Trump wall emergency a 'good chance'

'She knows that you need a barrier.

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

Donald Trump claimed in an interview broadcast on Sunday to have "set the table beautifully" for the next stage of his confrontation with congressional Democrats which caused the longest government shutdown in U.S. history.

"It's that alternative: It's national emergency", Trump said.

A national emergency would allow Trump to proceed with a wall without congressional approval and give him executive powers to reallocate disaster relief funds to the southern Mexico border.

"She's - 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".

WASHINGTON, Feb 2 ― President Donald Trump stepped up his attacks on House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi yesterday, saying "she's very bad for our country" and "doesn't mind human trafficking" because she opposes his long-promised wall along the US-Mexico border. "I don't like to take things off the table".

Trump last week approved a temporary funding bill that ended a 35-day government shutdown caused by a stand-off between Democrats and the White House over funding for the wall. The conference committee is trying to agree to compromise legislation between Democrats, Republicans and the White House in order to avoid another government shutdown after February 15.

"The president's wild and predictable misrepresentations about Democrats' commitment to border security do nothing to make our country safer", he added. She added that the 17 House and Senate negotiators working on legislation to fund homeland security for the year should decide the components of the nation's border security. "Once we secure that border, then we can move on to the many other problems we have that include housing 40,000 people and feeding them every night". You need a wall.

He assailed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, leader of the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives, for continuing to oppose USA taxpayer-funding of the wall. "I think the Democrats don't want border security". "It's like in a business, we have money on hand, and we're building, I would say we have a hundred and fifteen miles of wall, maybe a little bit more than that very shortly".
