President Trump said he believes there’s a good chance he’ll have to declare a national emergency at the border.

While speaking at the White House Friday, the president said the wall will be built one way or another. He also discussed the current construction already taking place.

The president said he is getting nowhere with Democrats on the issue, adding, Leader of the House Nancy Pelosi should be ashamed of herself on her stance.

President Trump said Pelosi is doing a great disservice to the country, because a border wall will help combat issues like human trafficking.

In addition to San Diego, the president said there’s another wall being built, however, he didn’t specify exactly where. President Trump did say that contracts are being awarded for construction.
