3 former presidents deny praising Trump’s zeal to build border wall

Kirstjen Nielsen Mike Pence Jared Kushner Ja'Ron Smith

The White House did not provide details of Mr Trump's trip, but the planned visit will likely highlight security concerns pushed by the administration as justification for building a wall along the United States border with Mexico.

"I have not discussed the border wall with President Trump, and do not support him on the issue", Mr. Carter said in a statement issued by the Carter Center.

Trump will address the nation from the Oval Office at 9 p.m. Tuesday to argue his case for a wall on the Mexican border.

Vice President Mike Pence said early Tuesday during an appearance on ABC that Trump will make his case for the border wall in the speech. That news prompted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to demand equal air time to respond - something that is only done during State of the Union addresses from presidents. Trump has demanded for 5.6 billion dollars in the 2019 budget for building a wall along the border with Mexico to keep out what he said are illegal migrants and drug traffickers.

The funding stalemate has shut down a fourth of the federal government, impacting 800,000 employees, either furloughed or working without pay.

We don't know what Trump will say tomorrow, but it's possible he will declare a national emergency at the border and announce his intention to wall off more of it without a congressional appropriation of funds for that goal.

Shortly after Sanders' tweet, Trump took to Twitter to announce his Tuesday primetime speech on border security.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway says the group had a "robust exchange" and "questions were asked and answered".

Bell believes that they can ship the Mad Box at a level competitive with the launch prices of other home consoles. Bell explained that the console will dethrone the Xbox One X as the most "powerful console ever built".

Trump has said he's considering declaring a national emergency to circumvent Congress and build his desired wall along the U.S.

It is true that border walls hold a special place in former President George W. Bush's legacy.

Border wall prototypes stand in San Diego near the Mexico-U.S. border, seen from Tijuana, Dec. 22, 2018.

In New Mexico, Border Patrol agents walked the Congressional delegation through the holding areas of the Alamogordo station, which Representative Jerry Nadler, a Democrat from NY, said were "miraculously" empty.

Mark Morgan, who served as chief of the Border Patrol during the Obama administration, explained Monday on Fox News the practicality of a border wall. Trump said he will not approve spending bills without funding for the wall, while Democrats say they won't approve the funding.

Pelosi and Schumer say in the statement that Trump has "the power to stop hurting the country" by ending the shutdown. They "don't like concrete, so we'll give them steel", he said. Such a decision would nearly certainly face a legal challenge.

Leaders of the nonpartisan National Governors Association made public a letter Tuesday sent to Trump and congressional leaders a day earlier, calling on them to reopen the government, saying "shutdown should not be a negotiating tactic as disagreements are resolved".

But Democrats panned his idea of a concession, floated on the Sunday talk shows: to build the wall with steel, rather than concrete.
