Donald Trump has literally just threatened to 'shut down' the government. Yes, we don't know what on earth he means, either.

In another one of his now very regular Twitter rants, the president of the United States got angry about the Democrats blocking his border security bill, and therefore potentially blocking the Mexico border wall.

In the latest tweet, he wrote:

I would be willing to 'shut down' government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall!

Must get rid of Lottery, Catch & Release etc. and finally go to system of Immigration based on MERIT!

We need great people coming into our Country!

Humm, OKthen, of course, just 'shut down' the entire body that runs the country - yes, that's a great plan, bravo!

Some people hoped it would mean the end of Trump's twitter account.

Others brought up the subject of Trump's impeachment.

Some weren't shy about letting their opinion on the matter be known.

You're such a stable genius!

Some brought the baby blimp back into it...

There were the occasional tweets of support.

But let's face it, most people weren't impressed.
