Trump: Government Shutdown Could Last ‘Months or Years’



President Donald J. Trump confirmed Thursday afternoon in a Rose Garden press briefing that the existing partial government shutdown will last as long as it takes to get funding for a border wall.

“I did say that, absolutely I said that. I don’t think it will but I am prepared and I think that I can speak for Republicans in the House and Republicans in the Senate they feel very strongly about having a safe country,” Trump told reporters.

Trump also said that he is considering declaring a national state of emergency over the lack of border wall funding. Porous borders have led to countless crimes committed by illegal aliens that could be avoided altogether if America’s southern border was not wide open.

“President Donald Trump is seriously considering potential options to circumvent Congress, including declaring a national emergency, to reprogram funds from the Department of Defense and elsewhere to help pay for parts of his desired border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, according to multiple sources familiar with the ongoing discussions,” ABC said.

During the press conference, Trump also echoed sentiments of a Tweet sent earlier Thursday, saying that Democrats would be foolish to impeach a President who is doing a “great job.”

“How do you impeach a president who has won perhaps the greatest election of all time, done nothing wrong (no Collusion with Russia, it was the Dems that Colluded), had the most successful first two years of any president, and is the most popular Republican in party history 93%?” Trump said.
