Trump's Rose Garden event will begin any moment. Follow along for a video thread.
TRUMP: "I am very proud to announce today that we have reached a deal to end the shutdown & reopen the federal govt. As everyone knows, I have a very powerful alternative, but I didn't want to use it at this time."

Says deal will open govt until Feb 15.
TRUMP: "They [Congress] have said they are for complete border security, and they are finally and fully acknowledging that having barriers, fencing, or walls or whatever you want to call it, will be an important part of the solution... Walls should not be controversial."
Trump is still out here making the same tired sales pitch for his wall. That ship has sailed.

"These barriers are made of steel. They have see-through visibility, which is very important." #dohkay
TRUMP's disturbing rape fantasy: "Women are tied up. They are bound. Duct tape put around their faces... in many cases, they cannot even breathe. They are put in the backs of cars or vans or trucks. They don't go through port of entry. They make a right turn into the US."
Trump butchers the word "suspected"
Trump has been making this same sales pitch for the wall for months. It cost his party 40 seats in the House, control of that chamber, and has landed his approval ratings at an all-time low. Nevertheless, he persists.
Trump closes by threatening to declare a natl emergency: "We really have no choice but to build a powerful wall or steel barrier. If we don't get a fair deal from Congress, the government will either shut down or on February 15, again, or I will use the powers afforded to me."
