Scramble inside the West Wing over Trump’s threat to close the border

Washington (CNN)There was a scramble inside the White House on Monday over President Donald Trump’s threat to shut down the southern border, three people familiar with what happened tell CNN.

After acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said the President would follow through on his threat “unless something dramatic” happened, aides huddled in the West Wing with two goals: find a way to keep Trump from closing the border, and if that wasn’t doable, figure out the logistics in case he does.
Administration officials have been unable to articulate when or for how long the President would close the border, whether that closure would apply to air travel and what it would mean for the US economy.
