Trump urges wall funding to fix border crisis in Oval Office address

It’s not about money’ Texas landowners dig in to fight Trump’s border wall

Trump interacted with "Angel parents" frequently while he was campaigning for the White House, often invoking their departed sons and daughters during speeches and speaking about the parents on a first-name basis. "So she can talk about scanning cars and drones - [but] unless you have a barrier to prevent that foot from hitting USA soil, we will not solve the illegal immigration crisis that we're facing".

Both Democratic and Republican sources questioned the episode Wednesday afternoon, wondering if Trump had staged the entire meeting to try to make Democratic leaders look unreasonable and better position himself to make an emergency declaration in the coming days.

President Trump hastened to Capitol Hill Wednesday trying to hold jittery congressional Republicans in line on the 19th day of the partial government shutdown.

Trump has been discussing the idea of declaring a national emergency to allow him to move forward with the wall without getting congressional approval for the $5.7 billion he's requested.

Democrats said before the White House meeting that they would ask Trump to accept an earlier bipartisan bill that had money for border security but not the wall.

President Donald Trump acknowledged on Tuesday that his long-proposed idea for a massive border wall is "medieval"-but he spun that as a positive".

If he was joking and they knew he was just messing around, I'd hope they wouldn't have put the time travel part in the headline. The moment came when the duo behind Mississippi Grind were asked how Captain Marvel fits into the wider MCU .

There's growing concern about the toll the shutdown is taking on everyday Americans, including disruptions in payments to farmers and trouble for home buyers who are seeking government-backed mortgage loans - "serious stuff", according to Sen.

Mrs. Pelosi has called border walls "immoral" and refused to give an inch in negotiations over Mr. Trump's demand for $5.7 billion for new barriers, Border Patrol agents, immigration judges and other tools to stem illegal immigration. "That pickup ain't got reverse in it", he said. We want to start with the facts.

Trump and Democrats remain at an impasse over border wall funding, with Trump so far refusing to agree to a spending bill that does not include border wall funding and Democrats refusing to support legislation that does fund a border wall. The administration says it will act on its own to ensure the refunds.

After meeting with Democrats over the weekend, the White House issued a series of budget demands, including a new request for $800,000 for humanitarian needs. Some say Trump's hardline policies are slowing processing for migrants, creating an overwhelming bottleneck at the border. "When Democrats talk about border security, we want to have solutions to the problems we actually have". It invited representatives from cable news outlets to a White House lunch with Trump ahead of the address, a gesture that is typically reserved for the lead-up to State of the Union speeches.

With Trump heading to the border on Thursday, few saw a speedy path to resolution for the partial shutdown, which has furloughed 380,000 federal workers and forced an additional 420,000 to work without pay. Federal workers are about to miss a paycheck.

"I prefer that we get this resolved the old-fashioned way", Thune said.
