Trump Threw 'Temper Tantrum' After Dems Refused Border Wall, Chuck Schumer Says

"They voted for it in 2006", Trump's now-acting White House Chief of Staff Mulvaney said in an April 2017 Fox News interview. It authorized more checkpoints, advanced technology and unmanned aerial vehicles to help prevent illegal immigration.

Levin claimed the Democratic Party platform in 2008 supports "virtually everything the Republican president of the United States said today".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders claimed Customs and Border Patrol previous year apprehended almost 4,000 known or suspected terrorists at the U.S. -Mexico border. They "don't like concrete, so we'll give them steel", he said.

Schlapp's comments came as the White House continued its full court press to argue that there is a "crisis" on the southern border and that a wall is the solution to that problem.

As Trump's speech and border visit were announced, newly empowered House Democrats - and at least a few Republican senators - stepped up pressure on GOP lawmakers to reopen the government without giving in to the president's demands The closure, which has lasted 17 days, is already the second-longest in history and would become the longest this weekend. But he did not mention that Tuesday night. "But they are not going to fool Donald Trump who has got tougher than Pelosi and Schumer".

Trump, who has long railed against illegal immigration at the border, has recently seized on humanitarian concerns to argue there is a broader crisis that can only be solved with a wall. But he says having failed, Trump is now "unable to convince Congress or the American people to foot the bill".

Complete ratings for Trump's speech and response will be available later in the day.

He asserts that the government remains shut down because Democrats won't fund border security. I've held the hands of the weeping mothers and embraced the grief-stricken fathers.

She blamed Trump for rejecting the "bipartisan bills which would re-open government - over his obsession with forcing American taxpayers to waste billions of dollars on an expensive and ineffective wall - a wall he always promised Mexico would pay for!" That's because the federal government has been partially shutdown for over two weeks.

About 800,000 federal workers are being furloughed or are working without pay.

"The president walked into the room and passed out candy". The administration says it will act on its own to ensure the refunds.

But a growing number of Republicans are uncomfortable with the toll the partial shutdown is taking, and Trump's response to it. Vice President Mike Pence met privately with House Republicans, urging them to "stand strong" and insisting the White House wants to negotiate, according to people familiar with the conversation.
