Donald Trump threatens to declare a national emergency to build the border wall

January 4, 2019

  Earlier today Donald Trump was asked about the possibility of declaring a national emergency as a means to find the funding to build the border wall and he admitted this is something he has thought about and just might do if he cannot secure the funding through the Congress. Here is more:

President Trump said Friday that he might declare a national emergency so that he could bypass Congress and order the construction of his long-promised wall on the southern border.

“Absolutely, 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,” he said during a press briefing in the Rose Garden after a two-hour meeting with top Democrats about the government shutdown and border security.

“It’s another way of doing it. If we can do it through a negotiated process, we’re giving that a shot.”

Asked if that stance was a threat to Democrats, Trump replied: “I never threaten anybody but I am allowed to do it.”

   This is equivalent to Barack Obama grabbing his pen and his phone to push through his agenda which he could not get through the Congress, only on steroids. But he did not stop there, he also mentioned he could use eminent domain to steal people’s land in order to build the wall.

  This is totally unacceptable to me! Can you imagine what conservatives would be saying if this were Barack Obama or any other Democrats who threatened to create a national emergency to push an agenda? Never let a good crisis go to waste…

    President Trump did not say he was stealing people’s land on Eminent Domain to wall the border

    The Secretary of DHS is working with border people whose land is on the southern border and purchasing their land for a nice price

    That is where some of the money President Trump has gotten so far has gone

    LOL – if Barack Obama had tried a fraction of what Mr. Trump is getting all sorts of rhythm on, you guys would be demanding that Navy SEALs storm the WH and drag him out!

    Take good care, and may God bless us all!

      Looks like the joke is on you because you could not have possibly read what I wrote if you think it is supportive of the President. LOL!
