Trump insisted that he is building the wall and will continue building it, as this is the only way to stop the flow of illegal immigrants into the country.
A spokesman for McConnell declined to comment on the Post story.
In the interview, as reported by CBS News, he said that negotiations with the opposition Democrats - which started after the government shutdown ended - are a waste of time.
And Trump again dismissed chances that he'll get the $5.7 billion in wall funding he wants from a bipartisan congressional committee charged with producing a border security solution that could forestall another government shutdown.
"We're getting nowhere with the Democrats", Trump told reporters at the White House today. "We're building the wall", he said. However he would nearly certainly face immediate court challenges, with Democrats arguing that there is no real emergency on the frontier. A national emergency declaration, he claimed, "does help the process". House Democrats would be likely to move swiftly to approve such a resolution, and the law provides that it would come to the Senate floor, where it would require only a majority vote to pass. Republicans in the Senate need at least seven Democrat votes to sign a spending measure.

Trump is pitted between the political middle and his own base, which has embraced his demand for a border wall.
On Thursday, though, Trump said, "Let's just call them WALLS from now on and stop playing political games!"
"You had quite the showdown with Speaker Pelosi", said Brennan. Although McConnell has warned about the perils of another shutdown or a national emergency, Trump has dangled both as possibilities.
The president indicated he will address the national emergency issue during his State of the Union Address before Congress on Tuesday, saying to "listen closely to the State of the Union, I think you'll find it very exciting". "On a political basis, what she's doing is - I actually think it's bad politics, but much more importantly it's very bad for our country".
If there is no deal on border security in less than three weeks that Trump would sign, there could be another government shutdown. Sulzberger said no to the invitation and offered an on-the-record chat with two Times reporters present, and Trump agreed.
