US President Donald Trump has said that he plans to visit the country's southwestern border with Mexico early next year for groundbreaking.
Democrats oppose spending money on a wall, preferring instead to pump the dollars into fencing, technology and other means of controlling access to the border. He did not elaborate, but a Democratic aide granted anonymity to discuss the private talks said the White House offered $2.5 billion - an initial $2.1 billion plus $400 million Democrats called a "slush fund" for the president's other immigration priorities.
"Whatever it takes", he told reporters accompanying him Wednesday on an unannounced visit to USA troops deployed at an air base in Iraq.
"I can tell you it's not going to be open until we have a wall, a fence, whatever they would like to call it", he said, calling for a barrier to protect the Southern border.
Trump made these remarks while taking questions from reporters during a briefing with United States military leaders shortly after landing in Iraq.
Trump argued that drug flows and human trafficking can only be stopped by a wall. Some 800,000 federal workers must either work without pay for the time being, or stay home and wait to be paid later.
"Even if you agree with the wall do you want the government shut down over the wall?" Promises kept. "President Trump believes one of his strengths is he is actually doing the things he told people he would do", said Marc Lotter, a member of Trump's 2020 advisory committee and former spokesman for Vice President Mike Pence.

US President Donald Trump speaks to the press aboard Air Force One in flight as he travels from Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, to Bedminster, New Jersey, June 29, 2018. Employees classified as "essential" - including airport security, the military and those in other emergency service jobs - will continue to work, while about 350,000 federal employees are on furlough at home without pay, according to Government Executive, a publication about federal employees.
The president appeared to be trying to use his unprovoked attack on Comey as a way of highlighting supposedly unpredictable behavior from the Democratic party that has led to the current government shutdown.
Sen. Chuck Schumer of NY and Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, the Democratic leaders of Congress, said Trump "wanted the shutdown, but he seems not to know how to get himself out it".
"It's a disgrace what's happening in this country", Trump concluded.
"And we've renovated a massive amount of wall and in addition to that - and I think ever, very importantly -we've built a lot of new wall, so it's all being built", he explained.
