Trump Promises Wall But Doesn’t Threaten Gov’t Shutdown Over It

In his State of the Union Tuesday, President Trump vowed he would build a wall that is “a smart, strategic, see-through steel barrier.” However, he gave no indication that he would shut down the government again if Congress refused to fund it, nor did his speech go into specifics of what a deal with Democrats on immigration would look like.

Watch the 2019 State of the Union address here (or not)
