That shutdown was also sparked by Trump's insistence that any spending bill must include funds for a border wall. The U.S. government is paying for 14 out of 33 miles of borders and fencing in the Rio Grande Valley at a cost of $313 million, or around $22 million a mile, the AP reported.
"They think it's good policy for 2020", Mr. Trump said about Democratic opposition to the wall.
The speech comes as Trump begins the second two years of his first term facing major challenges: a long-running probe into whether his 2016 presidential campaign colluded with Russian Federation; investigations by House Democrats of his presidency and his business ventures; and hard trade negotiations with China, among many others.
Now, however, Democrats say they're no longer willing to extend money to the project. "We owe it to them to finish this wall and protect them from the monsters within".
"We haven't declared the national emergency yet, but we're building the wall", the president said.
If Trump does declare a national emergency, Democrats who don't want any money for a border wall will probably immediately challenge Trump in court.
However, there already are vehicle barricades known as Normandy fencing along the border, and, Pelosi said, "if the president wants to call that a wall, he can call it a wall".

But Spurs have chose to not pursue a deal despite the injury to Harry Kane keeping the England captain out until March. Batshuayi joined the Blues in 2016 but struggled for starts, thanks to the form shown by Diego Costa.
He criticised Democrats' negotiating stance so far, telling reporters in the Oval Office that Pelosi is "just playing games" and saying GOP bargainers are "wasting their time".
The Democratic measure, totaling nearly $22 billion for U.S. Customs, the border patrol, and immigration agents, would significantly increase spending for scanners at ports of entry, humanitarian aid for apprehended migrants, and new aircraft to police the U.S. -Mexico border.
Ignoring that advice, Trump issued a series of tweets on Thursday predicting failure and sounding alarms. The president claimed that Ryan said congressional Republicans would back the president's bid for money in return for him not vetoing a spending bill a year ago.
Without a border security accord, lawmakers could avert another shutdown by once again temporarily financing dozens of federal agencies, perhaps for months.
The majority of the money Trump raised during the period came from donors giving sums of $200 or less, the campaign said. Trump gave some indications during the shutdown on what he'd like to see in a deal.
It was not the first time Trump has publicly doubted his national security experts.
"I don't think another government shutdown is going to help anybody", said Senator Ron Johnson, a Wisconsin Republican.
Asked if he will definitely declare a national emergency, the president said, "I think there's a good chance we'll have to do that". "It's a lose-lose-lose situation".
