"The only way you're going to do it is to have a physical barrier, meaning a wall, and if you don't have that then we're just not opening", stated the president.
Trump praised existing construction of replacement walls on the Southern border, promising to visit the site in January.
"It's Christmas Eve and President Trump is plunging the country into chaos", the two said in a joint statement.
President Trump speaks to members of the US Military from the Oval Office Christmas Day. "I can tell you it's not going to be open until we have a wall or fence, whatever they'd like to call it", Trump said, referring to Democrats who staunchly oppose walling off the border.
Trump made these remarks while taking questions from reporters during a briefing with USA military leaders shortly after landing in Iraq.
"Trump, who tweeted Monday that he was "all alone (poor me)" at the White House, said Tuesday that he would "rather not be doing shutdowns", saying he "wasn't able to be with my family" because he thought it would be wrong for me to be with" them in Florida while the government was closed. "At some point, the Democrats not wanting to make a deal will cost our Country more than the Border Wall we are all talking about".
At the same time, the panelists agreed that no one seems to know what Trump wants-including Trump himself.

As the partial government shutdown entered day five, Fox News's Outnumbered debated the stalemate between Trump - who is demanding funding for a border barrier - and Democrats, who have refused to approve $5 billion for it.
As a result, Trump feels vindicated in his political instincts and is increasingly unmoved by advisers, they said. Those who perform shift work, such as border patrol agents and airport security workers, have been unable to take time off and have been working without pay since Saturday, she said.
The Democratic leadership's ideological belief in essentially an "open borders" policy and the desire to deny the president nearly anything he seeks was underscored last week by Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer's declaration that the impasse will not end until Republicans throw in the towel on "the wall".
"Many of those workers have said to me, communicated - stay out until you get the funding for the wall". "Don't forget the Democrats all agreed you need a wall, until I wanted it".
After that, workers will have to wait for Congress to pass legislation to provide back pay. While the caravan of thousands approached our borders, Democrats argued that it was no more than a spontaneous effort by oppressed women and children seeking a safe harbor.
"And we've renovated a massive amount of wall and in addition to that - and I think ever, very importantly -we've built a lot of new wall, so it's all being built", he explained.
Trump declined to say whether he would accept $2 billion for new fencing, as is said to have proposed to Schumer.
