While its repercussions ripple across the country, Mr Trump has also threatened to bypass Congress and invoke emergency powers to build the wall along half the 2,000-mile (3,100km) border. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall. Democrats are refusing to pay for a wall.

But the four living ex-presidents do not back him up on this claim.

The White House has not said why the situation constitutes a national emergency. Democrats said Trump will face legal challenges if doing so.

Democrats, who control the U.S. House of Representatives, have rejected Trump's demand for $5.7 billion (4.5 billion pounds) to help build such a wall.

Spokespersons for Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter confirmed to The Washington Post that none of them said those words to Trump.

Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen told reporters in a briefing on Monday that terrorists had crossed the border into the United States but that information about the number of such incidents was sensitive or classified.

Philip also blew up the argument that Jared Kushner is reportedly making to Republicans in Congress, which is that approval for Trump's wall will increase after his address and a planned visit to the border. Shortly after the president's remarks conclude, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer will deliver a response, expected to be about five minutes long.

According to a senior administration official familiar with Customs and Border Protection data, just 12 of those were encountered on the southern border between October 2017 and October 2018.

Trump said on January 6 he's considering declaring a national emergency as the United States struggles to stop the aliens from entering the country without permission, noting that even his opponents admit he has the authority to do so.

"If he has to give up a concrete wall, replace it with a steel that Democrats can say, 'See?"

Tesla Shares Plummet as Company Misses Vehicle Delivery Estimates - Again
The company's deliveries for the full year matched Wall Street estimates, but its figures for the fourth quarter fell short. If Tesla had a demand issue, therefore, the company would have cut its prices by more than 3 percent, he wrote in a note.

"Maybe he thinks he can bully us".

Trump on Sunday renewed his threat to declare a national emergency over border security as negotiations to end a partial government shutdown continued.

Trump said Sunday that he understood the predicament facing federal workers who are not receiving their paychecks. Also, sorry, no one will ever sympathize with the media scared or anxious that Trump, or anyone for that matter, would say mean, mean things about them. In December, he said he would be "proud" to shut the government down over the issue.

Len Saunders, an immigration lawyer based near the border in Blaine, Wash., said those border guards - many of whom are supportive of the president's border-security efforts - may soon stop showing up for work as they begin to feel the shutdown's financial impact.
