Trump warns he’s ready to shut government again if there will be no wall funding

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Two days after the record partial shutdown ended, the White House made clear Sunday that U.S. President Donald Trump is prepared to shutter the government again without a border money deal from Congress.

The president’s standoff with Democrats on Capitol Hill is far from over and the clock is ticking — the spending bill Trump signed on Friday funds the government agencies that had been shut down for the past 35 days only until Feb. 15.

It’s unclear if the Democrats will budge. Trump seemed girded for battle, sending out a series of online messages that foreshadowed the upcoming fight with lawmakers. “BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!” he tweeted.
