In two more weeks, cost of shutdown could exceed what Trump wants for the wall - Philly.com

“It will only take another two weeks to cost the U.S. economy more than the $5.7 billion that the White House requested for the border wall,” S&P said in a statement.

  “It will only take another two weeks to cost the U.S. economy more than the $5.7 billion that the White House requested" to fund Trump’s current proposal for additional border barriers, S&P said in its statement.

  That’s “a modest impact on the $19 trillion” U.S. economy, but it will add up, and continue to “shave approximately $1.2 billion off real GDP in the quarter for each week that part of the government is closed.”
