President Trump on Tuesday threatened to shut down the federal government if Congress doesn’t present him with a spending bill for the next fiscal year that includes funding for a wall on the southern border.
“The obstructionist Democrats would like us not to do it, but believe me, if we have to close down our government, we’re building that wall,” Trump said at a rally in Phoenix.
Trump reiterated his message that he was elected to help boost national security and keep illegal immigrants out of the country, many of whom he said are dangerous. He noted that he’s met with several families who have lost loved ones due to violence by illegal immigrants.
“I promised these families the deaths of their loved ones will not have been in vain,” he said.
