Trump tweets that he’s willing to shut down the government over immigration

Without naming a figure, Trump said in April that he would "have no choice" but to force a government shutdown this fall if he doesn't get the border security money he wants.

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.

"I would have no problem doing a shutdown", the president said during a joint press conference at the White House with Italian prime minister Giuseppe Conte.

Beyond building a wall, the administration also wants to do away with so-called "chain migration" allowing relatives of immigrants to come to the country, and the diversity visa-lottery program, and to move toward what Trump calls a "merit-based" immigration system.

"We need great people coming into our Country", he added.

His comments stand in contrast to his own leaders in the House and Senate who both previously signalled the issue would have to wait until after the midterms.

Democratic lawmakers, led by former state senate president Kevin de Leon, made the sanctuary policies statewide law, sparking a constitutional showdown with the Trump administration, which is playing out in the courts.

"The Republican base is Trump's now".

"I don't think we're going to shut down the government", Stivers said on the ABC News programme This Week.

He also repeated his attacks on immigration law itself, incorrectly asserting that "they want us to hire thousands of judges".

With his record on Russian Federation under scrutiny, President Donald Trump is insisting that the United States will not lift sanctions against Moscow.

Yes. On Sunday, he fired off a flare on Twitter about a possible government shutdown.

"I don't think we're going to shut down the government".

Congress ultimately passed a spending bill in March that funded the government through September.

Despite Trump's threat, some Republican lawmakers doubted the government would be forced to shut down.

What did President Trump say?

"Border security includes the wall, but it includes many other things", Trump said.

The Trump administration, though, has been under enormous pressure for its policy of separating immigrant families at the border and then, in some cases, failing to reunite them-or to even have a clue for how to do so. The Senate would allocate about $1.6 billion.

While congressional GOP leaders have worked over the past week to signal solidarity with Trump on immigration, they also struck notes of caution about the timing of any significant legislative progress.

And that promise is to build a wall on America's southern border with Mexico.

"Trump is taking the exact opposite route", Limbaugh explained. "I would meet with Iran if they wanted to meet", he said.

House Republicans released a spending bill this month that provides $5 billion next year to build Trump's wall, a major boost.
