Donald Trump: Chant 'Finish the Wall' Instead of 'Build the Wall'

Trump backs down over border wall

"It's being built, some of it's already been completed, in San Diego, if you look, it's been completed", Trump said.

"I think there's a good chance that we'll have to do that", he added, referring to the possibility of an emergency declaration that could allow him to use funds that Congress has approved for other purposes.

"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", he said. "I think the Democrats don't want border security".

"She is doing a awful disservice to our country", the USA president said.

"I'm certainly thinking about it", he said of declaring the emergency.

Late a year ago, Senate Democrats had appeared to be willing to allow $1.6 billion in border wall money but retreated from that after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she wouldn't accept it.

In the interview, as reported by CBS News, he said that negotiations with the opposition Democrats - which started after the government shutdown ended - are a waste of time. We can bridge old divisions, heal old wounds, build new coalitions, forge new solutions and unlock the extraordinary promise of America's future. On Sunday a key Republican participant, Alabama senator Richard Shelby, told CNN's State of the Union that without a Trump-Pelosi truce, "the chances of us reaching an agreement are slim". The official said he was instructed not to say whether any other specific countries would be mentioned.

Trump said at a White House event that he might declare such an emergency because it did not appear that Democrats in Congress were moving toward a deal that would provide the money he wants to help fund the wall, which Democrats broadly oppose. The wall is part of a larger border security package requested by experts at the Department of Homeland Security. 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.

"Unsecure borders give traffickers free and clear passage to transport their victims into the United States". Asked if he expects the move to be challenged in courts, he said "well, we have very strong legal standing".

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. "The decision is ours to make", the president will say.

Trump, addressing reporters at the White House, said: "Nancy Pelosi is doing a very, very great disservice to our country".

"I've set the table".
