White House backtracks after Trump opens the door to delaying funding for border wall

Trump said his administration could get the funding in September.

— -- The White House continues to send mixed signals about whether it will draw a hard line on requiring that funding for a border wall be included in any spending bill that hits the president's desk.

He said, according to tweets from conservative media at the gathering, that his administration could get the funding for the wall this week or could come back to it in September.

But when asked about it by ABC News on Tuesday morning, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said that Trump has not given up on getting funding for the wall now and that it remains an administration priority for the fiscal year 2017 and 2018 spending bills.
