Trump In Tough Spot Over Shutdown


Business Insider reports that the U.S. government shutdown is in day 32. President Donald Trump has continued to demand $5.7 billion for a portion of the long-promised wall along the US-Mexico border. Democrats are not backing down. More and more economists are warning that the shutdown could cause major problems for the US economy. Trump likes to boast about the continued strength of the U.S. economy. If Trump does not find an end to the shutdown that strength could be at risk. But Trump could also face blowback from hardline conservatives if he does not secure funds for the border wall.
