During a meeting with Republican lawmakers this week, President Trump warned that a government shutdown is possible if Congress fails to provide funding for border security, Federal Times reports.
He told the lawmakers that he is “willing to do anything” to protect the nation’s borders, and that includes shutting down the federal government, the article states about what was said at the Sept. 5 meeting.
Congress has until Sept. 30 to pass a spending bill, and several GOP leaders have already vowed to work out a deal to keep the government open and still protect American security, the report notes
