President Donald Trump has "alternative options" for building a border wall and he'll keep them on the table, whether or not he signs off on a border funding bill that allows far less money than he had been demanding, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Wednesday.
"Like the president said yesterday, he is not happy about it, but it is okay he will get the job done no matter what," Sanders told Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "He has alternative options. And he will keep those on the table. We'll see what the final package looks like. The president will make a determination whether or not he is going to sign it."
Trump will deliver on his promise to build the wall, just like he has his other promises, but he wants to see what the final bill looks like before making a decision if he'll sign it.
"This has made some progress," she said. (House Speaker) Nancy Pelosi said she wasn't going to give a dollar for the wall. This has roughly $1.4 billion, that will go towards the wall, that the whole country knows that we need."
Further, the bill expands Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said Sanders, adding that there are some positives in the bill, but "not enough," so Trump is not happy with it.
Sanders also said the news that the Senate Intelligence Committee has determined that there is no evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia in the 2016 election is what the administration has been saying all along.
