The breakdown in already fraught negotiations over border wall funding, which have kept nine federal agencies shut down for 19 days and counting, appeared to heighten the possibility that Trump might declare a national emergency.
“I asked what is going to happen in 30 days if I quickly open things up, are you going to approve Border Security which includes a Wall or Steel Barrier? Nancy said, NO,” Trump explained in a tweet as Pelosi and Schumer described the walk-out to reporters.
“I said bye-bye, nothing else works!” Trump added.
In recent days, Trump has floated the possibility that he could circumvent the deadlocked negotiations by declarig a national emergency as a means to divert funds toward a border wall.
