A design of our Steel Slat Barrier which is totally effective while at the same time beautiful! pic.twitter.com/sGltXh0cu9— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 21, 2018
Unable to reach a budget deal, Congress could not stop a partial government shut-down at December 21 at midnight EST.
CNN reports that, pushing for funding for a border wall, President Trump tweeted a design of his "dream wall" along the U.S./Mexico border, with steel slats and spikes. The tweet, not surprisingly, did not lead to a budget deal.
Its been a tough week in Washington with a shutdown of the U.S. government, an abrupt exit from Syria and loss of the Secretary of Defense, and the stock market in a free fall.
