congress looks set to enact a bipartisan spending bill to avert an imminent government shutdown. but president trump is suggesting he'd actually welcome a shutdown the next time around.in a tuesday morning tweet, trump seemed to lament the $1-trillion funding package he signed off on over the weekend — one that largely preserves funding for items he promised to slash, but does not advance his promised border wall — as full of concessions to democrats.then he went further — calling either for senate republicans to ditch what's left of the filibuster once and for all, or for voters to increase his party’s numbers in the chamber. he capped that with an unusual remark that seemed to embrace a shutdown as a way to push his agenda. the white house often says a controversial trump tweet “speaks f
