President Donald Trump accused Democrats of wanting "large-scale crime" in a series of tweets Monday evening.

As Trump continues his push to bolster security at the United States' southern border with Mexico, he had this to say:

Trump threatened Sunday to shut down the government if Democrats are not willing to help pass border security legislation that would include funding for a border wall. He also wants the legislation to overhaul the nation's immigration system to get rid of practices such as the visa lottery system and catch and release.

Veteran broadcaster and bestselling author Bill O'Reilly told Newsmax TV on Monday that Trump's shutdown threat is empty.

"Trump throwing a hand grenade in, saying, 'I might close down the government if you don't give me the wall money' ... Is he going to shut down the government? No," O'Reilly said.
