  • Pelosi Declines to Negotiate on Wall Money Even With Government Reopened

Freelance journalist Laura Bassett on Sunday warned Super Bowl-watchers not fall for President Donald Trump's pregame interview because she said it was filled with "a lot of ignorance and a lot of lies".

"There's not going to be any wall money in the legislation", Pelosi told reporters on January 31, reported The Associated Press.

Trump will make an appeal for bipartisan support, the aides said, despite the heightened acrimony in the nation's capital as the White House has engaged in a fierce standoff with Democrats over the president's efforts to build a border wall. "We're spending a lot of money that we have on hand, it's like in a business, but we have money on hand, and we're building - I will say we will have 115 miles of wall, maybe a little more than that, very shortly". "I think there's a good chance we'll have to do that". Trump made no mention of another closure, however, and suggested that he will declare a national emergency on the border as a way to use military funds.

"I think that she was very rigid, which I would expect, but I think she's very bad for our country", he said.

Regarding ongoing negotiations in Congress to avoid another costly government shutdown, with a deadline in two weeks, Trump said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "should be ashamed" for refusing to give the Republicans the funding for the wall he has demanded. "She knows that you need a barrier".


While the president is expected to focus on immigration, the caustic subject that brought much of the government to a standstill, Trump will also touch on his trade conflict with China and his renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement, which he wants the Democratic House to approve, the official said. "The wall that they used to build were not very attractive". "I think she's doing a tremendous disservice to the country. And this really is an invasion of our country by human traffickers". I happen to think it's very bad politics because basically she wants open borders.

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, a top McConnell confidant, said this week that he is opposed to a national emergency declaration in part because of what it might embolden a future Democratic president to do. "Because we have a much better issue". Enough drugs were contained in the shipment to kill millions of people.

"We're building the wall". Trump said his aversion to letting his son play football is because "it's a risky sport and I think it's really tough".

White House officials said the guest list for the first lady's viewing box will be released Monday, but they said the speech likely will be worked on through Tuesday.
