President Trump declines to answer a final question from the press as he departs the White House Jan. 14, 2019 in Washington, DC.
President Trump is digging in his heels on his demand for a border wall, telling aides and allies that he believes he is winning the battle for public support.
Over the last 24 hours, Trump has privately touted a Washington Post-ABC News poll indicating that public support for a border wall has increased to 42% from 34% last year, a source familiar with his comments told CNN.

That’s why we elected him.
No one else would stand up for the citizens and the rule of law.
Well that’s odd. The chuckalosi clown team said the same thing. Feel safer?
What? Not “not a millimeter”?
Trump needs to pivot this to a discussion of permanent cuts.
Trump would negotiate.
If they offered hi $4 billion instead of 45.7 billion, he would take it. my opinion.
But but... he will ruin any chances that the Democrats will work with him. And he will risk totally destroying his relationship with the mainstream media. And worst of all, they might even consider impeachment!
Go ask a street cop how easy it is to get cooperation from a bad guy after you go out of your way to convince him that he has nothing to lose.
After Trump, how will I ever enjoy politics again..?
He had and has a classic centrist American vision, one which asserts the wisdom of being able to choose who will immigrate.
Nope. This is time to break them. This 5.7 is only 20% of what they were ready to do a year ago.
Time to be strong.
My local “conservative” talk show host wants to take his producer to DC and “talk sense into both of them”.
I think he’s being allowed on the air to bash “both sides”.
“But a CNN/SSRS survey published Sunday shows a majority of the public blames the President, with 55% saying he is more responsible for the shutdown than are Democrats in Congress, while 32% say the blame rests mostly with the Democrats.”
MAYBE 10% of the electorate sees the shutdown as a big issue.
While the border wall is the great question of the day, and everyone thinks it’s important one way or another. It’s crystallized, binary and symbolic of two different world views.
Let’s hope POTUS stays the course, because if he does he will prevail.
Would be even better with James E. Jones voice-over.
The next step will be to stop all immigration so the country can catch its breath and assimilate what we have now. At least for 20 - 30 years.
He can’t get them to put a single offer on the table.
Well, that’s why he was hired for the job. He’s the only one in Washington who knows they work for us, not the other way around and that’s why he won’t lose his base
Senate paychecks are not affected, more’s the pity!
We are counting on our great president to keep the government shut down until the wall construction begins. Do not believe a word that the Democrats say as they try to weasel their way to an agreement.
President Reagan was lied to when he agreed to a 3 million illegal alien amnesty deal, but never got the border security Democrats promised. Chuck and Nancy certainly are not more trustworthy...only now there are 20-25 million illegal aliens breaking our laws.
