"I have never had so much support as I have in the last week over my stance for border security, for border control, and for frankly, the wall or the barrier," Trump said. During the brief appearance, Trump also claimed that "nobody" knows more about drones than he does. The president's insistence on obtaining funding for the border wall has pushed the US government into a partial shutdown that has lasted nearly two weeks and has no end in sight.

President Donald Trump on Thursday made a surprise appearance in the White House briefing room to discuss border security, but he abruptly left without taking any questions.

This was the first time Trump stood in front of the podium in the briefing room as president. The appearance lasted less than 10 minutes.

"It's a beautiful place," the president said after looking around the room.

The president began the briefing by congratulating Nancy Pelosi over being elected as the new House Speaker but promptly changed the topic to border security.

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."

"Hopefully, we're going to work together and we're going to get lots of things done, like infrastructure and so much more," Trump said. "So hopefully, we're going to have a lot of things that we can get done together and I think it's actually going to work out. I think it'll be a little bit different than a lot of people are thinking."

Trump then turned his attention to the border wall, the main sticking point in the partial government shutdown, which began Dec. 22.

"We need protection in our country," the president said. "The people of our country want it. I have never had so much support as I have in the last week over my stance for border security, for border control and for, frankly, the wall or the barrier. I have never had anything like it in terms of calls coming in, in terms of people writing and tweeting and doing whatever they have to do. I've never had this much support."
