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:
Great to see how hard Republicans are fighting for our Military and Safety at the Border. The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked. If stalemate continues, Republicans should go to 51% (Nuclear Option) and vote on real, long term budget, no C.R.’s!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 21, 2018
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.”
