Pence says White House looking into Trump's ability to declare border emergency

Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney also noted the perceived political benefit of calling for a steel barrier to NBC News saying Sunday, "If he has to give up a concrete wall, replace it with a steel fence in order to do that so that Democrats can say, 'See?"

"I don't know how you walk past this one if you are a news organization, when the president is speaking at a moment like this", Frank Sesno, director of the School of Media and Public Affairs at the George Washington University, told CNN.

A Democratic aide said Sunday's meeting started about 45 minutes late, and despite the delay they still did not receive a full budget justification.

Trump said in December he would be "proud" to shut the government down over the wall and last week told lawmakers it could last months.

Pence says the president has invited Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi back to the White House to continue their discussions.

Calling Sunday negotiations with Democrats "productive", the president wrote on Twitter later in the evening, "We are now planning a Steel Barrier rather than concrete". -Mexican border Thursday to get a first-hand look at the country's efforts to thwart illegal immigration, the White House announced Monday. About 800,000 government workers are either furloughed or working without pay.

However, the interviewer immediately called her out, citing the government's own information that none of those individuals arrived across the southern border. "He's not building a wall anymore, ' that should help us move in the right direction", Mulvaney said.

Trump maintains that more than $5 billion for a wall is necessary to secure the border.

President Trump said he doesn't expect anything to come out of Sunday's meeting after Saturday's produced no movement toward reopening the government.

Trump said he planned to call the heads of American steel companies in hopes of coming up with a new design for the barrier he contends must be built along the southern border.

Sanders says Trump is "not going to stop" until he figures out the best way to protect USA citizens and that "whatever action he takes will certainly be lawful". He claimed that "many of those people agree with what I'm doing" on refusing to reopen the government without obtaining funding for his long-promised border wall. He also asserted: "I want to stop the Shutdown as soon as we are in agreement on Strong Border Security!" Among Senate GOP moderates, Susan Collins of ME expressed support for the Democratic move on Sunday.

'I've always thought that the debate over what the physical barrier should be constructed of was rather weird, ' she said on NBC's 'Meet the Press.' 'We do need to strengthen our border security. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., the majority leader, has held fast to his pledge that he would not put any legislation on the floor that the president would not approve. Great. Come to the table, " she said.

Asked to explain how thoroughly the White House counsel's office has reviewed the possibility of an emergency declaration, Pence said it is something they have examined, but the administration would prefer to solve the problem of border security funding through Congress.

Greg Gutfeld said on "The Five" that President Trump should talk about the "personal vendetta" Democrats have against him when he addresses the nation Tuesday.
