Further clouding the question of what, exactly, $5 billion would build, Sen.
TRUMP: Well, we are.
Despite Republicans holding a bigger majority in the Senate in the next Congress, some Democratic votes will still be needed to pass funding legislation there, and Democratic senators, even more moderate ones, have been resolute against money for a wall. No, the wall is not old fashioned, the wall is 100% foolproof. "You can do two things at once", he said. The wall is the only way to do it, and technology. are just the bells and whistles on the wall.
"One of the reasons why it's so difficult to keep people from coming - obviously it'd be preferable for them to stay in their own homeland but it's difficult to do sometimes, where they live - is a insane, oftentimes conflicting series of loopholes in the law in the United States that makes it extremely hard to turn people around and send them home. They now say it is immoral- but it is far more immoral for people to be dying!" he tweeted, evidently referring to the deaths of two young Guatemalan migrants in December after being apprehended by U.S. border agents. Trump went on to bash retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal over remarks McChrystal made Sunday, calling the president untruthful and immoral. When do you anticipate talks with Chuck and Nancy, as you say, sir?
He continued, "I think the president has backed himself into a corner".
"I'm in the White House. I'm here. I'm ready to go".
"They can come over right now, they could've come over anytime. We think all of them will be gone by the time we get out".
"We are not giving up. So imaginative! The problem is, without a Wall there can be no real Border Security - and our Country must finally have a Strong and Secure Southern Border!"
Graham said he hoped to end the shutdown by offering Democrats incentives to get them to vote for wall funding and told CNN before his lunch with Trump that "there will never be a deal without wall funding".
The shutdown, which began on December 22 and has idled roughly a quarter of the federal government, was precipitated by Trump's demand, under pressure from conservative commentators, that Congress approve $5 billion to help fund a wall that was a promise made in his 2016 election campaign, although he said at the time it would be paid for by Mexico.Trump has called the wall crucial to combating illegal immigration and drug trafficking.
Republicans and Democrats have been at a standstill over Trump's demands for $5 billion to fund a border wall.
KARL: What's the bottom line for the president?
"For those that naively ask why didn't the Republicans get approval to build the Wall over the a year ago, it is because IN THE SENATE WE NEED 10 DEMOCRAT VOTES, and they will gives us "NONE" for Border Security!", he tweeted. At times the president has also waved off the idea that the wall could be any kind of barrier. That's a negotiation that seems like it's going in the wrong direction.
