UPDATE 7:30 AM PT – Sat. January 26, 2018
President Trump says there is no time to waste on jump starting border security talks.
Saturday on Twitter the president said “21 days goes very quickly, and negotiations with Democrats will start immediately.”
He added it “will not be easy to make a deal, with both parties very dug in.”
He then said “the case for national security has been greatly enhanced by what has been happening at the border and through dialogue, we will build the wall!”
The president’s message comes after a historic 35-day government shutdown came to an end Friday night, after Democrats agreed to continue border security talks, and come to a deal within the next three weeks.
21 days goes very quickly. Negotiations with Democrats will start immediately. Will not be easy to make a deal, both parties very dug in. The case for National Security has been greatly enhanced by what has been happening at the Border & through dialogue. We will build the Wall!
