Trump threatens Govt shutdown
Author: indiadmin July 30, 2018
US President Donald Trump said if the promises made by the Congress to fund his border wall were not fulfilled by September,he was willing to shut down the government.
Trump tweeted,” 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!”
If it happens, it would be the third such instance in 2018, after a shutdown in January when the Trump Administration and Congressional Republicans wrestled with Democrats over protection for ‘Dreamers’, a group of young immigrants.
