President Donald Trump, speaking to reporters from the South Lawn of the White House Sunday afternoon, refused to rule out a shutdown of the Federal government if Democrats don’t end the impeachment inquiry.
The president took time to erroneously frame the impeachment inquiry, falsely claiming it is over just his July 25 phone call during which he attempted to extort the president of Ukraine.
“It depends on the negotiation — I wouldn’t commit to anything,” Trump replied, after taking several swipes at Democrats.
