McConnell warned Trump about declaring emergency to build wall

McConnell warned Trump about declaring emergency to build wall

"And when I hear them talking about the fact that walls are immoral, walls don't work - they know they work", Trump said.

"I think there's a good chance that we'll have to do that", Trump added, referring to the possibility of an emergency declaration.

"She's costing the country hundreds of billions of dollars because what's happening is when you have a porous border, and when you have drugs pouring in, and when you have people dying all over the country because of people like Nancy Pelosi who don't want to give proper border security for political reasons, she's doing a bad disservice to our country", he said. "I think there's a good chance we'll have to do that". "That accounts for about 6 percent of our traffic", Border Patrol chief Raul Ortiz told journalists during President Trump's January 10 visit to Rio Grande Valley, Texas.

"I'm certainly thinking about it", he said of declaring the emergency.

In the interview with CBS Face the Nation, the president attempted to portray the shutdown that ended last month without funding for his wall as a victory over Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic House speaker. Trump campaigned on stopping the flow of undocumented immigrants, with the wall, which he pledged Mexico would pay for, being his signature promise. But on Thursday he described negotiations with opposition Democrats "a waste of time".

"President Trump proposed logical solutions", said Sen. But we will, at the same time, be building - regardless, we're building wall and we're building a lot of wall.

She even documented the entire conversation that she had with her friend in a series of stories which were shared on Instagram . Ariana Grande made a decision to get inked in Japanese kanji characters this week, but had the wrong phrase tattooed .

White House aides claim that Trump has 115 miles of wall that will either be finished or under construction by the end of 2019. "We've designed a much better-looking wall that is also actually a better wall, which is an interesting combination", he said.

In the event focused on human trafficking, the president made the case that building a southern border wall would cause human trafficking to go down by a "tremendous percentage", making the case that human trafficking is hard to pull off at legal points of entry.

"Unsecure borders give traffickers free and clear passage to transport their victims into the United States".

If so, the speech would stand in contrast not only to Trump's latest remarks about Pelosi but also to his tone throughout his presidency.

"The President's wild and predictable misrepresentations about Democrats' commitment to border security do nothing to make our country safer", she said. The official would not say whether Trump would criticize Pelosi or Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, his antagonists in the shutdown fight, by name in his address. "I think she's got to get on the ball, because we're going to have a wall that's being built anyway". "And this really is an invasion of our country by human traffickers..."
