President Trump said Monday that he wouldn't flinch from shutting down the government over border wall funding, saying the years of talk about border security have gotten nowhere.
"I would be willing to "shut down" the government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall!"
Trump stuck to broad strokes as he warned he is willing to shut down the government if Congress does not take action, saying he would "always leave room for negotiation" and offering no specific funding threshold or legislative marker.
"Trump's border wall does nothing to promote San Diego's robust economy and our positive worldwide ties with Mexico", Council President Pro Tem Barbara Bry, a Democrat, said in a statement.
Trump's latest shutdown threat comes after a tweet earlier Tuesday in which he seized on news reports of a higher murder rate in Mexico than previously reported to bolster his demands for border wall funding and other immigration measures.

Mr. Trump discussed the budget standoff last week in an Oval Office meeting with top aides and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R., Wis). "Even worse are the stories we heard about that bad separations and the bad conditions in which they were held".

David Luiz wants to stay at Chelsea
We play high, with a lot of possession of the ball, in a technical way. On Sarri's philosophy, Luiz claimed, "I love this philosophy". We're doing that every single day.
After the meeting, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told a radio interviewer that a shutdown so close to the November 6 midterm elections won't happen.
Funding for the government runs out at the end of September. We have to end these disgusting catch and release principles where you catch somebody and you take their name and then you release them. McConnell canceled most of the Senate's recess to give senators time to work on the annual spending bills that fund government operations.
Spending bills have appropriated funds to replace existing walls or barriers, something Trump has tried to promote to his supporters as signs of progress.
