President Trump's threat to shut down the government limits his options and will mostly harm him.
Ray Dalio, the billionaire founder of the world's largest hedge fund--Bridgewater, said in a LinkedIn post on Monday that he's...“tactically reducing” his risk because he’s concerned about growing internal and external conflict “leading to impaired government efficiency” in the US.

WASHINGTON/NEW YORK, Aug 23 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump's fellow Republicans rebuked him on Wednesday after his threat to shut down the U.S. government over funding for a border wall rattled markets and cast a shadow over congressional efforts to raise the country's debt ceiling and pass spending bills. "I don't think anyone's interested in having a shutdown," the top Republican in Congress, House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan, told reporters on Wednesday in Hillsboro, Oregon, where he visited an Intel factory.
