(Reporter question: Sir, to help the dreamers, would any sort of broader-)
«Something could be done, we can do that, Phil, we can help the dreamers, we want to help the dreamers. I was ready to help the dreamers, and then we got a decision that the folks that are representing the dreamers very strongly, which is us also, if you want to know the truth, but they said, 'Well, we don't have to do it... Еще anymore.' So now it's before the Supreme Court, we'll see what happens.»
«I don't know what they have planned. I would certainly do that, but I just don't know-»
(Reporter: It's only three blocks away from where you-)
I would do it, I would stop there if we could. You'd have to ask the Secret Service, but I would certainly — Hi folks, thank you! — I would certainly stop there. I wouldn't mind, it's not a bad idea, actually, I wouldn't mind, you know, if you want to do that, I wouldn't mind to.
(Reporter question: Mr. President, given the fact that you are holding this position and Democrats are not moving theirs, realistically-)
«Well I think they are moving theirs. If you read one of your competitors today, they will tell you that the Democrats that are starting to say this is not an argument they can win are some of the very young, very smart Democrats that just got elected to Congress. And, I don't know if you saw the same story that I did, but they're saying, 'This is not an argument we're going to win.» This is a common sense argument. Now, if for any reason we don't get this going, and they're not going to act responsibly, and they don't mind death, and crime, and all of the problems that they cause by not having a barrier, then you will see what happens with national emergency, which I can do very easily, and there's no question it holds up.»
«I don't know, I can't tell you. All I can tell you is that I feel very badly for people that have family members that have been killed, that should have never happened. Okay? Those are the people I'm thinking most about.»
US President Donald Trump reiterated his demand for «a wall or a barrier» as he visited the US-Mexico border in McAllen, Texas, on Thursday.
«They need a barrier, they need a wall. If you don't have it, it's going to be nothing but hard work and grueling problems. And by the way — and death. And death. A lot of death,» the US President said in a press briefing.
Trump however stated he would in favour of a «broader form of immigration,» saying that «we can help the dreamers; we want to help the dreamers.»
Trump's visit to the Texas border comes amid a government shutdown showdown with the Democrats over the funding of the border wall — Trump's signature campaign promise.
As it enters its third week, the government shutdown is set to become the longest in history on Saturday.
