Trump: Shut Down Remains Because Democrats Refuse to Approve Border Security

‘Hopefully Democrat lawmakers will step forward to do what is right for our country and what’s right for our country is border security at the strongest level’


TRUMP: “The federal government remains shut down because congressional Democrats refuse to approve border security. We’re going to have border security. It’s going to be tight, it’s going to be strong. We’re going let people into our country gladly, but they're going to come in legally, that includes for the farmers who need help and for others, but we are going to have powerful, strong border security.”
