WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump is still looking at a possible declaration of a national emergency in order to move around Congress and build a wall along the southern border with Mexico, the White House said on Wednesday.

Such a declaration is "certainly still an option, something that's on the table. That's something that we are looking at," White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told Fox News in an interview, adding that the White House remained hopeful it could find a solution to the wall funding and the government shutdown with Congress.
