Pelosi Declines to Negotiate on Wall Money Even With Government Reopened

Donald Trump

In an interview that aired on CBS before Sunday's big game, Trump said that he had seen "Mueller's report" on the 2016 election and that it did not link his campaign to Russian Federation.

Most independent observers have cast doubt on Trump's claims. Mr. Trump maintains that a wall would be effective in preventing people from illegally crossing the border.

The president also reiterated his confidence in the administration's legal standing for declaring a national emergency, should he decide to declare one. His typical tactic is "to raise the stakes of a negotiation impossibly high", then "make a maximal demand" trusting that "the triumph of his stronger will" will lead his opponent to submit before he does.

Trump continued that Pelosi's refusal to fund his border wall is causing deaths "all over the country".

The majority leader's comments to the president came amid rising GOP concerns over the fallout if Trump were to declare a national emergency that would allow him to circumvent Congress and use the military to build new walls along the U.S. -Mexico border. Polls suggest that such a move would be "wildly unpopular", and might even encourage congressional Republicans to come to a deal without him. She emphasized that the committee would be independent and "left to its own devices" in crafting a border security budget proposal.

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

On CBS, Trump accused his political rival of being "very bad for our country".

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

"President Trump's recklessness didn't make us safer, it undermined our security with 35 days of border patrol agents, Drug Enforcement Administration agents, Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and Homeland Security personnel missing paychecks", said Drew Hammill, her spokesman. She wanted to win a political point.

Timothy Ballard, CEO of Operation Underground Railroad and Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen listen as President Trump speaks during an event on human trafficking in the Cabinet Room of the White House, Feb. 1, 2019, in Washington. "And on the 15th we have now set the table beautifully" for an emergency declaration. Trump said his aversion to letting his son play football is because "it's a unsafe sport and I think it's really tough".

Pelosi's inability to give the nation proper border security is doing a disservice to the country, referencing the amounts of drugs and human trafficking being conducted through the southern border. "And anybody that says you don't, they're just playing games".
