Trump says he has 'no problem' shutting down government

Likening trying to get immigration reform through Congress as "pulling teeth", Trump said he's not suggesting a shutdown because of politics, but because "it's the right thing to do".

Trump tweeted. "Must get rid of Lottery, Catch & Release etc. and finally go to system of Immigration based on MERIT!" I think it would be great before [the elections].

It was the president's third shutdown threat in as many days. The majority leader also stated that discussions over wall funding would "probably" be pushed until after the upcoming November elections. That would set up another fiscal showdown during a lame-duck session.
