The lawmakers are up against a February 15 deadline for ending an impasse over Trump's demand for $5.7 billion this year to help build a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border that he says is needed to deal with a crisis of illegal drugs and undocumented immigrants.

"I certainly hear that they are working on something and both sides are moving along", Trump said.

Trump had previously said he doesn't expect the talks to produce much and he's threatened to declare a national emergency to bypass Congress and build a U.S. -Mexico border wall.

He said, "The only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics or ridiculous partisan investigations" an apparent swipe at the special counsel investigation into ties between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 campaign, as well as the upcoming congressional investigations.

She did not provide any details what kind of border security measures might be funded in any deal to keep the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies operating through the end of this fiscal year on September 30.

In an interview with Politico, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D. Calif., said that Republicans would not support another partial shutdown and predicted that will be avoided.

But Trump has continued to insist on a wall, although it was unclear what his definition of that was. "The plan includes a lot of stuff that I think would enjoy wide bipartisan support, but there's an auditory shutdown when people say two words: the wall". "President Trump looks forward to visiting with the patriots of Texas who are on the front lines of the struggle against open border Democrats who allow drugs, crime, and sex trafficking all along our border every day".

A barrage of footwear hit Trump's image when he said, "Walls save lives".

The San Francisco based bank tweeted about the outage at about 9 a.m., and asked customers to check back for updates. Customers responded to Wells Fargo on Twitter , some threatening to take their business elsewhere.

"There's a couple of different ways we can do it", Mulvaney said Wednesday evening on Fox News.

So Trump tried to build a steel-slat fence, but Congress refused to pay for his fence.

"I'm hopeful", said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

Though a bipartisan group in Congress has been trying to forge a compromise, Trump has said many times that he thinks the effort is in vain and feels he has the complete authority to declare a national emergency to fulfill his campaign promise. Trump has not said he plans to abandon that approach, but Mulvaney on Wednesday mentioned there were multiple options being studied, with a preference toward initiatives that are harder to block in court.

It is legally hard for the White House to move money that was appropriated for one objective and spend it on something else, which is one primary reason Trump has pushed Congress to authorize construction of the wall.

"We're going to have them up before the appropriations conference committee, and we are going to find out what they want", said Shelby to CNN news.

As a candidate and earlier in his presidency, Trump promised more than 200 times that the wall would be paid for by Mexico. But Trump rejected the deal, which did not include any money for a wall, starting a shutdown that lasted 35 days and was the longest in US history.
