The decision, confirmed by aides involved in the talks, was made because of the observances surrounding the death of former President George H.W. Bush.
"Could somebody please explain to the Democrats (we need their votes) that our Country losses 250 Billion Dollars a year on illegal immigration, not including the bad drug flow", Trump wrote on Tuesday.
The two-week delay means lawmakers have more time to haggle over the presidential push to allocate $5 billion for a border wall.
On Saturday, Trump said congressional leaders sought a two-week extension of funding ahead of a December 7 deadline to fully fund the U.S. government and that he would probably agree to it.
The US Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal from three conservation groups challenging President Trump's plan to build a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border over potential environmental concerns. He has said he is willing to endure a partial government shutdown if Congress fails to provide for border security in a spending bill. Trump deployed 5,800 United States troops to the border.
The Senate Homeland Security appropriations bill, which was reported but never brought to the Senate floor, includes $1.6 billion for "approximately 65 miles of pedestrian fencing along the southwest border in the Rio Grande Valley Sector".

The president had been scheduled to meet on Tuesday with House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer to discuss the impasse. "I would absolutely consider it and probably give it", he told reporters.
Bush said Trump and Congress' devotion of time to his grandfather's legacy reflects the late president's commitment to bipartisanship. According to a former administration official who spoke to the Post, the Bush family contacted the White House this summer to welcome Trump to the funeral.
The GOP-led House has not yet approved a Homeland Security funding bill.
A group of border-state House Democrats sent Schumer a letter last week expressing opposition to any funding for the wall, which they said would separate local communities and antagonize Mexico.
