Trump Prefers Congress Deal on Wall to Declaring Emergency

Parts of the border already have a wall such as here dividing Tijuana and San Diego County

Trump repeated his claim that many furloughed federal workers "agree 100 percent" with his demands, while asserting he also had "tremendous support within the Republican Party".

"If he has to give up a concrete wall, replace it with a steel fence in order to do that so that Democrats can say, 'See?" He tweeted that steel is "both stronger & less obtrusive".

"I don't know what he's basing this on, but he's faced so many lawsuits when he ignores the law and ignores tradition and precedent and just goes forward without any concern", the Democrat said on CBS "Face the Nation".

"We can call a national emergency and build it very quickly", possibly using the Army Corps of Engineers, he added.

A White House aide told Breitbart News that there is always a possibility that the president will visit the border in January but did not have specific guidance on the president's future plans.

"The House will first consider the Financial Services and General Government appropriations bill, which funds the Department of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service, to ensure that hardworking Americans can receive their tax refunds on schedule". That meant few specifics were actually discussed, as Democratic staffers repeatedly pushed the Administration to reopen the federal government and negotiate differences over the border after the shutdown ends.

Trump could indeed declare a national emergency, citing what the administration calls a "crisis" at the border, after almost 103,000 people were detained in October and November after entering the country illegally.

In a series of tweets, Mr. Trump quoted Mr. Obama in 2005 saying, "We simply can not allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked".

Trump's acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney told CNN on Sunday that Democratic negotiators seemed to have come to the talks Saturday "to stall". "He's not building a wall anymore, ' that should help us move in the right direction", Mulvaney said on NBC's "Meet the Press".

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer did not show his hand when asked whether the White House offer to take a concrete wall off the table was evidence of compromise.

In an interview on NBC, Republican Senator Susan Collins of ME called the debate about whether the barrier should be constructed out of concrete or steel "bizarre", and said she was frustrated that both sides "appear to be intransigent".

Vice President Mike Pence, advisor Jared Kushner, and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen led a working group with Democratic negotiators over the weekend, though no major breakthroughs were announced. Nevertheless, traditional business models are no longer sustainable and high-quality publications, like ours, are being forced to look for new ways to keep going.

Samsung's next line of TVs, coming this year, will offer voice control through Amazon's Alexa and Google's Assistant. This means that users will be able to control their Samsung TV with the help of these voice assistants.

He later tweeted the Mr Pence talks were productive.

One of the officials says no new meetings have been scheduled.

Democrats would likely demand other concessions, like protections for immigrants brought to the United States as children, otherwise known as Dreamers, or changes to other spending provisions.

Numerous government agencies first ran out of funding on December 22, as Democrats vowed to block Trump's requested $5.7 billion to build the border wall and Trump insisted on the money.

Sunday is the 16th day of the ongoing partial government shutdown, which has affected nine cabinet-level departments and dozens of agencies as well as the jobs and paychecks of some 800,000 federal employees.

"I can relate", Trump said.
