Well, as of this morning that too is back on the table when in his latest Sunday morning tweetstorm, president Trump said that he is willing to "shut down" the government over border security.

"I would be willing to "shut down" government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall! Must get rid of Lottery, Catch & Release etc. and finally go to system of Immigration based on MERIT! We need great people coming into our Country!"

The tweet was a follow up to an earlier statement, in which the president said that "there are consequences when people cross our Border illegally, whether they have children or not - and many are just using children for their own sinister purposes" and blasted Congress for existing U.S. immigration laws while urged followers to vote for Republicans.

"Please understand, there are consequences when people cross our Border illegally, whether they have children or not - and many are just using children for their own sinister purposes. Congress must act on fixing the DUMBEST & WORST immigration laws anywhere in the world! Vote 'R,'"
