Trump Calls For Country Shutdown In September
While President Donald Trump has said many questionable things along the way of his slightly more than 100 days in office, this morning’s tweets are among some of the most shocking that have been said to date.
Specifically, Trump tweeted that, “The reason for the plan negotiated between the Republicans and Democrats is that we need 60 votes in the Senate which are not there! We either elect more Republican Senators in 2018 or change the rules now to 51%.”
“Our country needs a good ‘shutdown’ in September to fix mess!” he alarmingly added.
This barrage of tweets has to do with a congressional funding agreement for the Government until September that was reached Sunday- where the Democrats were victorious. Amongst other things in the agreement, a key point was that there was not Government funding for the wall Trump wants to build on the US/Mexican border.
Based on the tweets, it seems that if Trump doesn’t start getting his way, he is threatening to shutdown the Government. To quote a Trump-ism this truly would be “unpresidented.”
