Donald Trump threatened to "close down the country" if Congress doesn't give him money to build his long promised border wall along the Mexican-US border, even though Congress has shown no willingness to ever grant him the money to build it. Trump also doesn't have the authority to "close down the country."

Quote | Congress on more than one occasion has told Trump he can't have his wall.

“[The continuing resolution] come[s] up again on September 28th and if we don’t get border security we will have no choice, we will close down the country because we need border security.”
