Republican Senators reject Trump’s proposal to use “nuclear option” on border wall funding


On Thursday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer emphasized that the House resolution will not pass the Senate. He added, “The Trump temper tantrum may produce a government shutdown; it will not get him the wall.”

In his remarks on the Senate Floor on Friday, Schumer said Trump must take the blame for the shutdown.

“You cannot erase months of video of you saying that you wanted a shutdown and that you wanted the responsibility and blame for a shutdown. President Trump, you own the shutdown,” said Schumer.
