"Hard to believe there was a Congress & President who would approve!"
Ms Conway claimed today that "the president has already compromised" by dropping his request for the wall from US$25 billion, and she called on Democrats to return to the negotiating table. They singled out Nancy Pelosi, who is set to become the speaker of the House of Representatives next week, when the Democrats will take over majority control of the House. According to reports, Pelosi has been spotted at Hawaii's Fairmont Orchid resort, where rooms prices start from $899 to $4,899 for the presidential suite.

"We can secure our border in a sensible, cost-effective manner, that does not include an antiquated border wall", U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Laredo, a member of the House appropriations committee, said in an emailed statement last week.

Democrats are looking at several options to get the government funded when they retake control of the House of Representatives on January 3 but they do not seem to be backing down from the $1.3 billion they've offered.

"There may be a wall in some places, there may be steel slats, there may be technological enhancements", Conway said.
Shutting down the border would prevent companies from moving goods across, hurting business on both sides. Trump has long lamented the shipping jobs overseas by companies, urging carmakers in particular to expand domestic production instead.
Trump began his day Friday by renewing a pair of vague threats he has made previously to seal the US border with Mexico to trade and tourism and cut off USA foreign aid money to Central American nations.
"We build a Wall or close the Southern Border". While the U.S. Department of Homeland Security says the father told them he had not been able to give his daughter food or water for "days", the family has called for an "objective and thorough investigation" into the incident. "They can't. If we had a Wall, they wouldn't even try!" he said. "They're being promised something that people can simply not deliver upon", she said.
He has also threatened to cut aid to Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, despite migrants from those countries saying they are fleeing poverty and gang violence. "Word is that a new Caravan is forming in Honduras and they are doing nothing about it".
In a tirade over four tweets, the President vented his frustration at U.S. immigration law, the globalisation of labour and a number of Central American countries that he says have been "taking advantage of the USA for years".
