Trump on Border Negotiations: Without a Wall, It Doesn't Work and I'm Not Interested in Wasting My Time

Speaking to reporters at the White House Thursday, President Trump gave an update on ongoing negotiations with Capitol Hill over border security and a wall.

President Trump also said he is waiting to make a decision on declaring a national emergency until February 15.

Before his remarks, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she isn't budging on funding for a wall, but appeared open to some kind of barrier as part of a deal.

“If the president wants to call that a wall, he can call it a wall. Are there places where enhanced fencing, Normandy fencing, will work? Let them have that discussion,” Pelosi said.

"If there's no wall it doesn't work. She's [Pelosi] just playing games," Trump said. “By the way If you go to Tijuana and you take down that wall you will have so many people [caravans] coming into our country that Nancy Pelosi will be begging for a wall, she’ll be begging for wall. She will say ‘'Mr. President, please, please give us a wall.'"

According to the Department of Defense and Homeland Security, three new caravans carrying tens-of-thousands of people are on their way from Central America to the United States.
