Trump: I Would Be Willing to ‘Shut Down’ Government Over Border Security

Back in February, Trump said that he'd "love to see a shutdown" if the government did not address border security. Trump tweeted. "Must get rid of Lottery, Catch & Release etc. and finally go to system of Immigration based on MERIT!"

Trump said the two countries, through a "new strategic dialogue", would continue to boost joint security efforts in the Mediterranean and North Africa and would focus on "the urgent need to protect our nations from terrorism and uncontrolled migration".

When asked about the meeting, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Tuesday that he and other Republicans support the president's goals as they try to go through a normal appropriations process "that prevents a big event at the end of the fiscal year".

In the Kentucky radio interview, Mr McConnell did acknowledge that the border funding issue probably would not be resolved until later this year, after the November election. He added that money for the wall was "not a question of if, it's a question of when".

In May, Trump suggested "closing up the country for a while" if he did not get his wall.

Excitement High as Zimbabwe Holds First Post-Mugabe Election
A recent Afrobarometer survey of 2,400 people put Mnangagwa on 40 per cent and Chamisa on 37 per cent, with 20 per cent undecided. I can't vote for those who've caused me to be in this situation.

But in response to a question about whether his request for $25 billion for his proposed border wall is a "red line" in talks with Congress, Trump said he would "always leave room open for negotiation".

Matthew Albence, an executive associate director at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, told the lawmakers that "the best way to describe" conditions at family detention centers was "like a summer camp". Trump dropped the policy more than a month ago under fire from Democrats and Republicans alike. The House adjourned for five weeks on Thursday while the Senate will only take one week off in August. The Senate remains in session and is set to go on break the week of August 6 before returning for the rest of the month.

Instead, the GOP leader says the Senate would be finishing up a package of budget bills this week as Congress makes progress toward funding the government for the new fiscal year that begins October 1.

Congress ultimately passed a spending bill in March that funded the government through September.

Trump would be taking a political risk if he does allow most government functions to lapse on October 1 - the first day of the new budget year - roughly a month before the November 6 elections, when Republican control of both the House and Senate is at stake. "I think it'd be bad politics for the Republican Party to shut the government down".

The auto that hit him was being driven by a friend. and he was planning to jump out of the way but slipped on a patch of oil. The challenge involves getting out of a moving vehicle and dancing alongside it to the song " In my feelings " by Drake .

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, defended the officials and said Congress was also to blame for the administration's problems with handling the separated families.

Rep. Steve Stivers, R-Ohio, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, the campaign arm for GOP House candidates, agreed.

Both Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and McConnell met with Trump last week to discuss funding the government.

"They don't want the wall". They have the strength to derail legislation in the closely divided Senate. The House Appropriations Committee Homeland Security Bill contains $5 billion for "physical barriers and associated technology on the southern border". No. 2 Senate Democratic leader Richard Durbin of IL said Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen should resign and that someone "has to accept responsibility" for policies that show "the extremes this administration will go to".

Paul Manafort Earned $60 Million as a Consultant in Ukraine, Says Mueller
Trump reacted to Manafort's jailing in June by describing it as "very unfair". "Didn't know Manafort was the head of the Mob". The charges largely predate the five months Mr Manafort worked on the Trump team in 2016, some of them as campaign chairman.
