'Good Chance,' Says Trump, I'll Declare National Emergency Declaration to Build Wall

President Donald Trump during a meeting with American manufacturers in the Oval Office of the White House on Jan. 31 2019

"I don't take anything off the table", Trump told the CBS News show "Face the Nation" in an interview broadcast Sunday, a week after a record 35-day shutdown of a quarter of government operations was ended. I happen to think it's very bad politics because basically she wants open borders.

"She knows that you need a barrier", he said.

Trump once again called a congressional conference committee debating border security a "waste of time" and said his administration was proceeding with the construction of 115 miles of wall on the border with Mexico using money "on hand".

Trump said at a White House event he might declare an emergency because it did not appear Democrats in Congress were moving toward a deal to provide wall money. As both sides dig in their heels, whether an agreement will be reached remains unclear. Trump has agreed to open the government for three weeks, until February 15, to allow negotiations with Democrats after a 35-day partial government shutdown, the longest in U.S. history.

In defending the wall, Trump recited his usual list of talking points, claiming drugs are "pouring in" and that there are "people dying all over the country because of people like Nancy Pelosi who don't want to give proper border security for political reasons".

Pittsburgh Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and Los Angeles Chargers receiver Keenan Allen left the game with bruised knees. New York Jets safety Jamal Adams and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes were named the defensive and offensive MVPs.

Pelosi has previously backed legislation to fight human trafficking and called it "an abhorrent crime".

She "doesn't mind human trafficking", Trump added, striking a deep blow at Pelosi. "On a political basis, what she's doing is - I actually think it's bad politics - but much more importantly it's very bad for our country".

The president hinted Friday that he might make the controversial announcement during the State of the Union speech as he spoke to reporters about wall that had already been built on the border. And the only way you have a strong border is you need a physical barrier.

"I'll continue to build the wall and we'll get the wall finished", he said. "I don't think Democrats want border security".

Trump continued that Pelosi's refusal to fund his border wall is causing deaths "all over the country". "We have very fast airplanes, we have very good cargo planes". "A lot of people in the National Football League have been calling and thanking me", he said, referring to his part in efforts to reform the criminal justice system and grant clemency to a number of federal prisoners serving long sentences for drug crimes. Its tone will seek to be traditional for a State of the Union, the official said - bipartisan, optimistic and visionary.
