Trump: I May Shut Down Government to Get Funding for Border Security


President Trump on Saturday suggested he’d be willing to shut down the government in September if Congress fails to approve his funding demands for border security.

“We have to have borders, and we have to have them fast,” he told a crowd of supporters in Washington, Michigan. “We got 1.6 billion [for the wall]. We come up again on September 28th, and if we don’t get border security, we’ll have no choice. We’ll close down the country because we need border security,” he said, referring to the government appropriations deadline at the end of the fiscal year.

At campaign rallies, he vowed that “Mexico will pay for the wall.” Read more at CNN.




  1. So called “shutting down the government” is another fake term: all the courts and law enforcement continue to operate, the military and intelligence agencies contiue to defend the US, social security checks continue to be cut – the only ones to shut down are the numerous parasitic alphabet bureaucratic agencies that don’t do anything good for society anyway. So unless you are a government contractor for something like EPA, you have nothing to worry about.
