"Mr. President, what is your current thinking on a national emergency? Why didn't you announce it last night and when might you," A report questioned.
"Because, I think we might work a deal and if we don't, I may go that route," Trump said. "I have the absolute right to do a national emergency if I want," Trump added.
"What's your threshold," The reporter asked.
"My threshold will be if I can't make a deal with people that are unreasonable," Trump said.
President Trump has mentioned the national emergency option many times over the past weeks. If Trump does declare a national emergency, he would be able to fund the wall without Congress being involved.
Two officials from the Pentagon said they have $1-2 billion that could be given to the wall. Not only that, there are $13 billion in obligated funds from prior years that haven't been spent that could also be used to fund the wall.
"We can call a national emergency. I haven't done it. I may do it. I may do it," Trump said. "We can call a national emergency and build it very quickly. It's another way of doing it," Trump added.
