Donald Trump Says “I’d Love to See a Shutdown” if Congress Can’t Reach Immigration Deal

Donald Trump says “I’d love to see a shutdown” if Congress can’t reach an immigration deal done by Thursday. In other words, he is holding the Dreamers hostage for a border wall be said Mexico would pay for.

Trump said, “We’ll do a shutdown. And it’s worth it for our country. I’d love to see a shutdown if we don’t get this stuff taken care of. So we have to strengthen our borders, not by a little, by a lot.”

According to the pool report, there was some fireworks. Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-VA) clapped back at Trump’s comments to his face during a White House meeting, saying, “We don’t need a government shutdown on this.”

Trump clearly has no clue on how to government. Judging from his multiple corporate bankruptcies, it’s very obvious that he is a lousy negotiator. You will recall he shouldered a lot of the blame for the first shutdown that was on his one-year anniversary since his shitty inauguration.
