    Trump: I’m nearing decision on emergency declaration to build wall

    Trump: I’m nearing decision on emergency declaration to build wall

    ‘I may decide a national emergency depending on what happens over the next few days,’ he said.

    President Donald Trump again threatened Sunday to declare a national emergency as a means to construct his proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, saying he would first gauge the results of upcoming negotiations to end a partial government shutdown triggered by partisan debate over his campaign trail promise.

    “I may decide a national emergency depending on what happens over the next few days,” Trump told reporters as he exited the White House en route to Camp David, according to a pool report.

    "We have to build the wall or we have to build the barrier. The barrier or the wall can be of steel instead of concrete if that works better,” the president said.

    Trump also reiterated his arguments for the building of the wall and argued without supporting evidence that many of the government workers who are not receiving their paychecks are supportive of what he is doing.

    "This is a very important battle to win from the standpoint of safety, No. 1, defining our country and who we are. Also from the standpoint of dollars. This wall will pay for itself many times through the course of the year,” he said.

    The president’s remarks came as Mick Mulvaney, his acting chief of staff, told CNN’s Jake Tapper that Cabinet secretaries have been instructed to look for money within their budgets that could be used to fund Trump’s proposed border wall. Mulvaney said he has “been working with all the Cabinet secretaries to try and find money that we can legally use to defend the Southern border.”

    Trump signaled in a Friday news conference that he would consider using his emergency powers to bypass Congress and begin construction on the wall.

    “Absolutely, we could call a national emergency because of the security of our county,” the president told reporters assembled in the Rose Garden at the White House.

    “I haven’t done it. I may do it. I may do it. But we could call a national emergency and build it very quickly,” Trump said Friday, adding that he would prefer to acquire funding for the wall “through a negotiated process” with congressional lawmakers in a deal that would bring an end to the shutdown, which entered its 16th day on Sunday.

    Stop stalling! We have been waiting for that wall since 1986!!!

    Declare National Emergency, get troops to build the wall.

    No more "talks"...we want ACTION!

    We are sick of your talks!!! Shut up and do it!

    Put Central America on the Travel Ban list...they cannot come here! There are over 100 countries on the U.N. Migration Pact list...print it is Spanish and start dropping the flyers over their cities!!!

    DO NOT COME HERE! DEPORT THEM ALL.

    There was never any reason for the government shutdown.
    We go from he would to I may decide.

    This is backwards progress.

    Government shutdowns are always "backwards progress" because no one is at work to make progress. It's why they're always WRONG.

    The government shut down did NOT cause him to go from " we are building the wall" to "I may decide".

    Aern't you wore out with defending his "misspeaks" and his outright lies yet?

    As far as the government shutdown, a lot of it needs to be shut down permanently, get rid of the waste.

    Ii never said it did. I said government shutdowns are always "backwards progress". When you aren't doing your jobs, you aren't getting anything done, so no progress is made, you're falling behind in your work because you weren't there to do it.

    What is wrong with you?!

    There may be some waste, but not as much as you would think from the discretionary agencies. Most of that waste is in the non-discretionary agencies.

    Dem House Armed Services Chair: Trump Has the Authority to Use the Military to Build His Wall

    Video at the page link

    Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” House Armed Service Committee chairman Rep. Adam Smith (D-WA) said President Donald Trump does have the authority to declare a national emergency and have the military build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.
    Host George Stephanopoulos asked, “Does President Trump have the ability, have the authority to declare a national emergency and have the military build his wall?”
    Smith said, “Well, unfortunately, the short answer is yes. There is a provision in the law that says the president can declare an emergency. It’s been done a number of times, but primarily it’s been done to build facilities in Afghanistan and Iraq. In this case, I think the president would be wide open to a court challenge saying, where is the emergency? You have to establish that in order to do this. Beyond that, this would be a terrible use of Department of Defense dollars.”
    He added, “The president spends most of his time talking about how we’re not spending enough on national security, now he wants to take $20 billion out of defense budget to build a wall. Which by the way, is not going to improve our border security. The president seems unaware of this, but we have actually already built a wall across much of the border, and all border security experts that I talk to say, where a wall makes sense, it’s already been built. We should have a conversation about border security, but first, we should we open the government and pay our border patrol agents and the federal agents that are furloughed.”
