Rush Limbaugh: Trump Told Me He’s Getting Border-Wall Money or He’s Shutting Down the Government

Rush Limbaugh on Thursday afternoon claimed that President Trump personally informed him that he intends to receive funding for a border wall or he will shut down the government. “The president has gotten word to me that he is either getting money for the border, for border security, or he's shutting the whole thing down,” Limbaugh said, moments after House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) announced that the president will not sign the Senate’s stopgap spending bill due to “his legitimate concerns for border security,” and several days after the White House itself said the president will not shut down the government over the border-wall issue. “The president wants you to know: it’s money or nothing,” Limbaugh assured his listeners. “And if it’s nothing, he shuts it down.”
