"I think there's a good chance we'll have to do that", said of the emergency declaration.

"We will be looking at a national emergency because I don't think anything is going to happen", Trump said of the House-Senate panel's negotiations.

The president also will discuss his national security and foreign policy initiatives, including his "determination to bring an end to USA foreign wars", the official said.

"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".

The president indicated he will address the national emergency issue during his State of the Union Address before Congress on Tuesday, saying to "listen closely to the State of the Union, I think you'll find it very exciting".

On Jan. 31, Nancy Pelosi said that Democrats will not include any money for a border wall in their proposed legislation. "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".

However, the speech is bound to be one of the most politically fraught in years, coming against the backdrop of a bitter row with opposition Democrats who refuse to fund Trump's plan for more walling along the US-Mexican border. Rick Scott, R-Fla. "If the Democrats won't negotiate with him because their judgment is clouded by their pure hatred of him, then the president needs to move forward". "She doesn't mind human trafficking or she wouldn't do this because you know ..."

"Over the next 21 days, I expect that both Democrats and Republicans will operate in good faith".

"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.

"This is a true testament to President Trump's fulfilment of his promises made to the forgotten men and women of America", Michael Glassner, chief operating officer for the campaign, said on Thursday.

"We're building the wall", the president said, "people don't understand that". "I'll continue to build the wall, and we'll get the wall finished. It's being built. Some of it has already been completed".

"If there's no wall, it doesn't work", he added.

But the president has argued that while technology and agents are crucial to border safety, it's impossible to keep the country secure without a wall stemming the flood of illegal aliens that agents have had to deal with in recent years.
