"If we don't make a deal, I would say 100 percent, but I don't want to say 100 percent because maybe something else comes up", Trump said of declaring an emergency at the border.
"Time for President [Trump] to use emergency powers to build wall/barrier", Graham said via Twitter on Thursday.
A congressional official said the White House has directed the Army Corps of Engineers to look for billions of dollars earmarked a year ago for disaster response for Puerto Rico and other areas that could be diverted to a border wall as part of the emergency declaration.
The time has come for US President Donald Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a wall on the US border with Mexico, Senator Lindsey Graham said in a statement. "We shouldn't have to", Trump told reporters. "He had a temper tantrum.' Because I knew he would say that, and after Nancy said no to proper Border Security, I politely said bye-bye and left, no slamming!" He again implied that illegal immigration automatically breeds higher crime rates and said of the opposition party: "They have gone insane". Using the Internet archiving tool Wayback Machine, CBS News obtained the now-deleted memo the Trump campaign posted in April 2015 describing how the USA would compel Mexico to make a "one-time payment" of $5 or $10 billion for the wall.
On Wednesday, House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer met with Trump, but the meeting ended quickly after Trump walked out because the Democratic leaders did not compromise on funding for the border wall.

Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., defended his party Thursday minutes after Trump spoke, telling Fox News that Democrats support "strong border security". On Wednesday, eight House Republicans publicly bucked the president and joined with Democrats in voting for bills that would reopen the government without financing the wall. The President hasn't been blamed in any of the previous shutdowns. However, statistics show illegal immigration there is at a 20-year low and drug shipments mainly passed through legal ports of entry.
"I had an opportunity to talk to President Trump a few moments ago, and wanted to indicate to our colleagues that he will sign the bill that we've been discussing here to guarantee that government workers who've been displaced as a result of the shutdown will ultimately be compensated", McConnell said.
