Trump says 'no problem' shutting government, dismaying GOP

Donald Trump has given Republicans a fresh electoral headache by reiterating his threat to shut down the United States government if Congress fails to provide extra money for border security.

"If they safeguard the. border, preventing the illegal entry of arms. and money from illicit activities into Mexico, there would be an nearly immediate and dramatic drop in murders", said Navarrete.

Pesident Donald Trump is "begging" for Congress to "step up" and fix the nation's "broken" immigration system, and is less concerned about shutting down the federal government before or after the midterm elections in that quest, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday.

Congress must pass a spending bill by the end of September to avert a government shutdown, and Trump on Monday reiterated his demand that immigration reforms, including $25 billion for construction of a wall on US border with Mexico, be included in any spending package.

Once onstage at the Tampa rally, however, Trump again threatened a shutdown, telling a friendly crowd he might be forced to do something "drastic" to force Democrats to sign off on his immigration priorities and desired border wall funding.

Mourinho's position was in stark contrast to England manager Gareth Southgate's much-praised decision to allow Fabian Delph to leave the World Cup finals to be with his wife at the birth of their child.

"We want our border security was at the maximum", - said the American leader. "The whole thing is ridiculous. It's mind boggling to me that anybody would say, 'well, we're going to shut down the government if I don't get my way".

His declaration caught Republican leaders by surprise, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) said they oppose a shutdown.

The president has made no secret of his belief that his hard-line immigration policies boosted him to the Oval Office, and he launched an aggressive push for additional border security measures early this year.

Senate Appropriations Chairman Richard Shelby, R-Ala., said there's been more progress on spending legislation at this point in the process than in years and said Trump "seemed to be on board" in a previous conversation about the committee's progress. Back in February, Trump said that he'd "love to see a shutdown" if the government did not address border security. "They don't agree on doing it before, and I accept their opinion, but I happen to think it would be a good thing to do before", Trump said of his fellow Republicans. When it comes to the actual numbers for border security funding, the House and Senate have not concurred. And the president has yet to signal if the $5 billion that a House spending bill proposes for the border barrier would suffice. This leaves only 11 legislative days on the calendar in which both chambers of Congress are in session and can act to prevent government funding from running out at the end of the day on September 30th.
