Trump, who has long railed against illegal immigration at the border, has recently seized on humanitarian concerns to argue there is a broader crisis that can only be solved with a wall. The White House is reportedly asking networks to cover a speech by Trump following the border visit.

But even if blocked, Mr Trump could claim to his base that he had done what he could, while ending the damaging government shutdown.

The shutdown, now into its 18th day, follows disagreement between the new Democrat-controlled House and the White House over budgeting several government departments whose funding has lapsed.
