US President Donald Trump faces tough choice over border wall threats

US President Donald Trump faces tough choice over border wall threats

President Trump declared that Mexico would pay for his promised border wall on Sunday. Congress must agree to an overall funding bill that Trump signs into law by September 30 or the government will shut down, according to CNBC.

If Congress does push through a funding package without money for the wall, Trump could decide against signing the measure, forcing a shutdown. She tweeted that the email's objective was to provide reporters with "research on Trump's lies" and noted that DNC chair Tom Perez earlier this month said a massive border wall along the southern border of the United States is "ludicrous" and a waste of tax dollars.

Wall Street suffered slightly as a result of President Trump's words, with stocks heading downwards, reversing some previous gains.

Trump's shutdown threat is just the latest headache for the Republicans, who are already scrambling to mend deep internal divisions among rank-and-file members, manage disintegrating relations between Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and contain the fallout from the president's equivocating response to the deadly violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., earlier this month.

One of Trump's principle campaign promises was to build a wall at the southern border and have Mexico pay for it, CNN reported. "Secure borders are vital to natl security - Congress shld fund border wall in govt funding legislation this fall - time to keep our promise, " he tweeted Tuesday. Trump asked on Twitter.

The House has passed a spending bill with funding for the border wall, but it faces an uncertain future in the Senate.

"It's only natural the president would have a discussion with administration lawyers about legal matters", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders recently told reporters. Flake questioned the wisdom of constructing a wall in a landscape that includes flat desert, rolling hills, canyons, mountains and waterways - all of which present unique challenges in securing the border.

"Threatening to shut down the gov't for a campaign promise and a wall we don't need is irresponsible and reckless, " Representative Bennie Thompson of MS, the top Democrat on the House Homeland Security Committee, tweeted from an account representing the panel's Democrats. His threats to shut down the government and potentially terminate the Nafta trade agreement with Canada and Mexico have added even more uncertainty to the political situation in the US.
