After 40 years of talk, it is finally time for action.
Fix the Border, for once and for all, NOW!”????Trump sent the tweet from his Mar-a-lago resort in Florida a day after Thanksgiving, doubling down on his sentiment of a potential government shutdown if an upcoming government funding deal excludes money for a border wall.

Already past, with big vote, in House.
Would be a major victory for ALL!”????The tweets come just a day after Trump said he had closed parts of the U.S. border to Mexico and threatening to close it entirely, while also authorizing U.S. Troops to use lethal force against migrants attempting to enter the country, quote, “if they have to.”????Congress has until December 7th to fund the rest of the government before the end of the fiscal year deadline.
