On Tuesday Trump Threatened to Shut Down Gov't in Oval Office Feud with Pelosi, Schumer if Congress did not fund his wall.

Despite asking for wall funding, Trump still insists"Mexico will pay for it."

Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer responded:

"Well, Mr. President, if you say Mexico is going to pay for the wall through NAFTA, which it certainly won't, I guess we don't have to. Let's fund the government."

Schumer added, "If the president really believes what he tweeted this morning that his new NAFTA would pay for the wall, he wouldn't be threatening to shut down the government unless American taxpayers pay for the wall. He can't have it both ways."

Addendum
