Today 10 January, Maduro becomes illegitimate president of Venezuela. He sent this message to the Venezuelan people and to the countries of the hemisphere who have united in declaring the @AsambleaVE as the only legitimate body. - @SenRubioPress

Trump: "When I said Mexico would pay for the wall in front of thousands and thousands of people obviously I never meant Mexico would write a check."
POTUS on declaring a national emergency to build a wall: "I'll probably will do it, maybe definitely."
: "Great support for Border Security and the Wall." @foxandfriends Even greater than anyone would know. "Presidents supporters do not want him to cave." @SteveDoocy I won't.
: There is GREAT unity with the Republicans in the House and Senate, despite the Fake News Media working in overdrive to make the story look otherwise. The Opposition Party and the Dems know we must have Strong Border Security, but don't want to give "Trump" another one of many wins.
: Cryin Chuck told his favorite lie when he used his standard sound bite that I "slammed the table and walked out of the room. He had a temper tantrum." Because I knew he would say that, and after Nancy said no to proper Border Security, I politely said bye-bye and left, no slamming.
