President Trump has announced that he could declare a state of emergency on the border in order to build the wall without Congress. Breitbart reports:
President Donald Trump said he was willing to declare a state of emergency on Friday, in order to build a wall on the Southern border.
“Absolutely, we can call a national emergency,” Trump said when asked about the idea by a reporter. “I haven’t done it. I may do it. I may do it.”
The president spoke to reporters in the Rose Garden on Friday at the White House after meeting with Congressional leaders for more than two hours to try to make a deal.
Trump confirmed that he said that he was willing to keep the government shut down for up to a year, if necessary, if Democrats refused to make a deal on border security funding.
“I did say that, absolutely I said that,” he said. “I don’t think it will but I am prepared and I think that I can speak for Republicans in the House and Republicans in the Senate they feel very strongly about having a safe country.”
This would be an unusual way to build the wall, but the threat of its use could put pressure on Democrats to agree to fund border security.
DO IT….ENOUGH OF THIS STANDOFF AND EOPLE OUT OF PAYCHECKS….
GO FOR IT… ENOLUGH OF THIS STANDOFF, PEOPLE OUT OF PAYCKECKS.
DO IT NOW !!!!!
I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHY THE DEMOCRATS ARE SO FIRMLY ENTRENCHED IN NOT KEEPING OUR BORDER SECURE AND KEEPING ILLEGALS OUT.
I ALSO WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE WALLS OR OTHER SECURITY ELIMINATED FROM DEMOCRAT HOMES AND BUSINESSES. LET’S START WITH THEM ALLOWING PEOPLE TO INVADE THEIR PRIVATE RESIDENCES WITH NO CONSEQUENCES.
Plus that wounded vet’s page where he’s raised at least $2 million to help build it. The Dims have said they’re willing to fund border security, but NOT a wall. So, I wish he WOULD declare a nationl state of emergency, & build it. That’d shut Pelosi AND Schumer up. Plus when the House has a bill they need to pass, badly, I guarantee President Trump will veto every bill that originates in the House & lets see who cries first. I guarantee it WON’T be Donald J Trump! He’s got some backbone, & he’s not a wuss like the previous illegitimate president.
We have been in a state of emergency since 1933 and each president has quietly renewed it…..this is the source of “executive orders”. Obama did it constantly!!!
Yes, lets build the wall and put the Democrats on the other side of it.
