New Poll Shows Whom Americans Blame for Potential US Government Shutdown
Dec 18, 2018, 01:59
White House senior adviser Stephen Millersaid Sunday the administration would do "whatever is necessary to build the border wall", including shutting down the government, even as polling suggests most Americans want Trump to compromise with Congress on the issue. A partial shutdown that could occur at midnight Friday risks disrupting government operations and leaving hundreds of thousands of federal employees furloughed or working without pay over the holiday season.

At a meeting in the White House last week, Trump told Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, that he was willing to shut down the government if he doesn't get the border wall funding.
Under a precedent-setting memorandum by Reagan budget chief David Stockman, federal workers are exempted from furloughs if their jobs are national security-related or if they perform essential activities that "protect life and property". "Anytime you hear a Democrat saying that you can have good Border Security without a Wall, write them off as just another politician following the party line, ' he wrote on Twitter Monday, reposting a tweet that had earlier misspelt "border" as "boarder".
But this could be the president's last chance to fully fund his wall.
