President Donald Trump visited the U.S.-Mexico border to highlight the dangers posed by drug trafficking, human smuggling and illegal immigration as he argued for more border wall funding.

Trump announced he was nixing his trip to Davos, Switzerland, later this month . He blamed Democrats’ ”intransigence” on border security, perhaps signaling to Democrats that he’s preparing for a longer shutdown.
