President Donald Trump rallied bipartisan support for his border wall project with a tweet Friday morning.
The president was back to business after the Thanksgiving holiday, calling the Southern border wall part of a “major border security package.”
“Republicans and Democrats MUST come together, finally, with a major Border Security package, which will include funding for the Wall,” Trump wrote from his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
“After 40 years of talk, it is finally time for action. Fix the Border, for once and for all, NOW!”

Funding for the border wall has remained a top issue for congressional Republicans and a key issue in the upcoming budget.
Trump has kept the door open to a government shutdown if Democrats don’t support a deal to fund parts of the border wall, The Hill reported.
Congress will have to make a decision by Dec. 7 how it will allocate funds for the next fiscal year.
Fortune described a “one-upmanship between Democrats and Republicans” on the issue of funding the border wall.
