Republicans quick to dismiss Trump's government shutdown threats

All three members of Vermont's Congressional delegation oppose President Trump's plan to provide money to build a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico

The statement read: 'As the Mexican government has always stated, our country will not pay, under any circumstances for a wall or physical barrier built on USA territory along the Mexican border.

Trump's threats and bullying - especially of members of Congress in his own party - are getting old.

Ryan's statement sets up a showdown between Trump and the GOP Congress over funding for the wall, which Ryan says will be dealt with in the appropriations process but the president wants included in the debt ceiling bill.

He told supporters at a "Make America Great Again" rally that opposition Democrats were being "obstructionist".

"I don't think anyone's interested in having a shutdown", he said during a visit to an Intel factory in Hillsboro, Ore.

In Trump's ideal world, Republicans would include money to construct a wall in their next government-spending measure, and that measure would pass the House and Senate with overwhelming bipartisan support.

On Wednesday, Senate minority leader Charles Schumer of NY and House minority leader Nancy Pelosi of California repeated their objections to funding a wall, and argued Trump would be responsible if the government shuts down over the impasse.

Republicans want the support of the Democrats to build a wall, need financial aid in a government spending bill, which has very fewer chances.

He promised repeatedly throughout the campaign that Mexico would pay for the wall, a promise he can not enforce. If Congress presents a budget that Trump vetoes because it omits money for his wall, it would trigger a politically loathsome shutdown, likely to be blamed on Republicans.

The blue-chip Dow futures shed 43 points, or about 0.2%, by 6:45AM ET (1045GMT), the S&P 500 futures fell 8 points, or around 0.3%, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 futures declined 18 points, or roughly 0.3%. Trump wrote in October 2013.

Investment banking company Goldman Sachs told its investors on August 18 that the likelihood of a government shutdown is now fifty-fifty, but one Axios source has blown that figure out of the water with a 75 per cent chance.

Any connection to the debt limit fight would heighten the stakes, he added. But many Republicans are reluctant to scrap the filibuster, fearing they'd be powerless if Democrats regain control one day.

Tweeted the Congressional Hispanic Caucus: "Trump irresponsibly vows to shut down govt if his immoral, ineffective & unnecessary #borderwall isn't funded by the American taxpayer". We've seen that take place over the last decade, and we're committed to making sure the American people are protected. In a press conference, perhaps with a freshly pardoned Sheriff Joe Arpaio by his side, he will announce that the wall is finally being built, "big lovely door" and all. The speech was "a ideal opportunity to lay out his fall agenda and instead he spent the time attacking the media, attacking members of his own party and pointing fingers", said Brian Walsh, a former senior official at the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

"I'm willing to do it whenever it makes sense", said Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, a founder of the conservative House Freedom Caucus. And Democrats would nearly certainly exercise the filibuster to block a bill with wall funding.
