When President Donald Trump announced his candidacy in 2015, he declared, "I will build a great, great wall on our southern border".

"We can declare a national emergency". Some of them have told me they should have done it, Trump said.

The Washington Post suggested the White House was laying the groundwork for declaring an emergency that would let Trump build sections of a wall, possibly using funds from the Army Corps of Engineers.

Speaking at the White House, Trump said he may have to turn to a "different manner" to move forward with his long-promised wall, amid the 19-day-old partial government shutdown if Republicans and Democrats can not work together to resolve the funding standoff.

Walls surround us everyday, but for most of us, the walls we typically see are just walls; there's nothing extraordinary about them.

"I will build a great, great wall on our southern border", he declared on June 16, 2015 at Trump Tower in NY.

I have not discussed the border wall with President Trump and I do not support him in this matter, Carter said Monday in a message released by the center named after him. 10 of history's most famous walls can be found below.

Fact-checking teams at USA media outlets quickly took issue with a number of Trump's assertions - for instance, his statement that every day United States agents at the border with Mexico "encounter thousands of illegal immigrants trying to enter our country".

Also wrong are Trump's assertions that 90 percent of the heroin entering the United States crosses over from Mexico and that Mexico, indirectly, via a new trade agreement with the U.S. and Canada, would end up paying for a wall, the Times said. However, statistics show illegal immigration there is at a 20-year low and drug shipments mainly passed through legal ports of entry.

The address also offered no hope for a quick end to a partial government shutdown triggered by the row that has left 800,000 federal employees without pay.

Trump tweeted that he will not attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, later this month "because of the Democrats' intransigence on border security".
