Trump Says Government Shut Down on October 1st if Border Wall is Blocked

During his Arizona rally on Tuesday, President Trump threatened that unless the bill to build a border wall on the US/Mexico border goes through that the government will be shut down.
HIs speech was met with rapturous applause and attendees were thrilled by the prospect of the President completing one of his main campaign promises.
And it’s about time, too. The Democrats (and many Republicans) have been pushing back against the border wall project since it was first proposed, but what are they really protesting?
When Bill Clinton was President, he spent $50 billion on 14 miles of a wall at the Tijuana crossing. Who complained? Only the people who said that the wall was forcing illegal immigrants to take a more dangerous route leaving them open to risk.
So they authorized $50 billion, they authorized an actual wall, what are they protesting now? Clearly, they are protesting neither the wall nor the money involved, but the President himself! Well, bad News! He was elected and he has a mandate from the American people to build a wall to protect America’s borders.
Let’s support the shutdown if they try and block our safety!

President Trump on Tuesday threatened to shut down the government, if necessary, to make sure his proposed wall at the Mexican border is approved and funded by lawmakers.
“Build that wall. Now the obstructionist Democrats would like us not to do it, but believe me if we have to close down our government, we’re building that wall,” Trump said Tuesday during a rally in Phoenix.

Funding for Trump’s proposed border wall, a promise that was at the center of his 2016 presidential bid, is poised to be the center of debate this fall as Congress negotiates a new government funding bill.
If a new bill is not passed, the government will shut down on Oct. 1.
Democrats, however, are staunchly opposed to funding for the wall, setting up a challenge and tense negotiations over the government’s funding.
The Department of Homeland Security accepted designs for the wall earlier this year. Vendors were instructed that the wall should be at least 18 feet high, have features to prevent climbing over and tunneling beneath the structure, and to make the designs “aesthetically pleasing” on the U.S. side.
