President Donald Trump on Thursday stood by his threat to shut down the government over funding for his border wall.
“Any measure that funds the government must include border security — has to,” Trump said at a signing ceremony for the farm bill, adding: “We have no choice.”
Before moving on, Trump referred to congressional Republican leadership: “We’ll be working on that — Mitch and Paul and Kevin and everybody — and we’ll see what we can do. But hopefully that’ll all come together.”
