Trump suggests he could declare emergency

Donald Trump

"So they come into areas where you don't have the barriers", Trump said.

"I think there's a good chance that we'll have to do that", Trump added, referring to the possibility of an emergency. "She's - she's costing the country hundreds of billions of dollars because what's happening is when you have a porous border, and when you have drugs pouring in, and when you have people dying all over the country because of people like Nancy Pelosi who don't want to give proper border security for political reasons, she's doing a awful disservice to our country". "I don't think Democrats want border security. She doesn't mind human trafficking or she wouldn't do this because you know ..."

"We haven't declared the national emergency yet, but we're building the wall", the president said. "He told the attorneys that I'm not a subject, I'm not a target", he said.

Still, the perception that he "got owned" by House speaker Nancy Pelosi might tempt Trump to try and "salvage some political capital with the minority of Americans who still seem inclined to support him" by taking some new extreme measure, says The New York Times. Richard Shelby, R-Ala. Asked how they differ, Shelby replied, "You have to ask them but I think it's pretty obvious". I have to say, the military has done an incredible job, including helping us with some walls and some fences, which are very nice to say. But on Thursday he described negotiations with opposition Democrats "a waste of time". The official said he was instructed not to say whether any other specific countries would be mentioned. " Schumer added: "We can secure our border without an expensive, ineffective wall".

The 33-year-old star informed management, including Vince McMahon, of his decision to leave this weekend at the Royal Rumble . Rousey said that while Lynch was on the pre-show at WrestleMania a year ago , she stole the show in her debut.

Claiming that there are three caravans heading towards the United States, he said if there was a wall, it would not even be a problem. But it could expose new divisions within the party on Trump's signature issue of a border wall, creating a portrait of disunity that most Republicans would like to avoid. Trump campaigned on stopping the flow of undocumented immigrants, with the wall, which he pledged Mexico would pay for, being his signature promise.

Trump will also address foreign policy issues during his speech, including the U.S. trade war with China, the situation in Venezuela and the ending of USA involvement in conflicts overseas, the administration official said.

If so, the speech would stand in contrast not only to Trump's latest remarks about Pelosi but also to his tone throughout his presidency. "I've set the table, I've set the stage for doing what I'm going to do".

Pelosi has previously backed legislation to fight human trafficking and called it "an abhorrent crime". "When you see today what's going on, people that aren't willing to do what they have to do, and they know what they have to do, they're doing the country a tremendous disservice".
