Trump Again Threatens to Shut Down Government ... UPDATE!

UPDATE: Trump Agrees to Delay Fight Over Funding Until After Midterms
President insists Congress must provide money for border wall and enact new curbs on immigration
President Trump renewed a threat to shut down the government unless Congress provides money for a wall at the southern border and enacts new curbs on immigration, reviving a battle he said last month should wait until Republicans gained more solid majorities after the November elections.
“I would be willing to ’shut down’ government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall!” Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter on Sunday. “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!”
The threat adds a new headache for congressional Republican leaders two months before government funding expires on Sept. 30. It also stands as a rebuff to Republicans who have privately pleaded with the president to avoid triggering a shutdown before the mid-term elections. Republican leaders fear their party would be blamed for shutting down the government, costing them votes during a year in which the party risks losing control of the House and is defending a narrow majority of 51 out of 100 seats in the Senate.

TRump doesn't give two sh**s about the political ramifications, meaning the midterms.

He also doesn't give two sh**s about the fact that a large majority of Americans, including REPUBLICANS, favor legal status for Dreamers, as well as the other immigrants who are here.

Trump doesn't give two sh**s about anything but himself, and keeping his racist base happy.
