After Trump stormed out of a White House meeting with congressional leaders, GOP senators privately gathered in Sen. I have never been more depressed about moving forward than I am right now. Trump wants $5.7 billion from Congress to fund his wall along the southern border with Mexico.
Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., defended his party Thursday minutes after Trump spoke, telling Fox News that Democrats support "strong border security". To that end, White House officials in recent days have pointed to remarks by Schumer during the Obama administration endorsing lawmakers' allocation of funds for border fencing.

"But it might be the only way out of this", Manchin told reporters Thursday about an emergency declaration.
