Ryan warns Trump not to shut down government over border security funding

“I don’t think a government shutdown is necessary and I don’t think most people want to see a government shutdown, ourselves included,” the leader of the Republican-controlled House said at a news conference in Oregon where he was promoting tax reform.

Ryan argued the House had already passed funding for border security but that the narrowly divided Senate — where Democrats have considerably more sway over what gets into funding bills — would need more time to act.
