(Worthy News) - President Trump said Tuesday he would be “proud” to shut the government down unless he gets a massive infusion of cash to build his border wall, and suggested if Congress doesn’t concede, he would use the military to erect more fencing anyway.
Democrats on Capitol Hill said the president would be creating a constitutional crisis if he tries to rope the Pentagon into his wall plans over the objection of Congress — and countered with red lines of their own, saying they won’t pony up a single new dollar for Trump-style border security.
The impasse, and a host of other business that’s piled up in recent days, now threaten Congress’s final vacation of the year, as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he’s prepared to keep his troops in town between Christmas and New Year’s if they can’t get their work done before then.
