President Trump is threatening a government shutdown if he doesn’t get what he wants on immigration.

Just two months before the nation’s budget deadline, the President tweeted: "I would be willing to shut down government if the Democrats do not give us the votes on border security, including a wall."

Meanwhile, there’s new controversy in the Russia investigation. the President’s attorney says there are dozens of secret recordings by Mr. Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen, which may prove there was nothing illegal about payments to silence women the President was allegedly having affairs with. 

These new developments come after Cohen announced he is ready to tell investigators that Trump knew about the meeting between his son and a Russian lawyer to get damaging information on Hillary Clinton.
