President Donald Trump said he wouldn’t “cave” in his demand for a border wall, adding to the likelihood that two Senate measures aimed at opening shuttered federal agencies will fail in votes on Thursday.

“Without a Wall it all doesn’t work,” Trump said, asserting that the structure would reduce crime, human trafficking, gangs and drugs. “Should have been done for decades. We will not Cave!”
