Trump closer to declaring emergency; 800000 won't get paid

No end for government shutdown in sight

"I would nearly say definitely", Trump said when asked if he'd make such a move, the Times reports.

"I will build a great, great wall on our southern border", he declared on June 16, 2015 at Trump Tower in NY.

Wednesday's dramatic showdown between Donald Trump and Democratic leaders and the president's defiant PR trip to the border the following day seemed to confirm observers' fears: a breakthrough in negotiations to end one of the longest shutdowns in USA history is far from imminent.

In a Thursday morning tweet, the president said there was "no slamming!"

"If we had a barrier of any kind, a powerful barrier, whether its steel or concrete. we would stop it cold", Trump said.

A teacher from another school in the town told News24 that racism would never end in the area, especially among white people. It ignited widespread outrage in a country still grappling with racism, 25 years after white-minority rule ended .


The president also said he will not go to the global conference in Davos, Switzerland, later this month if the shutdown continues.

The partial shutdown would set a record early Saturday, stretching beyond the 21-day closure that ended Jan 6, 1996, during President Bill Clinton's administration.

Trump used the backdrop of the Rio Grande border river at McAllen, Texas, to ramp up what has already turned into a hugely messy political fight with Democratic opponents, resulting in the shutdown of swaths of the United States government.

As he left for his border visit, the president - wearing khakis, a black jacket and a white "Make America Great Again" baseball cap - ripped into congressional Democrats, saying they have been "taken over" by members he contends "don't care about crime". I said they're going to pay for the wall.

Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., defended his party Thursday minutes after Trump spoke, telling Fox News that Democrats support "strong border security". "We hope he (Trump) understands that and that God helps him to change, because his ancestors were migrants too", she said in the Mexican border city of Tijuana. "And building a wall across the southern border is not an efficient use of resources", Lieu said.

Despite the sad occasion, there was still a glimmer of hope for justice as the Harris County Sherriff's Office charged Larry D. Jazmine and her three sisters were still in their pajamas as the family drove to a store for breakfast supplies.


While it's not certain President Trump will declare an emergency, the White House likes being able to hold the card over Democrats who they say have refused to compromise or even negotiate.

"I don't have temper tantrums", he said.

In an unusual move, Pat Cipollone, the White House counsel, is traveling with the President to the southern border Thursday. The table-pounding flap has sent the shutdown and border security talks to a new low, with no deal in sight.

"We can declare a national emergency". "But if we don't make a deal, I would say it would be very surprising to me if I don't declare a national emergency and just fund it through the various mechanisms - and by the way, there's more than one mechanism".

A congressional official said the White House has directed the Army Corps of Engineers to look for billions of dollars earmarked previous year for disaster response for Puerto Rico and other areas that could be diverted to a border wall as part of the emergency declaration.
