Shelby: "Pressure Works"

As President Trump raises the specter of a government shutdown over funding for the border wall,  Alabama's senior senator suggested the move could be successful.  "Pressure works," said Senator Richard Shelby (R-Tuscaloosa), chairman of the powerful Appropriations Committee, during an interview with Fox News.   Shelby added, "We all fear a government shutdown ... and we should try to avoid it."  At a rally in Tampa, Fla. Tuesday night, the President made it clear he's ready to do whatever is necessary to secure the funding, telling supporters:  "We may have to so some pretty drastic things, but we're going to get it."
