President Donald Trump told House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) that he would proudly shut down the United States government over funding for border security during a meeting in the Oval Office on Tuesday.

Schumer and Pelosi were meeting with Trump and Vice President Mike Pence to discuss reaching an agreement to avoid a partial shutdown of the federal government due to a potential lapse in funding.

“One thing I think we can agree on is we shouldn’t shut down the government over a dispute, and you want to shut it down,” Schumer said while pointing at Trump.

Trump and Schumer then exchanged accusation over who was responsible for the last government shutdown before Trump then told Schumer that if Republicans don’t get funding for the border wall, he would shut down the government.

“I am proud to shut down the government for border security, Chuck,” Trump said.
