President Trump told reporters that he would be in favor of shutting down the government if Democrats don’t agree to make major changes to stop illegal immigration on Tuesday.

At the conclusion of a roundtable discussion about MS-13 gang violence and illegal immigration, a reporter asked Trump if he would be in favor of shutting down the government over the issue of immigration.

“I would shut it down over this issue,” Trump responded. “I can’t speak for everybody at the table, but I will tell you I would shut it down over this issue.”

“If we don’t straighten out our border, we don’t have a country. Without borders, we don’t have a country. So would I shut it down over this issue? Yes,” Trump concluded.
