President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he welcomes a government shutdown if congressional leaders do not agree to a deal to keep the government open later this week. “I’d love to see a shutdown,” he said during a roundtable with legislators and law enforcement officials on immigration, adding that Democrats need to agree to his demands for immigration restrictions. “Shut it down.” Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-Va.), who was attending the roundtable, told Trump: “We don’t need a government shutdown over this.” Lawmakers in both parties have said they hope to avoid another government shutdown like the one that occurred after talks broke down last month.
