Will Trump Shutdown the Government Over His Wall?
President Trump put out the following Tweet today:
"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!"
Do you think the President is bluffing or does he mean business?
I don't think the President is going to shutdown the Government with the mid-term elections coming up in November. Also, the Democrats are in strong solidarity with the opposition to Trump's Wall.
Yes he means business.
Search for Mexican drug cartel murders - images. Not a pretty sight. After viewing you might want to contribute a few bricks for the wall.
Then check out the State Department travel advisory for Mexico. See how many Mexican states are designated as do not travel to - including ones bordering the USA. Some of those have the highest murder rates in the world. Having a open border with them is like locating yor home next to a super-max prison and installing a swinging door.
