President Trump made his first appearance in the White House briefing room Thursday afternoon at which he made another push for Congress to provide funding for his long-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border while flanked by members of the border patrol officers' union.

Trump was introduced by White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders after the White House press corps was hastily called to the briefing room. Neither Trump nor Sanders took questions from the assembled media.

The president began by congratulating Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on her election as speaker of the House, calling it a "very, very great achievement."

National Spokesperson For The RNC Kayleigh McEnany joined Fox News Radio's Guy Benson to discuss the government shutdown and more.
