President Trump Threatens to ‘Shut down’ US Government if Democrats Don’t Vote for Border Wall

U.S. President Donald Trump said he’s “willing to” shut down the government if he doesn’t get the votes he needs on border security.

“I would be willing to ‘shut down’ government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall!” he wrote Sunday morning on Twitter.

“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!”

Typically government shutdowns occur when Congress fails to pass a spending bill for the year; in January the government shut down when Democrats and Republicans failed to reach a deal on how to handle immigration.
