President Trump Calls For "Nuclear Option" in Congress

President Trump this morning is calling for Republicans to use a "Nuclear Option" to pass a budget and end the government shutdown.  

The President took to Twitter to praise the GOP for "fighting for out military and safety at the border," while accusing Democrats of wanting "illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked."  

Trump suggested that the Republicans change the rules so they only need 51 votes in the Senate instead of 60, a number that requires some Democrat support.
