Donald Trump claimed in an interview broadcast on Sunday to have "set the table beautifully" for the next stage of his confrontation with congressional Democrats which caused the longest government shutdown in U.S. history.

Pelosi's press conference was the first since the end of the 53-day government shutdown which began last December over disputes on funding a partial-wall along the Mexican border.

"We're building the wall now", Trump said.

According to a report from the Washington Post published Friday, McConnell told the president congress could pass a resolution disapproving an emergency declaration. His typical tactic is "to raise the stakes of a negotiation impossibly high", then "make a maximal demand" trusting that "the triumph of his stronger will" will lead his opponent to submit before he does. The super committee has a February 15 deadline to craft a deal on border security satisfactory to both political parties and to Trump, who agreed last week to end a historic 35-day partial government shutdown and allow Congress to try again to find a way forward. Polls suggest that such a move would be "wildly unpopular", and might even encourage congressional Republicans to come to a deal without him.

"We're not having a negotiation over this right now, they're having a negotiation over it in there", she said. She knows that you need a barrier, she knows we need border security.

Pelosi, by her stand against the wall, is costing the country hundreds of billions of dollars, Trump said.




"Well, I think that she was very rigid - which I would expect - but I think she is very bad for our country", Trump responded.

He also noted in a video message later on Thursday that building the wall would help stop human trafficking, which is common along the porous border.

WASHINGTON, Feb 2 ― President Donald Trump stepped up his attacks on House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi yesterday, saying "she's very bad for our country" and "doesn't mind human trafficking" because she opposes his long-promised wall along the US-Mexico border. You need a wall.

Interviewer Margaret Brennan warned Trump that he would still have to deal with the ppeaker over border and immigration issues, a national emergency notwithstanding.

In another, he added: Let's just call them WALLS from now on and stop playing political games! "He told the attorneys that I'm not a subject, I'm not a target", he said. Richard Shelby, R-Ala. Asked how they differ, Shelby replied, "You have to ask them but I think it's pretty obvious".
