  • Pelosi, Trump agree to Feb. 5 date for State of the Union

He signaled on Friday that the address, an annual rite of American politics, will include extensive remarks about his standoff with Democrats over building a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, the subject of an intense partisan battle that prompted a 35-day partial government shutdown that ended a week ago.

The president and Democrats are at an impasse over Trump's request for $5.7 billion in funds for border wall construction.

Two years into his term, Trump has built a track record of killing congressional deals.

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

"I know the Republicans want to do something", he said.

"We recognize, as I said, 70-90 percent of what we're concerned about, whether it's drugs or whatever comes through the ports of entry, let's make them stronger with roads that go with it so that we can facilitate commerce and tourism and immigration and, first and foremost, security", she said.

What's more, it would restrict any remaining unobligated funds from being used to build "physical barriers" in certain areas near wildlife refuges and historical parks.

"I'll continue to build the wall, and we'll get the wall finished", he added.

House Democrats would redirect the saved money to items such as $502 million for humanitarian needs at the border, $400 million for border security technology, and $156.7 million for new aircraft, ships and sensors.

Trump also touted what he said were his successes in Syria, where he has alarmed allies by abruptly announcing a withdrawal of USA troops assisting local forces against the Islamic State group, and in North Korea.

On Jan. 31, Nancy Pelosi said that Democrats will not include any money for a border wall in their proposed legislation.

He demurred Thursday when asked about doing so by the Times but said that, whatever avenue he pursues, Pelosi would not be able to block him.

Without giving any details, Trump tweeted Thursday "More troops being sent to the Southern Border to stop the attempted Invasion of Illegals, through large caravans, into our Country".

Trump gave some indications during the shutdown on what he'd like to see in a deal. "I've set the stage for doing what I'm going to do". The president claimed that Ryan said congressional Republicans would back the president's bid for money in return for him not vetoing a spending bill past year. "It's a lose-lose-lose situation".
