Trump Tweets Image of Border Wall with Shutdown Looming

Jordan Kirkland - December 21st, 2018

With funding for border security stalled and an inevitable government shutdown inching closer, President Trump on Friday tweeted an image of the proposed wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

“A design of our Steel Slat Barrier which is totally effective while at the same time beautiful!” the president wrote in a caption for an image on Twitter of what appeared to be a tall steel picket-designed fence.

The tweet from Trump came amid a debate over government funding. The Senate has been scrambling to take up a spending package with billions in funding for a border wall, as Trump made clear there is a “good chance” of a partial government shutdown at midnight.
