Trump steps up attacks on Pelosi for opposing border wall funds

Pelosi Calls for ‘Bipartisan Consensus’ on Border Security — Then Vows There Won’t Be ‘Any Wall Money’

A senior United States administration official said Trump will "present a path forward" on the wall impasse during the televised speech but declined to offer details.

In the interview with CBS Face the Nation, the president attempted to portray the shutdown that ended last month without funding for his wall as a victory over Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic House speaker.

"We will be looking at a national emergency because I don't think anything's going to happen", Trump said. "It's like in a business, we have money on hand, and we're building, I would say we have a hundred and fifteen miles of wall, maybe a little bit more than that very shortly". "I think there's a good chance we'll have to do that".

The president indicated he will address the national emergency issue during his State of the Union Address before Congress on Tuesday, saying to "listen closely to the State of the Union, I think you'll find it very exciting".

"I think she [Pelosi] is very bad for our country", Trump said.

Although the Democrats continue to refuse to grant the president the $5.7bn in border wall funding he was requesting, he agreed to a bill that funds the U.S. government until 15 February, thus enabling almost 800,000 employees to return to work and receive delayed payment. She knows that you need a barrier, she knows we need border security. "And this really is an invasion of our country by human traffickers".

While the president is expected to focus on immigration, the caustic subject that brought much of the government to a standstill, Trump will also touch on his trade conflict with China and his renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement, which he wants the Democratic House to approve, the official said.

"Basically she wants open borders".

Of all the Democrats' arguments against a southern border wall, the shadiest is that it would not work.

"Together we can break decades of political stalemate", Trump plans to say, according to an excerpt of his prepared remarks offered by a senior administration official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. "I've set the stage for doing what I'm going to do", he told the Times. Enough drugs were contained in the shipment to kill millions of people. "He told the attorneys that I'm not a subject, I'm not a target", he said. "But I can do it a lot faster the other way", the president said. We have an unbelievable and expensive military base built in Iraq. "People that didn't have any idea - they didn't have a clue as to what was happening, they now know exactly what's happening".
