I ‘set the table beautifully’ for next border wall fight with Democrats

Freelance journalist Laura Bassett on Sunday warned Super Bowl-watchers not fall for President Donald Trump's pregame interview because she said it was filled with "a lot of ignorance and a lot of lies".

Trump called Pelosi "very rigid" and suggested he may go around a negotiating Congress to implement the border wall by declaring a national emergency, something he believes is both appropriate and has precedent.

"Together we can break decades of political stalemate, we can bridge old divisions, heal old wounds, build new coalitions, forge new solutions and unlock the extraordinary promise of America's future", Trump plans to say, according to the excerpt, which was read to reporters at a briefing on Friday.

Trump did not hold back when Brennan asked about his attempts to negotiate with Pelosi, the rare political foe whom the president has not branded with a derisive nickname. "She wanted to win a political point". Pelosi has called the wall expensive, ineffective and immoral. House Democrats have threatened to sue over such a move.

"We're building a lot of wall right now as we speak, and we're renovating a lot of wall, and we're getting ready to give out some very big contracts with money that we have on hand and money that comes in".

"Well, I think that she was very rigid - which I would expect - but I think she is very bad for our country", the president said.

"But if you don't have it - human trafficking, just as an example".

'This really is an invasion of our country by human traffickers.

A bipartisan House-Senate committee is considering proposals for funding border security measures for the current fiscal year ahead of a deadline in two weeks when stopgap funding ends and a new partial federal shutdown could begin.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reportedly speaks with President Trump about the possible ramifications of declaring a national emergency at the southern border.

"We will be looking at a national emergency, because I don't think anything is going to happen". A McConnell spokesman declined to discuss the senator's private conversations. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

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".

Pelosi said funding for more ports of entry or additional border security technology was open for negotiation.

Democratic negotiators unveiled a detailed opening position containing no money for additional physical barriers on the border to control the flow of illegal immigrants and drugs.
