President Donald Trump on Thursday assured conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh he would veto a funding bill, and shut the government down, if lawmakers do not agree to border security funding.

"I just got a phone call — well, I got an instant message, it's the equivalent of you getting a phone call, because that's how people communicate with me," Limbaugh said on his radio show Thursday. He said he received a "direct message" that read:

"'You tell Rush that if there's no money in this, it's getting vetoed. If there's no money for a wall, I'm vetoing this plain and simple,'" Limbaugh said of Trump's message.

Minutes later the talk show host said he "received clearance" to explain further.

"The president has gotten word to me that he is either getting funding for the border, or he's shutting the whole thing down."

Limbaugh has been critical of a continuing resolution that avoided a government shutdown but denied funding for a border wall.
