nations are reportedly planning to meet in the absence of the United States to discuss their response to President Donald Trump's tariff threat on vehicle imports. Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

The president said that Democrats need to get onboard with his immigration agenda, which includes a wall on the U.S. -Mexico border, or risk another government shutdown. "We're the laughingstock of the world".

McConnell's comments on Friday come after Ryan signaled this week that the fight over border wall funding could be pushed until after the September 30 deadline. Only a few weeks after that, Trump said he'd "love" to see another shutdown if the Democrats didn't give in to his immigration demands.

'We must have Border Security, get rid of Chain, Lottery, Catch & Release Sanctuary Cities - go to Merit based Immigration.

However, she criticized Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who last week said in a radio interview that the border issue likely wouldn't be resolved until after the midterms. Ron Johnson appeared Sunday on CBS's Face the Nation with a little pushback: "I certainly don't like playing shutdown politics", he says, per the Hill. "We need great people coming into our Country!"

The President has repeatedly used the threat of shutdown to press his priorities in congressional spending bills.

Trump also wants changes to legal immigration, including scrapping a visa lottery program.

Jerry Brown on Thursday issued emergency proclamations in both Riverside County in the south and Shasta County in the north. With the deaths of Bledsoe and the two young children, the number of people killed in the Carr Fire climbed to five.

Building a border wall was one of the president's early campaign promises and he has been defensive of his immigration stance since his "zero tolerance" policy got criticism from both sides of the aisle.

Democrats and some Republicans have objected to some of the changes Trump seeks.

Both chambers will have short window of working days to approve a spending bill before government funding expires.

"Please understand, there are consequences when people cross our Border illegally, whether they have children or not - and many are just using children for their own sinister purposes", Trump said.

Previous year testing began on prototypes for the proposed Trump wall.

Trump signed a $1.3 trillion spending bill on March that allocated $1.6 billion for the wall, but designated that the funds can't be used on new construction.
