Donald Trump, I can not stress enough how stupid this man is, and not just because of the decisions that he makes and the things that he says, but because of his gross underestimation of the intelligence of the American people.

President Trump had a message Saturday for immigration reformers in Congress who don't want to back his border wall: Dream on.

The president said that he met with ICE agents and border enforcement agents who told him that they "desperately needed" his proposed wall.

When President Donald Trump invited Republican lawmakers to the White House to talk about the next steps on immigration, he told them he wants money for his border wall and an end to the diversity visa lottery.

'We hope that we're going to be able to work out an arrangement with the Democrats, ' he said.

Representative Ruben Gallego, a Democrat from Arizona and an adamant opponent of Trump's wall, said he would be willing to consider a border security plan that was limited to replacing existing fencing.

As for Trump's budget request to Congress, Vaughan suggested that while there's likely to be a lot of back and forth, and Democrats are going to put up a fight, lawmakers will be nearly forced to reach an agreement this spring, given the fact that the DACA work permits expire in March and the program will begin to be phased out.

Although Democrats are willing to negotiate on border security, they are firmly opposed to Trump's wall, the funding of which still appears to be massive challenge for the Trump administration.

David Bier, a policy analyst with the Cato Institute, said a border wall would do little to stop the drug trade.

It's unclear. Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer, a Democrat from NY, tweeted Tuesday that Trump's demand for a "completely ineffective" border wall was why they had been unable to reach a deal so far.

Trump's comments came after Chang Ung, North Korea's International Olympic Committee representative, said his nation is likely to send a pair of figure skaters to the global competition coming to Pyeongchang, South Korea.

When NBC's Andrea Mitchell asked Warner about Trump's demand for border wall funding, he responded, "Andrea, for a long time we've said, as part of major immigration reform or even as part of giving this immediate relief to these dreamers, 97%, are either serving in school or the military".

"I think this was a ‘Lets wait and see whats going to happen period", said Ruben Garcia, director of the Annunciation House, a shelter in El Paso, Texas, that provides housing to recent border crossers as they search for more permanent places to live.

DACA is a program that prevented the deportation of undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S.as children.

The current stopgap spending bill expires on January 19.

Yet several Democrats are still pushing for a so-called clean bill. "We're $700 billion in the hole", Paul said on CNN.
