Trump: The US government needs a good 'shutdown' if Senate rules don't change

Trump: The US government needs a good 'shutdown' if Senate rules don't change: President Donald Trump on Tuesday appeared to call for a government shutdown later this year in response to a bipartisan spending deal that looks set to pass Congress this week.

In tweets, the president contended that the agreement — which funds the government through Sept. 30 — shows that Republicans must get more senators elected or change the Senate's rules so they can push spending through with only a majority vote, rather than 60. He then wrote that the country "needs a good 'shutdown' in September" to fix a "mess."
