Trump will shutdown Federal Government, if border wall is not funded

by Joseph Weber
August 23, 2017

President Trump on Tuesday said that he is prepared to shut down the government if congressional lawmakers don’t present a spending bill that will pay for a U.S.-Mexico border wall.

“Believe me, if we have to close down our government, we’re building that wall,” Trump said at a campaign rally in Phoenix, where the crowd responded: “Build that wall. Build that wall. Build that wall.”

The Republican-controlled Congress has yet to pass a spending resolution to keep the government fully operational past Sept. 30.

And members will have just a few weeks after returning from August recess to complete the task and avoid a politically unpopular shutdown.

    I suggest that the opposition to “The Wall” had better think about supporting the movement unless they want their kids to be victims of Mexican drugs which could be prevented with a more secure border.

  • Roy Fredrichsen says:

    THE WALL – How else do we stop all the illegals from “scaling the fence” or stop the flow of illegal drugs that kills many Americans daily How many illegals do we stop from murdering our children due to “Sanctuary cities?

  • Pete Bundy says:

    Every time this “shutdown” happens non essential people working for the government get a paid vacation. Congress controls the purse strings and they-the republicans-have had eight years to set funding aside for the wall, people have been screaming for the wall so no more excuses. Build the wall. Those government employees that are non essential can find employment elsewhere.

  • dmttbt says:

    Our government does not want to shut down because that is where they live and steal a fortune. They certainly don’t want the wall to be built or they would have done it before now. We can secure that area with concertina wire and high voltage and claymore mines on motion detectors. Don’t tell me we can’t afford it or can’t do it because we can. We have drones and all types of sophisticated equipment to control that area.

  • Larry says:

    Shut down these projects which make congress rich at the expense of the American people.

  • Bob says:

    Yep, I hope the Scum-Slut shuts the Government down. Just one more nail is his Nazi coffin. It’ll all be over soon, when the Independent Counsel gets those Crooked Tax Returns. Wow, this is really getting to be fun, isn’t it!!!!

  • American Me says:

    I’m with the President.Shut it down if you have to.

  • John Wirts says:

    Please, Please . Please shut it down! Remove all Clinton, and Obama appointees. Submit a list of candidates to replace them, and by executive order hold the Senate in 24/7 session until all candidates are confirmed. If they deny a confirmation, submit a new candidate but keep them in session until all candidates are confirmed. If any Senator leaves before all candidates are confirmed charge them with job abandonment and remove them from office!

  • Not A Farmer says:

    Shut down the Government! Make them pay for the wall AND NO raising the debt ceiling. Make them stop the wasteful spending.

  • itsfun says:

    Drain that swamp, drain that swamp, drain that swamp.

  • PatriotGal says:

    Seems to me that it was the DEMONAZIS who said they would refuse to pass the budget bill if funding for the wall is included. Therefore, I understand that what PRESIDENT Trump is saying is include it in the budget and if the DEMONAZIS shut down the government, so be it. It is not that he would shut it down, but the DEMONAZIS would.

  • Uncle Pat says:

    Please shut it down. Then when ONLY essential employees are allowed to work, we can begin the process of firing ALL non-essential employees. Simple.

    1. PatriotGal says:

      NO back pay for Congress, no anything for Congress while the government is shut down. Seems like a great plan to me. They do less than nothing to earn their $170,000/per yr salaries. Of course, Ryan gets $220,000 plus loads and loads of bennies. So shut them down, too, until they do what we the people demand: BUILD THAT WALL, Repeal OWEbamaTAX, REDUCE TAXES – new tax code for the middle class.

      1. Uncle Pat says:

        I included congress and Paul Ryan within my list of NON-essential employees even though they are elected officials.

        It is my firm belief that two drunks hanging out at a taco stand could “SOLVE” more problems !

        I agree with you 100%.

        Make that tax reform for the entire country and we will be getting somewhere. That has been promised by politicians as long as I can remember and I am 69 years old.

        1. Larry says:

          I’m 76 and agree totally!

          1. Roy Fredrichsen says:

            I’m 82 and tied of all the promises NOT kept.

      3. dmttbt says:

        The politicians are subsidized on their health care because they have decided to be recognized as independent contractors.
        There must be something we can get them on like Al Capone and taxes. Surely Al Gore has cheated on all the money he has made off carbon bull s hit. He is back saying the same BS he was saying before. When he said that within 5 years this or that would happen with the climate change and it didn’t, not at all he should have been arrested for mass fraud.

        1. ARJAY says:

          A FEDERAL crime, as he has crossed state lines to commit his FRAUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      4. ARJAY says:

        And NO back pay for the time off for the federal employees. If the federal employees want to be paid, they have to use vacation time if they have any vacation time left. Otherwise they are SOOL Sxxx out of luck..

  • Jose says:

    If there is a government shut down, let all the politicians be the first to go without a payday. If “We, the people” (supposeably the politicians are part of this too), must go without a payday so must the politicians. Bet that their “direct deposit” will not stop just because it stops for the rest of us.

    1. ARJAY says:

      No BACK PAY for ANYONE of them!!.

  • Glenn says:

    Our Representatives look the other way to stop the spending madness and the complete abuse of the National Debt. The Representatives and most of the people of this country do not fathom the problem of all the spending and borrowing that continues. Every person now owes the government $60k of which we borrow $1M every 60 seconds. So Close the government down and then force the government to take control of the spending.

  • dmttbt says:

    The democrats and republicans alike want the border to stay open no matter what the laws say or the constitution or the majority of the people in the united states and it is passed time they listened. Short of a revolution there has to be a way to make the politicians honor their oath of office. We are tired of all their self serving lies and their criminal activities.

    1. Retired says:

      No budget , stop the pay and health care of Congress and their staff without back pay . You will see a budget real quick .

      1. Kenneth Hadler says:

        And make all members of Congress get coverage under Obamacare!

        1. Retired says:

          Including their staff .

  • Ramon1710 . says:

    Good. Can’t count on Congress for such action. The Republicans wet themselves every time the press goes into their government shutdown horror act, and then the RINOs cave to every debt increasing idea the demoncrats propose.

    “There is zero chance — no chance — We are going to act fiscally responsible,” McConnell said.
    “Spend, spend, spend,” he sang while skipping merrily off into the distance.

    You can bet that in the even of a shutdown, unlike Monkey, the President’s first acts will not be to put blockades up and hire guards to keep people away from our national parks and veteran memorials. “We were told to make the shutdown as inconvenient as possible,” stated one park ranger.

    1. dmttbt says:

      In the big picture I couldn’t give a sh t less if they close the national parks. That is not the important thing to me. Stop the pay of all the politicians and they would not care because that is not the bulk of their income. We will not find the bulk of their income because we have them investigate themselves. If Hillary isn’t a good enough example I don’t know what it will take. Politicians are not going to buck the crime families.
