New Delhi, Jul 30 (ANI): The United States (US) President Donald Trump said he was willing to shut down the government if the promises made by the Congress to fund his border wall were not fulfilled by September. "I would be willing to 'shut down' government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall! Must get rid of Lottery, Catch & Release etc. and finally go to system of Immigration based on MERIT! We need great people coming into our Country!" Trump tweeted. This comes in the light of similar threats that Trump has issued in the past, with him saying in March that he would be open to "closing up the country for a while" if he was not to get his wall, the CNN reported.
