Shutdown Looms as Democrats ‘Dig In’ Against Border Wall Funding

“President Trump and congressional Democrats remain sharply at odds over a spending package as Washington barrels toward a Friday at midnight deadline, leaving some on Capitol Hill increasingly worried that a Christmas government shutdown is in the making,” writes Fox News.

President Trump slammed those opposed to the ‘Border Wall’ on social media Tuesday morning, posting “Illegal immigration costs the United States more than 200 Billion Dollars a year. How was this allowed to happen?”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer refused to budge on his party’s hardline against securing the southern border, saying “So everyone knows the situation: even with a Republican Congress, no threat or temper tantrum will get the president his wall.”
