Trump campaigned in 2016 on building a "big, handsome wall" on the border with Mexico. The government has been partially shut down for almost two weeks as a result of the impasse.

After an introduction from press secretary Sarah Sanders, a contingent of Border Patrol guards entered the White House briefing room followed by Trump himself, who for the first time of his presidency took the lecturn in front of the press corps he so often denounces.
