As a protracted partial shutdown of the federal government was on pace to be the longest in U.S. history, President Trump made the comment as he headed from the White House to Texas, where he visited the U.S. -Mexico border.
Trump has been counseled by outside advisers to move toward declaring a national emergency for the "crisis" that he says exists at the southern border.
President Trump also said he has "no idea" whether he can get a deal with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who opposes spending money on an "ineffective, wasteful wall".
The president said the "easy solution is for me to call a national emergency. but I'm not going to do it so fast", adding, "This is something that Congress can do".
Some 800,000 federal workers have been affected by the ongoing partial shutdown, missing their paycheck on Friday.
Trump invoking a national emergency "might break an impasse and it needs to be broken one way or another", Shelby said as the Senate adjourned.
"Replacing more visible rights harms with - potentially - less visible ones is not a good answer", St. Vincent said. "The only emergency we have on the border right now is people seeking asylum".

"That is not a historical claim that I think any president or any Congress should want to make" - Sen.
Donald Trump has used all the powers of the presidency to make his case that there is an immigration crisis: shutting down the government, holding impromptu press conferences, giving a televised speech from the Oval Office and visiting the border. By Friday, lawmakers said they were being told those projects will not be touched and the White House was now looking for other funds to pay for the border wall. I am in the White House ready to sign!
The Transportation Security Administration, responsible for airport security screening, said its rate of unscheduled absences rose to 5.6 percent on Saturday from 3.3 percent a year ago but that security standards have not been compromised.

Women blame Trump and Republicans by a margin of 35 points, and men blame the president and the GOP by 13 points.
ManyDemocrats, meanwhile, say they have little reason to give into Trump's demand for border wall funding since taking control of the House in the midterm elections. Jared Kushner was among those opposed to the declaration, arguing to his father-in-law that pursuing a broader immigration deal was a better option.
Asked why he had not yet declared a national emergency, Mr Trump said he was giving Congress a chance to "act responsibly". That's according to a congressional aide and administration official familiar with the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the request. "Yes", Meadows told reporters this week. It would allow him to tap unspent Defense dollars to pay for construction. That is identical to the end of the 16-day shutdown in 2013, when 29 per cent blamed then-president Barack Obama and 53 per cent put the responsibility on congressional Republicans. 'But those same conservatives, I'm sure if it's deployed, would embrace him as having done all he could do to negotiate with Democrats'.
Opponents say that a unilateral move by the president over the sensitive border issue would be constitutional overreach and set a unsafe precedent in similar controversies.
