Why forties are now asking for his DNA? This is ABC news tonight with David new video thing, and it's great to have you with us here on a Thursday night. We have a lot to get to tonight. We're going to begin with the president in what he said today when asked will he declare an emergency to get his border wall built the president with border patrol officers on the US Mexico border in Texas calling it a crisis. It's now day twenty of the government shutdown tonight. House speaker Nancy Pelosi saying the president likes this saying it's because it's a distraction from what else is happening in Washington the evening. Eight hundred thousand American workers will not get paid. And is the president about to bypass congress to get the wall built Matt up. And with what the president said he's in mission. In Texas tonight. Tonight, President Trump traveling far from Washington. Those stalled shutdown talks trying to drum up support for his wall by warning of eight national security crisis at the border. If you don't have it. It's going to be nothing, but hard work and grueling problems. And by the way, and death and debt a lot of death. But we got eight different story from the local mayor, Jim darling. One of the things the president mentioned is that there is a security crisis. Here what was the murder rate in mcallen, Texas zero zero zero zero orders, whereas safest city in the state of Texas. The mayor doesn't want to wall here. There's places of barricade makes sense but not necessarily right here. And one of the reasons city, you know, but the president is dug in even before taking off he was sounding ready to declare a national emergency. So he can go around congress and use the military to build his wall. I haven't done it yet. I may do it. If this doesn't work out probably I will do. I would say definitely of house speaker Nancy Pelosi pointing out even many Republicans dislike that idea. I think he's going to have to answer to his own party on e surfing that much power. Then don't think he really wants a solution. I think he loves the distraction that this is from his other problems. And that's most unfortunate. It's a luxury our country can't afford under any circumstance, the president long promised. American tax payers would not have to pay for the wall. Who's gonna pay for the wall? His campaign website even spilled out a plan to pressure Mexico to quote, make a one time payment of five to ten billion dollars today. A different story one. I said Mexico will pay for the wall of furtive thousands and thousands of people, obviously, they're not going to write a check. But they are paying for the wall indirectly. That is not true either. The president is demanding five point seven billion dollars from congress for the wall and says he won't reopen the government until he gets it reporters today asking if the buck stops with him the buck sapped with everybody they could solve this problem in literally fifteen minutes. All right Mack up in with us live tonight from Texas and met we heard President Trump say there that he would quote, probably almost definitely declare a national emergency to allow the military to build his wall. And tonight, you're learning that the head of the army corps of engineers was actually on Air Force One with the president. That's right. David. He came with the president and stayed with him for much of his time here at the border. Now, we've just thought that the White House has directed. The army corps of engineers to examine its emergency supplemental budget to see if there's enough money in there for the military to build that wall without additional government funding. David Matt guffman in mission, Texas leading us off, Matt. Thank you tomorrow. No checks. We'll go out to those furloughed government workers nearly a million of them other workers will not get back bay. And look at this tonight demonstrations in Ogden, Utah at federal plaza in Chicago at the IRS building in Covington Kentucky at in Washington DC across this country. And tonight the coast guard is out we've this memo advice to its workers who are not getting paid telling them to be creative without their pay have a garage sale offer to watch children, walk pets house. It become a mystery shopper ABC Stevenson Saami with workers across this country. Who say this isn't politics. This is their lives. Government workers across the country are taking their anger with Washington to the streets tonight. The does keep coming. They don't stop. These are people who are missing this week's paycheck and won't get another one for who knows. How long do at the end of this month? I have bills I need to pay. In the meantime, and I'm not able to collect a paycheck about four hundred and twenty thousand of them still have to show up at work, Dan, McCabe is an air traffic controller in suburban Atlanta. Who's working for free tonight? My worry knows we're standing in. How to keep it? Keep it. He and his wife, Heather schoolteacher are worried. They could lose their home if the shutdown lasts. The government has suggested they call their lender. Make a deal, which they did they said, well, we're really sorry that you're going through this that you have thirty days to get your payment in full and after thirty days we report you to the creditors. I mean, we're not driving the bus on this. We're under the bus on this some of their bosses are giving them advice on how to get through this in this tip sheet. The coast guard says they're worker should throw garage sales babysit children or walk the neighbor's dog for extra cash stables with us live outside Atlanta tonight. And Steve President Trump has said repeatedly that most of these workers not getting paid a support. What he's doing right now. Well, the people we talked with today David answered that question tactfully saying that their concerns are more immediate than a wall such as paying for child care paying the power Bill, and they want the president to solve this. David Stevenson Saami with us tonight as well. Thank you, Steve. The other major headline involving the president at this hour. We learned today that the president's former lawyer and longtime fixture Michael Cohen will testify before congress and the American people in just weeks. Mary Bruce on the hill with what Michael Cohen is willing to answer just weeks after being swarmed at his sentencing. Tonight, President Trump's former attorney and fix her. Michael Cohen is again, stepping into the spotlight agreeing to testify under oath and in public on Capitol Hill to give what he's calling a full and credible account of his ten years at Trump side. The main doesn't tell the truth, and it said that I should take responsibility for his dirty deeds. Sentenced to three years in prison. Coen pleaded guilty to lying to congress about the president's plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow plans that extended well into the campaign, and he admitted to facilitating hush money payments in the months before the election to two women who alleged they had affairs with Trump payments that for months the president denied knowing anything about. But Cohen says he was acting at the president's direction in order to protect the campaign. And he has now spent more than seventy hours telling all to special counsel, Robert Muller. He told George Stephanopoulos. He's done being the fall guy for the president. So why should we believe you now because the special counsel stated in Sadeq, sadly that the information that I gave to them was credible, and helpful there's a substantial amount of information that they possess that corroborates the fact that I am telling the truth. But tonight, President Trump says he's not worried about Cohen's upcoming testimony. And I'm not worried about it at all. No, the president reacting to the news late today. Mary Bruce live up on the hill again tonight and Mary colon.
