Trump 'would personally prefer' shutdown fight before midterms

It's time we had proper border security.

Congress is up against a September deadline to pass a funding bill or the government could shut down October 1, just a little more than a month before the November midterm elections, in which GOP control over the House and Senate hangs in the balance. A shutdown would be the third such political embarrassment since Republicans took control of the White House, House and Senate.

Republicans in Congress are planning to delay a fight over the president's border wall until after the midterms. He has previously requested $25bn but said on Monday he has no "red line" for what must be approved and made no comment on timing before or after the midterms.

"I'll always leave room for negotiation". "But this has been many years. We just haven't gotten that far yet". It's been many years, even decades. In addition, Trump wants to end the practice of releasing immigrants caught entering the country illegally on the condition that they show up for court hearings, along with shifting the US immigration system to one based more on individual merit and less on family ties. "We have the worst immigration laws anywhere in the world", Trump declared at a Monday press conference.

"I happen to think that border security would be a good thing to do before the election, but there are many people within our party ... they're rather do it after". I think it would be great before [the elections].

Trump welcomed Conte to Washington as "my new friend", sensing a rare kindred spirit in Europe.

The President said he would be willing to shutdown the government if the Democrats don't include border security funding.

When asked about the meeting, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Tuesday that he and other Republicans support the president's goals as they try to go through a normal appropriations process "that prevents a big event at the end of the fiscal year". "It's mind-boggling to me that anybody would say well, we're going to shut down the government if I don't get my way".

But when it comes to wall money, GOP lawmakers have tried to make the case that threatening a shutdown was not a helpful tactic.

"Now, the shutdown could also take place after the election". He said the border funding issue in particular would probably have to wait until after the elections.

During Monday's press conference, the U.S. president also offered a surprise olive branch to Iran despite recent provocations, saying that he is willing to meet President Hassan Rouhani without preconditions.

"I think we should just keep proceeding and doing our work", Collins said.
