Trump Tweets GOP Should Go for Nuclear Option ‘If Stalemate Continues’

On day two of the government shutdown, President Trump is tweeting that if the “stalemate continues,” the GOP Senate should go for the nuclear option:

The vote Friday night did not reach the 60-vote threshold, and negotiations are still underway to resolve this issue.

Yesterday the Trump campaign put out an ad saying
Democrats “who stand in our way [on immigration] will be complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants.”
