Donald Trump Cancels Davos Trip Over US-Mexico Border Wall Row

GOP not 'totally unified' on border security

Trump flew to the Texas border with Mexico to try to bolster his case for the border wall as a partial USA government shutdown tied to the issue stretched into its 20th day with no sign of new talks to resolve the impasse.

The president is requesting Congress to approve $5.7 billion to help fulfill a campaign promise to build a wall along the US southern border.

President Trump on the partial government shutdown and efforts to reach a compromise on border wall funding. He is seeking to use the trip to bolster his argument that a wall is needed on security and humanitarian grounds.

He renewed that threat Thursday shortly before departing for Texas to visit the border.

The president and congressional Democrats remain at an impasse over his demand for $5.7 billion for a wall along the southern border. To that end, White House officials in recent days have pointed to remarks by Schumer during the Obama administration endorsing lawmakers' allocation of funds for border fencing. The president argues this is essential for border security and claims the current situation is a crisis.

"If we don't make a deal, I would say 100 percent but I don't want to say 100 percent", he said.

"Not only was the president unpresidential ― surprise, surprise ― yesterday in his behavior, I think the meeting was a setup so he could walk out", Pelosi told reporters on Capitol Hill.

After the meeting on Wednesday, Schumer said that Trump threw a "temper tantrum", going so far as to slam his hand on a table.

As it stands, voters hold the GOP and Trump responsible for the shutdown.

"I didn't smash the table".

President Trump has indicated that he is willing to declare a national emergency in order to get funding for the border wall.

"I have never been more depressed about moving forward than right now". Mr. Trump reiterated on Friday while visiting the border that he was considering calling a national emergency.

"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. "But it might be the only way out of this", Manchin told reporters Thursday about an emergency declaration.
