Here’s How Trump Thinks He Can Get His Wall

Here’s How Trump Thinks He Can Get His Wall

He has insisted that the wall is essential to addressing illegal immigration and drug trafficking, while Democrats have slapped the proposal as an "inefficient, unnecessary and costly" solution to strengthening border security.

He will "travel to the Southern border on Thursday to meet with those on the frontlines of the national security and humanitarian crisis", Sarah Sanders said in a tweet.

He has stuck by that financial demand - even after he said he would show flexibility on the wall being constructed out of steel instead of out of concrete.

On Sunday, Trump appeared confident he would get his way in a Tweet. The working group was established after two contentious meetings between Trump and congressional leaders at the White House last week. "Congress gives them money and says we don't know what's going to happen over the next year - here's 100 billion", Harvard Law School Professor Mark Tushnet told NBC News, guessing at an approximate funding amount.

"It is not a sign of weakness to try to figure out a middle ground, and I think that both sides need to indicate a willingness to listen and to compromise", US Senator Susan Collins of Maine said on NBC.

"I can relate and I'm sure that the people that are on the receiving end will make adjustments - they always do - and people understand".

She called the debate over using steel versus concrete "bizarre".

Trump is demanding at least $5.6 billion for the wall.

"Look, if (President) Harry Truman couldn't nationalize the steel industry during wartime, this president doesn't have the power to declare an emergency and build a multi-billion dollar wall on the border", Congressman Adam Schiff said on CNN.

Bohemian Rhapsody is the victor of the best film drama Golden Globe Award. "You have been my ally, my confidant, you are my love. Olivia Colman, who plays Queen Anne in offbeat royal romp The Favourite , and Bale won as expected in the comedy acting races.

But the letter also provided a fuller picture of Trump's border demands. There are strong restrictions on the U.S. military and its funding being deployed for domestic, non-defense purposes, though emergency laws sometimes permit it. "We have no choice.it's a very important battle to win". "A see-through wall made out of steel is far stronger than a concrete wall".

"I haven't done it, but I may do it", Trump said.

Trump's allies say he is simply keeping a long-standing campaign promise and they frame his focus on his base as a smart strategy, since he will need to energize those supporters for his re-election campaign.

Around 800,000 federal workers have not been paid since 22 December.

Trump said Sunday a national emergency declaration would depend on how negotiations to break the impasse with House and Senate Democrats over border wall funding play out in the next few days.

A source in the meeting said the weekend talks were good only in the sense that they got a more precise sense of what the administration wanted.

Vice President Mike Pence led a second round of talks with congressional aides on Sunday about the issue, but Mr Trump said he did not expect those talks to produce results, noting that the principals - himself, Ms Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer - were the ones who could solve it quickly.

While the USA military and other major agencies are still fully funded, the impasse has left 800,000 government workers from other departments furloughed or working without pay. However, in a statement posted on Twitter earlier on Monday, the president said he would prefer reaching a funding deal with Congress.
