President Trump announced that he refuses to fall for Paul Ryan’s and Mitch McConnell’s trap. They have already screwed Trump and the American people twice before, and they know that if they could force the vote on the wall until after the election it won’t pass and will do harm to the party. Speaking of the party…there wouldn’t even be a Republican party if President Donald Trump had not been in the race. He brought people to the polls, and he can again. Everywhere he goes, he draws massive crowds. Ryan and McConnell are not against the wall because they think it won’t work. They oppose because they know it will, and it would help President Trump in his battle to do away with establishment Republicans.
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!

President Donald Trump threatened to shut down the government if lawmakers do not fully fund his proposed border wall and enact his immigration priorities.
Trump’s Sunday tweet is likely to spark a high stakes showdown with Democratic lawmakers who have pledged not to give in to his demands. The fight could lead right into the November midterm elections and put immigration as a centerpiece issue in the last stages of the campaign season.
Trump has long been frustrated by lack of effort to fully fund his proposed $25 billion wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. The White House originally tried to enact wall funding and immigration priorities by tying demands to an expiration of DACA. The DACA program allowed hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to remain in the U.S. and work without consequences.
I wrote about this a few days ago, and I said President Trump needs to stand tall and do what’s right. He has been doing that consistently since he took office, so him taking this tough position comes as no surprise. I’m willing to bet we are about to see more Trump winning.
