Trump walks out of talks on shutdown, bemoans 'total waste of time'
Trump said Thursday he was "definitely" prepared to declare a national emergency, despite warnings, even from conservatives, that such a move would amount to presidential overreach. Declaring a national emergency, the president explained, frees up a "tremendous" amount of funds.
President Donald Trump told Fox News on Thursday that he has "the absolute right to declare a national emergency" if he can't reach an agreement with congressional Democrats to provide funding for his promised wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.
The president and congressional Democrats remain at an impasse over his demand for $5.7 billion for a wall along the southern border. "They are", the president told reporters.
"I cautioned him that if President Trump directs DoD to circumvent Congress in such a legally dubious way on such a major issue, Congress will have to reevaluate its relationship with the department and judge whether each instance of broad flexibility granted to the Department is worth the risk of abuse by President Trump", Durbin said in a statement.
Trump responded to what he called "fake news" reports questioning his claim that Mexicowould pay for the wall as he left the White House Thursday on his way to McAllen, Texas, to highlight his push for a border wall amid a now 20-day government shutdown.
The USMCA "is not going to lead to the kinds of economic changes that the American people will even be able to notice, much less raise enough money to be able to pay for the wall", Todd Tucker, of liberal think tank Roosevelt Institute, told Vox. "I would nearly say definitely", Trump said when asked if he'd make such a move, the Times reports.

DNA samples requested in Cristiano Ronaldo rape case

"Again, we saw a temper tantrum because he couldn't get his way", Schumer said.
He argued that the US can't solve the problem without a "very substantial barrier" along the border, but offered exaggerations about the effectiveness of border walls and current apprehensions of those crossing illegally. President Trump insisted on Twitter. Across the street, a smaller group chanted back: "Build that wall!" On Wednesday, eight House Republicans publicly bucked the president and joined with Democrats in voting for bills that would reopen the government without financing the wall.
Wednesday's dramatic showdown between Donald Trump and Democratic leaders and the president's defiant PR trip to the border the following day seemed to confirm observers' fears: a breakthrough in negotiations to end one of the longest shutdowns in USA history is far from imminent.
In an ominous sign for those seeking a swift end to the showdown, Trump announced he was canceling his trip to Davos, Switzerland, scheduled for later this month, citing Democrats' "intransigence" on border security.
The partial shutdown would set a record early Saturday, stretching beyond the 21-day closure that ended Jan 6, 1996, during President Bill Clinton's administration.
