Trump Threatens To Continue With Govt Shutdown For Years

UNITED STATES

US President Donald Trump  “threatened” to continue with the ongoing, two-week-old partial government shutdown for years if the Congress refused to support funding for a wall along the Mexico border.

Following a meeting with the Congressional leaders at the White House, ending in a stalemate, Trump said he may call a national emergency to build a border wall which, he argues, is essential to stop the illegal immigrants from entering the United States.
