Notations From the Grid (Weekly Edition): On @POTUS Watch

President Trump spoke in Arizona last night despite the Mayor of Phoenix asking him not to conduct the rally.     Our team decided to only feature this "newsflash" courtesy of GovExec on the President's Explicit threat to have the Federal Government shut down unless the funding for the wall was included:

'Believe Me:' Trump Promises Shutdown if Congress Doesn't Fund the Border Wall // Eric Katz

President Trump vowed to build his promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, even if it means first shutting down the government. It was the president's clearest statement to date he would not sign any spending bill to keep federal agencies open past Sept. 30 that does not include wall funding.

What was noted in this from Haaretz in Israel was striking.    No one escaped the President's attack yesterday--including Congress and the Media and the two sitting United States Senators from Arizona.    He also conveniently glossed over his own comments during his press conference in the aftermath of the statements he made--and as he again touted his achievements.   The team at the Washington Post (another focus of the President's Fury), captured it in their Daily 202 that we regularly feature in our Daily @POTUS watch on our Twitter channel:
