Speaking to reporters during a cabinet meeting Friday, President Trump indicated that he is fully expecting that the bipartisan committee tasked with drafting a border security package will never be able to agree on funding for a border wall.
“We will be looking at a national emergency, because I don’t think anything’s going to happen. I think the Democrats don’t want border security,” the president said.
President Trump said about 115 miles of border wall currently under construction will soon be completed, using money they already have on hand, but said he can see “we’re not going to get anywhere with the Democrats.”
The president then said to be sure and watch his State of the Union address, implying more news would be released about the wall or a potential national emergency at that time.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer have repeatedly vowed they will not give any money for a border wall, saying the wall is “immoral.”
