Gutfeld added that Democrats agree with the president on border security, but they voice opposition for personal reasons against him.

Trump is expected to continue to make his case for border wall funding in a national address Tuesday evening, and he will travel to the US-Mexico border on Thursday to "meet with those on the front lines of the national security and humanitarian crisis", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders announced Monday morning on Twitter.

Trump has offered to build the barrier with steel rather than concrete, billing that as a concession to Democrats' objections to a solid wall.

That's prompted an effort inside the White House to develop plans for higher-profile messaging events that would allow Trump to underscore what he says is a border crisis. The letter from Office of Management and Budget Acting Director Russell Vought sought funding for a "steel barrier on the Southwest border".

The White House did not return a request for comment on Monday night to clarify Trump's statement about the presidents.

"I have not discussed the border wall with President Trump, and do not support him on the issue, " said Jimmy Carter. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called the wall "immoral" and refuses to budge on providing taxpayers' funding for it.

But for now, both sides are sticking to their positions and negotiations over the weekend between Vice President Mike Pence and Democratic congressional staffers yielded little progress.

As a first act, the newly-empowered House Democrats passed legislation last week to re-open the government while congressional leaders and the administration continued to debate border security. That effort is created to squeeze Senate Republicans, some of whom are growing increasingly anxious about the extended shutdown. Susan Collins, R-Maine, who said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should take up bills from the Democratic-led House.

Over the weekend, the federal agency tasked with guaranteeing USA airport security acknowledged an increase in the number of its employees calling off work.

Greg Gutfeld said on "The Five" that President Trump should talk about the "personal vendetta" Democrats have against him when he addresses the nation Tuesday.

"Democrats want to secure the border?" Sanders, for example, falsely claimed on Sunday that "nearly 4,000 known or suspected terrorists come into our country illegally", even though the overwhelming majority of those individuals are blocked from entering the United States at airports.

Such a move would all but certainly invite legal challenges. "Let's get our deal done in Congress!" the president wrote in tweet in response to a remark from Adam Smith, the new chairman of the House armed services committee, who Trump quoted as saying the president had the requisite authority.
