Mitch McConnell, the hard-right majority leader of the U.S. Senate, understands these things, which is why he's tried to reassure the country and the world that the debt ceiling will be raised and normalcy maintained. "That should NEVER have happened!"
Congress has an end-of-September deadline to raise the debt ceiling, or the United States will fail to make all the payments it is legally required to make, and put the federal bond market into a tailspin. Trump called Flake "weak on borders, weak on crime" in an over hour-long speech to thousands of supporters.

"If we have to close down our government, we're building that wall", Trump said during an August 22 rally in Phoenix. Stocks were off on Wednesday morning, in what was widely described as a selloff because of fears of a government shutdown.
Trump does not seem like he'll back down easily on the wall, which is perhaps his most memorable campaign promise ( that Mexico was supposed to pay for). And he's going to make sure that - and has definite plans to make sure that it gets built.
However, senior Republicans were keen to quash that notion on Wednesday, with House of Representatives speaker Paul Ryan one of those to reject the idea.
"There are very legitimate problems and concerns on the border that need to be addressed", Ryan said, but "we're going to need more time to complete our appropriations process, especially in the Senate".
"Republicans need to stop the chaos and sort themselves out in a hurry", House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday. In a press conference, perhaps with a freshly pardoned Sheriff Joe Arpaio by his side, he will announce that the wall is finally being built, "big attractive door" and all.
The White House is demanding that the government funding bill include credits for Trump's border wall - a call opposed by Democrats who have the power to block the bill in the Senate, triggering a shutdown on October 1. And Democrats have sworn they will not vote for the increase if the debt ceiling bill contains funding for the wall. There has to be a breaking point, and Trump may have unwittingly revealed it last night at his 2020 campaign rally.
Liberals were furious that President Trump pardoned a law enforcement officer for trying to enforce immigration laws. Arpaio, known as "American's Toughest Sheriff" had a reputation for his treatment of illegal immigrants.
