Trump on Wednesday threatened to shut down the government if funds were not secured to build a Mexico border wall, comments that came as a late-September deadline looms for USA officials to raise the debt ceiling or risk a default.

On the mainland, the Shanghai Composite tacked on 0.77% and the Shenzhen Composite was higher by 0.51%.
