Trump To Address Nation Tuesday On Border Security

Trump To Address Nation Tuesday On Border Security

After a weekend filled with subsequent meetings about the shutdown, the president gave his strongest endorsement yet of a proposal to build a steel wall, rather than a concrete barrier, at the southern border.

Trump, who spent part of the day at Camp David for staff meetings, showed no signs of budging on his demand of more than $5 billion for a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

Trump has not yet made a decision on declaring a national emergency, Vice President Mike Pence told reporters, adding that the White House counsel's office is looking at the legality of such a declaration and urging the Democrats to get back to the negotiating table. "If that's not evidence of the president's desire to try to resolve this I don't know what is".

Democrats believe they have a plan to bring new leverage to the negotiations.

At the White House, on Monday, spokeswoman Mercedes Schlapp complained that Democratic leaders have yet to define what they mean when they say they are for enhancing border security.

Jerry Nadler, a Democrat in the House of Representatives, scornfully predicted: "I expect the president to lie to the American people". "I am in the White House ready to go, where are the Dems?"

Trump said, however, that he expected "very serious talks" early this week and that he "can relate" to federal workers affected by the shutdown. She called the debate over using steel versus concrete "bizarre". "How about he says, 'the wall is being built" and there's no wall.

CNN Host Says Warren's 2020 Bid Is 'Dead on Arrival'
Warren's willingness to take on Trump in Twitter tangles and pointed public speeches could give some voters additional pause. President Donald Trump and other Republicans have criticized Warren for her past claims of having Native American ancestry.

Williams said Trump is also playing "base tribal politics" and that he's playing up issues at the border to distract from other issues he's facing. The number one network in cable, FNC has been the most watched television news channel for more than 16 years and according to a Suffolk University/USA Today poll, is the most trusted television news source in the country.

"President @realDonaldTrump will travel to the Southern border on Thursday to meet with those on the frontlines of the national security and humanitarian crisis", Sanders tweeted.

Trump told reporters on Sunday morning that he was considering declaring a national emergency, and he said he planned to call the head of US Steel and other steel manufacturers to ask them to design a steel barrier for the southern border. Two sick migrant children have died in the past month after crossing the border and being taken into custody by federal authorities, and about 50 illegal immigrants per day are in need of medical treatment at hospitals.

Democrats took control of the House last Thursday. The legality of such a move is unclear, however, and the president would nearly certainly face immediate legal challenges in the courts. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., the majority leader, has held fast to his pledge that he would not put any legislation on the floor that the president would not approve.

"I can relate", Mr Trump, a former NY businessman, said when asked if he could relate to the pain of federal workers struggling to pay their bills.

During a meeting on Saturday with Vice President Pence, White House adviser Jared Kushner, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, and Mulvaney, Democrats pushed for details on how the president will spend the money he has requested.
