Trump refuses to promise scared Republican he won't shut down the government before elections
By Laura Clawson

"Nevada Sen. Dean Heller is begging Donald Trump not to shut down the government over border wall funding between now and November’s elections, but Trump isn’t making any promises to the Senate’s most vulnerable Republican. Trump is signaling that he might opt for a government shutdown when funding runs out on September 30 if he doesn’t get his wall."
"Picking that fight during an election season would hurt Republicans at the ballot box, Heller told Trump, according to an attendee and two people briefed on the meeting. Though Heller prefaced his request by heaping praise on the president, Trump was noncommittal. “We’ll see what happens,” he told the group."






====================================================

Trump is sure playing a dangerous game especially for his political party by making that wall an issue and a priority during a national election year and the threat to shut down the government. That will inevitably cost many millions of dollars or more and to others in many other ways.

if they were smart they'd run ads of Trump telling his supporters that Mexico was going to pay for the wall. None of them promised their constituents Mexico was going to pay for it. At the very least it would neutralize their Democrat opponents from using it against them.
