President Donald Trump has said it will be a ‘good time’ to shut down the federal government if Congress doesn’t give him the funding to build the wall along the U.S. border with Mexico.

Speaking at the White House on Saturday before flying to California, Trump suggested that he would be prepared to shut down the government next month.

‘I think probably, if I was ever going to do a shutdown over border security, when you look at the caravans, when you look at the mess, when you look at the people coming in, this would be a very good time to do a shutdown,’ Trump said.

Trump has asked for $5 billion to build the border wall, which was a key promise to voters during his election campaign.

He had vowed to make Mexico pay for the 2,000-mile wall, but has since acknowledge the U.S. taxpayers will have to foot the bill.

Trump predicted on Saturday that Democrats would agree to the funding to avoid a government shutdown.

‘I don’t think it’s going to be necessary because I think the Democrats will come to their senses,’ he said.

‘If they don’t come to their senses, we will continue to win elections.’

Meanwhile, Trump said the 5,800 military troops deployed to the U.S. border will remain there for ‘as long as necessary’ in a bid to deter the caravan of migrants currently making its way through Mexico.
