Here we go:
FLASH Ryan emerges from WH. Says Trump says he won't sign interim spending bill.

The President needs to know just how many people are with him on this.
We do not give a shit about a “GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN!!!!!!!!”
The Democrats and their media propaganda organs will try to scare him into backing down by saying the American people will be furious over a government shutdown, but this is an outright lie.
No one will be outraged over a shutdown–not anyone that voted for him, at least.
But we’ll be pissed if we don’t get a border wall.
We don’t care about government shutdowns. They don’t affect us. Over 80% of the federal government will still be functioning during this “shutdown”. The military will still be functioning, the VA will still be operating, Social Security checks will still go out–the so-called “government shutdown” is a myth.
Besides, what’s the point of a federal government if it doesn’t protect and enforce our borders? This is a basic prerequisite of governance: defend the integrity of our borders.
If we don’t have a border, we don’t have a country.
A federal government that does not defend the borders is not a federal government at all. I’m not sure, exactly, what it is at that point, but it has failed on a fundamental level.
President Trump needs to know the American people are with him on this–for as long as it takes, too.
Shut it down and get the wall. Whatever it takes.
Go the distance.
