Trump holds immigration roundtable at border patrol station

You won’t give me what I want’ New report shows Trump’s petty attempts to leverage shutdown

President Trump indicated Thursday he will likely declare a national emergency if Congress doesn't reach an agreement to fund his border wall - a move that is sure to set off challenges in the courts if he goes ahead with it.

Chuck Schumer, the top Democrat in the Senate, told journalists Trump "sort of slammed the table", then "got up and walked out".

But the deal considered Thursday never really stood a chance.

Once the House passes its own bill, President Trump will sign it, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in calling the measure to a voice vote. "I just don't see a pathway forward", Sen.

The South Carolina Republican later tweeted that Congress faced a "complete stalemate" over reopening the government, pinning the blame partly on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her fellow Democrats' refusal to give an inch on funding a wall Trump initially promised Mexico would pay for.

It's unclear where talks go from here ― if any occur at all.

Trump is to visit a border patrol station and receive a briefing on border security.

Trump so far has refrained from building a wall via a national emergency declaration, which would free up unidentified Pentagon funds to start its construction.

R. Kelly May Face Investigation Following Lifetime Series
Kelly and I have sometimes very untrue things written about us, so in a way this was a bond between us", she said at the time . Some even opened up about "new allegations about his sexual, mental, and physical abuse", as Lifetime boasted on their site .

"I knew the fake news likes to say it - when during the campaign I would say, 'Mexico is going to pay for it, ' obviously I never said this, and I never meant they're gonna write out a check. They are", the president told reporters.

President Trump referenced his advisers Bill Shine, Kellyanne Conway and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, who were all in the room during the off-the-record meeting, first reported by the New York Times, and said they convinced him the trip would be "worth it".

"When I say Mexico's going to pay for the wall that's what i said, Mexico's going to pay". It's in your hands. "I've run out of ideas".

"Time for President [Trump] to use emergency powers to build wall/barrier", Graham said via Twitter on Thursday.

"He's going to say I opened the government, I took control, I put people back to work, I made us safer".

The consequences of the partial government shutdown are mounting ― for national parks, airports, food inspections, emergency preparations and a host of other services. Hundreds of thousands of federal workers now face lost paychecks on Friday. "He's winning here. You have to understand he's gonna open the government".

The president stalked out of a meeting with congressional leaders Wednesday as efforts to end the shutdown fell into deeper disarray.
