Trump : ‘major announcement’ on Border & Shutdown

President Donald Trump will make a “major announcement” Saturday afternoon on border security and what the administration has termed a “humanitarian crisis” on the U.S.-Mexico border, as the government shutdown enters its fifth week.

“I will be making a major announcement concerning the Humanitarian Crisis on our Southern Border, and the Shutdown, tomorrow afternoon at 3 P.M., live from the @WhiteHouse,” Trump tweeted Friday evening.

It is unclear what the president will announce, although he has previously floated declaring a national emergency to help fund his border wall, a key campaign promise.

However, last week he indicated that he would instead wait for Congress to strike a deal.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders dodged reporters’ questions about whether Trump would declare a national emergency.

“I’m not going to get ahead of the president, but I can assure you that he’s going to continue fighting for border security,” she said outside the White House. “He’s going to continue looking for the solution to end the humanitarian and national security crisis at the border.”

Trump has demanded $5.7 billion to build a border wall, which Democrats have not supported. Negotiations between Republicans and Democrats remain at a standstill.

    He needs to declare an emergency and build the wall to keep OUR people safe. If Pelosi wants the illegals here they’re more than welcome to climb the walls at her place and stay there.

    Anything that comes through the mainstream media (which is plainly DEMOCRAT Socialist owned) can’t be believed. They spread gossip, not facts. Like Pelosi, they don’t want to hear facts. When facts are not given, it is nothing but propaganda. I remember Hitler did that so I guess they are following Hitler’s agenda.

      Sad, but true. A free press is critical for a democracy, but it seems we no longer HAVE a free press. When the MainStream Media is approximately 90% leftist Democrat and issues a constant stream of leftist propaganda, do we have a free press?Their sometimes subtle, sometimes blatant propaganda is nothing more than an attempt to control peoples’ thinking to the agenda of the leftist Democrats.. That’s the REAL collusion to influence the elections, but is anybody bringing that up?

        Well yes, they do bring it up.
        And the main stream media no longer denies it, but if so… it’s very rarely.
        Quite brazen they have become.
        Just like DemocRats no longer denying their own socialist agendas.
        They embraced the title of socialists.
        Some even admit a communist lean.
        So much for calling us right wingers now for pointing out a fact for something they now freely admit.

    It’s time to declare National Emergency Mr. President, we can’t keep being foolish by those evil Democratic thugs and rats.
    We have to do this and this is the best way to go.
    America is being destroyed, American people are suffering. This broken illegal immigrant must be fixed and you’re the only one can fixed this.
    There are another large group of illegal immigrants have just invaded Arizona sometimes today. What are you going to do? How much longer are we going to suffer???
    Please do something about this now, we’re running out of time and can’t afford to keep play around with those crooks, criminals, thugs and rats from Democratic.
    Declare National Emergency now.

    Illegal Immigrants dug under the Wall today in Yuma! So when we build it, we need 12 foot Footer’s to avoid this. This is a total disrespect to our US Law’s, our immigration policy, and American Citizens, so why would they follow the law’s once in the US.
    I live in Arizona and as a Citizen, this is very worrisome.

    I think many people are confused about Trumps promise.. The promise was that Mexico was gonna pay for wall, not the Americans. For some reason that part of the promise is left out, go figure.. Trump had all kinds of money so why doesn’t he pay for it outta his personal funds and then go after Mexico for personal reimbursement? The money for the wall could be used across the board for immigration coming in from earth,sea and air.. From across all our borders, not just Mexico..

    What everyone is forgetting here is that the BIG promise is that Mexico is gonna pay for the wall, not the American people. If he’s wants the wall so badly, why won’t he pay for it outta his personal funds? Why do we have to pay the huge price tag.. The money is better distributed across the board to protect us from the terrorists that threaten all of us.. Protect us across all borders, land, air and sea.. Why should all the money be spent on one thing, one wall and leave us vulnerable everywhere else.. Forget the stupid wall, . Mexico will not pay for it so it shouldn’t go up.. That was the promise..

    I think the conservative movement should take hold . Push back on liberals as they push on us . Eye for an eye . As for the media boycott I for one have had enough B S from fake news. Gather all the people involved the Botched Muller investigation and bring them to justice, lock them up, then throw away the keys

    They say the wall is ineffective but the men and women who work there say it is! Who’s lying? The Democrat leadership or the men and women who risk their lives everyday at the border to protect us? I support the men and women who work there and know, not the ignorant Democratic Leaders. Give Trump the money needed to protect us for the terrorist. You gave Iran 150 billion dollars to continue with their terrorist actions. Why won’t you give 6 billion to protect us?

