President Trump says he's gotten along with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), but "I don't think I will any more," because she won't give him any money for a wall along the southern border.

Trump made this prediction while being interviewed by The New York Times Thursday at the White House. He said he has basically given up on Congress reaching a deal for a wall, calling it "just a waste of money and time and energy, because it's desperately needed."
