Trump Heads To Texas To Press For Wall
According to Reuters, U.S. President Donald Trump heads to Texas on Thursday to press his case that the country is facing a crisis that can be solved by constructing a wall along the border with Mexico.
His trip to the border town of McAllen, Texas, comes on the 20th day of a partial government shutdown.
Trump has been arguing with Democrats over his demand for $5.7 billion this year to construct the barrier.
Trump will travel to Texas with the state’s two U.S. senators.
