Trump threatens to shut down government

Reading Time: 1 minute

Donald Trump has threatened to “shut down” the government unless Congress passes legislation that would fun a wall across the US border with Mexico.

In an early morning tweet, the US president demanded a raft of changes to the country’s immigration laws, and said he wanted “great people” coming into the country.

“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. “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!”

Mr Trump earlier tweeted there were “consequences” when people cross “our border” illegally, “whether they have children or not”.

“Many are just using children for their own sinister purposes,” he continued. “Congress must act on fixing the DUMBEST & WORST immigration laws anywhere in the world! Vote ‘R’.”
