    That was the 19th

    Today

    President Donald Trump said Friday that he is considering using emergency powers which would allow him to use military funding to build a wall on the US-Mexico border, saying "I can do it if I want."

    "We can call a national emergency because of the security ... I haven't done it. I may do it but we can call a national emergency and build it very quickly," he said during remarks in the White House Rose Garden.

    Trump has repeatedly talked about declaring a national emergency in recent months but hasn't followed through yet, allowing the government to shut down over funding the wall rather than declaring one.

    On Friday, he seemed to indicate that he would prefer to secure the funding through Congress.
    "If we can do it through the negotiating process, we're giving that a shot," he said.

    "Absolutely," Trump replied. "We can call a national emergency. I haven't done it. I may do it. I may do it. We can call a national emergency and build it very quickly. It's another way of doing it."

    Asked if that was a threat to Democrats, Trump said: "I never threaten anybody, but I am allowed to do it -- call a national emergency."
    "If we can do it through the negotiating process, we're giving that a shot," he said.

    He was asked the question specifically about a national emergency, "today". He can use the military to build the wall without a national emergency, he can use the military to build the wall to counter illegal drug operations.

    You're missing the point----there is a huge difference in,

    He would---he is---he did

    and

    I am considering
    I may do it
    We can call an emergency
    I haven't done it yet
    I am allowed to do it

    He doesn't need the national emergency component for most of the wall. Most of the wall locations are dope trails, high traffic drug smuggling operations corridors also used for human smuggling.

    Yep, that's what he says. However, most of us won't believe it until we see it.

    Trump didn't say it. It was the Pentagon who said it a month or so ago. They said that under Title X law, they could build the walls/barriers to deal with a national emergency or to counter illegal drug operations.

    It's two different things. One is having the military build the wall - Trump. The other is using the military to build the wall for national emergencies - Pentagon.

    No, it's the Rule of Law. I realize this little thing called Rule of Law gets in the way of your wild-eyed, hair-on-fire tin foil hat rhetoric in our little Republic home of the free and land of the brave, but that's the way it is. If you don't like the law, you have to win enough elections to win enough seats to have enough votes to change them.
