Trump: No shutdown deal without wall money

Trump: No shutdown deal without wall money President Trump pushed back on Democrats who stressed their opposition to a wall. "If they're not going to give money for the wall ... it's not going to work," Trump told reporters in the Oval Office. The president said he would wait to see if Congress can come up with an agreement before the Feb. 15 funding deadline before he decides whether to declare a national emergency in a bid to build the wall on his own. Citing what he said is a threat posed by a new migrant caravan making its way toward the U.S., Trump claimed that "Nancy Pelosi will be begging for a wall.