    HUGE CAPITAL LETTERS !! YES ! The total major [NAZI] media are stoking the fires of civil war in hopes of starting just that !! A MAJOR CIVIL WAR! What our GOD GIVEN, PRESIDENT TRUMP, should do is declare the owners and stockholders of said major media enemies of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and conspiring TRAITORS TO THE NATION. During the trials of Nazi war criminals, those same criminals continually claimed they were simply following orders of their bosses. Those same excuses for being treasonous to this government will be used by even the smallest media outlets that print local news print for the smallest group of consumers.

    I live in Yuma, Arizona and just this past Monday 367 illegals were caught entering our country thur the Yuma Area. Causing a whole lot of problems. Our local hospital is being over ran by these illegals. Because everyone of these illegals are being taken there for one thing or another. Knowing BP officers and what being told to them, Is ridiculous. These illegals are extremely demanding. They believe that since they made it into our country. They will be taking care of. Now these illegals are bring diseases into our area. And to be totally honest I’m really getting nervous. We have a lot of folks who have auto immune diseases. And I’m one of them. I have Lupus and other illnesses that, if even one of the disease that are showing up in my area and I get it. It won’t be good for me. TB or Hepatitis could kill me. But here’s the truth of the matter. I have a scheduled surgery on Jan. 29th and I’m now being advised it has to be cancelled due to the safety of my health. I need this surgery to be able to see again. But hey. I’m just a stupid U.S. CITIZEN. and my health and safety aren’t as important as these illegal ALIENS who DEMAND ASYLUM. I’m mad. Madder than I have ever been in my life. We have so many homeless folks that are in need of medical assistant, homes, food, clothing and work. Their turn away. Because they either extremely dirty/smelly. But these female that have and still are trying to enter. Seem to have new clothes, cell phones, expensive purses, high heels, make up and hair. Not all though. Then there are the ones who have 3 to 5 small children with them. They claim they are her children. Maybe they are and then maybe their not. The residents here in Yuma are starting to see what’s really going on. For one thing how can a 20 year old girl has five children with her and she claims the children are hers. The oldest is 8yrs. 2 chikdren that are 7yrs . One that’s two and another child that’s one. This illegal isn’t their mother. She’s being used as a mule. She’s getting paid a lot of money smuggling in these children. She know damm well she will be sent back. And that is just fine with her. Those five children she just got in are not her problem. And she also knows that every child she can smuggle in will now become what’s known as unaccompanied minors. And the U S will be stuck with life of caring for them. Then these girls are quickly paid sent ti another area along the border with a few more kids to smuggle in. They get richer while our country becomes poorer.
    I for one is being taken advantage of by the liberal lying heartless Democrats. Sorry for my long rant. I just wan’t to see again.

    Go Trump! Thank you for having the guts to do what you said you were going to do for the American people. We are tired of Democrats putting illegals before American citizens. We are tired of being called names by elitist so-called journalists simply because we support Trump and oppose illegal immigration. Why don’t these Democrats and journalists go to Honduras or Guatemala and publicly denounce their leaders who actually are responsible for the conditions in these countries that force their citizens to leave their countries. Perhaps they would not be so quick to open their big mouths in these countries. Lucky for them they live in a country where they can speak freely. Unlucky for the rest of us that they live here. They are little more than small-minded people, living in their insular world, puffed up with their own importance. Sadly, they are too dumb to realize that no one really cares what they say. So keep on fighting, Mr. President. Americans support you efforts to keep the country save and to make America gear again.

    i would say for the record that the President and the government should impaired the local stations and the media from spreading faked news. If they do it , they will be cancelled their abilities to run the stations and the media absolutely. We the people of USA do not want to hear all the junk and lies that they want to feed us in order to change our way of thinking, making us believe that what all these communist democrats say is true and try to change our constitution and values. They are dirty reporters they are not clean press, they should be cancelled and their certificates to operate and do their work revoked for life. We need to do this or our future generations will be fed all this crap and our America will never be the same. We have to stop all this inflammatory press that mega spreads all the communist agenda that the democrats have.
    Please Mr. President, you want to make America Great.

    Ditto, Betty Jay & Michael. We need to get our schools out of the hands of the government. This is where it all starts. Common core & indoctrination. Home school if possible or a religious school.
