Upset over the congressional negotiation process, Donald Trump made an unprecedented statement on Twitter, saying "our country needs a good 'shutdown' in September to fix mess!". No other sitting President has publicly called for a governmental shutdown like this before. He alternatively suggested the Senate could "change the rules now to 51%" majority, so Republicans could bypass the 60 votes needed.
