"I mean, we're gonna have a wall".
The promise of a border wall was a central component of Trump's presidential campaign.
Following weeks of failed talks between Trump and congressional leaders, parts of the US government shut down on Saturday, affecting about 800,000 employees of the Departments of Homeland Security, Transportation and other agencies.
"I can't tell you when the government is going to reopen...."
Trump made these remarks while taking questions from reporters during a briefing with U.S. military leaders shortly after landing in Iraq.
However, the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC), a union that falls under the AFGE and supports almost 17,000 border agents and personnel employed by U.S. Border Patrol, says that while the organization does not support the shutdown, it does support the border wall. He now regrets going against his instincts previous year when he approved a plan to send thousands more troops to Afghanistan at the urging of foreign policy advisers, said a person familiar with the process.
Trump has made clear in public comments and tweets that he believes Powell is hurting the United States economy and contributing to stock market losses - two things that need to be strong to improve Trump's re-election chances. "Meanwhile, different people from the same White House are saying different things about what the president would accept or not accept to end his Trump Shutdown, making it impossible to know where they stand at any given moment", they said. They are eager to get back to work.
"Weak UK market conditions" see sales at Boots decrease
Several salient technical indicators of Walgreens Boots Alliance are now starting to make their way into the trading conversation. Following the sale, the executive vice president now directly owns 81,076 shares of the company's stock, valued at $6,386,356.52.
Trump excused federal employees from work on Monday and Christmas is a federal holiday, meaning the public could begin feeling the shutdown's effects on Wednesday.
Trump on Tuesday said he was prepared to do whatever it takes to get $5 billion in funding. After a weekend and two holiday days for federal employees, Wednesday was the first regularly scheduled workday affected by the shutdown.
Because the government is around 75 percent funded this time around, many employees will be paid through mid-January, but after that, furloughed federal employees' paychecks will begin to dry up, according to officials with the American Federation of Government Employees, one of the nation's largest unions representing federal employees.
Donald Trump marked December 25 by going on TV to issue a rambling, vitriolic rant aimed at fired former FBI Director James Comey and the Democrats. Park roads and grounds at Mount Rushmore National Memorial remain open to visitors, but there are no National Park Service-provided visitor services at Mount Rushmore during the government shutdown. "Don't forget the Democrats all agreed you need a wall, until I wanted it".
"It's a disgrace, what's happening in this country", Trump said.
"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.
