The president's obsession with the wall has pushed the US government into a partial shutdown, which is poised to be the longest in the country's history.
As he spoke with reporters, Trump reiterated his baseless claim that Mexico will pay for the wall. When asked whether he might declare a national emergency to obtain funding for the border wall he said "maybe definitely."
Trump was set to head to McAllen, Texas, on Thursday, where he's expected to meet with Border Patrol officials who are currently working without pay because of the shutdown over the president's border wall funding fight.
