[SANDERS - offers views on Trump shutting down the government despite the Senate agreement two days ago, but Trump changed his mind because of Fox TV, how a border wall is nonsense: a Trump illusion, how taxpayer money needs to be spent in a rational way rather than wasting money on a wall, on the departure of Secretary of Defense Gen.
