Donald Trump threatens to ‘close government’ to build Mexico wall

Donald Trump threatened to shut down the government in order to secure funding to build his controversial wall along the border with Mexico, in a remarkable Arizona speech on Tuesday night. Afterwards, his critics openly questioned whether he was ‘fit’ to be President.

During a divisive 80-minute speech, Mr Trump defended his response to the Charlottesville white supremacist violence and took aim at the media, blaming them for giving far right groups “a platform”.

The President’s efforts to build a barrier along America’s southern border have stalled in Congress, where many lawmakers question whether his main campaign promise is really necessary.
