The USA is entering its 4th week of a government shutdown – its longest in history.



Ultimately, this is all down to Donald Trump’s proposed Southern Border wall. There is an evident stalemate and stand-off between the two sides involved: Democrats won’t talk about border security until the shutdown is over, whilst the President won’t open government until he has assurance on funding for the wall from Congress. Neither party has an incentive to compromise and break the deadlock.

He sent a message into the show claiming that “if the wall was secure enough, then it would save money in the long-run”.



But, Benji was having none of it...
