President Donald Trump opened Tuesday tweeting with a reverential shoutout to Rush Limbaugh, saying that the conservative radio host is "a great guy who truly gets it."

The "it" that Rush "truly gets" is that he nailed the reason behind Trump's new threat of shutting down the government in September over immigration and border security, including the wall.

"The key is over what? Immigration. Trump is showing he’s not afraid of a government shutdown — which, believe me, the base of this party loves," Rush said Monday on "The Rush Limbaugh Show."

"The Republican base is Trump’s now," Rush said. "It’s not a bunch of populist nationalists. It’s the mainstream of the Republican Party that’s for Trump, and they hate this cowering before the Democrats and the media over government shutdowns.

"They hate giving up every policy idea in the face of the blackmail of the government shutdown. So they loved Trump saying he’d be willing to do it over this because the issue of immigration is what got him elected.

"Because, folks, all Trump has right now is his base. That’s his line of defense. That’s his wall, Rush said.
