     A looming government shutdown is acting as a black cloud that could hang over our nation this weekend. The forecast according to President Trump expects a shutdown beginning on Saturday. If you ask the President, he only has one group to blame...

“Democrats are really looking at something very dangerous for our country. They are looking at shutting down, they want to have illegal immigrants, in many cases people that we don't want in our country. We don’t want to have that, we want to have a great, beautiful, crime-free country.” -Trump speaking to reporters at the White House

     Trump spoke to reporters before a Cabinet meeting and pointed the finger of blame directly at Democrats for their inability to come to terms with increased border security. A handful of Dems want a repair to legislation for individuals that were covered by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Trump canceled that program earlier this year. 

     Basically it comes down to the vote on a bill that would forestall the shutdown. Republicans, although in the majority, still need Democratic votes. This has led the lefties to attempt a hostage hold in order to advance their primary issues (DACA + Childrens Health Insurance Program). That didn't stop congressional democrats from deflecting the blame back to Trump and Republicans. (See tweets below)

     Trump made it clear that he would not change his tune when it comes to immigration reform. 

"The Democrats maybe will want to shut down the country because they want people flowing into our country, and I want people coming into our country but I want to vet those people"

"And I want to vet them very carefully, because we don't want to have radical Islamic terrorism in this country, and we don't want to have crime in this country." ​
