Trump to Travel to Border, Deliver Primetime Speech?

"They just are unwilling to let this president win", Sanders said. If we give him the time, he'll deliver a fact-free screed without rebuttal. But he says Trump isn't budging on his demand for billions for his border wall.

But opposition to the border wall - which Trump has now said would be built out of steel slats, rather than concrete - has also become a unifying issue for Democrats, who gained control of the House this month.

Trump insists to reporters as he departs the White House for staff meetings at Camp David that he feels the pain of hundreds of thousands of federal workers who aren't being paid. However, she said they are looking at all different options.

'I intend the call the heads of United States Steel and a couple of other of our great steel companies.

The party's leaders gave little indication that they would come to terms with the president if he simply changed the materials used to construct the wall. "Good solution, and made in the U.S.A".

Now, Trump should avoid offering Democrats the out of declaring a national emergency and attempting to build the wall with defense funding.

"That should help us move in the right direction", he said.

"The impression you get from the president (is) that he would like to not only close government, build a wall, but also abolish Congress so the only voice that mattered was his own", Pelosi told Jane Pauley in the interview, which aired on CBS News' "Sunday Morning". Scientists say the effects from these missed opportunities will be felt for a long time.

On Jan. 3, a new set of House members will be sworn in, and the majority swings by dozens of seats from Republicans to Democrats. The Smithsonian's National Zoo in Washington, D.C., is among those institutions closed due to the partial government shutdown.

Republican Sen. Susan Collins called the debate over construction material 'bizarre'.

The White House is also including appropriations requests for humanitarian assistance dollars within a comprehensive border security package, which Pence said was a concern raised by Democrats in his meetings with them. "We have human traffickers coming in".

"There's no requirement that this government be shut down while we deliberate the future of any barrier, whether it's a fence or a wall", Sen. 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.

"Unfortunately, the short answer is yes", Smith told ABC's "This Week" host George Stephanopoulos on Sunday, when asked if Trump could declare an emergency to build the wall.

Todd pressed him to see if a fencing offer was on the table.

He added: 'The administration has not come up with any specific plan as to how they're going to spend this money'.

Trump's announcement follows news from White House press secretary Sarah Sanders that the president will travel to the border on Thursday. The source said Democratic staff repeatedly urged the administration and Republicans to reopen the government, but their requests were rejected. As the National Park Service announced Sunday that it would start using money from park entrance fees to cover costs during the shutdown, some Democrats said that was not allowed under federal law. I think that's, that's by, by intention, ' he said on NBC's 'Meet the Press'. Democrats familiar with the meeting said the White House position was "untenable".

White House officials and congressional aides are returning to discussions Sunday to find a way to reopen the government after emerging from the first round of weekend talks without a breakthrough.
