Trump suggests border, shutdown compromise possible

Trump suggests border, shutdown compromise possible

"We'll see what happens but I certainly hear they're working on something, and both sides are moving along", Trump told reporters in the Oval Office.

While attending Democrats remained silent, Mr Trump enjoyed cheers from his supporters during the 85 minute speech, including a hand-picked crowd of guests chosen to promote his policies. "We'll see what happens", he said. Pledging to ensure that his border wall is eventually built, despite opposition from Democrats, he urged both sides of politics to compromise on a deal to improve border security.

"It was clear to me and clear to most of us the highest priority is technology - get it in place at ports of entry", said Sen.

"Border walls and the associated hyper-militarization of the border region don't make us safer", the Hispanic Caucus said.

He has previously said he will either allow government funding to lapse or declare a national emergency if a wall is not agreed to by lawmakers.

Negotiators say they're trying to strike a deal by the end of the week to give the House and the Senate time to jump through procedural hoops and send something to President Trump's desk by February 15, the next funding deadline.

Mr. Trump has said he could orchestrate another shutdown or declare a national emergency to get around Congress and build the wall if negotiators don't come up with a package he likes.

The comments come as a bicameral, bipartisan committee on border security meets on Capitol Hill.

The White House is committed to letting the negotiations play out, with some saying they are "cautiously optimistic" about getting a deal they could live with, said a senior administration official who lacked authorization to publicly discuss internal deliberations and spoke on condition of anonymity.

"I'm hopeful", said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. Such a move would "upend" the balance of powers between the White House and Congress, Republican Senator Susan Collins told reporters on Tuesday.

"If Congress won't participate or won't go along, we'll figure out a way to do it with executive authority", Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said on Fox News Channel's "Hannity" on Wednesday.

The administration has said Mr. Trump is willing to negotiate his $5.7 billion wall money request, but says he must have some cash for fencing. Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, reacted pointedly to some of Trump's remarks.

Participants said they expect money for physical barriers to end up well below the $5.7 billion that Trump has sought to begin construction of the wall, which has attained iconic significance for him and his conservative supporters. "And the president, I think, has embraced the idea that there may actually be something better than a concrete wall would have been anyway".

Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard, D-Calif., a negotiator, said it was "unrealistic" to think there would be no funding for physical barriers.

Among the things Democrats are battling against are higher levels of funding for detention beds to hold migrants crossing into the USA illegally.

Still, lawmakers have grown accustomed to expecting the unexpected from Trump.
