Stivers Doesn't Think Trump Will Shut Federal Government Down


President Trump says he's willing to shut the federal government down if minority congressional Democrats don't give him the votes for border security, which includes a border wall. 

But Central Ohio Republican Congressman Steve Stivers told ABC over the weekend he doesn't think a shutdown will happen.

Congress has until September 30th to pass a budget for the next fiscal year or risk a shutdown.  Stivers chairs the Republican Congressional Campaign Committee.
