Trump Threat To Shutdown Government Real
President Trump’s threat to shutdown the federal government if funding for the Mexican border wall doesn’t go through is not an idle threat. The wall to keep out illegal immigrants and drugs is something Trump campaigned on and one of his main platforms. The House has already approved funding for border security, but the hold up is in the Senate. Congressman Glenn Grothman has supported the proposal for the wall since Trump’s campaign. Grothman feels this is one time Democrats and particularly Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer should compromise. If the federal government were shut down the president would have discretion to keep funding the government as much as he wants. Grothman doesn’t believe the shutdown would be for very long.
