President Trump on Tuesday reiterated he would not budge on his demand to fund a wall along the southern border, dimming prospects for an imminent solution to a prolonged partial government shutdown.
“Without a Wall our Country can never have Border or National Security,” Trump said in a tweet, insisting that a wall or steel barrier would cut crime rates.
“The Dems know this but want to play political games,” he added. “Must finally be done correctly. No Cave!”
The president earlier Tuesday morning issued a tweet accusing the Democrats of “playing politics” over the wall after the subject was discussed on “Fox & Friends.”
