President Trump said Monday that he is “not giving up” on getting funding for a wall along the southern border, saying that he has “no choice” but to continue the government shutdown over the wall.
“We are not giving up. We have to have border security. And the wall is a big part of border security — the biggest part,” he said during an interview on Fox News’s “All American New Year” with Pete Hegseth that aired on New Year’s Eve.
Trump added during the interview that he is “ready to go” and willing to negotiate with Democratic leaders in Congress.
“I’m ready, willing and able. I’m in the White House,” he said. “I’m ready to go. They can come over right now. They could have come over any time. I spent Christmas in the White House. I spent New Year’s Eve now in the White House. I’m here. I’m ready to go.”
