Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer warned Tuesday in front of the White House that there will be a government shutdown if President Donald Trump refuses to budge from his demand for $5 billion of wall funding. He spoke after the tense meeting with President Trump.
The bottom line is simple. The President made clear that he wants a shutdown. His position, if he sticks to his position for a $5 billion wall, he will get no wall and he will get a shutdown. The bottom line is very, very simple. That is, we want border security. We offered him border security. But Americans know that the wall, not paid for by Mexico anymore, is not the way to border security.
Schumer insisted that Democrats "have offered" border security funding and warned of what he and Pelosi have termed a "Trump shutdown."
"This Trump shutdown, this temper tantrum that he seems to throw, will not get him his wall and will hurt a lot of people," Schumer said.

Do Them, Don
Then shut it down, Chuckyou bitch.
The Great Wall of Trump is the most vital infrastructure we need on a strategic defensive level at this moment.
We will have our wall, by God we must have it !
Bring it on. The midterm election is over. November 2020 is long, long way away. I don’t see a downside to a shutdown at this point.
Fund it with a surcharge. Every dollar provided for illegal aliens in welfare, incarceration, legal assistance and every other costs they hang on American taxpayers releases and equal dollar for the wall. Do that and it gets paid for in two months, probably less.
Fedzilla does NOT shut down.
Note to the uniparty: Make. Our. Day.
Proceed with the shut down then. The essentials will continue and hardly anyone will notice the shut down anyway.
Fund it out of DOD.
Trump is raising $60 Billion a month from tariffs.
Give him Trump $1 billion a month from tariff money to use as much or as little as he needs for incresed border security, the wall and increased customs enforcement.
Schumah bows down to Trump.
Love America, love the wall.
Hate the wall, hate America.
Awesome, schmuck! How can we help facilitate that?
Enemies at the Gate and Enemies Within
Actually the Senate shouldn’t approve any spending bills that don’t have the wall.
Let the Senate shut down the government not Trump. Senate needs to get a backbone.
Trump is playing them bigly! He knows they will get the blame for the shutdown and the majority of the American people are on his side!
GOOD..SHUT IT DOWN!!! Dems need illegals in this country to vote Democrat..we have had enough of this crap..SHUT IT DOWN, either we get the wall or shut down the damn Govt
