Trump Won't Rule Out Another Shutdown in Border Wall Dispute

Donald Trump and his latest border wall tweets

"But we will be looking at a national emergency, because I don't think anything is going to happen", Trump said.

Democratic control of the House, even as Republicans maintain a majority in the Senate, endangers Trump's legislative goals including wall funding.

President Donald Trump said on Friday he might declare a national emergency to obtain funding to build a wall along the USA border with Mexico because it did not appear Democrats were moving toward a deal that would provide the money.

"I don't take anything off the table". "She wanted to win a political point".

"But if you don't have it - human trafficking, just as an example".

"I think there's a good chance that we'll have to do that", he added, referring to declaring a national emergency. But we will, at the same time, be building - regardless, we're building wall and we're building a lot of wall.

Freelance journalist Laura Bassett on Sunday warned Super Bowl-watchers not fall for President Donald Trump's pregame interview because she said it was filled with "a lot of ignorance and a lot of lies". "I think the Democrats don't want border security".

Construction of a border wall was one of Trump's signature 2016 campaign promises, and he repeatedly said at the time that Mexico would pay for it.




Pelosi has previously backed legislation to fight human trafficking and called it "an abhorrent crime".

Trump, ahead of the CBS interview that was taped Friday, had suggested he could announce that he is taking executive action to build the wall during Tuesday's annual State of the Union address before a joint session of Congress.

When Brennan pointed out that Pelosi has "offered [Trump] over a billion dollars for border security" but doesn't want a wall, Trump asserted that a border barrier is necessary for proper border enforcement.

Pelosi held firm on her stance for no border wall funding and, after the longest shutdown in American history, Trump caved and reopened the government for three weeks while negotiations on border security funding continue.

But Sen. Richard Shelby, Alabama Republican, who has been leading Congressional negotiations on Capitol Hill wants the president to wait and see what can be worked out between the two parties.

Melania Trump, right, made a rare appearance at the White House yesterday.

"The President's wild and predictable misrepresentations about Democrats' commitment to border security do nothing to make our country safer", she said.

Democratic negotiators unveiled a detailed opening position containing no money for additional physical barriers on the border to control the flow of illegal immigrants and drugs.
